Default Parker Lewis Can't Lose - The Complete First Season DVD Review

High school can be rough and tough, and throughout those four years, you donít always come out on top. But if your name is Parker Lewis, then you canít lose... and now, for the very first time, the early Ď90s sitcom Parker Lewis Canít Lose is available on DVD in a four disc set!

Parker Lewis Canít Lose premiered in September 1990 on the relatively new network at the time, Fox. It stars Corin Nemec (who would later go on to Stargate SG-1) as the title character that is the type of guy that has it all, and achieves that simply by being original. He gets by at Santo Domingo High School with a little help from his friends, Mikey (Billy Jayne) and Jerry (Troy Slaten). But Parker had a few people that always stood in his way, particularly his principal, Grace Musso (Melanie Chartoff).

The series has some similarities to the cult-favorite film Ferris Buellerís Day Off, although they are not connected to each other in any real way. Ironically, the same season that this series premiered on Fox, NBC premiered a TV series version of Ferris Buellerís Day Off, which ended up being canceled quickly due to low-ratings. But Parker Lewis survived the airwaves (with even lower ratings, actually, but it WAS early Ď90s Fox) for three seasons, and while never exactly a hit on television, gained a respectful and loyal audience that still enjoy seeing the guy that could never lose.

Great review! Sounds like Shout Factory did an awesome job putting this set together. I'm especially happy to hear that they got so many from the cast and crew for the featurette and commentaries. I'm planning on getting it soon.
