THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Here's the Full List of 285 Songs Cleared for THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE SERIES DVD Release...

TimeLife.comI've been posting news about this October's release of THE WONDER YEARS - COMPLETE SERIES on DVD for for a bit now, and on the heels of the box set specs on three highly detailed configurations of the set - Standard, "The Experience" and one that's being limited to just 500 copies - The Signature Edition - the big looming question has now been answered... a question that often plagues classic series' DVD releases: What about the music? The folks at StarVista Entertainment and Time-Life have worked diligently to clear over 96% of the music used in the ABC series, with 285 new song clearances added to the 116 instances of Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help from My Friends," which served as the series' theme song. Check out the complete episode-by-episode music breakdown, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Late Summer Action: THE ROCK FATHER's Explosive Netflix #StreamTeam Picks

The Rock Father is a member of the Netflix Stream Team"Daddy, why do you always watch movies late at night?" That was a question posited by oldest daughter a few days ago. "I can hear the noise from them coming from your office." She's got me there, and just solidified why I should be wearing headphones after hours. See, lately I've been streaming movies to my laptop while I do work from the desktop... including right now, this very second as Adele sings the theme song to James Bond's SKYFALL to my right, while I type these words and see them appear on the screen to my left. While my days have been spent largely preparing for the start of school this week, my nights are filled with work... and lately, action. Explosive action, the kind that just seems right for the end of summer, and in the time-honored tradition of action flicks finding their audience on home video, Netflix is keeping that torch raised high. For my August column as a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, here's some of what I've been watching this month... and these picks are #ForGrownups only.

Review: Disneynature BEARS (Blu-ray)

Released theatrically in-time for Earth Day this past April, Disneynature BEARS is a rarity when it comes to animal-based documentary films - one where the subjects of the film - the whole animal family - [SPOILER ALERT!] make it through alive. For parents, that means some worry-free viewing when it comes to enjoying it with the little ones, despite a little bit of peril here and there, which should be expected when dealing with (and teaching) nature.

Review: MUPPETS MOST WANTED (Blu-ray)

Download Muppets Most Wanted Recipes & Secret Identity It's long-been established that I've been a fan of THE MUPPETS practically since birth, having seen THE MUPPET MOVIE (1979), THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER (1981) and THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN (1984) on the big screen, not to mention being a regular viewer of whatever Muppets goodness I could catch on television - from SESAME STREET and THE MUPPET SHOW to FRAGGLE ROCK, MUPPET BABIES and EMMET OTTER's JUGBAND CHRISTMAS, just to name a few. I've even counted myself as a big fan of 1999's generally unappreciated MUPPETS FROM SPACE, so when The Muppets became a part of The Walt Disney family, I was excited to hear they'd be headed back to cinemas after a 12-year absence with 2011's THE MUPPETS. Thing is, as a parent, I don't get to hit the theatre nearly as much as I'd like to, and thus I ended up buying it for my little ones on Blu-ray, and when MUPPETS MOST WANTED rolled around this year... I missed the big-screen experience once again. That's ok, though, as the folks at Disney sent us the film on the just-released Blu-ray Combo Pack, and my girls are now old enough that by the time the next sequel rolls around, we'll be able to see it in the theater as a family...
