Charlie’s Angels: Season 4
Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett are long gone (though Fawcett makes a guest appearance in this season), replaced by flatchested blondes, Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack. Yes, the early ’80s were dark, dark times for this nation. (

Hotel: Season 1
Case in point: The series that made Connie Sellecca a household name for five minutes is finally on DVD! James Brolin presides over The Love Boat on land, with a cavalcade of stars like Scott Baio, Donna Pescow and … Johnny Depp?! (

The Mighty Boosh: Seasons 1-3
Zookeepers Vince (the obviously fancy one) and Howard (the allegedly smart one) embark on a series of bizarre adventures almost too weird for even Adult Swim (where you saw it, stoned at 3 a.m.—yes, it was real). (

The Ring Finger
Iris (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace) loses a finger working at a soda-pop factory, then moves onto another job at a lab that preserves personal effects forever. Makes no damned sense, but at least Kurylenko gets naked. (

The epic movie version of the epic graphic novel that was an epic bomb at the box office, set in an alternate 1980s with superheroes, escalating Cold War tensions and a pending apocalypse. Upside: No Ronald Reagan or Kajagoogoo. (
