|| COLUMBIA TRISTAR
COLUMBIA TRISTAR has released “THE JEFF FOXWORTHY SHOW: THE COMPLETE
FIRST SEASON”. The first season is generally well written and the
acting is impressive. A very young Haley Joel Osment, shows that
even back then he was a “future” actor to be reckoned with. In
spite of a few hilarious episodes the show never found a big audience
and even after a competing network picked it up for a 2nd season, it
still floundered, being cancelled during its 2nd season.
The show cleverly carried over Foxworthy’s “redneck” overtones,
absorbing it into a mainstream mentality that was never dumb, and
COLUMBIA TRISTAR has preserved the show’s full-frame ratio. Colors
are solid and even vibrant. There is great detail and contrast is
excellent, with deep blacks and grays. Fleshtones appear natural
COLUMBIA TRISTAR has presented a DOLBY DIGITAL 2.0 SURROUND mix.
There is little in the way of surround activity, other than in
complimenting the score and a few spatial effects. There are,
however, some separation effects in the front soundstage. Dialogue
is always intelligible and free from distortion.
Several trailers for other dvd releases are included. More
importantly, there is also a previously unseen episode!
