Maude: The Complete Series

Uncompromising, enterprising, anything but tranquilizing…

Television history has given us many memorable, amazing women… and then there’s Maude. Bea Arthur (The Golden Girls) stars as the feisty and funny title character in Maude: The Complete Series, finally available on DVD from Shout! Factory.

Created by Norman Lear (All In The Family), Maude pushed the boundaries for network television during its six-year network run from 1972 to 1978. Often controversial and always refreshingly honest, the series never shied away from tackling the topical issues of the day, yet its depth of character and humor left audiences laughing all the way.

Decades after its initial broadcast, Maude remains a benchmark in television for its sharp, intelligent writing, impressive supporting cast (including Bill Macy, Adrienne Barbeau, Conrad Bain and Rue McClanahan) – and of course, the amazing Ms. Arthur. In a role that earned her a well-deserved Emmy® award, Bea Arthur created an indelible portrait of a fiercely liberated woman, paving the way for other noteworthy, female-driven sitcoms from Roseanne and Murphy Brown to 30 Rock.

Right on, Maude!

WKRP In Cincinnati: Season One

The '70s ushered in a whole new era of rock 'n' roll and soul. And no one spun the hits better than Cincinnati's own WKRP! But while its airwaves carried pure bliss, this iconic radio station was total anarchy behind the scenes! With its on-air personalities — slick Dr. Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman), hip Venus Flytrap (Tim Reid) and nebbish news anchor Les Nessman (Richard Sanders) — and smart program director Andy (Gary Sandy), ingénue Bailey (Jan Smithers), indecisive manager Carlson (Gordon Jump), unscrupulous advertising executive Herb (Frank Bonner) and, of course, the station's lovely receptionist, Jennifer (Loni Anderson), WKRP In Cincinnati gives you a whole new appreciation for the hilarity of radio!

Includes all 22 episodes of this classic sitcom's first season!

WKRP In Cincinnati: Season Two

When it comes to the music on-air, nobody does it better than WKRP In Cincinnati. Behind the scenes, however…that's another story! Join Andy (Gary Sandy), the station's program director, as he tries to cope with the wild and crazy antics of the WKRP crew, including its DJs Dr. Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman) and Venus Flytrap (Tim Reid), news anchor Les Nessman (Richard Sanders), clueless manager Carlson (Gordon Jump), slimy advertising executive Herb (Frank Bonner), young journalist Bailey (Jan Smithers) and the station's lovely receptionist, Jennifer (Loni Anderson). Between the classic tunes and hilarious comedy, WKRP In Cincinnati is the only sitcom that will have you tapping your toes while you're slapping your knee!

Aguirre, The Wrath Of God

"**** – Werner Herzog's Aguirre, the Wrath of God is one of the great haunting visions of the cinema." – Roger Ebert

In the mid-16th century, after annihilating the Incan empire, Gonzalo Pizarro (Allejandro Repullés) leads his army of conquistadors over the Andes into the heart of the most savage environment on earth in search of the fabled City of Gold, El Dorado. As the soldiers battle starvation, Indians, the forces of nature, and each other, Don Lope de Aguirre (Klaus Kinski), "The Wrath of God," is consumed with visions of conquering all of South America and revolts, leading his own army down a treacherous river on a doomed quest into oblivion.

Featuring a seething, controlled performance from Klaus Kinski, this masterpiece from director Werner Herzog is an unforgettable portrait of madness and power.
