Must Rent


Parker Lewis Can’t Lose (The Complete First Season)

Synopsis: The series depicts the tribulations of the title character Parker Lewis, a Santo Domingo High School student, for whom nothing is impossible. Parker often narrates in shows. Just like his best friends, Jerry Steiner and Mikey Randall and his girlfriend Annie Sloan, his prime concern is achieving and maintaining “coolness” during the turbulent years of puberty. However, their efforts are often thwarted by Parker’s little sister, Shelly, and principal Grace Musso. (Source: Wikipedia)

Recommendations: How exciting that this is FINALLY on DVD!!! So many memories… I have to rent it.




Eureka (Season 3.0)

Synopsis: Eureka takes place in a high tech community of the same name, located somewhere in the Pacific Northwest (implied to be Oregon, due to the presence of Oregon maps and flags. However, Jack Carter’s promotion letter in the pilot episode clearly labels it as the town of Eureka, Washington) and inhabited entirely by brilliant scientists working on new scientific advancements for the United States government that frequently go disastrously awry. The town’s existence and location are closely guarded secrets.
U.S. Marshal Jack Carter stumbles upon Eureka while transporting a fugitive prisoner — his own rebellious teenage daughter Zoe — back to her mother’s home in Los Angeles. When a faulty experiment cripples the sheriff of Eureka, Carter finds himself quickly chosen to fill the vacancy. Despite not being a genius like most members of the town, Jack Carter’s ability to connect to others repeatedly saves Eureka, and indeed the entire world, from one would-be disaster after another.
