Paramount Home Media will be teaming up with Nickelodeon on May 23 for the double-disc DVD debut of the animated hit series, The Loud House: Season One, Volume One.
Lincoln Loud, who is 11-years old, comes from a large family. Large indeed, as he has ten siblings … ALL GIRLS!!! Oh yes, and one other little ditty about his ten sisters, their names all begin, like his, with the letter L — Lori, Leni, Luna, Luan, Lynn, Lucy, Lana, Lola, Lisa and Lily (the baby of the family). There are family pets too, but they have regular names — Charles (the dog), Cliff (the cat), Geo (a hamster), Walt (canary) and Izzy (a lizard that belongs Lana, Lola’s twin sister).
With five older sisters and five younger sisters it is always a challenge for Lincoln, but somehow he always manages to hold his own. There are 13 double-adventures (each pair running 22 minutes), so there are plenty of examples of Lincoln coping with the challenges that ten sisters can throw his way!
Also on the way from Paramount Home Media are five complete television series collections. Leading the parade on May 30 is the 20-disc, four-season presentation of Beauty and the Beast: The Complete Series, starring Kristen Kreuk as NYPD detective Catherine Chandler and Jay Ryan as Vincent, a mysterious ex-soldier with a very sketchy past and an even darker secret.
All 70 episodes are featured in this collection, which also includes numerous featurettes, deleted scenes and a gag reel.
There are four — count’em, four — complete series collections that will be available on DVD on D-Day, the sixth of June.
In descending collection size, we start with the 31-disc, 117-episode (case files) collection of Numb3rs: The Complete Series, starring Rob Morrow as FBI agent Don Eppes and David Krumholtz as his math-whiz brother, Professor Charlie Eppes, with Judd Hirsch as their always-wise father, Alan.
Next up is the 17-disc presentation of Becker: The Complete Series, starring Ted Danson as the easily-annoyed Dr. John Becker, who runs a family practice in the Bronx. All 129 episodes from the series six seasons (1998 through early 2004) are included here.
Next up on June 6 is the 12-disc set of the Emmy-nominated Joan of Arcadia: The Complete Series, toplining Amber Tamblyn as Joan, who has a personal relationship with God — who appears to her in many forms.
All 45 episodes from the series two seasons (2003-2005) are included here.
And last, but certainly not least, Paramount Home Media rounds out the June 6 onslaught with the ten-disc collection of Father Dowling Mysteries: The Complete Series, teaming Tom Bosley as Catholic Priest and detective, Father Dowling, with Tracy Nelson as the “streetwise” Sister Oskowski.
Included here are all 43 episodes from the series three seasons, plus the feature-length MOW, Fatal Confession: A Father Dowling Mystery.
