ONE DAY I WILL ASK YOU FOR A FAVOR...,
This review is from: Stingray: Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)Stingray: Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
This series ran for two seasons in the mid 1980s, although it's one I can't remember and I don't know if it was shown in the UK. It's a real shame, because it deserves to be remembered as much as the other well known 1980s classic TV shows that I love. It reminds me of a mixture of those shows I love, like for example "Miami Vice" and "The Equalizer".
This release is by Mill Creek, they release a lot of cheap boxsets with films which I have many of, so I knew not to expect anything special. Another bargain though by Mill Creek at under £6 brand new with free post. Apparently this has a few music edits in a few episodes, but I couldn't possibly say which. Picture quality is good.
Just a brief description about the packaging, you get both seasons on five single sided discs. Episode titles are on the discs and menus, but no suprise from a Mill Creek release, you don't get any booklet or brief episode info. The DVD box is about the width of two standard DVD cases together or just a little less. The five DVDs are stacked on top together, each in a paper sleeve with window. I have listed the episodes from both seasons below and which discs they are on.
Pilot Episode - (July 14th, 1985)
Season 1 (8 episodes) - (March 11th, 1986 - May 13th, 1986)
Pilot Episode - Part 1
Pilot Episode - Part 2
1) Ancient Eyes
3) Below the Line
4) Sometimes You Gotta Sing the Blues
5) Abnormal Psych
6) Orange Blossom
7) Less than the Eye Can See
8) That Terrible Swift
Season 2 (15 episodes) - (January 9th, 1987 - May 8th, 1987)
1) The Greeter
4) Bring Me the Hand That Hit Me
6) The First Time Is Forever
8) The Neniwa
9) The Second Finest Man Who Ever Lived
10) Night Maneuvers
11) Cry Wolf
12) Blood Money
13) Anytime, Anywhere
15) One Way Ticket to the End of the Line
All episodes including the pilot are numbered 1 - 25 on the discs, so season 1 episode 1 is actually numbered episode 3 on this boxset.
