'Melissa & Joey: Season One, Part One'

As with culinary efforts, sometimes in show business, you just throw elements together and see if they work. In the case of Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, they worked in ratings terms for ABC Family ... and before the second season of their sitcom begins, the front half of the first round gets a video release.

The show is more or less an update of "Who's the Boss?" with Hart playing a politician who needs help raising two young relatives. Enter Lawrence as a suddenly jobless commodities trader who becomes a novice nanny. DVD extras: "making-of" documentaries; outtakes. ** (Not rated: AS)
