* 21 Jump Street – The Complete Series (VEI)
$39.99 SRP DVD

—–Officer Tom Hanson (Johnny Depp) leads his band of agents in the special Jump Street division by going undercover to infiltrate local schools, to put a stop to crime and keep students safe from corrupt influences.

This landmark television program co-created by Patrick Hasburgh and Stephen J. Cannell (THE A-TEAM, THE ROCKFORD FILES) not only served as the springboard for Johnny Depp’s career, but also dealt with timely social issues including alcoholism, hate crime, drugs, racism, AIDS, abuse and promiscuity. Each episode resolves with moral lessons being learned and justice being served. The smash TV series comes with all 5 seasons.

But that’s probably a coincidence.

* It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia – Season 14 (Disney/Fox)
$29.95 SRP DVD MOD

—–And the award for best… 14th Season is… It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. FXX proudly accepts this rare feat on behalf of the Gang. This is the Gang’s first nomination for Best 14th Season and first win. This award is shared by Ronald “Mac” McDonald (Rob McElhenney), Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day), Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton), Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito). The 14th Season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia guns for the Best 14th Season accolade as the Gang goes to extremes for the role: Mac learns a new language, Charlie does a period piece, Dennis attempts a one-act play, Dee cuts her hair, and Frank performs a death scene. This means a lot to the Gang as it follows an extraordinary 13th Season. During that epic awards push, Mac announced his true sexual identity to his father in dramatic fashion, Dee orchestrated an all-female reboot, Dennis reunited with an old friend (his Range Rover), and the Gang epitomized underdogs as they overcame the odds to win the Super Bowl. 2-disc set.
NOTE: we’ve inquired and been informed that, per instructions from Fox, the episode “Dee Day” (third episode of the season) is NOT included on this DVD release, due to the episode’s use of black face. The discs therefore include 9 episodes in all.

So put on your flying suit and let’s party like it’s 2062! 8-disc set.
NOTE: at this time I (David) am going to have a mea culpa, and admit to a mistake I’ve made for a few weeks. During that time, several of our readers have tried to tell me about this item, but I’ve brushed it off. Why? Because I had confused it at various times with two other Jetsons releases! A similarly-packaged “Diamond Collection” item with ONLY THE 1ST SEASON came out on DVD format back in March 2017, and I mostly thought this was that item. Also, a bit over a year ago the Warner Archive released a Blu-ray titled as “The Complete Original Series” (we noted at the time that the Blu-ray release did NOT contain the second or third seasons which aired in syndicated between 1985 and 1987), and I got it mixed up with this at one point, too. So now, for the first time, this brand new release actually contains EVERY episode of The Jetsons (all 75 of them, from all three seasons), collected for the first time into an 8-DVD package. My thanks to every one of you who helped to set me straight. And I hope you can forgive my confusion. I plead 2020, LOL!
