Product Description

Amazon.ca

When Just Shoot Me debuted on NBC on a Tuesday night (following Frasier) in 1997, the spirited sitcom had the feel of an instant winner. The casting alone was an inspired blend of talent from uniquely interesting sources: George Segal, the veteran actor best known for comic performances in such 1970s film classics as Blume in Love and California Split, was certainly overdue for a hit. Laura San Giacomo, a strong and intriguing presence for a decade in a number of key movies (sex, lies, and videotape, Pretty Woman) promised good things as the series' lead player. Wendie Malick, the former model turned ubiquitous supporting player on the likes of NYPD Blue and Seinfeld, had left an especially indelible impression on HBO's long-running comedy series Dream On. Finally, David Spade, fresh from his great ride as a Saturday Night Live cast member, brought a version of a popular SNL character (Dick Clark's supercilious receptionist) to Just Shoot Me, playing the haughty assistant of Segal's magazine publisher.

The show's premise was fresh, too, and the nice thing about revisiting JSM's first two seasons is realizing how well the whole enterprise holds up. Giacomo stars as serious-minded journalist Maya Gallo, fired from her job as a television newswriter after sabotaging a clueless, on-air anchor. Desperate for work, Maya turns up at the offices of Blush, a women's fashion monthly published by her estranged father, Jack (Segal). Maya reluctantly takes a job writing sex quizzes and similar dreck for Blush, but it's the snippy and vainglorious crossfire between the magazine's staffers, and between Maya and Jack, that makes JSM so much fun. Malick's aging diva, Nina Van Horn, alternately lashes out and unburdens her soul in a failing bid to remain vital in a youth-obsessed culture. Self-centered Jack offers Maya a father's long-delayed love--albeit on his terms. Spade's Dennis Finch chases leggy supermodels around the office like a pathetic loser in junior high. Another cast member, Enrico Colantoni, is very good as the likable but impulsive, womanizing photographer Elliot DiMauro, who becomes an increasingly important player as he and Maya develop feelings for one another in season two. Somehow Just Shoot Me never quite lit up NBC's primetime stable of hit sitcoms, but it did respectably well and now looks even better divorced from its television competition. --Tom Keogh

It's quite obvious that the other seasons will not be released, and it's such a shame because this show was so funny! You couldn't really ask for a better cast either. It's bizare that it didn't sell as good as other sitcoms. Bizare and sad at the same time because I would have loved to view the other seasons on DVD. Oh well, enjoy this only season on DVD, because it's absolutely worth it in my opinion.

I have so far never bought any sitcom TV Series. This was my first. I wander whether "Just Shoot Me!: Seasons One & Two" would be a great edition to be part of my TV Series shelve collection. And when it arrived... I'm glad I bought this!
Meet Maya Gallow (Laura San Giacomo) - sarcastic writer for fashion magazine Blush! own by his father - Jack Gallow (George Segal - his funniest roles ever). A day in the fashion magazine publishing company adds 3 other actors that brings the TV Series to life (Enrico Colantoni, Wendie Malick & David Spade) - with laughter that never stops and the value of able to laugh again & again without tiring.
With added guest stars like Kristana Loken (from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines fame), Jay Leno, Crystal Bernard, Carmen Elektra and more, plus a featurette and commentaries on selected episodes, you can't go wrong with this 31 episodes DVD Set at all!
Overall, this is a funny sitcome TV Series that I will look forward for the coming seasons. Please, please, please release them!

A MUST SEE TV show! I am so glad this was released in DVD format and I hope they release all the upcoming seasons as well. "Just Shoot Me" is a show filled with comedy and drama surrounding a fashion magazine. The characters are on point and no other actors would have been better.
Favorite Line in this MUST HAVE dvd:
Nina: We take inner city kids and let them be doormen for the rich.
Elliot: How does that help?
Nina: You know, if you have packages and stuff.
Hillarious! If you're a fan this is a MUST HAVE, if you're a WB late night re-run watcher, purchase this now! The special features are also wonderful, including crew commentaries and an interview segment featuring scenes from the original pilot episode.
You will not regret it, it is very worth it!

By A Customer on June 11 2004

Just when I thought that good sitcoms were a thing of the past, Just Shoot Me came out and made my life a whole lot better. Putdown humor is still very much in style and this proves it. I was very skeptical of Just Shoot Me in the beginning becuase it replaced Everybody Loves Raymond on Star World but only 20 episodes into the show (and 3 weeks of skepticism) did I realize what I was missing. Not only did I begin watching it, but I began recording it. I now have 12 tapes full of these episodes and now that i have a DVD, my viewing has only gotten better. Those of you who have watched the show will know that you can never watch these episodes too many times. For those of you who haven't seen this, buy the DVD now and improve your day.

I remember watching most of this show when it first aired on TV, and laughing non-stop.

Now that I can watch each episode from the first two seasons and bask in the wit and sarcastic comedy, I find myself laughing harder and more intensely than with any other sitcom I have ever watched - "live" or taped.

The combination of David Spade's heavily sarcastic comments with "Nina Van Horne"s self-absorbed wit and alcohol/drug references is an utter and complete winner.

This show is priceless. I find myself watching certain episodes over and over again and laughing out loud each time.

I can't wait for the other seasons to be released.

If you're looking for a real treat in comedy, this is the series to get.
