Featured TV on DVD Review: The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1

The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1

The Shannara Chronicles is a TV series based on the fantasy book series by Terry Brooks. The series of books has been going for nearly 40 years and has quite a following.

Can the series live up to its pedigree? Or is it wasted potential? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Perry Mason: Movie Collection: Volume 4

How do these mysteries compare to the original TV show? Are they better than the previous TV movies? Or is the quality dropping? More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Shogun

July 22nd, 2014

Featured TV on DVD Review: Perry Mason: Movie Collection: Volume 1

June 6th, 2014

After the Perry Mason TV series ended, the show was mostly dormant till the 1980s when a series of TV movies came out. I got a chance to review Volume Two and this week I'm reviewing Volume One, sort of. The six movies from Volume One are be released as Double-Features, for those who liked one or two of the movies, but not all of them. Are they worth picking up? Or is the full volume a better deal?
