Product Description

Lauded as the best show of its generation, L.A. Law was created by Steven Bochco and David Kelly (Hill St Blues, NYPD Blue, Ally McBeal) and is now available on DVD for the first time ever! Centred around a top Los Angeles law firm, L.A. Law follows the lives of its partners and employees both inside and outside the courtroom (and often inside the bedroom). Starring Jimmy Smits and Harry Hamlin, L.A. Law was one of the first TV dramas to deal with emerging social issues of the time such as domestic violence, racism and HIV. This was all whilst combining both tense drama and quirky humour, inventing a format that went on to be copied in many major network series. Winner of 6 Emmy Awards, 5 Golden Globes and 7 People's Choice Awards. Region 2 Release

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!!!! On DVD at last!!! 15 Dec 2011
Back in February 1987, ITV started to screen the first series of a new US legal drama LA LAW. Screening at 9pm every Thursday through until July, LA LAW quickly became a ratings hit. Previous courtroom drama on ITV had been provided by John Mortimer's Rumpole of the Bailey. LA LAW was something different.
This first series introduced us to the characters played by Harry Hamlin (Michael Kuzak), Jimmy Smits (Victor Sifuentes), Susan Dey (Grace Van Owen), Jill Eikenberry (Ann Kelsey), Richard Dysart (Leland McKenzie) and Corbin Bernsen (Arnie Becker) among others.
This UK release of LA LAW is a worldwide first. Fans in the US have been waiting for a long time for a release there without success.
Episodes on this set -
1 Pilot (10 February 1987)
2 Those Lips, That Eye (12 February 1987)
3 The House of the Rising Flan (19 February 1987)
4 The Princess and the Wiener King (26 February 1987)
5 Simian Chanted Evening (5 March 1987)
6 Slum Enchanted Evening (12 March 1987)
7 Raiders of the Lost Bark (19 March 1987)
8 Gibbon Take (26 March 1987)
9 The Venus Butterfly (2 April 1987)
10 Fry Me to the Moon (9 April 1987)
11 El Sid (16 April 1987)
12 Sidney, the Dead-Nosed Reindeer (23 April 1987)
13 Prince Kuzak in a Can (30 April 1987)
14 The Douglas Fur Ball (7 May 1987)
15 December Bribe (14 May 1987)
16 Beef Jerky (21 May 1987)
17 Becker on the Rox (28 May 1987)
18 Fifty Ways to Floss Your Lover (4 June 1987)
19 The Grace of Wrath (18 June 1987)
20 Sparky Brackman RIP ?-1987 (25 June 1987)
21 Oy Vey! Wilderness! (2 July 1987)
22 Pigmalion (9 July 1987)

Lets hope that this long overdue release is the first to come of the whole series.

***LA Law - Season 2 [DVD] is out in April! ***

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have 22 Jun 2013
By Lynn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I tottally agree with all those people who have written, a fan or not this show has been entertaining , an absolute must have . For those fans of Kuzak and Van Owen it is worth getting LA LAW THE MOVIE too as this brings a twist ..... Which i will not spoil. However this is only on Region1 .

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, after 25 years of waiting... 28 Nov 2011
This awesome drama created by Steven Bochco & Terry Louise Fisher finally gets released! Here's hoping seasons 2-8 will follow. A complete box set would be nice... This is one of my all-time favourite shows. It has everything and I can say that honestly as I was lucky enough to catch a complete re run on ITV3 seven years ago. I am truly overjoyed by this news and would urge anyone to watch it. You will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hello again! 12 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Purely a trip down memory lane; I remember watching the series on TV. Was and still am a huge fan of Hill Street Blues which was a completely new format at that time. LA Law has aged very well and still manages to keep you interested in the people and their stories. Sometimes the hairdos, clothes etc. make me smile - you had to have been there, I suppose. Worth revisiting, sit back, and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars California Lawyering 1 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ah, the 1980's. The suits. The shoulder pads. The days when American shows ran for fifty minutes plus the adverts. And when ITV and the BBC would show quality import dramas on their main terrestrial channels in primetime. Not that ITV had more than one channel of any kind back then. But you know what I mean.

Producer Steven Bochco was riding high on the success of Hill Street Blues. Which had ushered in a whole new era of tv drama by telling realistic stories, shooting the show to make it look that way, and making it character focused with a large cast of endearing individals. The show told stories that were as much about them as they were about the crimes of the week.

Having done that for Cop Shows, he then moved to legal shows. With L.A. Law. A staple of ITV at 9pm on a Thursday night for quite some time [although they dropped it with two season to go, as their perception of 'mainstream' tv changed] and whilst it was never quite as acclaimed as Hill Street Blues - or as it might have been if it had come first - it's still fondly remembered by many.

Telling stories about the Lawyers at Los Angeles based McKenzie, Brackman, Chaney and Kuzak, the show had a big cast, ranging from paternal and wise old partner Leland McKenzie [Richard Dysart] to ladies man divorce lawyer Arnold Becker [Corbin Bernsen] and potentially nave new associate single mom lawyer Abby Perkins [Michelle Greene], the show's main focus was on Lawyer Micheal Kuzak [Harry Hamlin] and his romance with prosecutor Grace Van Owen [Susan Dey]. But the breakout star, in one of his earliest roles, was Jimmy Smits as new associate Victor Sifuentes.

5.0 out of 5 stars after more than 20 years 9 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's still great! It was recommended to me by my parents but I didn't think I would enjoy it especially with all the courtroom dramas we have on tv today. However, I can confidently say that it's one of my fave legal tv shows along with boston legal, the practice and law and order. It is pretty unique as well and the characters are captivating. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an entertaining show to watch.
