5.0 out of 5 stars Selleck Shines as Parker's World-Weary Police Chief... October 18, 2007
Verified Purchase
If a role ever 'fit' an actor perfectly, Robert B. Parker's alcoholic, laconic ex-L.A. cop/small town Police Chief Jesse Stone 'fits' Tom Selleck. Paunchier and more careworn than in his "Magnum" days, Selleck has become a superb character actor, and this series of TV-movies offers him at the 'top of his game'.

While murder is the theme of each film, the stories are even more enjoyable as character studies of a man rebuilding his life. Divorced, but still holding long phone conversations with his ex-wife, Stone has turned to whiskey for solace, costing him his job with the L.A.P.D., but not yet diminishing his skills to a point where he can't get a strong endorsement for the position of Police Chief of tiny Paradise, Massachusetts, a coastal town near Boston. The first film of the series, "Stone Cold", presents him already in place as Chief; it's success led to "Jesse Stone: Night Passage", a prequel detailing his arrival in Paradise, the murder of the previous Chief, and the death of his beloved dog; the third film of this collection, "Jesse Stone: A Death in Paradise", the follow-up to "Stone Cold", finds him attempting to deal with his alcoholism, while investigating the death of a teen-aged girl.

Best of all, for fans of this series, a fourth film aired in 2007, with a fifth TV-movie in production for 2008.

If you are a fan of Parker's novels, Tom Selleck, or murder mysteries rich in character development, "The Jesse Stone Film Collection" deserves a place on your shelf!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chief Jesse Stone Lives July 17, 2007
Excellent series based on the Robert Parker books. Tom Selleck plays Chief Jesse Stone. The movies are well done productions with superb acting, beautiful scenery, and good music. The quality of the DVDs is first class. These are the first three DVDs to be released. The stories cover how Stone lost his job for drinking on the job in L.A. to him resolving cases as Chief of the Paradise, Massachusetts police. The movies aren't full of action, but they more than make up for that in acting, storylines, and scenery. The supporting cast includes Viola Davis and Kohl Sudduth. They have guest stars like Saul Rubinek and Stephen Baldwin. I highly recommend this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars tom selleck=jesse stone September 9, 2007
this has to be the epitome of good casting, Selleck may be in the singular best role of his career not withstanding,his part of Matthew Quigley in "Quigley down under", or that of the 80's superb Magnum p.i.,also see his work in the Sacketts,all pieces fit to be remembered and awarded.this time there is more to be seen of the formation of a character,not all nice but, that truely reflects life doesn't it?. No this is serial extention of a role at its best, and the fact that the supporting cast are all positively studied is a bonus to the completeness, they make me look forward to the rest of the stories as they appear,my final plaudit is for the wonderful writing of Robert B. Parker, great stuff for a winters night or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Selleck, Robert Parker What Can You Say August 8, 2007
Written by Robert Parker (he wrote a lot of books that were transferred to made for movie tv). Plus Tom Selleck does a superb job of being the deadpan hero. Kicks rear when and where it's needed. Definitely worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stone Cold, Death in Paradise, Night Passage September 12, 2007
Excellent intertainment. Tom Selleck is perfect for the role and the supporting actors are wonderful as well. My family has watched them over and over and still are not tired of them. Beats anything on T.V.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Cop Stories December 21, 2007
The Jessie Stone series is the best collection of crime stories I've seen. Tom Selleck has this character nailed down perfectly, and the writing is top notch, with great characters that you really care about, and plot twists that will knock you out!
The cinematography effectively captures the dark mood and the seaside location is perfect. The producers have a HUGE winner here, far and away the best cop shows available on DVD, right up there with the phenomenally successful BBC detective series "A Touch of Frost", which I consider to be the best drama collection of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Selleck is gritty - not you average Magnum PI November 29, 2007
Verified Purchase
Have been a long time Tom Selleck fan. Theses movies were made for TV but his character does not lack grit, nor do the movies. Selleck portays a darker, private character than his normal screen persona - fighting alcohol as well as the bad guys. He portrays a tender side, too - but with only a few of the characters who seem to need a friend (like troubled teens going through rough times). He just carries off the role extremely well. I'm glad I watched these without commercials as story breaks would have detracted from the continuity of the stories. Very well done. If you like detective stories with what seems like a strong dose of reality, these may be for you.
