“Hey, hey, hey, hey! What is going on here?”
The nostalgia juggernauts over at Shout! Factory have re-issued the landmark sitcom Saved by the Bell in a brand new DVD box set. At first glance, you might assume this is a repackage of the previous Lionsgate release (since they’re both called ‘The Complete Collection’). However, unlike their release, this set includes the precursor series Good Morning, Miss Bliss, as well as The College Years, and the TV movies Hawaiian Style and Wedding in Las Vegas. Making this re-issue worthy of the claim: “The Complete Collection”.
A major issue many fans had with previous DVD releases was with episode order. Shout has made a note of this problem in the 16-page booklet included with the set:
“We have attempted to present the episodes in airing order with the notable exception of the ‘Malibu Sands’ story arc, which is presented in sequence here at the end of Season Three in order to best serve the viewing experience for fans. Executive Producer Peter Engel was consulted on this matter, and he approved our decision to the present the episodes in this manner.”
The following bonus material is also included:
- NEW Documentary features: “Past Times at Bayside High: Making Saved by the Bell” and “Bayside’s Greatest Hits: The Music Of Saved By The Bell”
- Featurette: “Saturday Morning: From Toons To Teens” (carried over from the Lionsgate release)
- Featurette: “It’s Alright: Back To The Bell” (carried over from the Lionsgate release)
- Featurette: “The First Of Its Class: From Sit-Com To Icon”
- Audio Commentaries
- Photo Galleries
Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection is the definitive release for the series. Shout! Factory has gone above and beyond for this set, which should delight any 90s kid. Can’t recommend enough!

Join the club today! Long time fans should be familiar with my reviews for the new incarnation of My Little Pony. The latest DVD release from Shout! Factory is a compilation collection of select episodes, the theme this time being episodes centered on the Cutie Mark Crusaders (Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo).
- The Cutie Mark Chronicles
- The Cutie Pox
- Flight to the Finish
- Pinkie Pride (Not sure why this is on here)
- Twilight Time
Since this is a compilation retail release this isn’t really targeted at the older fans. This is aimed towards causal fans and of course, the younger demographic. So unless you don’t own the season sets or just need a DVD for your kids to watch, I’d say pass on this release. But if this title interests you, it’s available right now!

What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME! With Jake the Dog and Finn the Human, the fun never ends.
Available November 25th from Warner Bros. The latest Adventure Time DVD collection is the ideal holiday gift for any Adventure Time fan. The DVD comes in a special collectors case that includes a Finn Backpack. Other than the awesome collector’s item included with the DVD, there isn’t anything else. No bonus features of any kind. But this is more for the kids than it is the adult fans of the show who would rather own the series in seasonal order and in high definition. But if you’re like me and the backpack catches your interest, I’d say it’s worth picking up for that alone. Otherwise, skip it.
The DVD includes the following episodes
The New Frontier
Finn the Human
Jake The Dog
We Fixed a Truck
Blade of Grass
The Red Throne
The Great Bird Man
One Last Job
City of Thieves
Conquest of Cuteness
Who Would Win
Furniture & Meat
