These 4 films were never going to be as good as the original series . That said - the main characters are just as engaging , and the performances have the high standard you would expect from these two fine actors . The plots are so-so , but that never was the point of Cagney and Lacey . Apparently the sub-title of ' The Menopause Years ' has annoyed some women , and worried others about being non-PC . Well , ' ain't that just Cagney and Lacey ' - still upsetting some people . The first film does actually see Cagney with menopausal symtoms , and it is portrayed with the brio and disrepect you would expect from this character .
Are they older ? Yes , of course they are . Could they have looked younger ? Yes , of course they could - if the usual make-up and box of tricks had been employed - but quite rightly that was not the intention . Much of the four films deal with ageing . A very brave move in todays world . But C & L was never afraid of anything .
The biggest thing missing is the cut and thrust and wise-cracking of the squad room . Both C & L are now working for the DA's office , and this is rather restrictive , bringing a somewhat hushed tone to much of the proceedings . The scenes in the ladies room are also a big, big loss . Some of the best acting , and best scenes of the original series were done ' in the John ' . But hey , if you are a fan - you will love seeing them again . If you are not - then please start with the absolutely fabulous original series . The unique chemistry between Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly is still there . If you want acting , if you want a camera shot to last longer than two seconds , if you want the characters to react and show emotion , if you don't want endless boring pseudo-science about horrific murders , if you want the script not to be a list of tersely spit out wooden sentences a la CSI - ie if you want real drama , and real women - buy it .
Conference Christine !

I'm in the UK and was really looking forward to these as I'm a big C&L fan. I took care to check compatibility by reading the entire blurb onsite but despite being described as PAL, and "All Regions" - when received, none of the DVDs would play on my DVD player. I did manage to get video output on my PC-DVD but no sound - so, all in all, a pretty useless purchase. BUYER BEWARE!

The Best Cops Return!! 18 Jun. 2009
By E. Hornaday - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

The first film re-introduces Cagney and Lacey, and what they've been up to in the intervening years. Things have changed. Lacey has quit the force, and Cagney is now a lieutenant working for the D.A.'s Office. But the biggest change is that Cagney has married, and the two best friends have lost touch.

"Both Sharon and Tyne had aged and put on some weight and we would make no attempt to mask that, but would, instead, hang a lantern on it. It was quickly decided that, consistent with her characters oft-stated desire, Lacey would by then have taken her retirement while, in those intervening years, Cagney would garner a major promotion and (much to Sharon s dismay), gotten married. Even casting her old pal, TONY award winner James Naughton as the husband, could not get Sharon to be happy about this decision...which we defended as a device we felt would help sell the passage of time to our audience," Rosenzweig said.

In addition to Naughton's James Burton, the guest-cast includes Susan Anspach, who plays Deborah Nelson.

Happily, most of the supporting cast from the series returns, including John Karlen as Mary Beth's husband, Harvey Lacey; Al Waxman as Lt. Samuels; Carl Lumbly as Det. Marcus Petrie; and Martin Kove as Detective Isbecki. New cast members are David Paymer, who plays Deputy Assistant District Attorey Feldberg; Vonetta McGee who portrays Petrie's wife, Claudia; Kenny Johnston who replaces Troy W. Slaten as the Lacey's son, Michael; and Molly Orr as the couple's daughter, Molly.

"Despite virtually the entire series cast making an appearance in this first of the quartet of films, we make it clear in the early going that both Cagney and Lacey have moved on and that the familiar actors that are seen in those early moments will not be part of the shows going forward. The device to get Lacey back to work and, once again, in alliance with Christine Cagney not only worked well for us, but provided residual emotional material for all four films," Rosenzweig, said.

I won't ruin the movies by providing spoilers. Just know that fans, new and old, of Cagney and Lacey will not be disappointed.

John Karlen, an incredible actor who is sadly underrated, appears throughout the movie reunions. Other guest cast members include: George Coe as Dan Broadbent; Lynn Thigpen as Capt. Gigi Cardenas; Chip Zien as Assistant District Attorney Douglas Trayne; and Sandra Oh, as Officer Angela Lum.

The first movie is also being released in a separate single-disc package on the same release date as the boxed set.

4 Great TV Movies & Outstanding Extras on Each! 14 Oct. 2009
By Pageturner in NYC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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!

Cagney & Lacey box set was great 18 Jan. 2011
By ken in Ohio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I bought this box set of Cagney & Lacey for my wife who was a big fan of the series when it was on. However, we both really enjoyed all four T.V. movies that came in this set. As a side note, the movie "The Return" which is sold seperately, is included in this box set. I didn't know that before purcahse, and bought it seperately also. Oh well, theres a tip for the next person..... We own season one of the T.V. series on DVD also and wish they would come out with additional seasons. I don't understand why they aren't out yet.

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.
