Eight Simple Rules – The First Season. Paul Hennessy (Ritter) is facing a situation many dads are facing these days, working from home and dealing with the children on a regular basis. While his wife Cate (Sagal) is at the hospital, Paul has to deal with his three teenagers: Bridget, the cute one (Kaley Cuoco); Kerry, the smart one (Amy Davidson); and Rory, the Boy (Martin Spanjers). So Paul must balance connecting and relating to his kids while ensuring they don’t do anything stupid as they tend to do. I know, this sounds like the typical family sitcom. However, how many sitcoms are actually on the TV schedule? Also, you have the late great John Ritter and Katey Sagal, so that raises the bar a few notches. This bitter sweet season comes with a blooper reel. Click here to buy it from Amazon.

Silk Stalkings – The Fourth Season. Palm Beach, FL: a playground for the rich where the weather is hot and the bodies are even hotter. So when you have a murder with plenty of sex, power, money, and even more sex, you call on the two hottest cops on the force, Sergeants Rita Lance and Chris Lorenzo. Mitzi Kapture and Rob Estes scorch the screen with their chemistry while taking down some naughty perps or engaging in some witty banter. More influenced by Baywatch than Hill Street Blues, all 22 episodes of the fourth season is a well-oiled camp machine that will satisfy your craving for a guilty pleasure.
