So you're telling me we went 18 years with no Parker Lewis to now seasons one and two released on dvd within months of each other? NOT A PROBLEM!
I am an unabashed geek of this show, and even though season one is my favorite, season two contains what is probably my favorite-ever EPISODE: "Stormy Mikey." It contains a great guest turn by the late Sonny Bono, who plays a record executive who sets his eyes on signing Mikey to his label. And he is not above employing nefarious means to accomplish his goal.
This particular episode resonated with me to the point that even 18 years later I still remember Mikey's heart-wrenching song "I've Known You all of My Life" from it. Probably because back in '91 I taped it off of television with my hand held tape recorder so I could listen to it on my walkman in horrible mono sound constantly. Yeah, I told you I'm a geek.
Anyways, this season has a slight tonal shift from season one. Although it still retains plenty of the hijinks and humor, it picks up a slight something -- I don't want to say "edge" -- that just hits me in the gut a little more (in a good way). I was in high school when this show was on, dealing with my own teenage turmoil, and somehow this show really seemed to connect with me. To say this show got me through high school would be an exaggeration...but only a slight one. As you can tell by now I am not the most objective reviewer when it comes to this show.Read more ›
In the episode "Geek Tragedy," Jerry takes a young nerdish girl from school under his wings and tries to mentor her and show that he can be as cool as his buds. When she leaves the nest too early his eggshell-ego begins to crack. "When Jerry met Shelly" is one of my favorite episodes where Jerry's secret love for Shelly is explored. But beware; the protective brother Parker is one loose who tries to stop the budding romance. In the episode "Glory Daze," an alumnus returns to accept an award. Harry Anderson of Night Court plays the alumnus role. In the episode "Civil Wars," Parker's parents have a couple's spat when Parker's mother (Anne Bloom) takes a philosophy class, and Parker's father, Martin Lewis (Tim Stack) feels left out and his `man's ego" kicks in.Read more ›
But if "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" was being broadcast again, we would tune into every show.
For now, though, we will joyously purchase the DVDs as they're released, even reserving copies before they're available, and hope that every episode of the show is put on DVD for our extreme enjoyment as soon as possible.
One reviewer noted that the additional characters seemed to be out of place, but I don't think kids spend all their time in school, the mall or working part-time jobs. They also socialize; they have hangouts besides shopping centers. I loved the changes, the actors and the excellent life lessons each show imparted without shoving them down ones throat.
I won't be happy until we own the COMPLETE series, not just 2 seasons worth of shows!
THANK YOU, SHOUT!
It's really sad it lasted only 3 Seasons.. Part of it is, that the show was way ahead of it's time.. It would really do well nowadays.. The other thing is fox forced so many changes upon the show by Season 3 that it was doomed to fail.. Still it was the best thing on TV back then and I hope they will also release Season 3.. But I think t hat's a done deal.. By now you probably noticed that I haven't talked a lot about what the show is about.. Well like other Reviewers said, it's a lot like "Ferris Bueller's Day off".. In this case we have the ultra cool "Parker Lewis" who, portrayed by Corin Nemec leads the cast, we have Mikey.. the Rockn Roll guy and we have a geek who still is in this trio of best friends.. Their adversaries? Mostly their principal and her goon.. Luckily this isn't a Sitcom in the conventional way so we are spared a Laugh Track. Well, if you are interested read up before you buy but I can only recommend it.. Nothing bad to say about this show.. If I the money I would promise everyone their money back if they don't like it.. Sadly I don't .. Still I doubt that anyone would be unhappy with this purchase.. Of course you should start with Season 1 if you haven't already

I can't say much besides...coolness. Presentation wise, they could've done with a better transfer. But they may have been limited with what kind of Masters were available. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Kindle Customer
