This review is from: The Sweeney - The Complete Series [Box Set] [DVD] (DVD)
This show is a classic police series and well worth purchasing. It is interesting that in Series 3 the sound effects people creep in with their weird and unnecessary sounds. The beauty of series from this era is that they are free from this nonsense. However, it seems that from about 1976 onward, these sound freaks start polluting the TV shows with a morass of sounds to show off their `versatility'. The Sweeney only suffers a little from this as it is not constant, but the history and gradual development of this irritating phenomenon is interesting until the present day when all dramas (and even documentaries) suffer from this din.
Buy it you will enjoy it despite this.
