For the first time ever, the complete series of Steven Bochco& landmark drama Hill Street Blues has arrived on DVD. Originally broadcast on NBC from 1981 to 1987, these 144 episodes represent compelling and groundbreaking television at its finest.
Let s be careful out there, advises Sgt. Esterhaus every morning at roll call. And as the officers and detectives at the Hill Street station house patrol their citys streets, they must indeed maintain a careful balance between serving their citizens and inciting hostility from criminal elements. Yet as dangerous as their precinct is, the men and women of Hill Street often find that their biggest battles involve protecting themselves from the Public Defenders office, self-serving bureaucrats and each other.
An incredible ensemble cast (including Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz, Dennis Franz and Betty Thomas) and sharp, layered writing helped make Hill Street Blues the most acclaimed and influential series of its day. The winner of 26 Emmy Awards (including four for Outstanding Drama Series) and a mainstay on any roll call of the greatest television shows of all time, Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series is unquestionably a must-have for any fan of engrossing and classic television.
Hill Street Blues transcends its era to remain tremendous TV… Watching the entire series on DVD, available in this form for the first time, its amazing just how easy it is to get lost all over again in the world of the Hill, all of the ways that the show invites viewers to consider its universe of complexity and class struggle, complication, and compassion… Its in the cast of incredible characters that the show continues to resonate to this day. --Todd VanDerWerff, The AV Club

I give it 3 stars because even though I love this show, the disc leave something to be desired. They skip and lose sound in some places and there is no close captioning. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Patty Mc
I just finished watching the entire series after a month long binge (I'm retired and have the time). I thoroughly enjoyed being transported back to Thursday nights in the 80's. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Dan Sprenkle

I finished watching the Australian set and I'm very impressed. The picture is very sharp and clear and the audio is good. Either they started with very good prints, or they have done a substantial amount of remastering. The Oz set has 8 more discs than the US release, so I suspect that less... Read More
