The really funny and clever 1980 comedy Serial finally comes to Blu-ray!

Inspired by the Cyra McFadden 1977 novel The Serial: A Year in the Life of Marin County, Serial offers a satirical look at the lifestyles of California’s hippie-dippy, early New Age-ish 1970s culture.

Martin Mull checks out with Stacey Nelkin in Serial.

Viewed through the eyes of Harvey Holroyd (Martin Mull, TV’s Two and a Half Men), a man perplexed by the behavior of his wife Kate (Tuesday Weld, Thief) and their liberal-minded friends, Serial lampoons everything from feminism, free love and sexual politics to cults, motorcycle clubs and the random midlife crisis.

Directed by Bill Persky’s (TV’s Kate & Allie), the R-rated film’s ensemble also includes Sally Kellerman (Welcome To L.A.), Christopher Lee (Scream and Scream Again), Bill Macy (The Holiday), Peter Bonerz (Medium Cool), Tommy Smothers (Get To Know Your Rabbit), Pamela Bellwood (Hanger 18) and Stacey Nelkin (Halloween III: Season Of The Witch).
