4.0 out of 5 stars Where is the third season?, 9 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Hill Street Blues: Complete Season Two [DVD] (DVD)
It has now been two years since i bought seasons 1 and 2 of "HSB", and i am starting to think that the subsequent seasons may simply never see the light of day. (Did the first two seasons not sell well enough?)

Just to concur with the previous reviews of this excellent series. The programmes have definitely been edited, which is extremely annoying. The picture quality is relatively grainy, but i suppose that we just have to live with that downside. Some of the background music comes across as being a little reminiscent of "Magnum PI" and "The A Team", thanks to good old Mike Post. I find this does rather make the series seem a little dated.

However, the groundbreaking format remains truly wonderful. The cast is absolutely excellent. None more so, perhaps, than Michael Conrad as Sergeant Philip Freemason Esterhaus. He was never adequately replaced, after his death. But that was because he was utterly irreplaceable. I didn't much care for Robert Prosky's "rollcall" interventions, but he had an impossibly difficult act to follow.

This is a thoroughly worthwhile purchase for people who might have missed out on this seminal series, first time around. But they should not necessarily expect to have the opportunity to watch the subsequent seasons. What a terrible shame.
