9. Jesus, It's Christmas TV-NR CC

With greed running rampant at the office, Maya suggests that everyone pool their Christmas present money and give it to someone in need. Dismissing Nina's suggestion that they donate it to her favorite male stripper, Maya decides to give the money to Jesus Santos, the building's night janitor. Although led to believe that he's going to use the gift to open his own business, Maya is stunned when Jesus falls in love with her and uses the money to buy her a series of lavish gifts to prove it. Meanwhile, Finch begs to be invited along for a Caribbean swimsuit shoot with Elliott and a dozen beautiful models. When his pleas to be included in the trip fail to do any good, Finch decides to turn up the heat on Elliott by stealing his favorite camera lens. And though Elliott tries to resist, the lure of his lucky lens proves too strong and he invites Finch along.

Steven Levitan's JUST SHOOT ME remains a refreshingly-hilarious sitcom, thanks to pin-sharp scripts and top performances from a perfect cast. This box set includes the entire first and second seasons.

Young and idealistic journalist Maya Gallo (Laura San Giacomo) is fired from her newsroom job and has no other choice than to ask her father, Jack (George Segal) for money. Instead he invites her to join the staff of his fashion magazine Blush. Maya finds herself at odds with her co-workers including womanising photographer Elliott DiMauro (Enrico Colantoni), Jack's pint-sized insult-wielding assistant Dennis Finch (David Spade) and alcoholic over-the-hill fashion editor Nina Van Horn (Wendie Malick).

The first season (which only ran for 6 episodes) includes the controversial "Lemon Wacky Hello" where Elliott, Maya, Nina and Finch all fall under the effects of a hallucinogenic candy that Jack brought back from China. Other choice moments come in "The Devil and Maya Gallo" where Maya's strict moral code is tested to its limits; and "Nina's Birthday" where Finch and Elliott make a very funny wager.

The second season includes some of the all-time classic eps: "The Assistant" where Maya must contend with a very peculiar secretary; "Sewer" where Maya finally lands what she hopes is the biggest expose in the history of Blush; "Pass the Salt" where Finch's father (guest star Brian Dennehy) thinks that Finch is gay; "Nina in the Cantina" where Nina re-lives her greatest love affair and "The Kiss" which sets up the Maya-Elliott romance that would recurr throughout the rest of the series.

While some Just Shoot Me fans claim "the show got lame near the end," for me, the show was consistently funny up to the end. This was mostly due to the clever writing and the brilliant cast who after working together for all those seasons had developed that "TV family chemistry" that always made me want to tune in for each episode no matter what time slot NBC would move the show to. Shame on NBC for their poor treatment of Just Shoot Me.

However, what isn't poor is the first-rate treatment of this DVD collection. Great packaging with nice box and disc art which neatly aligns with the inner foldout background photos of the cast. All 31 hilarious Seasons 1 & 2 episodes are digitally remastered and unedited. I was actually surprised by the restored content while viewing the set, having grown accustomed to the syndicated episodes because they air so frequently. It blew me away to hear Jack's restored voiceover during the closing photo screenshot from "The Walk" episode as well as hearing Jack & Finch negotiate over the closing credits from "My Dinner With Woody" which were excised from the syndicated versions.

The extras are cool. The "Always In Fashion" featurette with show creator Steven Levitan and cast, the Blush covers photo gallery, and commentaries all complement the show and the set. Hopefully, the Season Three set will contain the original "Pre-Finch" pilot. Surprising that it's not a feature of this set, given how often its mentioned in the commentaries. Guest-stars include: Tom Poston ("Newhart"), David Rasche ("Sledge Hammer!"), Kevin Weisman ("Alias"), Michael McDonald ("Mad TV"), Harry Groener ("Dear John"), Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace"), Dana Carvey ("SNL"), Lisa Edelstein ("Superman: TAS") and many others. Overall, this is a great set, a must for your TV DVD collection!

The first 2 seasons were great (and deserve their 5 stars), and they deserve to be followed up by the rest of the seasons. Attention Sony, and any other idiot company with a stake in this series, who are dragging their collective feet on getting the rest of the seasons out the door: Get your stupid ridiculous legal garbage sorted out YESTERDAY and get the freaking season sets into production! We the fans don't care about who owns the music rights, or which actors had a rider in their contracts for royalties on the sets, which you are now arguing about, or whatever else ridiculous garbage you idiots are bickering about. JUST. GET. IT. DONE!

Don't tick off your fan base like Mad About You did to theirs by pulling this exact same stunt. I can tell by the sales numbers of Mad About You DVD sets that screwing the fans for so long has hurt the long term sales of Mad About You on DVD. This is how boycotts happen, you morons. This is also what prompts idiot teenagers/pirates to put up bootlegs of the seasons burned from copies of the show, onto their own DVDs, and to sell them on e-bay, and upload them to the internet at large. Please don't let the idiot teenagers/pirates win! You are LITERALLY in a race against the pirates. You HAVE to get to market as fast as you can, if you want to sway the mildly legally minded consumer who might be tempted to just download the shows (I am not one of them, but I know a lot of college people who are) and not wait YEARS for the DVDs to come out.

Do whatever you have to do to get the sets out. If it is music rights, then either yank the music out and have ANY COLLEGE BAND IN AMERICA do a new music piece for anything that gets yanked (and they will do it for free -- just to get their band name in the credits!
