Product Description

Third Watch: The Complete Second Season (DVD)

Amazon.com

Third Watch: The Complete Second Season continues the critically acclaimed television drama's unique approach to character-driven storylines within a fluid if somewhat familiar milieu. Almost anticipating the now-legendary heroism of New York City's police and rescue workers on September 11, 2001, these early episodes of Third Watch (the series began in 1999) concern the daily partnership and shared risks between New York cops, firefighters, and paramedics as they attempt to keep people alive in the midst of random chaos. While television shows about public servants are nothing new, what makes Third Watch both different and engrossing is the way creators John Wells (ER) and Edward Allen Bernero (Criminal Minds) hone in on one or two characters in each episode, relegating the rest of the cast to minor supporting roles. Thus, an individual who stands out in one episode for his or her efforts to do the job well--despite real-world pressures, lapses in judgment, and moral uncertainty--might appear only briefly, and perhaps less sympathetically, in another episode as seen from a different character's perspective.

That kind of revolving focus not only keeps Third Watch constantly fresh, it embraces master filmmaker Jean Renoir's famous observation (paraphrased here) that each of us has a reason for being who we are and doing what we do. Beyond its success at turning such an expansive spirit into appealing drama, Third Watch is also noteworthy for superb writing (much of it by Wells), harrowing set pieces, production values that stress an original, signature look, and a strong emphasis on relationships between on-the-job partners. The cast remains superb, particularly Jason Wiles as an immature, cynical, yet oddly effective young cop, Molly Price as his beleaguered but dedicated partner, and Skipp Sudduth as a veteran police officer whose leadership on the streets belies his rudderless off-duty existence. Among some truly memorable episodes in The Complete Second Season are "Four Days," in which one of the program's most stable characters, African-American paramedic "Doc" Parker (Michael Beach), slowly comes unglued by his growing perception of institutional racism, and season finale "…and Zeus Wept," a nightmarish thriller about a school shooting. --Tom Keogh

I'm a huge fan of Third Watch and learned a while back that the reason it's taken sooooooooooooooooo long for them to come out on DVD in the US is because of copyright issues on the AWESOME music that plays throughout the show. It's been released in Japan for years. Sheesh! I can hardly wait to get my copy!

What is it going to take to get the other 5 seasons of the best cop/fire/medic drama ever to air on tv on DVD? There is so much garbage available on DVD why not this series? Please get a move on. If you make them available we will buy them. I promise! =)

the best show on TV, let me have it on great, commercial free DVD quality rather than waking up early to watch it on A&E. The faster this comes out, the better, get all of the seasons out, please!

Format: DVD
"It's been more than a year since the first season of Third Watch was released on DVD, and fans have been upset that things have been quiet about a follow-up collection. Reporting about an online chat with Warner Home Video this past September, hosted by the Home Theater Forum, we passed along that "(t)he studio...revealed that the second season of Third Watch is...held up because the 'music costs...are extraordinarily high'". Nevertheless, fans can cheer up this morning, because Warner has apparently overcome the roadblocks that held this up (or else they substituted music), and are officially announcing that Third Watch - The Complete 2nd Season will come to DVD on July 7th.

The 6-disc set running 989 minutes will include 22 episodes: "The Lost," "Faith," "Four Days," "Jimmy's Mountain," "Kim's Hope Chest," "The Tys That Bind," "After Hours," "Know Thyself," "Run of the Mill," "History," "A Hero's Rest," "True Love," "Duty," "A Rock and a Hard Place," "Requiem for a Bantamweight," "Unfinished Business," "The Self-Importance of Being Carlos," "Honor," "Walking Wounded," "Man Enough," "Exposing Faith" and "...And Zeus Wept".

Video will be presented in full frame, and audio in English Stereo, with a Japanese Stereo option. Subtitles will be in English, Spanish, French and Japanese. Extras, if any, have not been revealed yet. Cost is listed as $59.98 SRP. Below we've got the studio description of the release, followed by the package art:

Sometimes it seems as if the world is crashing in on itself. It's the job of the first responders to hold it together.

I've been obsessed with Third Watch since it was on the air. I've waited years for it to come out on dvd and am ANXIOUS for the rest of the seasons to come out! So is my husband, whom I have turned into just as big a fan since the release of season 1.
For those who have never seen Third Watch, it's an incredible show that will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you totally wrapped into the characters. Never before (or since) has a show had more heart, been more real or just as consistently fantastic as Third Watch!! This is not a show that ever gets boring, from the 1st season to the last.
So PLEASE HURRY UP AND RELEASE THE OTHER SEASONS ON DVD!!!

The early years of this series were excellent. As a paramedic instructor I use the very first episode of Season One in my first night with each new group of students to get them fired up(couple of mva's, couple of structure fires, several DOA's, medic gets shot.) Medical techniques were not too bad-- far better than the godawful screwed up procedures they show on ER, for example)Here's hoping Season Two is on the way soon.

It is beyond my understanding why every show even the pathetic ones end up on dvd yet Third Watch has not been given the same honour of full season dvd releases! Hurry up and release the entire show! Acting superb, script fantastic. Characters on the show are engaging and each character reminds you of either someone you know or yourself! Best show ever to air on TV.

I purchased the complete series on DVD through what I now know was a pirated version. It is lousy quality. Not in chronological order. But, I guess better than nothing since Season 1 is all that has been released to date. (which I also purchased from Amazon) I, too, await further seasons to be released.

Third Watch - Warner Overcomes Obstacles, Announces 2nd Season: DVD...
I, like everyone else in this discussion, am really, really tired of waiting for season 3. I purchased the first 2 seasons immediately upon release date. Third Watch was the best show on television. I waited anxiously every week for Monday nights. I grew to love the cast and all their lives,... Read More
