Why buy a collection of episodes from a TV series that lasted a mere two low-rated seasons? Because Get a Life was so far ahead of its time, TV still hasn't completely caught up yet. Chris Elliott, TV's original jackass, stars as Chris Peterson, a 30-year-old paperboy who still lives with his bathrobed and perpetually embarrassed parents (the venerable Bob Elliott and Elinor Donahue, who was "Princess" on Father Knows Best). The first slacker sitcom subverts conventions with its unapologetically obnoxious and delusional lead character in this well-chosen quartet of episodes. Chris auditions for a local theatre production, "Zoo Animals on Wheels." In "Married," he meets, marries, cheats on, and divorces a model all in one day. He is a fish out of water in "The Big City," and a man stuck with his father in a two-man sub lodged in his own bathtub in "Neptune 2000." Since its 1992 cancellation, Get a Life has taken on a life of its own, its legend perhaps enhanced by the fact that it has not been widely syndicated. For devoted fans, this collection is the next best thing to a Get a Life reunion (don't hold your breath). --Donald Liebenson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This DVD offers a rare opportunity to some of us; the diehard fans of this sitcom, which appeared on Fox Network in late 1980s and 1990s. Read morePublished on June 7 2004 by Rama Rao

This show is a blast I recorded every episode back when it was on tv. I only hoped that one day I could have them on DVD. Why do they just have a handful of random episodes on it? Read morePublished on Jan. 4 2003

It seems that the episodes of "Get a Life" are being released in a manner such that the poorer episodes are released first to guarantee people will buy the entire set. Read morePublished on Sept. 21 2002
