Judge David Johnson is very special. That's what his mommy tells him.
Our review of Blossom: Seasons 1 & 2, published January 29th, 2009, is also available.
Hey, did you know Blossom's brother used to do drugs? Prepare to be reminded of that fact…incessantly.
Mill Creek has 10 "very special" episodes of the hit '90s coming-of-age sitcom Blossom and the first thoughts that occur to you when you hear "very special" apply here: issues, emotions, hugging, and extended sequences of learning.
• "Blossom's Blossoms"
• "Sex, Lies and Teenagers"
• "The Geek"
• "Such a Night"
• "Second Base"
• "The Joint"
• "To Tell the Truth"
• "Blossom—A Rocumentary"
What Blossom has over similar issue-driven sitcoms like, say, The Facts of Life is noticeable: it's actually funny. So amidst the life lessons in these episodes, you can be assured of being entertained a fair amount, save for the clunky pilot and the surreal rockumentary.
But let's be straight here. Who's really interested in these collection sets? If you were a true Blossom fan the first two seasons can be had on DVD. What's the point of ten random episodes? For the viewer unwilling to make the commitment? And willing to plunk over a dollar per episode?
Not much happening with the DVDs: a mediocre full-frame transfer, 2.0 stereo mix, and nothing else.
Just seems like a needless release. Give Blossom her due and fork over the greenbacks for the season sets.
