5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY ! my most wanted tv dvd of the last 10 years !, 8 Dec 2007
This review is from: The Equalizer: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
This is a long overdue release as far as i am concerned of one of the best,if not THE best tv show of the 1980s.

I was only a child when this was shown firstly on ITV here in the UK but i never missed an episode when they were shown.

Ever since dvds came out this was the series I Wanted in my collection with there being 4 seasons made a total of 88 episodes in all.

Robert Mccall - the character brilliantly played by Edward woodward is a loner living in New York city , who's trying to overcome demons from his past working for
"The Company" or CIA, by helping ordinary people who are in trouble for whatever reason , and have nowhere else to turn to who contact him via reading his ad in the newspaper.

He also has friends from his past who he calls on to help him on his various missions to overcome the bad guys ,and solve the problems his clients have faced.

each episode is one story , and throughout the entire seasons 1-4 there are only few duff episodes - although they are only slightly less enjoyable.

I was beginning to think this show would never be released with near enough every other 80's tv show available ie magnum ,miami vice,a -team ,knight rider etc , but with The Equalizer movie being released in the future it was inevitable the show would appear at some point.

All in all a great show that was prematurely cancelled by CBS after only the 4 seasons , such a pity it didnt run for 2 or 3 more seasons.
and i cant wait to buy them all on dvd or hd-dvd.

The series was cancelled due ill health on Edward woodward, there was talks of carrying it on with another star in place but it never happened!
