Weird Science Complete Collection
Via Vision, rated M, out now, RRP: $129.95 (DVD) What’s the guts?
Based on the cult 1985 movie directed by John Hughes, Weird Science (1994-98) is about two nerds who somehow create their dream woman, Lisa (Vanessa Angel), on their crappy home computer. Blessed with incredible powers Lisa can grant geeks Gary and Wyatt anything they want, although this inevitably leads to all sorts of problems. Watch the TV series and find out why one critic called it “one of the most dope, rad, illin’ and choice shows to come out of the 1990s”... although the use of the word “rad” is unfortunate. Anything else? Via Vision is to be commended for releasing this 14-DVD box set, containing all five seasons of the cult TV show. Weird Science Complete Collection has a ton of bonus features include audio commentaries. Grab some drinks and salt’n’vinegar chips and prepare for a hilarious sitcom marathon experience. Final word: The science of laughter.
