I really enjoyed this series when it first came out and I was so glad when it was issued on DVD. As to the picture quality, I had no problems whatsoever, I ordered my DVD set in March 2011 and maybe they reissued the set since the initial release and improved the quality - don't know (actually the quality wasn't that bad).

Anyway if you enjoyed Parker growing up get this DVD set! highly recommended.

As happy as I am to find this series on DVD, I'm disappointed in the video quality. I'm not sure if it would have affected my decision to buy if I had known in advance how poor the visual quality is - but be forewarned - it doesn't look as clear and crisp as you might hope. I'm not going to be buying the other seasons until I hear the quality and clarity has improved.

The show is great don't get me wrong that's not the problem. The problem was when I received the DVDs they were in horrendous condition basically unreadable luckily I was able to clean them and they work. But I was very unhappy to receive a supposably new DVD in the plastic wrap and everything and find the discs in the condition they were in.

HASH(0xa5cdc708) out of 5 stars Probably the best show never released on dvd...IS BEING RELEASED ON DVD!!! Feb. 20 2009
By Daniel Sweeney - Published on Amazon.com
I have fond memories of watching Parker Lewis Can't Lose with my family on Sunday evenings on Fox back in 1990 when it first aired, and we all enjoyed it. Where I lived in San Francisco it was on at 7:30 right before The Simpsons and lasted for three seasons.

It may be nearly 20 years after the fact, but even now it holds up as a high-quality show of uncommon intelligence and humor, and is notable for being one of the Fox Network's early hits. Besides inventive storylines and a light, humorous touch, Parker and his buds are memorable characters, and the casting is pitch-perfect. The editing and camera movements are creative, enhancing the whimsical and quirky nature of the show.

And I, for one, appreciate the fact that this show is somewhat of a time capsule of early-90s clothing and styles. I was in high school when this show was on, and it reminds me of those days more than a little bit.

The 26 Season One episodes are hands-down the best in my opinion, and hopefully this set will sell like hotcakes thus necessitating a Season Two release. The abbreviated Season Three (only 22 episodes) is a different story, however. It is notorious in tv history as being a classic "shark-jumper"--at the behest of the producer, it changed its name to "Parker Lewis" (losing the "Can't Lose" moniker) and became more of a vanilla after-school-special type program no longer resembling the irreverent show of the first two seasons.

Here are the 26 Season One episodes in broadcast order:

1. Pilot (9/2/90)
2. Operation Kubiak (9/9/90)
3. Power Play (9/16/90)
4. Parker Lewis Must Lose (9/23/90)
5. Close, But No Guitar (9/30/90)
6. G.A.G. Dance (10/7/90)
7. Love's a Beast (10/14/90)
8. Saving Grace (10/21/90)
9. Musso & Frank (10/28/90)
10. Deja Dudes (11/4/90)
11. Radio Free Flamingo (11/15/90)
12. Science Fair (11/18/90)
13. Teacher, Teacher (12/2/90)
14. Rent-a-Kube (12/16/90)
15. Heather the Class (1/13/91)
16. Jerry: Portrait of a Video Junkie (2/3/91)
17. Splendor in the Class (2/10/91)
18. The Human Grace (2/17/91)
19. Citizen Kube (2/24/91)
20. Randall Without a Cause (3/10/91)
21. Jerry's First Date (3/24/91)
22. Against the Norm (4/7/91)
23. King Kube (4/28/91)
24. Teens from a Mall (5/5/91)
25. My Fair Shelly (5/12/91)
26. Parker Lewis Can't Win (5/19/91)

HASH(0xa5cdcb10) out of 5 stars Great show horrible transfer quality July 29 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
It is a good show, if you are looking at this you already know what its about. The only problem and it is a BIG problem is the quality of transfer to DVD. It stinks, I had old copies of the show I had made on VHS while it was on TV and the quality of those after all these years of fading is about the same or better than the DVD quality. When I first tried to watch it I thought my DVD player or TV was messed up, it was that bad. The worst part of the movie are the times when they froze the image and continue on with the talking or audio, at those points you really see how bad the transfer was... frankly I would suggest passing on this one because of quality of the transfer alone. Go look for a VHS copy of it and you'll find better quality than the DVD. VERY VERY disappointed.

HASH(0xa5cdcb88) out of 5 stars AS GOOD AS IT GETS Feb. 26 2009
By Barrington HOLIDAY - Published on Amazon.com

I gotta say, AT LAST!!! This is the premier and best sitcom of American Television along with Malcolm in the Middle. If you've not seen it yet, prepare to get hooked - this show is extremely addictive. Parker Lewis - a High School genius, not by books; but by creativity has a way out of every situation he gets himself into thanks to the "Musso excuse files" kept safely hidden on a football sized rolodex in Steiner overcoat. Meanwhile Mikey, has the knack for finding trouble, actually they all do; the 3 Tenors of high school sheningans and pranks. The principle Grace Musso, and her able assistant Frank Lemmer - who's official title as Special Obedience Helper steal nearly every scene. This is the show to escape into non-reality and just enjoy yourself. No big message here, just straight up entertainment. The cast is classic casting, everyone here belongs on this show and you will learn all about everyone important to the cast in the very first episode. And you will immediately be hooked. But the biggest star of this comedy series wasn't the cast, it was the special affects. This show was so ahead of it's time, the sounds and visuals, strange camara angles, Musso's "unopposeable thumb," the sound of Kubiaks 300 pounds walking thru the hallways of Santo Domingo High; nothing I write here will do justice for the genius of creativity this show had. But don't take my word for it, see it for yourself, and like so many of us who have waited long overdue, you will be hooked, and you too will realize this is as good as it gets.

HASH(0xa5cdccf0) out of 5 stars At long last!!! Feb. 19 2009
By Degrassirules - Published on Amazon.com
At long last, Parker Lewis is finally coming to DVD! This truly is one of the best shows ever broadcast on TV and it's one of the mysteries (and injustices) of the universe that Screech from Saved by the Bell gets a DVD release but quality like Parker Lewis (and Midnight Caller) have to endure fan petitions to get a well-deserved DVD release. Now let's keep the pressure on for seasons 2 and 3 to be on DVD!

HASH(0xa5ce606c) out of 5 stars Can't lose buying this one!! Feb. 26 2009
By lighten_up_already2 - Published on Amazon.com

I remember catching episodes back when this show was on TV, and I remember how unusually funny and clever it was. I still remember the one episode (which I think was a season finale) where the camera pulls all they way back from the set, and there's these two guys sitting way in the back, and one leans over to the other and says something like, "So THAT'S how they do it." This was a direct slam at the attempted copycat show "Ferris Buellers Day Off" which wasn't funny at all (unlike the brilliant movie).

But the real spirit of Ferris Bueller lived on in Parker Lewis, and now I'll be able to see all the episodes I missed. Now, if we could get Max Headroom and Shewolf of London out on DVD, I could die in peace knowing I'd lived a full life.
