This review is from: Hill Street Blues - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Way back in the eighties, long before Channel 4 was run by children, for children - we had Hill Street Blues.
One of the great milestones of modern American TV it was a huge jump forwards from the glut of formulaic cop shows of the 1970's. Here we got to see the real lives and loves outside of the precinct and for the first time got an insight as to why the characters were like they were, good and bad. This program really coloured my teen years and I'm thrilled that it's finally being released on DVD. I never thought it would happen.
NYPD Blue, The Shield, CSI Whatever - none of these would have existed without Hill Street Blues.
Here's to Season 2, 3, 4 etc.
