Summary of "The Complete 3rd Season - Nice work, HBO": I think this is the first time HBO has included a "play all" and a chapter set after the beginning of an episode, and it makes me very happy. I know some of you wonder why I make such a big deal about these two features, but they're two things I feel are very important to TV sets. I often watch more than one episode at a time, and the "play all" feature allows me to do this without having to navigate a slew of menus. Setting a chapter after the opening is great for those of us who don't want to watch the same thing over and over, and when you're watching 4, 5, maybe 6 episodes at once you really don't need to hear the theme song and see the opening each time. Adding those two features allows me to view the DVDs the way I want to, and that freedom is why a lot of people are turning to TV-DVD as their primary source of TV material. If HBO can bring the "play all" and chapter placement to some of their other sets then I'll be a happy reviewer.
Everybody Loves Raymond will end its 9 year run on May 16. If you're a fan of the show you should tune in, or just wait for it on DVD. (read entire review)
The Complete 2nd Season - Season 2 so soon? (12/13/2004)
Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - Season 2 so soon?": I could be wrong, but I think this is the first HBO release in ages that hasn't been pushed back. I'm impressed that they could get two seasons out in such a short amount of time; HBO usually does 1 season a year for most of their other shows.
I like the characters and the humor in the show. The dialog drips with sarcasm, and while it may not be the best form of communication, it provides a lot of laughs. Though it's a sitcom, I enjoy this show. (read entire review)
Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Funny Man": I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but HBO needs to start looking at how their competition is releasing TV product. They're doing the same things they did with their first TV set (Sex & The City), while the competition is improving on their previous releases. Come on HBO, toss us some chapters and a "play all," please. If I can grab the attention of an HBO executive at the TV-DVD conference I'll be sure to bring this up with them.
Everybody Loves Raymond is pretty good, for a sitcom. Brad Garrett is great as Ray's brother, Robert. He gets some of the best lines, and says some of the strangest things. The bonus features are quite good, and the featurettes were longer than I was expecting. Fans of the show will be happy with this set, but they'll probably be annoyed that there aren't any chapters and that the discs don't contain a "play all" feature; I know I am. Season two has already been announced for a December release, right before Christmas. (read entire review)
