TV on DVD: In Treatment

In television on 03/23/2009 at 6:40 pm

Things have been a little slow for the past month in the realm of TV on DVD. But this week? Ayoy! Andy Richter is currently preparing to rejoin Conan O’Brien as a talk-show team when O’Brien launches his Tonight Show on June 1, but not too long ago, he had a culty sitcom, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, which is now released as a full-series set.  Also of note, In Treatment, the angsty HBO series following a handful of a therapist’s patients in their weekly sessions, is now available on disc. But the killer release is a title stuck for 40 years in the way-back machine: Room 222. If you’re too young to remember Karen Valentine as a dewy cheeked young thing and too young to remember when seeing a black actor in a leading role (Lloyd Haynes) was crazy rare, you should check out this classroom drama. I loved it at age 9. I was always smart for my age.

Now I’ve got to get back to my vacation. I have a swimming lesson at 2 p.m. to prepare for that daily dog paddle to the swim-up bar down in the tropics. I knew you’d understand.

Here are some other TV-on-DVD releases:
Midsomer Murders: Set 12
The Venture Bros.: Season 3
In Treatment: Season 1
The Riches: Season 2
Room 222: Season One (1969)

Craig Ferguson: A Wee Bit o’ Revolution
Runaway: The Complete Series
The Life and Times of Tim: Season 1
American Experience: The Trials of J. Robert Oppenheimer
