This is the continuing story of a pair of Palm Beach (Florida) detectives investigating crimes of passion, AKA "sik stalkings". The detectives for the first four seasons are Chris Lorenzo and Rita Lee Lance, played respectively by Rob Estes and Mitzi Kapture. If you're new to "Silk Stalkings" you should really look elsewhere, as the rest of this review assumes you're moderately familiar with the show.

This was the second and last CBS "Crimetime After Prime Time" season before it moved to USA network.

This season nailed the formula "Silk Stalkings" was to use for years to come. The golfing metaphors for sex are a thing of the past, and Rita's brain aneurism is never mentioned again. Mitzi Kapture does a voice-over in most episodes, but it's not the constant presence it was in Season One. While male guest roles continue to have diversity of character, women in guest roles are pretty much either Saints or Sinners, and the Sinners only have two ways to go: Sluts and Sociopaths. Thankfully, the fetish for big 1980's hairdos and hosiery ("silk stockings" -- get it?) has largely disappeared. And of course we still see too many San Diego hillsides to convincingly stand in for the flat land around Palm Beach.

As this was a late-night budget show, we still get grainy video. The intro is unchanged; Mitzi Kapture still appears first in the credits with the big 1980's hair. (Later Rob and Mitzi alternated first and second billing.) Closed captions are new this season. In a budget-constrained show that's heavy on sex it's not surprising to see the occasional lapse in censorship; I counted two accidental nipple exposures (down from three in Season One).

SILK STALKINGS is like a crazy love child of BAYWATCH and MIAMI VICE and could have been directed by soft porn master Zalman King. It was early 90s TV pushed to its limits of nudity and violence. Originally the show ran late at night on CBS (in a 10:30 CST time slot) and also on USA. CBS let it go after a couple of seasons and started their Letterman show while USA kept it running for seven or eight seasons. What makes this batch of shows is the cast. Rita Lee Lance (Mitzi Kapture) and Chris Lorenzo (Rob Estes) were perfectly matched to play buddy cops of a different kind - platonic male and female buddies. They were great together, and this season shows them in strong form. Sure - it's goofy, silly, sexy fun! But oddly the show is kinda addictive.

I noticed one episode on disc four seems to be missing 10 minutes. It's called "Dead Weight". It runs only 37 minutes versus all the others at 47 minutes, and has no resolution to the crime at all. Don't know if all the sets have this error, but contact Anchor Bay via their website if you notice it. Hopefully they will send replacement discs.

Apart from that the picture is clear and the episodes are uncut. Not much in the way of extras, but it seems like a lot fun just to see these cops back on the beat in San Diego... oops! I mean in Florida (it was shot in California and sometimes you can tell).

This is just to let Silk fans know that Anchor Bay Entertainment has fixed the problem with the episode Dead Weight. I just got my replacement today fedex. If you still have a disk 4 with the missing 15 mintues of Dead Weight or buy the set in the store and it has this problem, Call Anchor Bay Entertainment don't waste your time trying to email them, There phone number is on the bottom of there web page. They were real nice to talk to. Thank you Anchor Bay for fixing this and to all the Silk fans who contacted them about this problem.

The earlier reviewer is correct. The episode Dead Weight on Disc Four is missing a key few minutes, namely the resolution. We don't learn who the real killer is. It is not a defective disc, the episode is just missing several minutes. This is probably the case across the board.

I've had many problems with Anchor Bay (defective discs, missing discs, etc.). It's too bad that we have to deal with them if we want some of our favorite shows, especially Highlander. I have had to return/exchange every boxed set of that show because of defective discs.

I guess I'll have to go to a fan site for Silk Stalkings and find an episode guide of the shows to learn who the killer is in the Dead Weight episode. It's like reading a mystery novel only to discover someone has ripped out the last few pages.

Shame on you, Anchor Bay Entertainment.

Season 2 is really where this show grew a cult -- the two leads really developed their great chemistry here -- it's what makes this show a (weird) pleasure -- you have two likeable cops who are best friends, who solve these completely ludicrous, sleazy crimes, in a show that had no budget, so they made the cop station look like a Roller Disco/Goofy Golf funpark, and all the woman (save our Rita) sluts! Season 2 was when Gordon Dawson (a Sam Peckinpah companero) started writing a lot of episodes (4 this season) that really capture the somewhat over-the-top absurd nature of the project and help define the two leads' relationship (one of his episodes from this season, the nutty and mostly comic SOUL KISS, is many fans' favorite). This season has a much lighter tone and better scripts than the 1st season (or the soap-opera-like 4th and 5th seasons), we get better guest stars like Tim Thomerson and Roddy Piper (and the OTHER sister from CHARLES IN CHARGE!), and the supporting cast was at its best (John Byner as Cotton Dunn and Dennis Paladino as Donnie "Dogs" Dibarto get their best episodes this season), and you can generally tell they were having fun doing it. Season 3 is good too, (it was the first with Captain Lipschitz), but if you want only a taste, or are a Cannell fan who wants an introduction, season 2 is the way to go.

The DVD is fine -- it has the same generic extras as other Cannell Season 2 sets, like Greatest american hero -- and one episode is offered in French, and one in Spanish. But the shows are uncut and look good, so I'm not complainin'.
