Resurrection Blvd - The First Complete Season
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
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

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.
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!!!!
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.
