5.0 out of 5 stars Witchblade the Series on DVD... At Last!! April 22, 2008
Format:DVD
Not only was it one of the most complex series in the history of cable television, Witchblade was easily one of the most underrated. Witchblade debuted in a full-length television pilot on TNT and then after its initial success became a full-fledged series in 2001. In many ways the show was ahead of its time. It managed to be both science-fiction (when the genre was suffering from unoriginal sequels and poorly made remakes), fantasy (before the genre was validated by The Lord of the Rings and Pan's Labyrinth) and added a healthy dose of cop drama. The intricate plotlines featured such esoteric subject matter as psychic visions, cloning, abnormal psychology, time travel, reincarnation, demonic possession, mythological motifs, multiple conspiracies, occult philosophical ideologies, and also benefited from clever pop-culture in-jokes.
The series was brought to life by strong acting from a diverse, if not at times dysfunctional cast. Witchblade also featured a greatly varying soundtrack (this DVD does not include all of the artists I've named here; see my comment for further explanation) that included everyone from The Crystal Method to Peter Gabriel, from Rob Zombie to Enya, from Three Dog Night to U2. The series burst off the small screen with great visual flare, the special effects were almost on a par with the first Matrix film, and the camerawork was equally impressive.
There have been some fans of the comics who have complained about the many differences between the show and the comics.

Format:DVD
I saw the series when it initially aired on TNT, and I found it fresh, exciting and captivating. The combination of pure escapist fantasy and cop drama worked well in this incarnation. Yes, it was strange, but strange doesn't mean that it wasn't entertaining. By juxtaposition of an ages-old metaphysical history against Sara Pezzini's attempts to cope with that in the framework of her contemporary physical world, it created a whole new universe for the writers to dabble in. I believe that people who enjoyed "Sliders" "Farscape" and "Quantum Leap" would have enjoyed this show, as well.

All good drama contains conflict, and in this case the conflict was manifest in Sara's efforts to reconcile the mundane and the metaphysical. At first a hard-bitten cynic, we see Sara slowly and begrudgingly grow spiritually and emotionally as she begins to accept and embrace her destiny as the current bearer of the Witchblade.

I was introduced first to the TV series, and then I want back to check out the comic: yet I found the series more accessible. At points during the series you were left wondering along with Sara if she was hallucinating or having visions of events that actually happened--which helped build tension in the storyline.

The important thing is that within the context of that story, it made sense, and helped move the plot forward effectively. It makes no sense to attempt to bring comic-book characters to the big screen, if all you're going to do is regurgitate the comic-book legend exactly as it appeared in print. An effective re-imagining actually takes old characters and makes them fresh and relevant again, as in the re-imagining of the Superboy legend in the Smallville TV series. I've read the Superman and Superboy comics growing up, which were mostly kind of corny.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Cop Drama, Bad Comic Adaptation April 18, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a diehard Witchblade fan, you're going to buy and enjoy this tv series regardless of what any review says. What I offer here is a review for the "discerning" viewer. It is possible to be a fan of an intellectual property (such as a comic book) and yet maintain a clear, honest judgment about different aspects of the property's use in different media, something that fanboys and fangirls do not understand. The bottom line is that as a cop drama, the Witchblade tv series is top notch. It's one of the best cop dramas ever to grace the small screen. However, as a faithful adaptation of the Witchblade comic book, it is a complete and utter failure. By the time they were three or four episodes into the first season, the tv show had severed all ties with the comic book and had become its own independent entity. The only thing the comic book and the show have in common is that they are both called "Witchblade," and some of the character's names are the same. The argument that one can't directly reproduce the comic book on the tv screen is a cop-out (no pun intended), because the tv show doesn't even try to represent the comic. On the contrary, once the first two episodes were concluded (known as Witchblade: The Movie), the tv series immediately set about to distance itself as much as it could from the comic. I could go into detail about this, but I don't wish to do a disservice to viewers who have never seen the show before by spoiling plot elements. Suffice it to say that what you are getting here is not a television adaptation of the comic book, but a different creation entirely.

That said, I really have to give props to Yancy Butler, the actress who plays Sara Pezzini in this series.

How About Reviewing the Actual DVD?
Yes very disappointed that there are no reviews. Sounds like you have all seen it but how about someone telling me what it's like as I have never seen it and wanted a review to see if it was worth a buy.
