Out now we have some TV releases for you. First we have Fast N’ Loud: Speed Demons. I’m a fan of the show and watch it on the Discovery Channel all the time. This is sort of a “Best of” set which focuses on the Rolls Royce, Aaron’s white Falcon, a Nash, a 64 ½ Mustang, a Jeep and the chopped & dropped Model A. If you watch the show consistently you’ve seen these episodes before, but it’s a cool collection of the best cars. I loved Aaron’s Falcon and think it’s one of the best vehicles they’ve ever done. Plus it includes them trying to flip 5 cars in order to pay for a build. Fans of the show will love this set and if you’ve never seen the show, it’s a good introduction.
Next we have Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell. I was not familiar with this show and after watching it, I’m still not sure if I like it or not. There are times I found myself laughing at it and times I didn’t see the point of it. It’s an Adult Swim show so each episode is under 15 minutes and that’s a good thing, any longer and it might not work at all. The show itself is about workers in Hell. One has been there a while and never seems to do anything right. One is the new guy who shows up everyone and does everything right. It’s sort of like Reaper meets Clerks. Personally I wouldn’t go out of my way to watch the show when it airs, but if I got again on DVD I wouldn’t mind.
Third we have Married with Children Season 11. The final season saw episodes like Kelly becoming chaste in order to get a modeling contract, Al’s beloved Dodge needing a “doctor”, really good Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes, Bud getting a health inspector for the family basement “apartment”, and one of my all time favorite episodes, when Peg becomes Jasmin at the Giggly Room. The show ended pretty well and this collection is a must own if you have the other seasons.
Last we have Lethal Seas from PBS Nova. This focuses on increasing carbon dioxide levels in our oceans. The ocean has always taken in carbon dioxide for us naturally, but we increased carbon emissions, our oceans are becoming more acidic. Scientists are trying to find solutions to the problem including a new, unique coral garden in Papua New Guinea. I found this all very fascinating and it’s a story we don’t hear too often. Most of the climate change stories we hear are about rising water levels or melting snow caps, but this is the first I really remember hearing about acidic levels and marine creatures dissolving. Pretty interesting stuff and very well made like you expect from PBS Nova.
