I dont’ watch much television anymore, as the Internet is a harsh and demanding mistress, nor do I normally go info for many re-issues of old shows on DVD, but the Best of Electric Company set that was just released is completely owning my tv life now. Shout Factory (who also puts out Home Movies on DVD, bless their hearts) put out a 4 disc set showcasing some of the absolutely great material CTN produced with the help of Rita Moreno, Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby, Irene Cara, and an awesome set of guest stars.

Sure I dig it for the nostalgia factor, but weirdly enough the show holds up well over 30 years later. It certainly explains why I’ve had ‘Silent E’ stuck in my head for a goodly chunk of those years. Damn you, Tom Leher!
Please pardon my blatant shilling, but damn I’m glad I have this set.
