    Product Description

    Take a spin on the wheel of TV's most electrifying series ever, Las Vegas. The slots are hot and the girls are even hotter in this brand-new uncut DVD collection of the entire first season, starring some of today's biggest guest stars. Follow the fast-paced exploits and action-packed escapades at the Montecito Hotel and Casino with an elite Las Vegas surveillance team, led by commanding Big Ed Deline (James Caan) and his slick, good-looking righthand man, Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel). Along with the sexiest support team to hit the Strip, they're out to catch card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and the schemes of rival casinos. It's Sin City like you've never seen it before in the series Variety declares is "Bottom line: Jackpot."

    Amazon.com

    Slick, stylish, and fast-paced, Las Vegas is a high-tech hybrid of 1970s' Vega$ and 1980s' Hotel. Created by Gary Scott Thompson (The Fast and the Furious), season 1 includes all 23 episodes of the NBC dramedy's. Set in the fictional Montecito Resort and Casino, the show revolves around surveillance expert and ex-Marine Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton). McCoy reports to the president of operations and ex-CIA operative "Big" Ed Deline (the inimitable James Caan). If Duhamel is the show's charisma, Caan is the gravitas. The attractive cast is rounded out by Vanessa Marcil as casino host Sam Marquez, Nikki Cox as event coordinator Mary Connell, James Lesure as valet Mike Cannon, Marsha Thomason as pit boss Nessa Holt, Cheryl Ladd as Deline's wife Jillian, and model Molly Sims as Deline's daughter Delinda.

    From the start, Las Vegas has attracted a diverse array of guest stars, from musicians, like Little Richard ("New Orleans"), to movie stars, like Sean "Samwise" Astin ("You Can't Take It With You"). Even "Mr. Las Vegas" himself, Wayne Newton, puts in an appearance ("Pros and Cons"). Other notable guests include Elliot Gould ("Jokers and Fools"), Jean-Claude Van Damme ("Die Fast, Die Furious"), and Alec Baldwin ("Hellraisers and Heartbreakers"), hot off his Oscar-nominated turn in The Cooler.

    First used in heist hit Ocean's 11, Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" (JXL remix) is the Las Vegas theme song. On the DVD set, however, it's replaced by "Let It Ride" on all episodes except the pilot. Also, the subtitle "Uncut and Uncensored" indicates footage too hot for network TV, but the additions are minor. While a few seconds have been added to the more risqué sex/poolside scenes, any other changes from the original broadcast are difficult to detect. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Guilty Pleasure May 24, 2005
    By Andrew
    Format:DVD
    Last year, when this show came on, I dismissed as yet another trendy crime show. I chose not to watch it, but my dad really got into it. Every now and then, I'd see bits and pieces of the show, and for the most part, I liked what I saw, whether it was actual plot, beautiful women, or great panoramic views of Las Vegas. Eventually, I started watching the show, and here is my final conclusion: my first assumption was not far off, but maybe that's not such a bad thing.

    The series centers around the security team of the fictional Monticeto Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The team is headed by Ed Deline (James Caan), an ex-CIA operative who apparently can make grown men cry using nothing but a fork. Ed's right-hand man is Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel), a former Marine. And he isn't an actual part of the security team, valet Mike Cannon (James Lesure) often lends a helping hand to investigations due to his engineering degree (even though he could be doing other things, he prefers to be a valet). The rest of the main cast includes the Entertainment Director (and possibly ex-escort) Mary Connell (Nikki Cox), Casino Host Samantha Jane Marquez (Vanessa Marcil), pit boss Nessa Holt (Marsha Thompson), and Ed's sexually active daughter Delinda (Molly Sims), who eventually becomes the host of the Monticeto's main restaurant, Mystique. Each character brings something different to the casino. Sam is a cold and calculating woman who can get almost anything done for a client. Nessa is one of Vegas' best and most intelligent pit bosses. Mary has a good eye for talent and is the softie of the group. And Delinda's "knowledge" of what is hip transformed Mystique into one of Vegas' most popular restaurants.

    The stories are pretty episodic.

    4.0 out of 5 stars What happens in Vegas sometimes can't be cleared... February 20, 2005
    Format:DVD
    NBC's Monday night glitzfest comes to DVD with almost everything intact. As far as the "uncensored" part is concerned, I've only found two scenes that were probably cut for TV. The couple in the elevator in the pilot episode, and the wet-t-shirt contest in "New Orleans" (networks hate nipples, ya' know). The extras are okay, although I saw the "Rumble in the Montecito" AFL promo when NBC ran it during halftime of the Gator Bowl. The Las Vegas history lesson looks too much like things I've seen on other DVDs, like the original Ocean's Eleven, "The Rat Pack's Las Vegas", etc. I like GST's description of "The Night The Lights Went Out in Vegas" as a "bottle show"...just the main cast, no unusual exteriors, the main sets (that aren't fully lit) and a few extras who don't have lines (another cost saver). By the way, for the trivia buffs, the blonde that winks at Danny is Christa Sauls, the computer specialist from "Acapulco H.E.A.T".
    But, since the big gripe everyone has is about "A Little Less Conversation" (for the record, this IS the version that was going to be used in Elvis' 68 special, but not the JXL remixed version), hopefully I can clear something up. The average cost to clear a song for TV is $2,500 per minute, per use. For home video, it's $1,000. So, for this package, at the low end, it would have cost $23,000 to have this in every episode in the package. But that is a low figure, as I am sure that an Elvis song goes for much more. So we get it for the pilot, and that's it. All the other shows get, at least according to the series' fan club site, the music used on the internationally syndicated version of the show.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Two Reasons Not To Buy This From A Fan September 24, 2008
    Format:DVD
    I am a fan of this show and I think the best seasons are 2 and 3. This show is truly a guilty pleasure. However, I have two very good reasons why you should not buy this DVD set or any other Las Vegas season for that matter. I just hope amazon publishes this review.

    Reason 1: You can watch them free on TNT everyday (weekdays at noon). If you have a DVR, you can record them all in high definition on TNT. This show is syndicated and TNT loops the show over and over. Again, TNT shows every episode from season one to the very last episode of the last season (which by the way is the worst series finale in television history). This leads me to my second reason for not buying any of these DVD sets.....

    Reason 2: It has no ending or closure. NBC, showing little care for it's fans and the network's audience, pulled this show for financial reasons. When they pulled this show, they decided not to film or air the final episodes which would have closed out the series properly. Instead you are left with a cliffhanger that never gets completed. Las Vegas fans are outraged. You can watch every season and every single episode and be wondering what happens next, only to be left with one of the worst ending ever. This show was pulled from NBC's lineup due to bad ratings. The fact that it aired on Friday nights was the very reason for the poor ratings and not the quality of the series by any means. Don't you want your DVD sets to have an ending? Since NBC will not provide fans with an ending due to financials and ratings, why should you give them your $30? They don't deserve it.

    Watch them for free on TNT. If you want to start from the beginning of the series, wait until they air the episode title "Pilot" and watch or record the episodes everyday at noon on TNT.

    Las Vegas Season One - CC or subtitles???
    I'm assuming you already figured it out since this post is multiple months old, but for anyone else who looks, Season one has subtitles or rather, CC for the hearing impaired.
