Editorial Reviews


Take a hard-nosed, strong-willed, undercover cop outraged by crime and the loopholes in the United States justice system and team him up with a sexy, no-nonsense policewoman whose unorthodox tactics sometimes rival his own, and you get HUNTER!

This special collection includes all 152 episodes of this 3-time Emmy® nominated series on 28 DVDs and features such guest stars as: George Clooney, Eric Estrada, Jesse Ventura, Dennis Franz, Brian Dennehy, Ed O'Neill, Bruce Davison, Garrett Morris, Jerry Orbach, Lauren Lane, Isaac Hayes and hundreds more!

Fred Dryer stars as LAPD detective, Rick Hunter, who ruled Saturday nights for 7 highly successful seasons on NBC with a quick gun, an iron fist, a hair-trigger temper and a law all his own. The stunning Stepfanie Kramer brought an edgy attitude as Hunter's partner, Sgt. Dee Dee The Brass Cupcake McCall during the series first six seasons. Throughout all their action-packed exploits, this dynamic duo remained united by a common goal: upholding law and order!

If you love the Hunter Series and enjoy having entire sets, this product will deliver. However, this is the cheesiest, cheapest, crappiest DVD set I have purchased! (MIAMI VICE- THE COMPLETE SERIES was the last set I had purchased, so naturally I am disappointed!) The quality of the picture is good, considering this was produced mid 1980's and restored so we can have it. I have absolutely NO COMPLAINT there.
I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED with the packaging, and the lay-out. All 28 discs come in one flimsy plastic case that measures approximately 7 1/2" long, 5 1/2" wide, and 2" thick (It is definitely a space saver!). Each of the DVD's come in a black PAPER sleeve with a clear cellophane circular window where you can view the Season #, along with the episodes that are contained on that particular disc. The seasons are printed in different colors so you CAN tell them apart. All of the discs are stacked into ONE tight pile within the outer plastic casing. These are single sided discs, with the Season and Episode titles printed on the opposite side. There are NO EPISODE listings anywhere on the packaging. When viewing the Menu, the titles are NUMBERED and LISTED on each disc.
On the POSITIVE, I love watching FRED DRYER and STEPHANIE KRAMER in this series. I think they have GREAT CHEMISTRY, are adorable, and are a pleasure and joy to watch.
I tend to gravitate to the TV Series of the 1980's because I enjoy seeing REAL PEOPLE who have NATURAL BODY PARTS, some character lines on their faces, without face lifts, unnaturally glowing-white bleached teeth, blown-up trout-pout lips, fake breasts etc. I guess I'm just old-fashioned, and proud to be this way! Anyway, I'm glad to have the complete series in my possession and I would still buy it again, even with the crappy packaging.
Hope some of you will find this information helpful as you're considering purchasing this set.

The first 3 seasons of Hunter were released a few years ago, and then like many of my other favorites, the releases just stopped. I don't think the studios realize that this makes many consumers a little shy to begin to purchase a new show, for fear they may not get the entire set. I have several "partial collections" of shows that have just stopped being released for reasons unknown to the common man. It is very sad that many great classics such as Gunsmoke, The Love Boat, Night Court, Mama's Family, and countless others have been cut after only one or more seasons, yet we are bombarded with junk being released every day that is barely entertainment- then again look at what is considered prime time TV today.

Hunter was one of my favorite shows growing up and I am glad to see that Mill Creek came up with the intelligent idea of releasing the entire series. A serious fan will purchase this and be done with it. Sure, the price is a little high, but you are getting 7 seasons and over 150 episodes. Usually when the shows are broken up into seasons you end up paying more overall (This way equates to $12.85 a season.) This way you know that you are getting the entire set- a fan does not have to wait forever at the mercy of some studio that is making billions of dollars to see his favorite shows. As long as the DVD's are clean and contain all the episodes, I really don't care about all the extras that the studios load onto other DVD's, usually in an attempt to justify the high price.

There seems to be a lot of curiousity and strong feelings regarding the upcoming set of Hunter: The Complete Series on DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment, so I wanted to stop by and share my experiences with it.

On Tuesday July 20, I interviewed the VP of Product Acquisitions from Mill Creek about Hunter and a bunch of their other releases (including his attempt to get the BATMAN TV series on DVD), and we also took fan questions about Hunter.

I've also personally reviewed a copy of the set and posted my findings at [...]. I can't say that every episode is completely uncut. In fact, I'm sure that's not the case. However, a large number of episodes clock in at the 47-48 minute mark, which does seem to be a complete episode for an hour show from the 1980s. The pilot is also most likely complete as it comes in at over 95 minutes for a two-hour timeslot.

However, I can tell you that while the DVD may not have the cuts in footage that cable does to add more commercials, there are cuts for music purposes. The Chaka Khan episode has all her singing edited out. It doesn't affect the story at all, however. You should know that Mill Creek did NOT do any editing on its own on these episodes for ANY reason. Any cuts or music substitutions that were made were done by Stephen J. Cannell Productions because of the extreme high cost of licensing music for DVD releases.

The versions of Hunter that are on this DVD are basically the "new, official" versions that the public will see whether it be on DVD, online, or in syndication unless the cost for music rights comes down. It's as simple as that. It's either this or nothing. Don't bother to wait hoping for a new set with all the original music because that's simply not going to happen.

The good news is you get all seven seasons of a 1980s network TV show for a great price. The bad news is a) there are no extras, including no subtitles, b) the packaging is only just adequate (but space-saving), and c) the disc quality is marginal; the first disc we watched has freezes and drop-outs. Other reviewers have indicated that the episodes vary in length, indicating editting, and some of the music has been replaced presumably for copyright reasons.

So, if you are looking for a collector-grade set, this is not for you. But, if you just want lots of TV at a great price, you should be happy with this set.
