5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Every episode is a finely crafted GEM! Must Have MORE! 11 de julio de 2009

This series centered around a bunch of high school kids, the school Principal and some of the parents of aforementioned teens. There is no brief description of the show itself, though. It was, and thanks to SHOUT (we need ALL the shows! Shout make more now?) is again, proof that G-rated television can be funny, dramatic, sweet, serious, charming, hilarious, and most excellently crafted from start to finish while tenderly delivering very real and vital messages about love, loyalty, growing up and life in general.

While I have enjoyed several other series in their times, and some have humor that has endured through several generations, Parker Lewis Can't Lose is the most unique of all.
The actors were all brilliant and perfectly cast. The direction, lighting, colors, action, effects and timing were impeccable. It's not just a pleasure to watch, but to study!
A few years ago I fell victim to purchasing "all the episodes" on VHS, only to find they were bootleg and mostly unwatchable. I was crushed.
I found myself looking all over the Internet for clues as to who owned the rights and why wasn't this show available for sale when so much lousy "entertainment" filled the shelves! I wrote to Sony and begged them to release the series on DVD. No reply. (I didn't expect one.) As a last resort, I posted the title here on Amazon in a "wish list" just in case SOMEone came out with a kosher copy.
FINALLY it happened, and we are so grateful. We promise we will purchase the rest of the series as soon as you publish them; we want them all.
There was never a bad episode. There were and are many favorites, but never a bad one, never an unwatchable or boring one.
Each show is a gem unto itself.
Thank you, everyone involved with the Creation of "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", and the new releases on DVD. We've waited for you for 19 years.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Hands down.... 28 de julio de 2009

....The cleverest show about teenagers since "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis". "Parker Lewis" was essentially our old friends, the "Archie" gang, in yet another slightly mutated form. There have been MANY steals from ol' Arch and his gang over the years: "Dobie", for one, "Happy Days", for another.... those feeble animated attempts during the seventies. "Parker" was, besides "Dobie", the most successful, I think.

It's obvious....Parker himself was ol' Arch, Mikey was Jughead, Jerry was an OBVIOUS Dilton, Kubiak an obvious Big Moose, Lemmer - Reggie AND Ms. Grundy, Musso - Veronica, Anny - Betty...and look in the old comic books...one of the favorite expressions of the writers was "EEP!", a favorite of "Parker's" writers as well, usually uttered by Jerry when he was scared to death, (and just before he put on a dust-cloud-leaving burst of speed.) But Parker went beyond the other "Archie" copiers in so many ways. "Archie" always strived to keep up with the times as far as youth culture and relevance was concerned, and "Parker Lewis" specialized in this. Gags were kept very current, and episode themes were treated likewise.

"Parker Lewis" was one of a raft of shows Fox had on on Sunday night that didn't seem to have any equals on any other network, (except MAYBE ABC)! No one had shows to go up against "Parker" or "In Living Color", "Married, With Children", (although "Roseanne" came close there,) or "The Simpsons". Fox took this Sunday night and built it into the consistent top 20 ratings grabbing network it is today, and it's a shame kids get older and networks cancel shows, because if the cast of "Parker" hadn't aged, it would have been prudent to have kept it on Fox as long as they've had "The Simpsons".

There are commentaries on this disc for the shows involving the cast, including Parker himself, Corin Nemec; Taj Johnson, the actor who played Lemmer; Timothy Stack, Parker's dad; Kubiak, (Abraham Benrubi, looking like Moses,) Maeia Brewton (Shelley) and Troy Slaten, Parker's Dilton, Jerry....along with the ladies who played Parker's mom: Mary Ellen Trainor and Anne Bloom. I LOVED this show when it was on, and was always amazed at how clever and cheeky it was compared to other sitcoms. It was kind of the "Moonlighting" version of "Happy Days", with fourth wall-breaking, voice-over narration, and cartoonish sight gags that worked more often than not.

All I know is, I'm going to sit back, recall fond memories of my pals Parker, Mikey, Kube, Lemmer and bratty Shelley and enjoy seeing them carry on like they did between 19 and 16 years ago, when Fox was just an embryo.

BTW, oddly enough, as happens too often with star vehicles these days, "Parker" wasn't the vehicle that made Corin Nemec, the star of the show....the person who benefited most from being on the show? Abraham Benrubi!! Kubiak! He hasn't STOPPED working since the show was canceled! Nemec showed up on ONE episode of "Smallville" and had a running role on "Stargate: SG1" for a while. Billy Jayne, Troy Slaten and Taj Johnson never pop up anywhere....and I've been keeping my eye out. Mary Ellen Trainor doesn't work anymore, either, and she was hot as a pistol after "Romancing the Stone"! Timothy Stack is another cast member that gets a lot of work.

Why is it supporting actors always get the work from being in these things and the stars pretty much kiss their careers goodbye?? "Star Wars", "Amadeus" and "Married With Children" (Ed O'Neill doesn't get ANYTHING, but Katey Segal and Christina Applegate can't stay OFF of TV!) are perfect examples of vehicles where this has happened!

I'll always be mystified by this! But anyway...."Parker Lewis", as they say, can't lose....and neither does this collection of 1st season episodes!

Some folks say Parker Lewis is basically a Ferris Bueller knockoff. It's hard to deny the show seems to have taken at least some inspiration from that film but, it should be noted, that "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" took place almost entirely outside of school whereas "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" takes place almost entirely at school. That's a pretty major difference.

I watched this show with some regularity when it originally aired and enjoyed it quite a lot. Of course, it's hard to know how one will react to a show he last viewed at age 11. As it turns out, PLCL holds up remarkably well. The clothing, hair and myriad catchphrases feel a little dated and gratuitous at times, but none of that detracts from what is, overall, a remarkably well-written and very funny show.

It's hard to know how one who has never seen the show will react to it without the benefit of nostalgia, but I'd warrant they'd enjoy it quite a bit. The pop culture references are often unexpected and hilarious and anyone who doesn't develop a deep affection for the characters by the end of the first disc is one cold-hearted SOB.

I highly recommend this show and I'm ready for the second season.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great show, great extras, poor video quality 27 de julio de 2009

As everybody should know already, this is a great show that really deserves to be finally released on DVD. It's great fun to watch and wakes feelings of nostalgia.

The extras are quite nice, too. You get a half hour documentary with all members of the cast (except Melanie Chartoff, sadly) and the producers. Then there's audio commentaries for selected episodes, also with cast members, producers and directors. It's really interesting to watch and listen to.

There's only one disappointment with this release: The picture quality is very bad. There is a lot of blur, grain and sometimes even vertical lines. ALF and Full House, for example, have much better video quality on their DVD releases - and those shows were video taped, Parker Lewis was filmed on 16mm.

In conclusion it's still a great release - but only 4 stars because of bad video quality.

I remember catching episodes back when this show was on TV, and I remember how unusually funny and clever it was. I still remember the one episode (which I think was a season finale) where the camera pulls all they way back from the set, and there's these two guys sitting way in the back, and one leans over to the other and says something like, "So THAT'S how they do it." This was a direct slam at the attempted copycat show "Ferris Buellers Day Off" which wasn't funny at all (unlike the brilliant movie).

But the real spirit of Ferris Bueller lived on in Parker Lewis, and now I'll be able to see all the episodes I missed. Now, if we could get Max Headroom and Shewolf of London out on DVD, I could die in peace knowing I'd lived a full life.
