Editorial Reviews

This popular series, handsome, fun loving, private eye, Dan Tanna, drives around Las Vegas in his vintage Thunderbird solving private cases but is also on retainer to a wealthy casino owner to keep crime out of his hotels. He is helped by his smart and sexy assistant, a sexy and not too smart chorus girl who takes messages for him, and his enthusiastic, yet inept, legman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable But Short-Lived Urich/Spelling TV Show August 5, 2009
"Vega$-The First Season, Volume 1," is the first release of the popular, but brief series starring Robert Urich as Las Vegas private eye Dan Tanna.

As was typical with other Aaron Spelling action television shows of this era (and Urich himself starred as James Street in Spelling's even shorter-lived series SWAT), Vega$ featured lots of fistfights, gunfights, car chases, and plots that not only strained credulity, but often broke it. But faithful viewers didn't care about how realistic the show was, but how much fun and pure escapism it was. Urich as Tanna was a former Special Forces soldier now making his career as a rough and tumble private eye, who relied on help from girl Friday Bea (Phyllis Davis), a former showgirl, his buddy Binzer (Bart Braverman), his police contact, Lt. Dave Nelson (Greg Morris) and Vegas hotel owner Phillip Roth (Tony Curtis). A unique feature of Tanna's apartment behind Roth's hotel was the fact that he could drive his cool sports car into his living room.

It is great to have the late Urich's work on DVD, and Vega$ will be enjoyed today by many who spent evenings enjoying the show in their youth.

I absolutely LOVED THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!! As a kid I watched it live and loved it so much - yes, Charlie's Angels, Starsky and Hutch, Love Boat and Fantasy Island TOO but this one I never thought would be released on dvd!! When I first started dating, I would come home and watch late night tv with my mom (10pm curfew...the old days) and this was one of my favorite childhood shows that was repeating at the time at 11pm, so there are great memories from the first airing when I was little and the repeats as a teenager(12am was Trapper John MD and 1 am was Love Boat-after dates were better than the dates!). I am about halfway through my dreadful vhs tapes of this show (transferring to dvd)- I only have about half the episodes, and they were repeats on TNT's Lunchbox TV in the mid-90's and they are in such poor condition, I'm just thrilled to get some in quality condition and will inevitably get my hopes up that I'll get them all eventually.

The only reason it might be tied for the best release this year is because it's been a good year for us fans of 70's shows with the constant release of more Love Boat episodes, finally the 4th season of Charlie's Angels, another season of Taxi on it's way and the long awaited but finally given up on (prior to the miraculous announcement)of the second season of Knots Landing (not a 70's show but still qualifies as a childhood favorite). It took so long for some of these, it leaves me in a position of perpetual hope that it will never be too late for a network to get their head out of their collective...or for someone else like SHOUT to buy the rights to some of the greatest shows ever made - dated as they may be.

HOWEVER.............I agree with everyone about this partial season garbage.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 Stars For Release, 10 Stars For Series! August 15, 2009
Alright people, I wanted to post this here to let everyone know about this series that dont know it. First off, they are setting this up to fail by only releasing a half of season (ridiculous!!) and pricing it high at full boxed set price.

Remember what they did with releasing "Kojak" and "Police Woman"?? They set it up to fail, and it did fail and it gave em their excuse to not release any more and continue releasing more of today's brainless excuse for TV.

It was high demand from the millions of fans for years made them release "something" under pressure.

Now about the show...the first half of the first season (what they are releasing) is pretty weak, goofy, stupid and cheesey at times and all in all is not that great..through there are a few decent episodes in the first half that give you a taste of whats to come.

The second half of the first season (which they are not releasing) is where the series takes a drastic change for the best and becomes the classic, tough and brilliant show that made us all fans for life! Vega$ is actually my #1 fave show of alltime.

Seasons 2 and 3 are where its at folks. So, basicly what im trying to say is..dont let their plan for this to fail work!! Just buy this excuse for a release, make it sell VERY good, and then they'll have no choice but to give us the 2nd half and then hopefully, 2 full boxed sets with the rest of the series!

So anyone thats never seen the show, take my word, what they are releasing is by all means NOT what the show is all about..it gets better..WAYYY better and becomes almost a totaly different show!

Think Rockford Files meets what Miami Vice woulda been in the late 70s..and thats the REAL Vega$ that comes late in season 1, and throughout the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Television At It's Best August 17, 2009
By R. Pich

I Have Enjoyed reading some customer reviews regarding the TV series "VEGA$" and am ecstatic about it being released on DVD.Some reviews sound apologetic about Season 1 episodes but let me assure readers that these episodes more than set the tone for future ones.This series created Rob Urich's 1st hit having been on several short-lived series before.It introduced viewers to a part of the country never covered like this before,and made a star of Judy Landers, whose poster still beautifies my walls to this day.Several series have gone the Season 1,Vol. 1 route before and have continued to be released ,such as "Streets of San Francisco","Love Boat",so this is not uncommon.I figure it's very pricey to digitally re-master anything,and Vol.1 issues are a safe way to make profit.I can only say as an avid fan and person who never believed his absolute favorite series would be made available that paying their price is well worth what I'm getting.I'm sure all buyers will appreciate this series as much as I have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vegas is both classic TV and Las Vegas wrapped into an hour long show.
Vegas is a classic TV show and certainly fits the Aaron Spelling corny style. The setting is late 1970's Las Vegas before the mega casino resorts today. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars fan of detective shows
This was one of my favorite shows to watch, besides Charlie's Angels, Love Boat, Starskey and Hutch. I've enjoyed many Aaron Spelling shows as a kid. Even Dynasty and the Colbys.
