Meet America's top dog. He's Beethoven, the big-hearted, four-legged, wet-nosed star of one of the biggest doggone family movies of all time. Dognappers are hot on his tail when Beethoven, an adorable St. Bernard puppy, adopts the Newton family. But their little bundle of joy outgrows their wildest expectations as he reaches 185 pounds, romping and crashing through their lives. Charles Grodin plays George, the dog-hating dad whose outrage is eventually overcome by loyalty for the oversized pooch. With hilarious performances, plenty of action and crazy canine capers, there's no end to the fun or the laughs.

I had never even heard of this show before finding it here on Amazon, and my Blind purchase was a total Pay-Off!
I have always enjoyed the quirky wit and famous "One Liners" of Bruce Campbell, and boy does he deliver them in this hillarious short lived T.V. series. The show is set at the turn of the 19th century on the fictional French-controlled island of Pulau-Pulau.
Jack Stiles (Bruce Campbell) plays an American secret agent sent there by President Thomas Jefferson. While there, he meets his British contact and love interest, English spy Emilia Rothschild. Together, the two work to stop Napoleon and various other threats to the United States. When trouble shows up Jack Stiles quickly transforms into the "Daring Dragoon who is a mix between one of the 3 muskateers and sherlock holmes.
The sets are well done, and story lines keep you glued to the screen and the actors are brilliant. Vern Troyer (mini-me) from the Austin Powers films plays a madly insane version of Napoleon Bonaparte that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter.
If you have never heard of this show, but are thinking of giving it a GO.....you will not be sorry.
My only problem was that it was canceled before it was given a real chance to make it "big". But you get a good taste of it in this series and it does leave you for wanting more. A real Bruce Campbell Fan show; if you love Bruce, you will love this.
My rating reflects the content.
However, I have never seen a DVD conversion done so poorly. It's obvious they only had enough money to actually make them, but no effort was made to bring it up to DVD quality. SFX was pixely, sound was only 2.0. Rather jarring after years of HD everything. :)
But still - Jack. Is. Awesome!

Love this series. Too funny. And that opening title sequence is the best.Published 10 months ago by N N
There are very few things that Bruce Campbell does that I do not enjoy. Fantastically Shlocky and over the top as his best work is. Very sad there is only one season. Read morePublished on March 13 2013 by Bruce G Manton
Bruce Campbell at his best. He's so funny and the female complements his actions and jokes perfectly. Read morePublished on Jan. 18 2013 by Samantha K Krewulak
Bruce Campbell has such a humour that is both corny and witty at the same time. Very amusing. Not the best plot line or sesries but well worth watching.
