5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting... May 16, 2008
I loved this show. It really made you rethink some long standing-long taught religious ideals. It raised some excellent questions. I was sorry it was cut short before it addressed or answered some of those interesting ideas. The dynamics between Peter Horton and John Glover were excellent and I loved all the barbs and word play between them. I can't wait for it to be released on dvd as a collection and hope they include some insight as to why it was suddenly pulled and where they would have headed next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Please put this on DVD August 29, 2008
I absolutely loved this show and taped most of them on VHS while they were still being aired. Sadly, my tapes are lacking and I would love for this outstanding show to be available on DVD. Amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is just getting stupid! Release the DVDs NOW! August 26, 2009
I mean fer cryin' out loud, they're releasing one of the earliest short-lived Fox series, Werewolf, to DVD, so what's the frikkin' deal?! The cancellation of this series STILL hurts and it's massively compounded by the lack of a DVD release. This is the series that made me appreciate the talents of Peter Horton, and confirmed the delicious nefariousness of John Glover, who is in my humble THE best Satan EVAH! The unsung star of the show, though, was the deeply moody look of it all, set forth by the brilliant director and co-exec producer Felix Alcala. The tones were muted almost to the point of rendering the show black and white, but it gave the entire affair a spooky, mystical feel that I'd not seen before or since. And of course the writing and acting were top-notch--does Fox ever cancel anything but the best? ;) SO many lesser series that went on for years longer have their own DVD sets, and as I pointed out above, even other still-born Fox shows are getting their props, so who would it kill to FINALLY give us Brimstone? Do we have to go to Hell--and bust out--to at last get a little love here?

4.0 out of 5 stars 113 escape...one man will bring them back February 29, 2012
By Dave
I remember when this show first came out. I was intrigued by the premise and decided to give it a try. I was hooked from the first episode. I watched every episode that was aired, some multiple times. This show quickly became one of my favorites. Sadly, it was cancelled before the entire story could be told.

Premise

Ezekiel Stone, played masterfully by Peter Horton, was a New York City police detective. He was happily married and was good at his job. Then, one night while he was on duty, someone broke into his home and raped his wife. In a rage, Detective Stone sought out the rapist and murdered him. Shortly thereafter, Stone was killed in the line of duty. He was sent to Hell for his sins.

Fifteen years later, 113 damned souls escaped their eternal torment. Satan himself, portrayed wonderfully by John Glover, made a deal with Stone. If Stone would hunt down all 113 fugitives and return them to Hell, Satan would free Stone and allow him to return to his life.

Episode Format

Each week Satan would appear to Detective Stone to provide him with a lead on the next fugitive from Hell. Ezekiel would then begin his hunt for that fugitive using all the skills and abilities he had developed in life as a police officer. Along the way, Stone would often seek out memories of his life, such as craving a Reggie Bar. On one occasion he even sought out his widow for the chance to see her one more time. By the end of the episode, our hero would corner the fugitive and fire two bullets into the escapee's eyes sending them back to Hell. For as Satan had previously told him, "The eyes Detective Stone, windows to the soul. Destroy the eyes and the damned get a one way trip back to Hell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful surprise back in the late 90s May 5, 2009
I first saw this show on SCI-FI channel. Sadly, it only lasted a short season before cancellation

Brimstone was honest, witty, insightful, and intriguing. The acting and writing were superb and the cinematography was somewhat unique at the time.

John Glover made an awesome Devil. I saw elements of his performance here in Smallville as Lionel Luthor. But this short lived show has lived on in my imagination as a wonderfully original piece of television.

Like "Firefly," this show was dismantled before its time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brimstone February 12, 2009
The show is so well written and exciting twists! A good quality show we can keep on watching over and over.
We are as an audience enjoy the ride of Det. Stone's journey.
I have a taped VHS on the series HOWEVER would like to have DVD set on a good quality.
This show is must see and probably will find new audience if the DVD is out.

5.0 out of 5 stars To smart for TV? July 5, 2009
Was this show to smart for the average joe viewer? I think so.

A great mix of dark humor, fantasic writing and spot on acting sent Brimstone right over most of the nealson veiwers heads.

There is some people that watch TV with an IQ over 50. Bring it back or at least put it on dvd

Buy it now on DVD!
Since there was never an official release of this series, sad to say, this must either be a bootleg of dubious quality or copies of tapes someone made from a broadcast. Again, probably dubious quality.
