Clarissa Explains It All The Complete Series 5 Seasons with 65 Episodes on 5 Blu-ray Discs in 720p HD
This contains all 65 episodes that have been cleaned, enhanced and upscaled to 720p HD.
There is one episode “Sam in Love” which does have 2 video imperfections they do not last long I have tried to clean them to the best of my ability to minimize the issue it starts at 12:35-12:55 which is a 30 second imperfection. 22:15-22:23 which is an 8 second imperfection.
Please note “Sam in Love” and “Total TV” are the only two episodes sourced from TV.
This is a solid set in great quality and in my opinion the best version out there. Episodes are presented in air date order.
The screenshots are taken from my 60” LCD TV with an iPhone playing on a standard Blu-ray player. This set comes with an interactive menu system that lets you choose the episode you like with chapter skips within each and a play all feature to play the whole disc.
The main characters in the show are Clarissa Darling, her family (consisting of her father Marshall, her mother Janet, and her younger brother Ferguson) and her best friend Sam, all living in a small, unnamed suburban town. Clarissa had a pet baby alligator, Elvis, which she kept in a kiddie-sandbox and appeared sporadically in early episodes.
Clarissa was credited with becoming the first Nickelodeon series to feature a female lead, which led the network to create other shows such as The Secret World of Alex Mack, The Amanda Show and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. Its popularity among both boys and girls also helped to debunk a myth that a children’s series with a female lead would not appeal to boys.
Clarissa dealt with normal adolescent issues such as first crushes, getting a driver’s license and preparing for college and working. These topics were dealt with far less dramatically than they were on other similar shows at the time (such as Full House and Blossom). For instance, in one episode Clarissa accidentally shoplifts a piece of lingerie but is neither caught by store security nor punished by her parents; she spends most of the episode trying to figure out how to remedy the situation on her own. Although terms like “hell” and “sex drive” were occasionally uttered during the show’s run, most dialogue was kept family-friendly. One running gag involved her friend Sam often entering the scene by a ladder (accompanied by a characteristic chord of guitar music) through her bedroom window. A repeating theme during the series was the sibling rivalry between Clarissa and Ferguson, showing their repeated attempts to harm or even (as in the series premiere) to “kill” each other.
Unique to the show was Clarissa’s tendency to tackle the episode’s central theme through the creation of a fictional video game. The show also integrated some of Hart’s real-life likes, such as the band They Might Be Giants.
