Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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 city’s 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 Defender’s 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.

Review

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

Previously, a box set of seasons 1 & 2 were available. The first box set had a few cool extras - the second box I don't believe had any. The third season was available on ITUNES and HULU and such places (AMAZON AS WELL) as digital only downloads. The entire series has been circulating around bootleg in crudely cut and shoddy looking VHS style visuals along with every ep having been cut for VIOLENCE and LANGUAGE?????? I don't know where these copies came from but without an official release one was forced to deal with them. The proper release of the greatest cop show of its time and maybe ALL TIME, all 7 seasons - one would HOPE that they would restore the (PREVIOUSLY ON HILL STREET BLUES) which were absent completely on the previous releases - and maybe, just maybe - we'll finally get the HILL STREET set we've been waiting for for all these years - I'm not going to pretend that this will have interviews with Bochco, Milch, Lewis, Franz, etc - I'm sure it will be bare-bones. That said - the price is not cheap, so maybe this really will be a lush restoration. But I'd be quite happy with crystal clear versions of all 7 seasons with the previously-on tags as well. PRAYING THIS IS REAL!!!!!!

SPOILER ALERT: I will discuss most (not all) of the aspects of the new box set here. If you want to be surprised, stop reading until after you open the set. I'm very explicit here as to what is contained in the box.

UPDATE: I now have the 2014 NEW DVD SHOUT FACTORY SET of HILL STREET BLUES: The Complete Series. Without "spoilers," allow me to say that this is THE REAL THING. If you've been waiting for a real presentation of this great series for 20/30 years - look no more. This is a very handsomely housed set of discs comprising all 7 seasons of the great show.

I give this dvd set of Hill Street Blues the complete series a 5. Unlike other complaints of complete series dvd sets having defective disks, or the packaging not being well liked, this is an awesome set in terms of both issues. The dvds are good working order, and I love the condensed packing of the individual seasons to make up the box set. I recommend this to any hill street Blues fan.

This is the show that started them all. If I can be so bold, we probably would not have shows like The Wire, The Shield, The Sopranos, or Breaking Bad without this classic. It still holds up. Not much else needs to be said. Get it and watch it and love it.
Thanks Shout for correcting Fox's really massive screw up. Now please save, St. Elsewhere and (if possible) WKRP!

I recorded all of the shows in the first run syndication, after having watched all the shows 1981-1987...when the first two years came available...I thought...at last...and been waiting almost a decade to get the rest (season 3 was online...at least).

The Greatest Show of ALL TIME. No questions, no doubts. Great character development, story lines that were real, and talent ...and loads of guest talent. Seeing James Woods, Danny Glover, and Alfre Woodard's incredible performance in season 4 that earned her an EMMY.

Anyone who has never seen the series in its entirety will finally have their day.

Thank you Shock Entertainment for stepping up and getting the rights to what TV Guide said is the Greatest Drama of All Time.

If you are old enough to have enjoyed HSB when it aired on TV, you will enjoy revisiting it in this collection. The DVD's all work and have good picture definition and sound. I can't get my 19 year old daughter to watch it, but my wife and I are enjoying seeing it all again, and there is something to be said for watching a 7 year series in the course of a month or so of evening viewings. We have discovered all kinds of plot twists and characters we were not consciously aware of when it aired on tv.

Brilliant series - unlike modern TV, it's not all flash with no substance. Every episode is a great mix of tension, humour and drama. Great writing and acting in each episode.

My only disappointment is the lack of subtitles with the Complete Series. I previously owned series 1 and 2 on DVD and they had subtitles in English and Spanish. The complete box set does not have any subtitles which is a real shame. I like subtitles as there are often overlapping discussions and arcane remarks (often relating to contemporary events) which are hard to catch now, but subtitles helped to make clear.

Fantastic to have the entire series released, I just wish they had added subtitles.

After many years of impatiently waiting for the complete series to become available, I am thrilled to be able to now catch up on seasons 4-7. This is the series that set the standard in terms of multiple story lines, complex character development, superb acting...I could go on and on! The quality of the release is very good. While definitely a product of the 1980s, it's withstood the test of time -- still very entertaining and not leaving me scratching my head wondering what attracted me to the show in the first place. As a fan of this series I could never understand why so many sub-par series ("My Mother the Car" and "Alf" for example) could be released while this one stayed under wraps -- it's been beyond comprehension!

Glad the Whole Series Is Coming Out
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
