    Format: DVD Verified Purchase
    The Equalizer, with its distinctive theme song, written by Stewart Copeland, founder and drummer of The Police, premiered in September of 1985. It was, almost certainly, one of the better shows to come out of the 1980s. The gritty, "street-smart" aura of the series, which ran for four seasons, in many ways encapsulated the "pulse" or the "feel" of life in New York City during this seminal decade. This said, those watching the show today will be impressed by how well it holds up and remains contemporary more than 20 years on.

    Edward Woodward's "made-for-the role" presence as retired Cold War operative Robert McCall, "The Equalizer," infused a razor-sharp energy into the series, complemented by a regular supporting cast that included Robert Lansing as "Control," Keith Szarabajka as Mickey Kostmayer, Mark Margolis as Jimmy, William Zabka as son Scott McCall, and Richard Jordan as Harley Gage.

    Format: DVD
    To Europeans and foreign film fans, Edward Woodward will always be remembered for playing the title role in "Breaker Morant." But to American television watchers, he will be remembered for playing Robert McCall, the wily and dangerous ex-covert operative in "The Equalizer."

    McCall is a former CIA-type (and at least one episode hints at him being a former mercenary) who has devoted all he has to his career, losing his marriage and distancing himself from his young son in the process. He decides to quit the espionage business and work as a vigilante, helping people in distress. His occasional accomplice is Mickey Kostmayer, another covert operator and former Navy SEAL.

    At one time or another, Woodward conveyed every emotion in the book playing McCall- menace, savagery, fear, doubt, loneliness, sadness, humor, joy, etc... The Elizabethan-trained actor had the talent to play such a complex role, and he did to the hilt, and the great supporting cast and numerous guest stars did nothing to hurt the appeal or attractiveness of the series.

    Having The Equalizer come out on DVD whets one's appetite for the planned feature film, but whoever plays Robert McCall will have large shoes to fill, and many great memories to overcome.

    As one of the writers and producers of The Equalizer, I'm very happy that what we did is finally coming out on DVD. The only sad note is that my friend, the legendary Jim McAdams, Executive Producer of the series, passed away in September of 07 and never saw it happen.

    Format: DVD
    I'm a big fan of Edward Woodward and "The Equalizer." I received the first season on DVD for Christmas in 2008. I couldn't wait to see more shows. So I searched the whole internet for the complete series and AMAZON referred me to
    BEWARE! DO NOT BUY the EQUALIZER from this source!
    First they don't deliver what they promise. I was promised superb packaging with episode title and info. Each disk has a great Equalizer label on it with a hand written number in a VHS box each DVD in a plastic CD sleeve. They said that all these were brand new. They had all been PIRATED off of A&E, USA, and PLUS cable channels complete with BAD reception, flipping pictures, and an occasional commerial, plus the announcements over the closing credits to stay tuned to A&E for the next great program. There are some episodes that are just perfect it must have been a good reception day in China. (That's were the DVD were sent from.) I'm going to keep this set because it took me so long to get them and I love this show. PLEASE BE WARNED about, if the price sounds too good it's probably PIRATED!

    Terrific news....The Equalizer is out on DVD!
    This series was just terrific and touched a nerve when it originally ran. What isn't to like? An older gentleman trying to get his karma correct by offering to help those in society who can't seem to get the police to listen or fall through the cracks one way or another. Who hasn't needed a big brother to help us at one time in our life? The pilot suffers from less than stellar acting and production but by the time the actual episodes came out the acting was terrific , the production values great and the stories wonderful.

    The DVD set review. First those unhappy with the packaging I'd like to say that in the past Universal has demonstrated their ability to make sexy packages and terrible product so the reverse is welcome. The fairly nondescript package hold 5 single sided dual layer DVDs...and this is great news to all of us who know of Universals penchant for double sided flipper discs that freeze and skip! The episodes look great as well. This series seems to have been filmed rather than video taped which many of that era sadly they look good. Did I mention that the show also featured some fun gunplay? Yeah...its all good
    an interview with Edward Woodward would have been terrific but I'm just glad to have a solid DVD set of the first year and looking for more!
    order without worries..

    OOOPS..I almost forgot. This show also featured arguably one of the all time best opening sequences highlighted by the brilliant theme music composed by Stewart Copeland (The Police), guaranteed to be pulse quickkening!

    "THE EQUALIZER/SEASON 1": Music May Differ?
    Hi Brent. I just bought "The Equalizer" on dvd and have noticed some music changes. I thought I was imagining it, but now that you have pointed out the "may differ" disclaimer, it all makes sense. It's not Mr. Copeland's music that has been altered, but rather, incidental... Read More
