No doubt about, "The Sweeney" is one of the best television shows I ever watched. It's realistic and action-packed. And this "Complete First Series" DVD set is amazing.
The menus are really good (but the pilot DVD Regan
menus are most beautiful than this one), the picture quality is outstanding, probably the best one that I ever saw, the 5.1 sound is great and the "Music Only" tracks are a nice touch. And a large amount of bonus features are also included, like a Ian Kennedy Martin interview, audio commentary by actors and producers, reconstructed titles with the original photographs (in black & white), and episode introductions by guest stars in selected episodes. And the book, "Cover Story", with 108 pages, another nice touch, is very detailled and full of pictures. And, for strangers that doesn't talk English very well, like me, the english subtitles are very welcome. Just one bad thing: Would be nice if the film "Regan" was included on this set. But nothing is perfect. At least, you can buy the original Armchair Cinema pilot for the series right here on Amazon.
If you are a "Sweeney" fan, or if you like a good old TV show, this box set is highly recommended.
