Editorial Reviews

It would take more than a nuclear explosion to stop everyone's favorite violence-loving lawman! David Rasche returned-along with co-stars Anne-Marie Martin and Harrison Page-in the surprising second season of the series that Entertainment Weekly calls "absolutely hilarious" These are the infamous final episodes featuring such guest stars as Richard Moll, Ray Walston, Edy Williams, Bud Cort, Bernie Kopell, Adam Ant, Davy Jones and more, in the "sitcom for people who hate sitcoms" that remains one of the most dangerously funny shows in TV history.

Other companies that release TV shows on DVD need to take a look at these Sledge Hammer season sets to see how it should be done. Plenty of extras (including outstanding commentary tracks, and interviews with the actors and creator) and most importanly UNCUT EPISODES. If you liked the show, there is no reason not to pick this up. If you didn't like it, give it another shot, you may like it now. I had not seen many of the season 2 episodes and was worried that they might not be as good as the first season. Fortunately I was wrong. I think season 2 may even top season 1. I would like to thank Alan Spencer and everyone else that made the Sledge DVD releases happen.

I have to admit, I own many TV on DVD releases, easily over 50 and I have to say that Anchor Bay's release of Sledge Hammer Season Two is one of the best releases that has ever come across my desk. The packaging is awesome, as each disc has a color cover and is enclosed in a plastic shell. If you own the Three's Company Season Two Set, the interior is similar. The color and detail inside of the set jumps out at owner of the set. The attention to detail is appreciated. The inside of the first flap lists the episodes included on each disc. The interior back flap includes text which reads, "Sledge Hammer's Top Ten Pickup Lines." Another added bonus, the DVD set includes a folder that is titled "Confidential Report-Case Closed." This mini file folder includes a booklet with information about the show.

On to the show, Sledge Hammer aired on ABC for two seasons on ABC in the mid 80's, 1986 to 1987 to be exact. The show was hilarious and it is truly remarkable that such a cult classic that only ran for two seasons made it to DVD. Fans truly should be grateful to the shows creator Alan Spencer and Anchor Bay for bringing this show to DVD. The show was a spoof of cop shows, but the writing was so good, that the laughs weren't always laugh out loud laughs, but if you paid attention and got the joke, you were bound to chuckle. The lead character, Sledge Hammer, yes that was his name on the show was portrayed by actor David Rasche. He was really fun on the show during it's run and fans of him and the show were suprised that he didn't flip a huge film career after the show ended it's run. Although he didn't become a big time star, he has continued to work in Hollywood quite steadily over the years. His most notable recent role was in the 2003 Ashton Kutcher hit Just Married.

Season Two of Sledge Hammer! lives up to the high quality of the first season. Part satire, part drama and all quality, there are plenty of laughs to be found in these episodes. The ingenious solution to season one's cliffhanger ending is merely the first salvo in a season-long comedy fest. My personal favorite is "Last of the Red Hot Vampires," which features a nice tribute to Bela Lugosi. The hysterical audio commentaries from creator Alan Spencer also continue in this set and they alone are funnier than anything on the networks these days. The humor and quality of Sledge are even more relevant in today's society and clearly leave us all hoping for a Sledge Hammer! movie.

The second season of this show picks up where the first left off.... or doesn't, exactly. But that is all part of the joke as more genres of film and TV get sent up in a second season of a show that survived tough competition, a nuclear blast, and even an assault by heavily armed Amish farmers.

In our second season, there are plenty of sendups both of 1980s era stuff and other classic material. Hitchcock gets it in "Vertical," and there is a loving tribute to Bela Lugosi in the Halloween episode "Last of the Red Hot Vampires." Fans of the first season will like the chance to see Harrison Page take charge in "They Call Me Mr. Trunk" and everything from 1940s Bogart detective movies to Paul "Crocodile Dundee" Hogan to Paul Verhoeven's ultraviolent "RoboCop" right on to the 1980s pop culture (and dark future) touchstone "Max Headroom" get sent up in this second season. Also, "Dressed to Call" spoofs the phone call horror film genre seen most recently with "Scream."

On a more serious note, the show continued the powerful dramatic arc which made it unique among other comedies of the time, most nobatly in the final episode of the season, and, as it turned out, the series.

The 1940s detective episode is a personal favorite of mine, and lovers of good spoof comedy and film in general will find interesting takes on the material. "Hammer" fans who liked the first set should get a kick out of these as well.

Fnally, I will love the chance to complete the set. There are very few shows I have been able to watch once, then remember so much for years, as this one - and most of those shows are dramas. It wil be fun to see these again. Another nice touch is that some comedy and film buffs who didn't catch the show's first run will be able to catch some of these.

I have this set (early!) and can confirm that it not only lives up to the first season but exceeds it, both for the gleeful insanity of its spoofs, and for the character development unusual in a comedy show (apparently the studio wanted more emphasis on the relationships, and the writers and actors obliged). The episodes look as good as they have any right to, having been shot on 16mm as an economy measure but now digitally enhanced. (Slightly more successfully than the 'colorization' process parodied in one episode here!) There are more laughs in the three commentaries by creator Alan Spencer - helped out on one by the wonderfully talented lead actress Anne-Marie Martin - than in a whole season of most top-rated comedy shows. The other extras are well worth having, and along with the smart booklet show how much care has gone into crafting this set.

If you remember it from the 80's, buy it. If you remember the 80's, buy it. If you can remember anything, remember to buy this. Even yogurt-eatin' liberals like the President will love it.
