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. (Sony.com)

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?! (Paramount.com)

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). (BBCAmericaShop.com)

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. (StrandReleasing.com)

Watchmen
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. (WarnerBros.com)
