Product Description

Amazon.com

When Just Shoot Me debuted on NBC on a Tuesday night (following Frasier) in 1997, the spirited sitcom had the feel of an instant winner. The casting alone was an inspired blend of talent from uniquely interesting sources: George Segal, the veteran actor best known for comic performances in such 1970s film classics as Blume in Love and California Split, was certainly overdue for a hit. Laura San Giacomo, a strong and intriguing presence for a decade in a number of key movies (sex, lies, and videotape, Pretty Woman) promised good things as the series' lead player. Wendie Malick, the former model turned ubiquitous supporting player on the likes of NYPD Blue and Seinfeld, had left an especially indelible impression on HBO's long-running comedy series Dream On. Finally, David Spade, fresh from his great ride as a Saturday Night Live cast member, brought a version of a popular SNL character (Dick Clark's supercilious receptionist) to Just Shoot Me, playing the haughty assistant of Segal's magazine publisher.

The show's premise was fresh, too, and the nice thing about revisiting JSM's first two seasons is realizing how well the whole enterprise holds up. Giacomo stars as serious-minded journalist Maya Gallo, fired from her job as a television newswriter after sabotaging a clueless, on-air anchor. Desperate for work, Maya turns up at the offices of Blush, a women's fashion monthly published by her estranged father, Jack (Segal). Maya reluctantly takes a job writing sex quizzes and similar dreck for Blush, but it's the snippy and vainglorious crossfire between the magazine's staffers, and between Maya and Jack, that makes JSM so much fun. Malick's aging diva, Nina Van Horn, alternately lashes out and unburdens her soul in a failing bid to remain vital in a youth-obsessed culture. Self-centered Jack offers Maya a father's long-delayed love--albeit on his terms. Spade's Dennis Finch chases leggy supermodels around the office like a pathetic loser in junior high. Another cast member, Enrico Colantoni, is very good as the likable but impulsive, womanizing photographer Elliot DiMauro, who becomes an increasingly important player as he and Maya develop feelings for one another in season two. Somehow Just Shoot Me never quite lit up NBC's primetime stable of hit sitcoms, but it did respectably well and now looks even better divorced from its television competition. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars a classic sitcom September 28, 2005
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Shoot Me: Must-See TV On DVD! August 18, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where the hell are the rest of the seasons?! May 28, 2007
Format:DVD
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!
