5.0 out of 5 stars This show has it all!, 19 Mar 2010

This review is from: Vegas: First Season 1 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
To be honest, growing up in UK i hadn;t heard of Vega$ and only really stumbled across it recently, but if you like shows like Rockford, Starsky & Hutch, & Hunter, then you'll lover this. It's nothing ground breaking in terms of stories & themes, with all the regualar actors playing the baddies, but what Vega$ has got that makes its so good is the backdrop of 1970's Las Vegas. Today we are all used to the stock footage of Vegas hotels & lights, but here we see the still developing strip in day light, mixed in with the very famous landmarks. Added to that is the fantasic Robert Ulrich, as PI Dan Tanner, he is the kinda guy you'd want to be when you were a kid, hes smooth, kind, clever, and of course good with the ladies. Finally you have a great on screen relationship between Tanner and Slick, slick being the ex gangster turned hotel owner, played by Tony Curtis, who keeps Dan on a retainer. The screen lights up when the pair are togather, but Ulrich's like-ability steals the show.

It's a real pain the season has been split over two volumes, and is only out as region 1, but that aside its a visual feast.

Great, cheesy, unsophisticated good guy / bad guys fun.

Note this is only Volume 1 of the first series - it says so on the box cover, but not the product title

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80s PI Series, 30 Oct 2013

A classic series from the 80s starring Robert Ulrich as Dan Tanna, a private investigator working for Tony Curtis' casino owner but also taking on other cases. The stories are strong and there are lots of likeable characters, with all of the glamour you would expect from a series set in Las Vegas in the 80s. The stories pull no punches, with unexpected twists and turns. If you vaguely remember this from when it was shown on TV, you must buy this - it is every bit as good as you remember.
