The Grooviest DVDs of 2013

2013 was not a great year for DVDs of my favorite classic films or television series (still no Maude or Flamingo Road), but the following two releases did make me happy (click on a title for more info):

1) Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman: The Complete Series
God Bless Shout! Factory for releasing all 325 episodes of Norman Lear’s soap opera satire starring Louise Lasser, Mary Kay Place, Dody Goodman, Debralee Scott, Greg Mullavey, Graham Jarvis, Dabney Coleman, Martin Mull and Bruce Solomon as the sexy Sgt. Foley.

2) China Beach: The Complete Series
Thank you, Time Life, for releasing this wonderful Vietnam-era drama that aired on ABC from 1988 to 1991 (Seasons 1 and 2 are also available separately on DVD). Both Dana Delany and Marg Helgenberger deservedly won Emmys for their memorable performances.

And at the top of my DVD Want List for 2014 is Shout! Factory's spring release of Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series and the Second and Third Seasons of Bob Newhart's 1982-90 sitcom, Newhart. Also, Olive Films will be releasing Robert Altman's 1982 film, Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, starring Cher, Karen Black and Sandy Dennis.
