Under the Radar DVD of the Week: "Action: The Complete Series"
This week, the most offbeat DVD to appear on release lists is:
“Action: The Complete Series”
“Action” ran for only one truncated season on Fox in 1999, but fans of take-no-prisoners satire still remember it for its dead-on lampooning of Hollywood’s outrageous blockbuster excesses and cutthroat culture.
Over 13 episodes, a fearless Jay Mohr took on the role of Peter Dragon, the arrogant, foul-mouthed head of Dragonfire Films, and in the process created one of the most relentlessly vulgar and dislikable sitcom characters in TV history.
The season’s story arc follows Dragon as he reels from the aftermath of a disastrous, $150 million box-office bomb called “Slow Torture” and tries to save his studio from ruin with a lame action script titled “Beverly Hills Gun Club” that he accidentally bought from a novice writer.
