Fans of Parker Lewis Can't Lose -- a witty early-90's program and one of the first hits from the Fox network -- had to wait an agonizingly-long time for the program to come out on DVD. Season One was finally released in June and it sold enough units to propel Shout Factory into issuing a Season Two Release!

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.

Parker Lewis Can't Lose: The Complete Second Season is even better than the 1st Season by a mile. Corin Nemec was one of my favorite actors in the early '90s - his comic timing was brilliant! Parker Lewis only lasted 3 seasons but what a treasure this little show was and they don't make dark comedy shows like this anymore. I highly recommend this unforgettable show about the misery and mindless pleasures of high school. Enjoy!

This is a TV spin-off of John Hughes movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Both NBC and Fox networks tried to cash in on this successful teenage movie into TV series; NBC failed, and Fox won in their bids to make successful TV versions. Parker Lewis Can't Lose became a huge success during the early days of Fox network and produced 25 episodes in the second season of its three year run. The story revolves around three teenage high school kids (The Buds); Parker Lewis (Corin Nemec), Mikey Randall (Billy Jayne) and Jerry Steiner (Troy Slaten) who handle day-to-day problems/setbacks as a team. Their adversaries are school Principal Ms. Grace Musso (Melanie Chartoff), school special helper Frank Lemmer (Taj Johnson), and Parker Lewis's sister Shelly Lewis (Maia Brewton), and occasionally school bully Larry Kubiac (a.k.a. Kube; Abraham Benrubi). In the second season the writers introduce a steady girl friend Annie Sloan (Jennifer Guthrie) for Parker Lewis, and the effect of this on the dynamics of buds relationship is explored.

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.

Take high school, mix in Looney Toones, even slip in a little bit of wholesome morality and you have Parker Lewis. Here was a teenager who could both endear himself to his peers and annoy those in authority namely Principal Musso (Melanie Chartoff). Parker had his close friends namely Mikey who was the rocker and Jerry who was the geek who had a coat that could do everything. There were two things that impressed me about Parker Lewis and the first was that none of the characters were malicious (devious maybe like Parker's little sister Shelly). The second was that the show was clean and that is something that you don't see much of these days. Like a lot of shows it was smart and went out on a high note.

This will be brief: we don't watch television anymore. We don't enjoy watching human stupidity on parade (aka reality shows) or violence. And news is not to be trusted, especially given who some of the sponsors are these days!
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!
