5.0 out of 5 stars This show has it all!, 19 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vegas: First Season 1 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
To be honest, growing up in UK i hadn;t heard of Vega$ and only really stumbled across it recently, but if you like shows like Rockford, Starsky & Hutch, & Hunter, then you'll lover this. It's nothing ground breaking in terms of stories & themes, with all the regualar actors playing the baddies, but what Vega$ has got that makes its so good is the backdrop of 1970's Las Vegas. Today we are all used to the stock footage of Vegas hotels & lights, but here we see the still developing strip in day light, mixed in with the very famous landmarks. Added to that is the fantasic Robert Ulrich, as PI Dan Tanner, he is the kinda guy you'd want to be when you were a kid, hes smooth, kind, clever, and of course good with the ladies. Finally you have a great on screen relationship between Tanner and Slick, slick being the ex gangster turned hotel owner, played by Tony Curtis, who keeps Dan on a retainer. The screen lights up when the pair are togather, but Ulrich's like-ability steals the show.

It's a real pain the season has been split over two volumes, and is only out as region 1, but that aside its a visual feast.

The best deal here is to wait till it comes out as a complete season just like "The Untouchables" did, I waited and its fab to buy a complete season, I used to watch "Vegas when I was a lad and I have been longing for this to come out its a great little show but I will wait as the company that put this out is just miking for Bigger proffits so Just be patient and wait it comes out in a complete season, will soon come round
