The Simpsons: The Complete Third Season <b>DVD</b> ~ Dan Castellaneta
5.0 out of 5 stars Someone has to say it, Sept. 6 2003
The three stars isn't for the show itself. The episodes are great and the third season really has the Simpsons taking off. My favorite is where Lisa becomes the bad school student when she thinks she can only be a homemaker, and Bart becomes the good student patrolling the hallways. The writers did some of their best work in Season 3. I just wish that the menus looked better. I like the first two season menus more.

Doctor Who: Carnival of Monsters <b>DVD</b> ~ Jon Pertwee
The 2nd story from the 10th season is probably one of the best of the Pertwee years. It combines a series of monsters, both up-front and cameo, with both seriousness and tongue-in-cheek insight.
Dr. Who and Jo land on what the Doctor believes is Metabelis-3, the famed blue planet.

The TARDIS has landed in a Mini-Scope, which is being viewed both by the government officials and visitors (two show people who have brought the Mini-Scope) to Inter-Minor. The Mini-Scope contains such specimans as Ogrons, Cybermen, the… Read more
Doctor Who: The End of The Universe Collection (Bo&hellip <b>VHS</b> ~ William Hartnell
5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY, July 15 2003
I give this collection 5 stars because the BBC finally figured out that sales decrease exponentially year by year of the unreleased videos (especially since now they are releasing the DVDs as piecemeal as the videos).
I wondered if the powers at be thought that these were the worst stories of Dr. Who. Certainly THE HORNS OF NIMON (and unfortunately on some levels even INVASION OF THE DINOSAURS) qualifies. But THE MUTANTS is actually one of the best Pertwee stories (another allegory with pollution, tampering with lives of others, illegal hunting etal), and I look forward to finally seeing MEGLOS in episodic form (Tom Baker in his second, more excellent, doppelganger role after THE… Read more
