Editorial Reviews

Before "The Shield" Michael Chiklis was "The Commish"!

The Complete 5 Season Series Finally Available on DVD!

The series that first introduced TV audiences to Michael Chiklis is finally available in its entirety on DVD. Fans of The Commish have been yearning for the release of seasons 3-5 and that day has finally come with this release which includes all 94 episodes on 17 DVDs!

Emmy Winner Michael Chiklis stars as Tony Scali, a no-nonsense police commissioner revered by his officers and community for this unorthodox style and compassionate nature. As a former Brooklyn cop, Tony uses tough and, at times, controversial methods to bring perpetrators to justice in his small town, where solutions to difficult situations often require considerable creativity. From parenthood to politics, from sex crimes to murder cases, one man takes it day-to-day with offbeat humor and street-smart skill.

Happy they finally released this series in full! Dvds come in sleeves, very cheap but no biggie. ***I paid [...] for the complete series*** Amazon has been switching the price from $68 to [...]. So wait it out if it's $68. I'm on season 3 right now, I miss these old plots and not all this new crap on csi with the same old story. The Commish is my favorite old time drama tv series. If you are thinking of buying yet never watched an episode, you will not be disappointed. RUN TIME is 73 hrs....enjoy!

The fact that I finally have the ability to watch seasons 3 and 4 and the movies for The Commish almost makes up for the cruddy packaging...almost. Really Mill Creek? REALLY? I mean, I'm grateful they agreed to put out the series. I'm grateful its such an affordable cost, all things considered. I'm grateful I get to see episodes I'd thought lost to me forever. Heck, I'm even grateful there aren't a billion annoying extras I never watch anyway. But the little paper sleeves all stacked together in a pile so you have to sort through them to find the right episode is EXTREMELY annoying. Mill Creek, just FYI...I'd gladly have paid a bit extra for a better package. But the alternative is no Commish at all...so I guess I'll live with it. FYI to all: I hear Mill Creek is going to package ALL their sets like this so...just a heads up...

I say "I love 'The Commish'" because I love the show. Sometimes the video would break up, but for the most part, it was good. Packaging was sad and cheap. However, "The Commish" is one of the best shows ever because:

Michael Chiklis is a woman's dream (as the commish)
it is a clean (no blasphemy and filthy language, sex scenes, etc.) show
there is no unnecessary gore and violence
great storylines
great humor
I love how he uses his compassion, intuition, and wit to solve crimes
he is a wonderful husband and father
the rest of the cast are very likeable (although the ineptitude of the handyman galls me)

I guess I could go on, because it is one of my all-time favorite shows, but you get the point. If you buy "The Commish", you won't be disappointed!!!

I have been waiting a long time for the complete series. I am happy it is finally here.
All 17 discs are in paper envelopes!!!! Bad! Very bad!!!!
I will be buying a cd wallet to store my DVDs in-
The picture isn't all that great on some of the episodes-
I wish they had spent a little more $ to make this a better product-
But I got my Commish, so I will take what I can get-
Did I mention I HATE the paper envelopes?????

*I have taken a picture of this DVD series and added it to the Amazon product images on this page*

I watched this show as a kid, and found seasons 1 and 2 on Netfilx to watch. My husband and I watched them and wished so much we could see the rest of the series. Now we finally can! We started over from the beginning and are almost done with season 2, and about to start season 3.

The only real mentionable flaw I have found so far is on disk one of season one. If you select "play all" at the menu instead of starting each episode manually, it actually starts you at the last episode of that disk instead of the first one. So I would suggest manually selecting each episode to watch, or you might find one out of order. They may even fix this flaw in the future, so it may not happen to everyone. I ordered this series the day it was released, so it may have been a mistake in the first batch that was produced.

The price on this items fluctuates a LOT right now. As many other reviewers have said, watch to see if you can pick it up on sale.

I am really glad to finally get all the seasons of The Commish, was beginning to think no more were going to be released. I had already bought Seasons 1 and 2, but I don't even care that I had to buy them all over again in this set. I do wish the other seasons had come out separately but I guess one can't have everything.

I have watched 2 disks so far, and the quality varies. Some shows look fairly sharp, and others look more like VHS instead of DVDs. So if you are looking for HD-quality, this set is not for you. If you just want to enjoy The Commish again, then get this set.

I'm so happy that this fabulous early 90's TV series has finally been released as a complete boxed set. It's a detective drama with a definite twist. It's set in a small town, but definitely avoids the cuteness that might have befallen a show with Michael Chiklis' type of character. The crimes are solved every week with cleverness rather than violence, and we've never been disappointed with any episode.

Love it!

I watched the first few episodes and it was fine. After the first few episodes the discs stopped playing so I have no idea how good it was.I ended up having to return the whole set because so many episodes wouldn't play. I was so disappointed because I was looking forward to watching them. I hope to find this set elsewhere. The box they arrived in should have been a clue when it was broken and then the way the discs were packaged.

Uncut Episodes?
I'd like to know that as well. Someone already said that scenes were missing in an episode. A also recall earlier discussions about the first two sets not being "complete". Anyone??
