Special Features


Editorial Reviews

In this earthy family comedy, Jim (Jim Belushi) is the macho Everyman who challenges his gorgeous and feisty wife, Cheryl (Courtney Thorne-Smith), with his stubborn manliness but contagious charm. Tagging along with this duo of happily married opposites are their three precocious kids. A success at his construction business and the family breadwinner at home, Jim feeds his other passion - blues music - playing with his six-man garage band. He keeps Cheryl in turmoil with his boyish bravado and ever willful antics, but their underlying love guarantees that they are in this marriage for keeps.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's good to follow Jim December 21, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had been waiting a long time to get the first season of According to Jim. I can't understand why there are other shows that are not so good but come out sooner. This one (and Just Shoot Me!) had taken a long time.

If you saw the show you know what it is all about. The Special Features are good, specially the part where Jim tells us the inside about the show, the characters and even the set up and mementos by the fridge that remind everyone one the set about their families and loved ones.

My only regret is that I finished watching the whole season already and there isn't even a date for the second season or a way to subscribe -like they always have here at Amazon- to be notified when it will come out.

Don't miss it. It's funny! Jim and his brother in law make a great pair. I like the fact that unlike other family sitcoms, Jim does wrong most of the time but you don't actually blame him but empathize with him because he is a regular guy not pretending to be "perfect... husband or father" but instead, the everyday family man that makes mistakes and has fun ... messing things up. I LOVE IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious..... May 7, 2009
So, since I'm from Luxembourg and have the opportunity to see this on German TV, it is the synchrone version. They have german voices. Well, I know Jim's real voice from movies, which I see in original version in Luxembourgish cinemas. Well, in Luxembourg we kind of are polyglotte.....
So to see this TV series in original, I bought it through AMAZON in the U.S.
I adored this. It's even more refreshing than in German. Apart of Andy (arggggghhhhhhhhh) always showing his fat belly to everyone, my favourite caracters are Jim and Dana and the two girls. So keep going James Belushi! And please, the next seasons quicker on DVD!!!!!!!!
And last but not least: all fans of Belushi, buy his audio book: Real men don't apologize. THIS is something to laugh out loud an sometimes also get a little moist eyes too.

5.0 out of 5 stars "live dangerously ... start a family.." April 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
we thoroughly ENJOYED this 1st season. when the show first started, did not watch any of it due to work commitments and our own family' craziness lol. the writing is superb and the whole cast is EXCELLENT. the chemistry of 'jim' and 'cheryl' is spot-on. the show's other family's nucleus, 'dana', 'andy', 'ruby', 'gracie', and even baby 'kyle' -each has their own moments. they're funny. we all LOVE 'andy' - he is so hilarious ... especially when he is around the 'ruby' and 'gracie' especially 'gracie'. i like the way, j belushi potrays jim. a loving dad and husband, but what a HE-MAN ... but, so 'absent with malice' .... he, obviously ADORE his family, love his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, yet being himself - all HE-MAN-LIKE but with a HEART!. can't wait for the season two dvd! a must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOOO HOOO FINALLY October 15, 2008
I recently got into according to jim on a regular basis. When the show started I was in college and was rarely around to see the show. I love how hystarically funny Jim is and I would love to have cheryls roll. I have always loved the Belushi Brothers and this show is doing the same for Jim as Blues Brothers did for John. I also love that Dan Ackroyd is a recurring guest star. I love the fact that I can watch this with my boyfriend and we both love it. I especially like it when I can poke fun at him for trying to get away with the schemes that Jim trys to pull on Cheryl

5.0 out of 5 stars About Time! September 30, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I, like the previous two reviewers, have anxiously awaited the offering of year sets for this hilarious sitcom. And, we don't have to buy 1/2 year productions like "Three Sons". James Belushi is great! Sure, some episodes are very melodramatic like most sitcoms, but many story-lines are easy to envision happening in our own lives. I rate this as good as "2 1/2 Men". Hopefully Season 2 is not long off. I suggest you purchase this series, something I rarely do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great comedy but missing episodes December 31, 2013
"According to Jim" is one of my all-time favourite sitcoms and it stills holds up after 10 years. Can't stop laughing!

However, when I started watching the Season 1 set, I noticed something really strange. There are at least half a dozen episodes listed on the inside cover that are missing on all 4 discs. I've tried to see if they're included on the special features or elsewhere but no luck. There are no discs missing, just missing episodes. I'm returning it and Season 2 (defective disc 1) for replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good ol Days of ATJ May 15, 2009
If you are a ATJ fan who misses the good old days(before Billi Bruno disappeared),this DVD is for you.Watch as she steals every scene she's in & puts Larry Joe Campbell(Andy)in his place in a hilarious outtake,oh the episodes are good to,presented for the first time in widescreen,nearly HD quality,I sure hope there will be more ATJ DVDs

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comedy March 4, 2009
A must-have for all fans of this fantastic comedy.
The first season is imho one of the best.

With some very funny outtakes. Also don't miss the other bonus tracks "behind the scenes" and "comedy begins at home"

One thing: The paper package lets it look a little cheap.
But who cares.
