Hot Pursuit - Season One, Worthwhile At A Low Price.
on March 22, 2011
I just finished watching this 3 DVD set. I'm a bit tough on my ratings. There is plenty of action. I wish in many there was more verbal detail of what is going on, where they are, and the outcomes. One in particular shows a crazy chase (as I recall from Youtube it was Montana). On Youtube, they explain the guy gets 11 life sentances. On this video they just show they got him.
I'm suspicous too - to me it sounds like the same voice for the guy in the helicopter - no matter what State they are in - That's one busy guy or just a big lie!!
Of course the videos are not high quality - and that is not the fault of the DVD makers. I wish cop cars would start to install widescreen dash cams (I don't know if they make them.)
I didn't make a list of all the mistakes that are made by the commentary - but one example; They chase down a woman who's trottle stuck - she was traumatized - and had 4-flat tires - the narrator says they let her go on her way. HOW!!!! DUH!!
Another thing that bothers me - some of the "bonus footage" is the Same footage as the regular show - so some things are on here at least twice (as if I missed it the first time).
They added some background music - like some odd guitar etc. Not high quality.
The narrator is ok, but not like the voice of Stacy keech(sp?) or someone like that.
They have some moments where it Is the cop who is foolish, unlike "Cops" where the police get to edit out their buddies and their unpopular moments.
I have not seen seasons 2 or 3, and after seeing this one - I feel I have gotten my fill of chases - at least for now.
I only paid a few dollars for this new, I wouldn't pay a lot for this set.
Overall, I enjoyed it. Scott MacNeil.
