Miami Vice: Season One ($59.98)

Its undercover cops (Don Johnson, Philip Michael Thomas) preen like male models, and Johnson's mannered cool is sometimes laughable. Still, Vice's virtues in its 1984-85 season are plentiful, including offbeat guest turns by Bruce Willis as a cocky arms dealer and Eagles lead singer Glenn Frey as a jaded mercenary pilot. Among the extras: an incisive look at composer Jan Hammer's atmospheric score, which he aptly likens to "a third major character."

Full House: The Complete First Season ($29.98)

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made their TV debut as cherubic Michelle Tanner in this saccharine sitcom about three bachelors raising three girls. Eighteen years later, their smiles still make you melt. Extras include the original unaired pilot, in which Bob Saget's character was played by John Posey, and a Pop-Up Video-style episode that's interesting but awkward without sound.
