Stacey Colbert Messing is a ditzy freelance writer desperate to move away from her parents. So what happens one week after these strangers meet? They become in-name-only newlyweds with a great new job and a terrific view of Central Park. This three-disc DVD set includes all 24 hilarious episodes. Although the screwball sitcom only lasted for two seasons, it confirmed that Church Flying Blind , Wings deserved the promotion to lead and that Messing NYPD Blue was a talent to watch.
In the pilot, mutual friends introduce the couple. It's dislike at first sight. Ned is a self-satisfied ad exec and Stacey is a free-spirited freelance writer. He needs a wife to advance his career and she can't afford her own apartment, so they embark on a marriage of convenience. During the first year, the newlyweds will learn a lot about matrimony.
In "Portrait of a Marriage," for instance, they'll find that their relationship, unconventional as it is, is actually pretty healthy compared to Ned's colleagues' highly dysfunctional unions. As Ned puts it, theirs is "a marriage minus the love, sex, and intimacy, which Executive producer Michael J.

Please try again later. As usual Shout Factory puts out another great set. The set features six discs. Three for season one, and three for season two marked as season one disc one through three and then season two disc four through six. I am not sure if this one done on purpose or a misprint in the art work. When we open up the package the case is clear, and an episode guide is listed on the reverse of the artwork. They even make note of which episodes were unaired.
This again lists the discs as mentioned above. The disc artwork is nice, colorful, and different for each disc. The only downside is that you have to take the discs out to read the guide. Putting a disc in we get a Play All as well as an episode list while the theme song plays. Disc one features the extra. There are eight episodes on disc one. The set also includes audio commentary on the pilot and a retrospective. Proved foolish by many other shows. That said, this is a wonderful collection because it contains eleven episodes, all great, that have never been aired.
Creator Michael Weithorn managed to bring beautiful closure to the series despite the elenth hour guillotine. The second season, seen here for the first time, pulls Ned out of the office a bit and focuses scenes at the Muffin Shop that Amanda and Ned bought together.
It also allows the addition of a few semi-regulars as customers and employees. All of whom are stellar. Oh, yes. The writing staff is also stellar. Greg Germann is funny in a skilled, well timed, hysterical way that balances like a scale against boisterous Church. The gem is Nadia Dajani, who can go from sweet to bitch in 5 seconds, and is the common sense character surrounded by loonies and out of love is often pushed to the brink.
The series could have run another season but the future was predictable given the finale. I remember when Ned and Stacey was on TV. I enjoyed the show and was sad when it was cancelled. When Shout Factory released the complete series I was ecstatic. I still enjoy the show, it is more corny than I remember, but still makes me chuckle. The one thing that does bug me though is the video quality I am not going to guess on the technical reasons for this. I wouldn't let the video transfer quality prevent you from purchasing this set if you are a fan of the series, I don't, but I am disappointed in the quality.
You could say the 90's was the golden age of the single camera sitcom, and Ned and Stacey was a good example of what the form is capable of achieving. The writing is really sharp, and the cast gelled quickly.
