Editorial Reviews

Product Description

One of the most critically acclaimed television series of the 1980s, L.A. Law comes to DVD from Shout! Factory.


Co-created by Stephen Bochco (Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue) and Terry Louise Fisher (Cagney & Lacey), the Emmy Award-winning series takes us inside the law firm of McKenzie, Brackman, Chaney and Kuzak. There, a team of ambitious and competitive attorneys must face the conflicts between their personal desires, their obligations as lawyers, and their principles as human beings. A portrayal of the law and its litigators that was both realistic and irreverent, L.A. Law became a favorite of critics and audiences alike during its eight-year run on NBC from 1986 to 1994.


With an outstanding ensemble cast (featuring Harry Hamlin, Susan Dey, Jimmy Smits, and Corbin Bernsen), all 23 original episodes and stellar bonus features, you’ll judge L.A. Law to be as entertaining as ever.

Review

An excellent presentation from Shout! Factory, with several hours of brand-new interviews and a comprehensive making-of video for fans to deliberate over. Highly Recommended --DVDTalk

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!! On DVD at last! March 26, 2012
By Mikey
Format:DVD
Back in February 1987, ITV started to screen the first series of a new US legal drama LA LAW. Screening at 9pm every Thursday through until July, LA LAW quickly became a ratings hit. Previous courtroom drama on ITV had been provided by John Mortimer's Rumpole of the Bailey. LA LAW was something different.
This first series introduced us to the characters played by Harry Hamlin (Michael Kuzak), Jimmy Smits (Victor Sifuentes), Susan Dey (Grace Van Owen), Jill Eikenberry (Ann Kelsey), Richard Dysart (Leland McKenzie) and Corbin Bernsen (Arnie Becker) among others.
This UK release of LA LAW is a worldwide first. Fans in the US have been waiting for a long time for a release there without success.

1 Pilot
2 Those Lips, That Eye
3 The House of the Rising Flan
4 The Princess and the Wiener King

Lets hope that this long overdue release is the first to come of the whole series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patience has paid off April 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was a long, long wait for LA Law fans, who didn't know if or when the seminal series might ever be released, either on DVD or streaming.
Both NYPD Blue's later seasons and all of The Wonder Years were released on Amazon Prime's amazingly-price streaming service, last year, which was a terrific development. Now comes LA Law Season 1.

Revelation Films is a British -based company that has produced many lesser-known TV series and movies.

This Season One set is superb. The great theme song and all of the episode. Quality is great, considering how old the series is. And here's the best news for LA Law fans. I wrote to Revelation and they got back to me quickly, that they plan on releasing ALL of the LA Law seasons as the year goes forward. I hope people will look past the fact that this is an independent production house, without a big marketing budget and have confidence to purchase Season One.

This is not some cheap, Pacific Rim knock off. This is real, honest to goodness quality DVD set. With more to come.
For all of the LA Law fans out there, it is a must, immediate buy.

I have to say, I am a little surprised that it has been out for awhile and there don;'t seem to be any reviews of mention on the various TV/DVD websites.
As long as everyone has been waiting for LA Law, I can't believe they aren't all over this release.

5.0 out of 5 stars LA Law Finally Out on DVD April 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this classic TV program to come out on DVD and I was pleased to see it on Amazon. I was concerned about the DVDs playing in the US as they come from a publisher in England. I contacted the seller by email and received a prompt reply that the discs did not have a Region and would play on US machines.

My package arrived yesterday (one day early) and I opened it immediately. I did note that the back of the dvd slip cover shows PAL and the number two in a circle but I had been told that there was no region so I proceeded to remove the plastic wrapping. The six-disc set is contained in a plastic case with a colorful slip cover. The plastic disc case itself is a little difficult to open and close but the discs are securely held in compartments inside. The discs themselves are professionally made with screen-printed labels. The discs are single-sided.

The quality of the transfer to disc was very good in both video and sound. I noted a small amount of "screening" from time to time which could be from the original material, the transfer process or an artifact of the machine that I used to view the first episode. It could also be that this video artifact was only on the first episode. I did not find it overly distracting and will try viewing on another machine to see if it persists.

There are no extras on the discs which is disappointing but not surprising considering the age of the series. I base my buying decision on the main program and not the extras so I would have purchased this set regardless.

Overall I am extremely pleased with this purchase. I understand that the same publisher intends to release the remaining seasons of LA Law, perhaps even this year, and I intend to purchase them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars HERE AT LAST!!!! April 30, 2012
Format:DVD
I had read that LA LAW Season 1 was released in the UK but was not yet available in the U.S. I put it on my wishlist anyway with a note that if it were only available in the UK than not to bother. For my birhday, a friend gave me LA LAW. The box indicates it's from a UK Production company and there's a 2 in a circle that made me think it wouldn't work in my player. I immediately opened it, and put in the disc and, as I write this review LA LAW is on my TV. So cool. At the time, this was my favorite series. The next series I liked best was West Wing and both had Jimmy Smits and John Spencer. Can't wait for Season 2 to come out.

L.A. Law
I bought the first four seasons for like $50.00 a piece. They had no special features. They had no captions of subtitles. Now the first couple of seasons are available for like $20.00 a piece and they have all the bells and whistles. Does anyone know what's going on with this?
