    Equal parts CSI, Profiler, and Law & Order, Crossing Jordan is a procedural drama with plenty of action and lots of heart. Jill Hennessy stars as Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh, a brilliant medical examiner with issues. Still haunted by her mother's unresolved death and enabled (to a certain extent) by her police detective father's drive to solve crimes, Jordan spends as much time outside of the lab with the police officers as she does dissecting her dead clients. She is amazing in the lab, reconstructing crime scenes from the evidence left by the bodies. But she is less graceful with live people. Headstrong and unbending, she mouthes off one time too many and is fired. The pilot episode sets up Jordan's return to her hometown of Boston, where her former mentor Dr. Garret Macy (Miguel Ferrer) reluctantly gives her a job. He knows she doesn't play by the rules, but he's willing to accept that because she is one of the best. Hennessy--who made her name as a by-the-book assistant district attorney on Law & Order--is wonderful as Jordan. Intense, but also unexpectedly funny, Hennessy adds warmth and depth to a character who isn't always likable. She has wonderful chemistry with co-stars Ferrer and Ken Howard, who plays her father Max. When the two re-enact murders, it's easy to understand where Jordan gets her drive. But it's her scenes with Jerry O'Connell that add a welcome dose of comedy to the series. As Detective Woody Hoyt, O'Connell is charming and earnest--if a tad too overeager at first--and a perfect straight man for Jordan's wry one liners. All 23 episodes are included on this 5-disc box set, which includes commentary on four episodes and interviews with the primary actors, as well as series creator Tim Kring (Heroes). Some deleted scenes also are included, but their main purpose seem to be reinforcing that the editors made the correct decision with the episodes that aired during the 2001-2002 season. --Jae-Ha Kim

    Product Description

    Join a quirky team of misfit coroners willing to put their forensic skills to the test as all 23 Season One episodes of Crossing Jordan, including the memorable pilot, arrive on a 5-disc DVD set for the first time ever! Smart, conflicted and unconventional, Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh (Jill Hennessy) is a forensic pathologist whose obsession for solving homicides goes beyond the autopsy table. But the driving force behind her hard-core, unorthodox investigative style is the one crime she hasn't been able to solve—her mother's murder. Relive some of your favorite Crossing Jordan moments from this first season, including her battles with her boss, Dr. Macy (memorably played by Miguel Ferrer), the first appearance of Detective Woody Hoyt, music by Wendy and Lisa, amazing special effects, and Jordan and her police detective father putting themselves in the roles of victim and killer. From the creator of Heroes comes the fast-paced and funny mystery series that critics rave "is marked by crisp, clever dialogue, and a brassy lead performance" (Steve Johnson, Chicago Tribune).

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Dark and Light May 25, 2008
    Format:DVD
    It took some time for this show to find its footing and decide exactly what it wanted to be. Many expecting it to be very dark like "Profiler" or intricately technical like "C.S.I." gave up on it too soon. The pilot episode offered a lot of background and insight into Jordan Cavanaugh (Jill Hennessey). She was smart and pretty, and terribly messed up, haunted by demons from her childhood. She was also relentless in her pursuit of justice.

    Once she left L.A. for Boston, joining the M.E.'s office, she gradually found a home. By the middle of season one, the show knew what it was and many were glad they'd hung around. It became this wonderfully cool show about a small group of people in the medical examiner's office, Jill Hennessy at its center, who had formed a kind of familial bond as they dealt with crimes and their personal problems. In Jordan's case, who was searching for her mother's killer, the two often intertwined.

    There was a lot of quirky humor and fun mixed in with the darker elements, making for a great show. There was also a fine ensemble cast. Miguel Ferrer as Jordan's boss, Katherine Hahn as the always "glass half full" Lily, and Jerry O'Connell as Woody, the cop often at odds with Jordan, but sort of loving every minute of it, all brought something to the show's dynamic. Ken Howard was also good as Jordan's estranged father. But it was really Steve Valentine's Nigel and Ravi Kapoor's "Bug" and their interactions with Jordan which made the show special.

    They bickered, got in trouble, covered for each other, and generally had a life and a family thanks to each other. Crossing Jordan really hit its stride with the two-part "Digger" story arc. It cemented the show to its core audience, who stayed from then on.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One Awesome Television Series! February 21, 2008
    By Y. Sims
    Format:DVD
    Wow...this was a long time coming!

    This was one show that NBC truly made a mistake with in its abysmal decision not to return Crossing Jordan for a seventh season. Unlike shows that stay on well past their prime, Crossing Jordan was still in full swing and had a myriad of stories left to tell such as who killed Emily (Jordan's Mom), where did Max disappear to and why (Jordan's Dad), what was Dr. Macy's "demon," would Jordan and Woody finally get together and so much more.

    Crossing Jordan was an awesome television show on the NBC network. It lasted for six sesons and 116 episodes.
    Season one was a ground breaker in that it showed a female lead (Jill Hennessy) who was strong, smart, independent, beautiful, vulnerable yet willing to take risks to find the truth. Jill played the character of Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh with such aplomb, realism and strength that I was hooked after viewing the premiere episode. In fact, I never missed an episode in six years!

    A part of what made Crossing Jordan such a great show was the fantastic acting of its unconventional cast and the coolest music ever by Wendy and Lisa. You could not view an episode of Crossing Jordan without stopping by Best Buy the following day to pick up a CD or two of the songs heard on the show.

    The writing was second to none. There were no gimmicks. You were able to watch the characaters grow and evolve. Their weaknesses and vulnerabilities were shown and this only caused the viewer to draw even closer to each of the characters. No character grabbed a hold of you like Jordan! Jill nailed the role each and every week!

    Crossing Jordan truly ended way before it should have but thank goodness the network at least had the foresight to release the show on DVD.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Show That Still Had Staying Power February 17, 2008
    Format:DVD
    Crossing Jordan is one of the few series that was ended while it still had stories to tell. The early seasons developed complex characters with complex relationships and the stories kept you engrossed. Sadly, the show seemed to have fallen off its Network's radar in the last two seasons and ended with a disappointing episode. The cast was amazing and their characters deserved a better closing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Presentation/Beware of Copycats!! January 1, 2010
    Format:DVD
    I was thrilled to get the 1st Season and promptly sat down and went through the whole set that evening. I was looking forward to more Seasons, and was therefore delighted when a company named Global DVD....something or another offered me the entire Crossing Jordan series for $140. I jumped on it after reviewing their website and finding no reason to not trust they could produce. It appeared that even after several years off the air except for re-runs NBC is NOT releasing the rest of the seasons, which is sheer stupidity. But I degress; NOW the fun begins:
    (1) my local postman knocked on my door about 15 days later and handed me the claim ticket for something we had received from KUWAIT as it had to be opened in the presence of a federal officer and I would have to go down to the post office to make an appointment with said officer through the postmaster at that branch. And, by the way-I would need I was totally bewildered as to WHAT this package was.
    (2) An appt was arranged for the next afternoon, whertrein I met the branch postmaster, the FBI branch manager and a member of the local police. The bomb dog had already proved the package safe, and the federal government was primarily there for my safety (or so they said),she actually seemed to be a greatt person-even with this idiotic issue at hand.
    (3) Imagine our collective suprise when (yes,Virginia there IS a Santa Clause)16 DVD's spilt out, all with the picture of Hennesay that's on the front of Season 1 DVD. No Disc info identifying WHICH episodes were on which DVD's no play list- nopthing. The federal agent took them, with my heartfelt thanks-I can assure you. The agent called me back the next day, telling me they were clean of any subversive information, but assuring me I would likely want to throw them away.
