Editorial Reviews

The Sweeney is the Flying Squad. It is a name derived from Cockney rhyming slang (Sweeney Todd = Flying Squad), used by police and underworld alike to refer to this highly mobile force of top London crime-busters. The revolutionary series that introduced a new kind of police drama, The Sweeney depicts the violent clashes between the Flying Squad and the deadly world of organized crime.

DI Jack Regan (John Thaw - Inspector Morse) is the total professional, a 24-hours-a-day cop whose commitment to his job has already led to the break-up of his marriage. Regan's partner, DS George Carter (Dennis Waterman - Minder), is a sharp, South London Cockney. Together, Regan and Carter lead a unit of skilled detectives who infiltrate and bust up London's criminal underworld.

The epitome of 1970's style and attitudes, The Sweeney is action-packed with exciting car chases, fistfights, boozing, break-ins, gunfire, brash dialogue and a multitude of talented guest actors.

Format: DVD
The USA received a very strange release timeline of this show on DVD. First, the two big screen films saw a double disc set release: Sweeney/Sweeney 2, which is now out of print. A very odd way to introduce US fans to the show, considering movie versions of TV shows always play slightly off key from the original shows. Then, a different company released only series 1, with no other series releases. When it went out of print, I thought for sure the rest of the seasons would never see the light of day. BFS apparently has the license now and is releasing all 4 seasons, so US fans can finally see the entire series.

If you like the cockney rhyming slang of this 70's cop series, you may also like another British cult show which started in 1979 and ran through to the 90's, called Minder. It ran for 10 seasons, and so far, BFS is releasing seasons 1-3. Minder - Season One.

Classic cult mold breaking awesome British cop show from the 70's. Harsh, gritty, realistic and engaging. THOROUGHLY recommend it to anyone who likes 'cop shows'.

A classic British crime series. Very gritty and real with an excellent cast. Far better than most TV cop shows
