5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! 6 Dec 2004
Sledge is at last coming to PAL. I have the region 1 release and have been desperately awaiting a release that wasnt NTSC. This is a great boxed set with some great extras, including a new making of with new interviews with the cast and creator Alan Spencer, Spencer also does commentary on 4 Eps, and they are among the best you will hear on any DVD I assure you. 22 episodes and all the extras at the Amazon price is an absolute steal. Buy them up now and then prepare for the Season 2 release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoghurt eating creeps Beware! 18 July 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having heard about Sledge Hammer from my family (oddly enough while watching the sentinel!) I was a little curious towards this show, I shouldn't have worried though because this show rocks. Hammer is a slightly crazed yet strangely loveable cop who enjoys violence, shooting at jaywalkers and has spare grenades in his sports jacket. the show is a bit cheesy in parts with OTT acting but thankfully no laugh tracks are on this set (being removed because the creator finds them offensive!) in short Sledge Hammer is a really funny cop spoof rivalling naked gun and has possibly the best siege resolution ever. Lone sniper on a roof+Empty Building+Sledge Hammers Bazooka= funniest bit ever! May not be to everyones taste though but if you like your comedy gloriously cheesy then this is right up your alley

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy cult classic! 12 April 2014
In my teenage years this aired on ITV at stupid o'clock in the morning & along with Married With Children, made for a perfect excuse to stay up!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Dirty Harry" done as a comedy . . . 5 May 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
. . . that's all you should need to hear about this series to get an inkling of how good it is. But if it isn't, here's some more stuff to make you want to buy it: excellent scripts, perfect casting, great guest stars, tributes to all kinds of pop culture phenomena, mockery of all kinds of politics, general insanity, bad puns, over-the-top characters, believable and sympathetic characters, hilarious situations, and one-liners and catchphrases that can be used by anyone, anywhere.

Sheer. Comic. Genius. As any Hammer-Head (what fans of the show call themselves) will attest at great length. But I'm not writing this review for the Hammer-Heads. We've probably already all got this set by now. This review is to get others onto our "Sledge Hammer!" bandwagon.

Yes, I'm a self-avowed Hammer-Head. And I'm fairly certain you will be, too, when you buy this. You will note that I say "when," not "if." I'm THAT confident you'll be intrigued by the reviews and want to own this set. And you will not be disappointed, especially at this price!

Oh, and don't forget there's a Season 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust Me...I Know What I'm Reviewing 4 April 2005
All you Hammer Heads out there will know what a great show this was and like me probably have VHS copies from the original TV screenings and re-screenings that are more than a little worn. I was really looking forward to the DVD release of what was one of my favourite shows of the time. I was not disappointed, it was well worth the wait. There were a few episodes that I had not seen before so it was even better!
A great cast and funny scripts make this a real gem. Season 2 is even better.
This is a fantastic package and very well presented. A real credit to Anchor Bay.
The Region 1 release for the Season 2 set is scheduled for April 2005. Please can we have a Region 2 release soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 26 Sep 2013
By JoJo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is one of the best of all time. This is just so fun. Speaking to his gun, that's just great. Negative is lack of subtitles, but i don't mind. Couple of my friends doesn't understand att all, so they need finnish subtitles.
It's not my problem, so i love this.
