Jesse Stone - Stone Cold

Jesse Stone - Stone Cold. The very first one!

The Jesse Stone made for TV movies series is great. Not only is this a perfect role for Tom Selleck, but a great story line in each case as well. When I first heard Tom was to play this role I wasn’t so sure. I liked Magnum PI, but this is a much different type of role.

*7.0 stars on IMDb*!!!*

Battlestar Galactica 2004
The story arc of Battlestar Galactica is set in a distant part of the galaxy, where a civilization of humans live on a series of planets known as the Twelve Colonies. In the past, the Colonies had been at war with a cybernetic race known as the Cylons. With the unwitting help of a human named Gaius Baltar, the Cylons launch a sudden sneak attack on the Colonies, laying waste to the planets and devastating their populations. The approximately 50,000 human survivors flee into space aboard any spacecraft they can reach. Of all the Colonial Fleet, the Battlestar Galactica appears to be the only military capital ship that survived the attack. Under the leadership of famed military leader Commander William “Bill” Adama, the Battlestar Galactica and its crew take up the task of leading the small fugitive fleet of survivors into space in search of a fabled refuge known as Earth

*8.8 stars on IMDb*!!!! (wow,  few series’ rank as high)

I am by no means a sci-fi person who watches all the sci-fi tv shows but this series was amazing. I think the last sci show I watched was Star Trek Voyager. I just finished it and I think it is one of the best tv series I have ever seen, sci-fi or not.

To think I never would have watched it if a friend had not told me about it. Definitely going to have to watch sci-fi channel and look into some of these old sci-fi series in the future. This was an awesome show!

The Librarian - Return to King Solomon's Mines

The Librarian - Return to King Solomon's Mines - 2nd Movie 2006

The Librarian Series – I happened to catch second Librarian movie by accident one night and after watching it was very impressed. When I heard the 3rd movie being advertised on TV I could not wait to see it.

All 3 movies are available on DVD. Click thru to see updated pricing:

The Librarian – Quest for the Spear
The Librarian – Return to King Solomon’s Mines
The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice

Wow! I ordered 1 & 2 so I could watch them over and over. They’re a wonderful mix of Indiana Jones & Davinci Code. Noah Wyle is a superb actor (I was an ER fan) and he brings much charisma to his role. I’ve always loved Jane Curtin and Bob Newhart and these 3 together are a magical team. I’ll be ordering Curse of the Judas Chalice so I can have the set available for frequent viewing. All 3 are entertainment at its best!

The 3 movies in this trilogy are: Quest for the SpearReturn to King Solomon’s MinesCurse of the Judas Chalice. Whether a 4th movie comes out is a mystery at this point.

*8.7 stars on IMDb*!!!!

If you have never bought the Lucy season box sets and you are a fan then you do not know what you are missing. The shows are in crystal clear picture quality and not like they were when DVD’s were first made and VHS’s also, these are so nice and remastered to perfection and clearer than what you will see on tv. I wont even watch I Love Lucy on the television anymore because the DVD’s are so much clearer that it doesn’t look right to watch it a little on tv.

Dharma & Greg lasted for 5 seasons  between 1997 and 2002 on ABC.

The premise of the show was a relationship between two characters regarded as cultural opposites. Dharma (full name Dharma Freedom Finklestein Montgomery, played by Jenna Elfman) was raised by hippie parents, a practicer of yoga and an adherent of Eastern spiritualities. Greg (full name Gregory Clifford Montgomery, played by Thomas Gibson) was an attorney from an upper class, old money family. On the first date, they married.

Only the first 2 seasons have been released on DVD

*6.4 stars on IMDb*!!

Dharma & Greg

Dharma & Greg

Trivia question:
Their first apartment was directly across the street from what famous San Francisco landmark and how do we know this?

—-> They live across from 261 Broadway. That is the address for City Light Books, which is the landmark referred to. You can see the sign for City Light in the episode “Old Yeller” when they first come down to the street to look at the bus.

By the way, it’s the same building but different apartment in seasons 2-5.  I mean, Jane still lived in the same building, so unless she followed…

Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows 1966-1971

Dark Shadows is an American gothic soap opera that originally aired weekdays on the ABC television network, from June 27, 1966, to April 2, 1971. The show was created by Dan Curtis. The story bible, which was written by Art Wallace, does not mention any supernatural elements. It was unprecedented in daytime television when ghosts were introduced about six months after it began.

I received my “Limited Edition Complete Dark Shadows Series Collection” yesterday and was surprised to find I was #411 of the 2500 sets made. The packaging was beautiful and I compliment the packer of the item itself. Each coffin case was lovingly placed in its own individual box after being wrapped in a plastic sleeve.

Amazon went that extra mile and packed the original box in another box and then that box in another with bubble wrapping to hold the box in place in case UPS or FedEx decided to toss it around like the Samsonite Ape. It was the most expensive DVD purchase I ever made, but good lord it was worth it and I would not hesitate to encourage a real fan to do the same. I started watching the first disc this morning and did not want to stop, but I do have to work I suppose.

dark-shadows-complete-series-deluxe-edition

If I could give this collection 10 stars I would and please … if you ae able to be choosy about where you purchase this collection. Amazon is wonderful, reasonable and care about what they are selling to their customers. I do look forward to the two TV movies being released in 2013 to complete my collection. Hopefully they will sell them together.

I, also love the way they did the case. We redid our living room a couple years ago with shelves for our dvd collection. Am going to move a couple shelves so that I can display this with the rest. Had started buying the series from a different place, seen this, had to jump on it. The price is unbeatable. If you were ever a fan, is collection is for you. Never seen it from the beginning when I was a kid. My husband and I are really enjoying watching this from the beginning. We set aside a couple hours every night watching.

“This DVD collection is perfect. Their are three disks for the first part of the box sets (three sets in total), each disk is in its own standard DVD case within the box. When you play the disk you get a basic menu (pretty picture and shiny stars) and an option to play all or select a certain episode (which is to be expected for a DVD set). The PokeRap is part of the set and the video quality is very good for this old of a show.

It is not HD or widescreen, but it looks very good playing on my Blu Ray player, I do have the fullscreen bars, but if you know your tv setup you can easily stretch the picture (I do not mind the bars). In all I like this set and am enjoying the series. I can not wait to get the next two sets to complete the Indigo League. Also, the episodes that others have mentioned as missing is missing (Beauty and the Beach). However, you can find that full episode on the internet, in English — Just FYI.”
