5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest TV shows ever........................, 28 July 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Equalizer: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I was so pleased when this show finally became available to purchase on DVD! I have very fond memories of watching this when it was shown on late night televison (ITV) in the late eighties(?!), and still remember sitting up in bed, in the dark (with the volume turned down as not to wake the rest of the family!).

I loved the theme tune, to this very day I consider it one of the greatest ever from a television show; I thought that Edward Woodward (a name once described by Sir John Gielgud as sounding like a fart in the bath), and the idea of this well dressed slightly older man being able to kick ass was so cool.

I loved the idea of him having a fascinating past, and found the gritty realism so different. I also remember loving the synth music from throughout the show, and looking back now it is very much representative of the eighties.

The show still very much holds up to todays scrutiny; the image and sound quality is at times less than perfect, but I am willing to forgive it to finally possess this series!

Nicely packaged, and at a pretty good price for so much content; superb!
