Editorial Reviews

THE RETURN: While many "return" television movies don't do the original series justice, Cagney and Lacey - The Return maintains the high standards set by the original series. The plot renews the friendship and interplay between Cagney and Lacey, but later in their lives. Things have changed: Mary Beth Lacey has quit the police force and having little success in finding work and Christine Cagney is now a married lieutenant working for the D.A.'s office...and facing the specter of menopause. They may have lost touch, but circumstances bring them back together again.The Return remains true to the series. It is quality drama that concentrates on the personal lives and the interaction between two complex women dealing with a tough and dangerous job. Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly are amazing actresses playing two of the greatest female characters ever portrayed on television. This is a perfect movie, especially for fans of Cagney & Lacey or for anyone who enjoys drama about women. TOGETHER AGAIN: New York's toughest lady detectives re-team to solve the murder of a homeless transient who had been terrorizing the residents of a posh apartment building with screaming threats, insults and physical intimidation. Though the cops think the culprit is another street person, Cagney and Lacey believe the real killer is one of the tenants, many of whom have ample reason to have murdered the boorish bum. THE VIEW THROUGH THE GLASS CEILING: Cagney and Lacey must investigate a local precinct when a murder leads to suspicion of police corruption. When the findings of the D.A.'s police corruption investigation turn out to be useful to Cagney's political ambitions, she makes a choice that will have a lasting impact on her life, Lacey's and the twenty-year friendship between them. TRUE CONVICTIONS: After the girlfriend of a murder victim from her building commits suicide, Chris gets romantically involved with the girl's still-married father. Meanwhile, Chris and Mary Beth are assigned to work New York's first capital murder case in a decade, and everyone seems to have an opinion on capital punishment.

Cagney and Lacey are back - my favorite female police partners return in this four-disc boxed set featuring all of their reunion movies on DVD for the first time.

The team of Christine Cagney, portrayed brilliantly by Sharon Gless, and Mary Beth Lacey, portrayed equally well by Tyne Daly, hardly need any introduction. Co-starring in Cagney & Lacey during the 1980's, the women portrayed two women detectives fighting crime and sexism in the New York City Police Department.

In doing so, Cagney & Lacey redefined gender roles in TV dramas. Now, it hardly seems possible that a series starring two women leads would not only be controversial, but a true pioneer in challenging the sexism that prevented women from obtaining untraditional jobs, but it was. While another groundbreaking cop show of that era, Police Woman, starring Angie Dickinson, should also be lauded, it was Cagney & Lacey that went much further in focusing the series spotlight on two professional women, and dealt directly with the sexism that they encountered among the public and within the own New York City police department.

The series went off the air in 1988, after 125 series episodes. Four reunion movies followed, and are collected here on DVD for the first time: Cagney Lacey: The Return, 1994; Cagney & Lacey: Together Again, 1995; Cagney & Lacey: The View Through the Glass Ceiling, 1995; and Cagney & Lacey: True Convictions, 1996.

"Inside this package you will also find some history excerpted from my memoir `Cagney & Lacey... and Me,' along with some other observations about the four reunion films," said Barney Rosenzweig, creator-producer of the series and the movies. Rosenzweig is also married in real-life to Sharon Gless.

I don't understand why after season 1 we get the post tv movies and not season 2. can someone explain this to me ?
It's great to have the series finale but we want all the remaining seasons to be released as well.

Whats amazing about these four TV movies is how they retain the feeling of the original TV show. Each film feels like a slightly extended TV episode (and that's a compliment!). Just like the wonderful series, there is a central mystery to each but the REAL focus and power is in the the lives of Cagney and Lacey. The writers wisely chose to remain faithful to the TV show and not try to change a winning format just because they had more time to tell the story. These four films were made when several other TV shows were being brought back to TV in reocurring TV movie formats (like Columbo, The Rockford Files and Perry Mason). Its a shame that C&L was treated so badly when CBS changed presidents and after very impressive reviews and ratings, the second two TV movies were dumped in bad time slots with no advance advertising. Each film contains a newly-produced 20-minute interview that offers fascinating, affectionate, and brutally honest recollections by Tyne Daly, Sharon Gless, producer Barney Rosenweitz and creator Barbara Corday. You can't go wrong purchasing this DVD set. Remember that your purchase shows there is an interest in bringing the complete series to DVD. So, make your purchase in the hopes of guaranteeing their release!

I don't like that they refer to this set as The Menopause Years, but I guess there wasn't a better title when they were filming these movies. Some might find these releases campy, but I truly loved these characters and I'm a fan of the phenomenal actresses who portray them.

I am so glad I ordered this. I can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it is to watch them get older and deal with life on older terms. It was well plotted, well acted - to say the least - it was funny, and bittersweet too. The chemistry between Cagney and Lacey is fabulous!! It was simply GREAT - will watch every few months for sure.

Great movies and a great price. Quality is excellent - the only thing I object to is the that they called the DVD "The Menopause Years".....far from that - these ladies are never going to age. Love the movies. Got all four.

For all Amazon customers who bought and love these DVDs but have been asking about the DVD release of the full 125 episodes of the original series - you can help achieve this! Head on over to the official Cagney & Lacey website at www[dot]cagneyandlacey[dot]com and complete the survey which - if sufficient customers respond - will be used to try to persuade MGM to release all 125 episodes on DVD! Thanks! Cagney & Lacey's WebSquad.

As an admirer of Tyne Daly's acting skills, I looked forward to seeing these stories on DVD. Unfortunately, though the effort was good, the effort showed and for me, that spoiled the viewing experience. And this set is not inexpensive. The stories are going to be one-and-done, so I cannot justify the cost.

The stories are good enough, even though they do require the viewer to suspend disbelief here and there. But, to me, these DVDs are better borrowed from the library or from Netflix and not purchased.
