....That's a total of 54 amazing episodes of "N.B.C."("Nothin' But Cannell") from the 1980's and early '90's! WORTH IT!!!
I only purchased this box set for the 8 episodes of the TV series Unsub. I recorded the episodes off TV when I was in my teens but I am so happy to finally have them on DVD...something I never thought would happen. Unsub was a crime show way ahead of its time and it's such a shame it never got off the ground...much more realistic than the CSI show's on TV these days.
I watched the episodes over and over on VHS...now I can do the same on DVD.
I had never heard or seen it before. This was the
original CSI except much better! The writing and
story telling is done superb. I guess this show
was ahead of it's time people just didn't like it.
I wish they had more than 8 episodes. The other
rare shows never released are not bad but not
as good. The commish, wiseguy, hunter and
tenspeed and brownshoe are all good shows
you can get on dvd. buy this for Unsub.
note: commish pilot uses the same exact
plot as UNSUB's 2 part show about 2 kids
missing axed and burned in a tub and
buried in the country! Cannell didn't
mind reusing old scripts. great episode.
But the set also contains the complete eps of three other Cannell series that died too soon: Missing Persons (18 eps), Broken Badges (7 eps) and Palace Guard (9 eps) - plus fan favorite eps from a number of other Cannell series - the two part pilot from Wiseguy (the first serious mob drama on TV); Hot Pursuit (a two-parter from Hunter - the closest TV ever came to getting a Dirty Harry-type cop right on TV); My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys from Cannell's Greatest American Hero (still the best superhero satire ever on TV), and more.
Frankly, this is a set that suggests a five-star rating isn't high enough. A++
