Editorial Reviews

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.

Special Features

None.

Well, first of all it would have been nice to see season 3 released instead of a rehash of already commercially available season 1 & 2 but I digress.

The GOOD news:
1. This set is far cheaper if price was your reason for skipping the first go round release of season 1 and 2 a few years ago.

2. Target is selling season 1 & 2 for $14.99 in a limited edition 2 for pack available now. Just got mine today.So my advice would be to skip Amazon's offering on this item (I canceled my pre-order)and save money in the long run by getting the 2 for deal.

Now for the BAD news:

This is the no frills edition. (What can you really expect for $11?)

1. The 4 discs contained come in paper sleeves!I've seen some cost cutting schemes in my time when manufacturers skimp on dvd releases but this takes the cake. I've seen bootleg dvds that are packaged more professionally than this.

2. The episodes are the butchered ones from the prior releases. You would have thought that if they were going to redo these 2 seasons over, they would have atleast issued them uncut this time.

So only buy this if:

A. You didn't buy the original release a few years ago because of cost

B. You want your set to match seasons 3 & 4 if they ever come out

C. Your old sets are all scratched and beat up in the 4/5 years you've been waiting for season 3 to be released.

I had never watched this series when it was on TV but enjoyed all the first season episodes. I noted that the character of "The Commish" was based on a real-life Rye, New York Police Commissioner. Boy, I'd like to meet that guy. Enjoy!

I was buying DVDs on amazon and if you spent $149, shipping would be free. My order originally came to $146, so I was looking for a cheap DVD to get the free shipping. I saw they were selling Commish season 1 for $3.99 and I figured if I only enjoyed 1 episode, I would get my money's worth. Guess what? I enjoyed every episode and made me go out and season 2. BTW, season 2 is every bit as good season 1. Michael Chiklis is the franchise player of the series. Everything starts and stops with him, he is Da Man.

The other reviews say that this isn't like The Shield and they're right. This show is OLD. Filmed in 91, it looks like eighties. Michael Chiklis is great as Scalli. A little strange with the east coast accent. If not for him it would have been unwatchable for me. Kinda cheesy compared to today's dramas, without much violence, language, or T and A. Older folks wanting to reminisce won't be dissapointed. For younger people who want lots of action and realism, this probably isn't your cup of tea.

As commented to a previous post no this isn't "The Shield". In fact it could be seen as the polar opposite of The Shield. It was a good show for it's time, and provided good clean family entertainment which is all it ever claimed to do. It wasn't supposed to be "edgy" or anything like that. Glad to see it out on DVD and a reasonable price...but PAPER SLEEVES? Come on!

I watched this show when it was on the air and loved it! I was happy to finally get it on DVD. It's not a perfect DVD but I can watch the show and that is all that i wanted. I don't need fancy extras or blu ray to make me happy with this!

I like this show.
It isn't perfect, but fairly family friendly.
The DVD picture and sound seem good, no problems so far.
