This was the second and last CBS "Crimetime After Prime Time" season before it moved to USA network.
This season nailed the formula "Silk Stalkings" was to use for years to come. The golfing metaphors for sex are a thing of the past, and Rita's brain aneurism is never mentioned again. Mitzi Kapture does a voice-over in most episodes, but it's not the constant presence it was in Season One. While male guest roles continue to have diversity of character, women in guest roles are pretty much either Saints or Sinners, and the Sinners only have two ways to go: Sluts and Sociopaths. Thankfully, the fetish for big 1980's hairdos and hosiery ("silk stockings" -- get it?) has largely disappeared. And of course we still see too many San Diego hillsides to convincingly stand in for the flat land around Palm Beach.
As this was a late-night budget show, we still get grainy video. The intro is unchanged; Mitzi Kapture still appears first in the credits with the big 1980's hair. (Later Rob and Mitzi alternated first and second billing.) Closed captions are new this season. In a budget-constrained show that's heavy on sex it's not surprising to see the occasional lapse in censorship; I counted two accidental nipple exposures (down from three in Season One).Read more ›
I noticed one episode on disc four seems to be missing 10 minutes. It's called "Dead Weight". It runs only 37 minutes versus all the others at 47 minutes, and has no resolution to the crime at all. Don't know if all the sets have this error, but contact Anchor Bay via their website if you notice it. Hopefully they will send replacement discs.
Apart from that the picture is clear and the episodes are uncut. Not much in the way of extras, but it seems like a lot fun just to see these cops back on the beat in San Diego... oops! I mean in Florida (it was shot in California and sometimes you can tell).
The DVD is fine -- it has the same generic extras as other Cannell Season 2 sets, like Greatest american hero -- and one episode is offered in French, and one in Spanish. But the shows are uncut and look good, so I'm not complainin'.
