Note: A brief mention about pricing. While it's great to get all eight of the Jesse Stone films together in one convenient shipment, many have been around at bargain pricing for years. You may want to do a bit of shopping for a price configuration that makes sense to you if the ask here seems a little high. This collection does house all 8 previously released DVDs in a new box with a replica of Jesse's PPD ball cap as additional swag.

Included:
2005: Stone Cold
2006: Night Passage
2006: Death In Paradise
2007: Sea Change
2009: Thin Ice
2010: No Remorse
2011: Innocents lost
2012: Benefit Of The Doubt

Tom Selleck is Jesse Stone! I don't know who author Robert B. Parker might have envisioned inhabiting his iconic small town police chief, but Selleck has certainly owned and perfected the role over the course of these 8 made-for-TV movies. Stone must surely be one of the most laid back heroes to ever grace the small screen and Selleck has perfected the minimalism necessary to make this character stand out. In the film world of quick cut editing, these films defy expectation by unfolding at a very leisurely pace. For the most part, the mysteries place a distant second in importance to the characterizations and the humor developed in the scripts (for which Parker does share a writer's credit). For the Stone series to be successful, you've got to care about the principals. So while Selleck is as comfortable as an old slipper in his role, it is also important to single out the recurring cast that helps to sell these tidy mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful Detective Series July 12, 2013
If you like a detective series with a soul, this Jesse Stone series offers it up in the form of haunting and original music, inspired scenery and sets (love Stone's waterside home), quirky and realistic plots, insightful casting, gorgeous cinematography, and a sensitive but tough detective with Tom Selleck playing Jesse Stone.

Jesse has a few of his own mysteries to solve, along with the ones he confronts in his work. Is he ever going to not answer the phone when his ex-wife calls and just forget about her? Will he be able to stop drinking? Can he keep his community happy in the small northeastern town he polices and hang onto his job? Will he ever find a woman who is sympatico?

In between battling his own demons, therapy sessions with his shrink (William Devane), and cryptic conversations with just about everybody including his dog, Jesse manages to solve quite a few crimes with his non-police manual methods.

In analyzing why this series is compelling, one reason is that it just feels real. Selleck inhabits the role of Jesse Stone with ease. You feel like he's playing some aspect of himself. The secondary characters are strong. You don't feel like you are watching a show. You feel like it's real life. And you care about the characters. Even the crooks have a sort of likability in some instances.

This is the kind of series you could watch every year. Although another show hasn't been purchased by CBS, Selleck said in an interview that he thinks someone will want to produce another episode. We hope Selleck is right. In the meantime, you can just re-watch the episodes in this complete set until they do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete series? July 2, 2013
By z best
I LOVE the Jesse Stone movies! They are very well done and Tom Selleck sells the character brilliantly! However, I question just how complete the series could be unless there is a new movie this year that I haven't heard about. The last movie I saw left some things unfinished that need to be taken care of if there are no more Jesse Stone movies being made.

I LOVE this series, own them all... would give this 5 stars for content, but value? ALL of these DVDs can be found for $5 each (that is $40 total folks) online or at discount stores...they have been available for some time and their value has dropped as DVDs often do. What we have here is the latest idea to package them all together and bundle them with a hat and list price it at $100.

Long time fans of Tom Selleck should enjoy his turn as a middle aged man with a complicated past. This series is an adult treat. Not a ton of action but a very enjoyable character study and this series is populated with terrific co stars like William Devane,Saul Rubinek, Stephen McHattie,Kathy Baker and William Sadler to name but a few.

My review isn't the series...that is 5 stars, Own em all, and I've watched them all at least twice. I'm reviewing the actual product that goes on sale next week. I saw it tonight at my local Barnes and Noble and was hoping it was something new... like maybe on Blu Ray or featuring some bonus disc with interviews and behind the scenes or ANYTHING new to justify a consideration of purchase ..alas no it's just a hat.

Unless you want a clumsy box or desperately want a PPD hat.... there are almost unlimited ways to purchase this excellent series that are 50% less than this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesse Stone series is really great; dark but intriguing.
Although a dripping rain of gloom hangs over the whole series, the acting is tremendous and the plots are fascinating. I wish that they had made more of this series. Read more
