Meeting Time Uncle Red!

"The New Red Green Show has been around now for 15 year. And like all good shows it is coming to an end this year. This DVD set is the 7th season. Possum Lodge is alive and well. Each episode is still entertaining. To me the show has lost some of it's strength. As Steve Smith explains in his Bios as The Red Green Show increased in popularity they were able to move to a building with more space and money to produce the show. But, they cut the number of characters down for each show. Seasons 4 to 6 is still the best of The Red Green Show. Although they were never released as a single season set. But, in one collection titled "Stuffed and Mounted" which covered the earlier works of the Red Green Show."
An excellent Collection - need to clarify repeats episodes.

"To what R.L. Towler has stated in his great review, there are more than just 2 episodes that are repeats if you have each of the "Stuffed and Mounted" discs. R.L. states that Stuffed & Mounted #5 and #6 are the only repeats, but there are two more.
As stated by R.L. Towler:
"The Good Old Hockey Game" (Stuffed & Mounted #5)
"The Splinter Lodge" (Stuffed & Mounted #6)
Don't forget that the episode "Town Mall" from this season also appears in the Stuffed and Mounted series. Stuffed and Mounted #3 and #4 also had season 7 eps on them. Also is the one where Red teaches Harold to fight like a man. Not a huge deal, since you are still getting 13 new to DVD shows.
This season set is great, and I look forward to more late 90s releases and beyond! A great price as well.

The Handyman's Secret Weapon, 1997 season

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This long-running Canadian comedy was popularised by PBS, but for those of us whose PBS stations do not broadcast this highly entertaining mock handyman sitcom, the DVDs are all we have. Steve Smith is Red Green, the host and expert on backwoods do-it-yourself projects, along with Patrick McKenna, who plays Harold Green, Red's geeky nephew and foil. Besides your guides, there are a number of colourful characters from Possom Lodge who are every bit quirky as the lead characters, including some very eccentric guests such as Graham Greene and Dave Thomas.
1997 marks the seventh season of its fifteen-year run, so I wonder why Acorn Media started here instead of at the beginning? Then I comfort myself with the realisation that I can't view these episodes any other way... It's a start (excluding the "Stuffed And Mounted" volumes and specials).
Learn how to turn two cars into a Hummer! What's better: curling or hockey? What do you do when you inherit 137 tubas?
Besides strange, fantastic (as in fantasy) ways to recycle old vehicles and appliances, the scripts are well-written, very witty at times, whilst heavy with puns at others. Usually I do not like puns, but if they are set up well enough, I do appreciate the effort.
There are 17 episodes, Red and Harold biographies, and production notes by Steve Smith. Let's hope the rest of the series will eventually become available.
For now, "keep your stick on the ice.""
