|Elmo's World - Springtime Fun [VHS]
Lowest new price: $9.99
Lowest used price: $2.39
List price: $9.98
The endearing, red-mopped Muppet is back for a romp through spring, offering preschoolers a potpourri of animated and live-action snippets showcasing seasonal favorites: birds, bugs, and bicycles. Elmo, the host of this vintage Sesame Street program, chats gaily while ushering in familiar guests Prairie Dawn, Ernie and Bert, and Grover during three 15-minute "chapters." Tongue-in-cheek spoofs ("The Loon Ranger," "The Dick Van Bike Show") are blended with general zaniness (think Mr. Noodle) to keep youngsters laughing as they learn. Catering to a child's short attention span, the fast-paced medley includes interactive games, sing-alongs, and engaging film of kids and critters. Especially heartwarming is footage of ducklings hatching and helmet-clad children pedaling without training wheels. In an effort to stay timely, Elmo's World charms its computer-savvy audience with references to the World Wide Web and "You've Got Mail," but there's no need: everyone knows Elmo is timeless. --Lynn Gibson

Three different police chiefs in three different eras become involved in a growing mystery -- who is the mass murderer behind the killing of transient youths in and around the fictional southern town of Delano over a forty year period? In this three-part, six-hour miniseries, Charlton Heston, in his return to TV acting after fourteen years (his career in television goes back to 1949), is one of the town's founding fathers and he has stayed on as a powerbroker as, successively, cotton farmer Wayne Rogers, racist Brad Davis, and college educated Billy Dee Williams become police chiefs over the years in this adaptation of Stuart Woods' novel.

Finally, parents will have something to pop in the VCR when their hopelessly addicted tots ask for a hit of the blue dog during one of the many hours it's not actually playing on television. This 50-minute video contains two segments that touch on several traditional tales, but focus on "The Three Little Pigs" and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." There's a little Elvis humor for the adults, but most of the jokes are aimed squarely at the pre-K set, who are asked to help our rugby-shirted friend Steve discover his evasive cartoon dog's favorite stories. With any luck, the video should buy you more than 50 minutes of peace as your child is likely to be inspired to engage his or her dog in porridge-portion comparisons or corner the cat behind the washing machine for a rousing game of "Little pig, little pig, let me come in." --Kimberly Heinrichs

|Apocalypse! The Story of the Book of Revelation (Frontline) [VHS]
Lowest used price: $89.98
List price: $19.98
On the eve of the new millennium, thoughts of doom and destruction filter through our Western consciousness, provoking both anxiety and anticipation. But where do these ideas and their symbolic power come from, and what do they really mean? Central to this concept is the last book of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation. It is a book filled with startling images of cosmic warfare between the forces of good and evil.
Written nearly two thousand years ago, many believe this ancient text foretells the end of the world. From the apocalyptic prophet Montanus--who convinced thousands that the New Jerusalem would literally descend to earth in the year 170 C.E.--to modern day end-time prophets, it seems that in nearly every age the Book of Revelation has excited a belief that the end is imminent. But the end of what? Ultimately, every generation has had to re-set the doomsday clock as time keeps ticking. Why does the Book of Revelation lend itself to so many, often contradictory interpretations, and what does it reveal?
Apocalypse! traces the evolution of apocalyptic ideology throughout the ages--from its origin in the Jewish experience after the Babylonian exile to its diverse and often tumultuous expression in modern times. This two-hour special invites the viewer to understand how these ideas evolved--a timely topic as we approach the year 2000.
This remarkable documentary from the PBS Frontline series brushes away the usual hoodoo surrounding the New Testament's Book of Revelation and takes a more scholarly--but no less dramatic--angle on the origins of Armageddon. Besides inspiring generations of frenzied, sometimes dangerous Revelation literalists (remember all that extra security in Jerusalem just before the year 2000 was ushered in?), were there any good reasons behind the apostle John's recorded vision of a cosmic war between good and evil, a millennium of peace, and the Whore of Babylon? Yes, yes, and yes. Turning to a handful of experts in the history of religions, and providing the audience with rare views of antiquities related to Revelation, the program shows us how John's fantastic imagery and references were built upon centuries of apocalyptic tradition. That tradition was born during the enslavement of Jerusalem by Babylon, whose mythological imprint on Jewish literature became an important step in the development of apocalyptic prophecy, most of which pined for Jerusalem's freedom. With subsequent occupations of the Jews by Greece and Rome, there were so many villains and so much hope to keep alive during these centuries of unhappiness that the prophetic arts grew and evolved, subtly codifying mixed historical references that led to John's mind-blowing tale. This is terrific, illuminating stuff, and quite helpful for a proper understanding of Revelation's context. --Tom Keogh
