Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Jacque Gray, Tina Arning, Shannon Maureen Brown. Showtime's drama series about three generations of an East Los Angeles family's victories both inside and outside the boxing ring has won critical and popular acclaim. Includes all 20 episodes of the Santiagos' trials and tribulations. 5 DVDs. 2000-01/color/16 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Showtime's Resurrection Blvd. is an engrossing series about the fortunes and fate of the Santiago family, who take pride in their deep, East L.A. roots and have, for generations, pinned their hopes for success on developing a boxing champion from among their male kin. The 20 first-season episodes included here focus on patriarch Roberto Santiago (Tony Plana), confident of eldest son Carlos's chances of winning a middleweight crown until the latter (Michael DeLorenzo) is seriously wounded by an angry ex-boyfriend of his sister Victoria (Marisol Nichols). In Carlos's place steps youngest brother Alex (Nicholas Gonzalez), a bookish, affable student who takes to boxing rigorously and alienates Roberto by signing with a crooked promoter (Ray Wise).

Around the edges of the central story, other Santiagos navigate love lives, ethics, and ambitions as grand as the American Dream. Middle brother Miguel (Maricio Mendoza) disappears for a while, uncertain of his place in the family. Sister Yolanda (Ruth Livier), a dedicated paralegal with her eye on law school, discovers a serious act of negligence at her firm and isn't sure what to do. Aunt Bibi (Elizabeth Pena), lively and strong, finds her hopes crashing when she can't buy the building housing her beauty shop. Watching all this and understanding more than he lets on is Uncle Ruben (Daniel Zacapa), an ex-fighter made mute by brain damage.

The pacing of events is fairly glacial, and individual episodes could certainly be tighter. But the leisurely programs allow for lots of pleasant frills, including a cameo by Cheech Marin and a nice, recurring role for Paul Rodriguez as a business manager. Certainly the strongest element of Resurrection Blvd. is the cast, which clearly thrives on 20 hours of breathing room and really shines in the season finale's 12-round showdown. --Tom Keogh

This outstanding series gives PBS's "American Family" a run for its money as the finest series about a typical, all-American family. Superbly acted across the board, from proud, tough-love Patriarch Roberto (the excellent Tony Plana), struggling sister-in-law Bibi (Elizabeth Pena - why isn't this woman a star?) and her loving son Tommy (the underrated Douglas Spain) to always-reliable veterans Rita Moreno and Glynn Turman... this series strikes gold on all counts, from the fine acting and directing to the smart scripts and warm designs. Let's hope Paramount resurrects seasons two and three on DVD in the not-too-distant-future. It's impossible not to fall in love with these characters. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding December 5, 2005
I would definately have to say this is my favorite show EVER, not only because they have such great actors and wonderful plots, but becuase of the way these characters relate and how they overcome difficulties in their lives, i come from a mexican american family and can really relate to this T.V show because obviouslly, this family is very close and so is mine. Im very upset that they cancelled this show, they should really reconsider making a whole new season and just advertise it alot very sure that the public would love it and not get enough of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Entertaining April 28, 2005
I was running out of movies to rent so I just happened to check out this series. I was totally impressed! I couldn't get enough. I have been a fan of boxing for quite some time and this show kept me wanting to see the next episode. When is season 2 coming out? The actors are absolutely georgeous too!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series - Badly planned DVD August 27, 2004
Verified Purchase
I recently got this DVD and I love the series but feel that they could have done a much better job in releasing the DVD.

It seems that none of the episodes have chaptering. That's not so great when an episode is just under 60 minutes. If you end up getting interrupted (as I always seem to do) you then have to start looking from the beginning of the episode for where you left off.

There are no subtitles. This series is mostly in English but includes a lot of Spanish dialogue. Subtitles here in one or the other or both of those languages would be great. I speak English (y un pequeño espanol) but I would definately benefit from subtitles so that I can pick up the dialogue that goes by too quickly for me.

I've got no complaints with the quality of the video transfer or the sound both are crisp and well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series and I'm not Mexican/Latino!!!! October 25, 2004
Verified Purchase
This was a great show. Since I have the blockbuster movie ticket, I can rent as many movies as I like. Recently I've been renting TV shows. At first I didnt even look at renting this. I'll be truthful. I didnt believe I would like a film made up of all latinos. I didnt think I could relate to it. I was definitely wrong. I enjoyed everything about it. The acting and storyline was awesome. It wasnt just about boxing. It was about family struggles. I literally watched every episode back to back. I liked how it showed how mexicans valued their family. That's one thing I wish the white culture could do better. I've read most of the reviews and they are mostly written by mexicans. I wanted to write one so all other cultures would know this is a great show regardless of what race you are. I cant believe they cancelled this show. Maybe if they advertised the show differently, other races would have given it a chance. For example, the titles of each show was written in spanish. I couldnt even tell you what they said. Well its sad that it was cancelled though. I wanted to see the sons and the father get together again and win the world title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding May 3, 2004
This series is the most OUTSTANDING and INSPIRATIONAL series I have ever seen. I have followed this series from it's beginning to it's last season, and anxiously awaited a new season. I recommend this series for all generations, Abuelitos, Tias/Tios, Primos/Primas, Hijos/Hijas, Nietos y Amigos (Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, Cousins, Sons/Daughters, Grandchildren and Friends )as it truly represents and depics the importance of family loyalty, support and love of life we all share. Although the focus is directed toward Latinos, anyone who has a dream or who has set goals for themselves will be able to relate to this family.
I can't wait for the remaining seasons to become available so I can buy them too. I plan to pass them on from generation to generation.
I would love to see it come back!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Show...But Just one Question... July 10, 2005
I love Resurrection Blvd and I personaly think it may have been one of the best shows on television, which of course explains why it was cancelled. So, I could live with the cancellation if only they'd release the complete series on DVD. So far they've done Season 1 and only Season 1 leaving a lot of people hanging. And its going on 3 years now. My fear of course is that they've completely forgotten about the show and some of us will never see the end. If you want it released, please consider signing this petition so we can get the ball rolling and finally get Seasons 2 & 3 out there. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where are the remaining episodes of this series?? July 21, 2010
From time to time, I'll read reviews of items that I own myself. With Resurrection Blvd. I notice that no one has put forth a review for a few years now. Depending on your point of view, if you are not a boxing fan, this series comes across as a soap opera revolving around boxing. If you are a boxing fan, it is not so much a soap opera as a behind the scenes look at a sport we love and all of the things going on while dedicating yourself to what is without doubt, the most physically demanding of all sports.

I won't add or dismiss anything already said here in prior reviews as it parallels my own thoughts. But I ask this: Why haven't the other two remaining seasons been released on DVD?

The saga of the Santiago family continues for several more episodes and the quality of the series doesn't miss a beat.

I'm not going to reveal the eventual outcome of the various characters here but it would be nice if SHOWTIME would release the remaining episodes of the series so that those of us who love this series, can enjoy it.

The series is in syndication on SITV but is edited for content and language and so not worth watching except for those who don't know any better.

This is a 5 DVD set. It's a real steal for less than $10. Not only does this series provide a "Boxing 101" but also provides family values, real life situations which are not always pleasant but are honest and realistic enough to be able to relate to.
