Enjoyable TV Series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stingray: Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I remember seeing the Pilot which was shown in a feature length TV film a few years ago but don't remember actually watching the series itself in the 80's. However, I enjoyed the feature and the purchase price was too good not to buy the complete series. Sadly it only seems to be available as a US Import but thankfully we have a multi-region DVD player, which you will require if you purchase this DVD. The series does resemble others, you have the Stingray car [ Knight Rider had a sporty car but this car doesn't talk!] you have the good looking mystery guy known only as Ray played by Nick Mancuso [similar story to The Equalizer although The Equalizer uses more fire power] helping others in need through an advert placed in the paper offering a '65 black Stingray for Barter Only to the right party', Ray doesn't work for money but favours, he helps you, if he decides to take on the case [some of his clients have heard about him from word of mouth], and you will see him one more time after that, when he comes to you for the favour you owe him, which could be something quite simple or something quite complex but you must repay the favour when asked. Ray has many skills and there are a few flash backs to his past; just when you think someone has found Ray's true identity you find that it is someone completely different and you are left wondering again who he really is. Lots of twists and turns, action, it's a series I will happily watch time and time again. However my only disappointment with this series is the Pilot has been cut, the one shown on television features more than the Pilot on the DVD and the parts that have been cut from the DVD episode give a little more insight into Ray, the TV version shows him looking for a kidnapped girl which has been cut from the DVD version. Don't let that put you off buying this though.
