Editorial Reviews

The sexual tension began to boil between homicide detectives Sgt. Rita Lee Lance (Mitzi Kapture) and Sgt. Chris Lorenzo (Rob Estes) in this second season of the adult crime drama that rocked late-night television. But for Lance and Lorenzo, glamorous Palm Beach also pulses with illicit affairs, kinky encounters, cold-blooded murders, and their own dark secrets.These are the deadly days and steamy nights of TV’s sexiest cop partners, featuring such guest stars as Patrick Muldoon, Andrea Thompson, Edward Albert, Roddy Piper, Erin Gray, Andrew Stevens, Tracy Scoggins, Rex Smith, Lana Clarkson and more. SILK STALKINGS – THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON includes all 23 explosive episodes, plus exclusive new Extras featuring series creator Stephen J. Cannell, composer Mike Post and much more.

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.

When you look at police or forensics show nowadays it's as if you are looking at true crime scenes. This stark realism was thankfully missing from the glossy Silk Stalkings series, and made it that much more entertaining and relaxing to watch after a hard day's work. Chris & Rita were good-looking, well-dressed sexy partners who wore Miami Vice pastels and handled cases in beautiful millionaires homes in Palm Beach, Florida. The dialogue was sharp and funny, the side characters interesting, and there were popular-in-the-day celebrity guest stars, some of which are listed below along with their episode titles from this Season 2 DVD set:
