Let s be careful out there, advises Sgt. Esterhaus every morning at roll call. And as the officers and detectives at the Hill Street station house patrol their citys streets, they must indeed maintain a careful balance between serving their citizens and inciting hostility from criminal elements. Yet as dangerous as their precinct is, the men and women of Hill Street often find that their biggest battles involve protecting themselves from the Public Defenders office, self-serving bureaucrats and each other.
An incredible ensemble cast (including Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz, Dennis Franz and Betty Thomas) and sharp, layered writing helped make Hill Street Blues the most acclaimed and influential series of its day. The winner of 26 Emmy Awards (including four for Outstanding Drama Series) and a mainstay on any roll call of the greatest television shows of all time, Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series is unquestionably a must-have for any fan of engrossing and classic television.

SPOILER ALERT: I will discuss most (not all) of the aspects of the new box set here. If you want to be surprised, stop reading until after you open the set. I'm very explicit here as to what is contained in the box.
UPDATE: I now have the 2014 NEW DVD SHOUT FACTORY SET of HILL STREET BLUES: The Complete Series. Without "spoilers," allow me to say that this is THE REAL THING. If you've been waiting for a real presentation of this great series for 20/30 years - look no more. This is a very handsomely housed set of discs comprising all 7 seasons of the great show.Read more ›
Thanks Shout for correcting Fox's really massive screw up. Now please save, St. Elsewhere and (if possible) WKRP!
The Greatest Show of ALL TIME. No questions, no doubts. Great character development, story lines that were real, and talent ...and loads of guest talent. Seeing James Woods, Danny Glover, and Alfre Woodard's incredible performance in season 4 that earned her an EMMY.
Anyone who has never seen the series in its entirety will finally have their day.
Thank you Shock Entertainment for stepping up and getting the rights to what TV Guide said is the Greatest Drama of All Time.
My only disappointment is the lack of subtitles with the Complete Series. I previously owned series 1 and 2 on DVD and they had subtitles in English and Spanish. The complete box set does not have any subtitles which is a real shame. I like subtitles as there are often overlapping discussions and arcane remarks (often relating to contemporary events) which are hard to catch now, but subtitles helped to make clear.
Fantastic to have the entire series released, I just wish they had added subtitles.
