DVD producer Paul Brownstein is classic TV’s answer to film’s Criterion Collection. For the first season of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., starring Jim Nabors as the hayseed Marine, Brownstein has included audio introductions and commentaries by the star, plus obscure archival footage like a David Frost interview with Nabors. Brownstein’s elaborate spe-
cial features can also be seen with fan-favourite series, like the Dick Van Dyke Show, Get Smart!, The Wild Wild West and Police Squad! Still waiting for the My Mother the Car special edition, though. JaimeJ. Weinman
