5.0 out of 5 stars Always pretty, never too gritty 26 Jun. 2012
By Jancal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When you look at police or forensics show nowadays it's as if you are looking at true crime scenes. This stark realism was thankfully missing from the glossy Silk Stalkings series, and made it that much more entertaining and relaxing to watch after a hard day's work. Chris & Rita were good-looking, well-dressed sexy partners who wore Miami Vice pastels and handled cases in beautiful millionaires homes in Palm Beach, Florida. The dialogue was sharp and funny, the side characters interesting, and there were popular-in-the-day celebrity guest stars, some of which are listed below along with their episode titles from this Season 2 DVD set:

DISC ONE

Social Call - Romy Walthall, Ray Stricklyn
The Wild Card - Dennis Cole, Rowdy Roddy Piper
In Too Deep - Melanie Smith, Jim Youngs
Bad Blood - Paul Scherrer, Patrick Fabian

DISC TWO

Hot Rocks - Krista Terreau, Tobin Bell
Scorpio Lover - Edward Albert, Audrey Landers
Love-15 - Carla Borelli, Todd Waring
The Queen is Dead - Dick Gautier, Anthony Herrera

DISC THREE

Irreconcilable Differences - Simone Griffeth, John Bennett Perry
Jasmine - Jamie Rose, Lawrence Tierney
Crush - Jared Martin, Denise Gentile
Was It Good For You Too - Julie St. Claire, John Vargas

DISC FOUR

Dead Weight - Erin Gray, John O'Hurley
Kid Stuff - Andrew Stevens, Elizabeth Burns
Night Games - Lana Clarkson, Rex Smith
Meat Market - Andrea Thompson, Michael Harris

DISC FIVE

Giant Steps - Tracy Scoggins, Victor Bevine
Soul Kiss - Steve Bond, Debbie McLeod
Look the Other Way - Kim Gillingham, Alan Feinstein
Star Signs - Richard Eden, Gerard Christopher

DISC SIX

Voices - John Snyder, Katherine Armstrong
Crime of Love - Gail O'Grady, Jay Acovone

4.0 out of 5 stars Season Two: Hitting Their Stride 4 Aug. 2005
By Henry Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the continuing story of a pair of Palm Beach (Florida) detectives investigating crimes of passion, AKA "sik stalkings". The detectives for the first four seasons are Chris Lorenzo and Rita Lee Lance, played respectively by Rob Estes and Mitzi Kapture. If you're new to "Silk Stalkings" you should really look elsewhere, as the rest of this review assumes you're moderately familiar with the show.

This was the second and last CBS "Crimetime After Prime Time" season before it moved to USA network.

This season nailed the formula "Silk Stalkings" was to use for years to come. The golfing metaphors for sex are a thing of the past, and Rita's brain aneurism is never mentioned again. Mitzi Kapture does a voice-over in most episodes, but it's not the constant presence it was in Season One. While male guest roles continue to have diversity of character, women in guest roles are pretty much either Saints or Sinners, and the Sinners only have two ways to go: Sluts and Sociopaths. Thankfully, the fetish for big 1980's hairdos and hosiery ("silk stockings" -- get it?) has largely disappeared. And of course we still see too many San Diego hillsides to convincingly stand in for the flat land around Palm Beach.

As this was a late-night budget show, we still get grainy video. The intro is unchanged; Mitzi Kapture still appears first in the credits with the big 1980's hair. (Later Rob and Mitzi alternated first and second billing.) Closed captions are new this season. In a budget-constrained show that's heavy on sex it's not surprising to see the occasional lapse in censorship; I counted two accidental nipple exposures (down from three in Season One). This season also marked the first use of blur to censor nudity -- it's cheaper to just shoot and blur later than it is to set up careful camera angles to keep things out of sight.

Ben Vereen as Capt. Hutchinson only appears in two episodes. In the others he's been replaced by Robert Gossett as Lt. Hudson. Charlie Brill appears twice this season as "Myron the Mattress King", and his wife Mitzi McCall plays Myron's wife. Starting the next season Charlie Brill replaces Hutchinson and Hudson as the Homicide Division head, and Mitzi McCall again plays his wife.

Anchor Bay screwed up this DVD quite a bit. There are 8 minutes missing from episode "Dead Weight" (the first of Erin Gray's two guest appearances on the show); you don't get to see the denouement at all.

Additionally, during the 55 second intro after the disc loads (FBI warning, Anchor Bay logo, Stephen J. Cannell Productions Logo, and an animated credits sequence before the menu appears) the disc disables

- FF

- reverse

- chapter forward

- menu

- top menu

- search

You *must* watch the full 55 seconds each and every time you load a disc. Bleah!

Also during play there is no

- search by chapter

- search by time

There are no additional chapter stops; just 4 for the 4 acts of each show. This means you can't skip past the credits except by fast forwarding.

Episode order in this set is problematic. For one thing, this "Season Two" collection starts with the third episode of the year (the first two were at the end of the "Season One" DVD set), and includes the first show of Season Three. Episode 2.19, "Star Signs" is misplaced at the end of disc 5 instead of at its beginning. But Anchor Bay isn't the only culprit here. In the original play order coroner Noriko Weinstein first showed up in episode 2.11, "Irreconcilable Differences", but there's an introduction scene for her TEN episodes later (ELEVEN in the Anchor Bay order)!

Recurring roles include

- William Anton as ADA George Donovan

- Dennis Paladino as mobster Donnie "Dogs" DiBarto

- Marie Marshall as photographer Solonge

- John Byner as con artist Cotton Dunn

- Lucy Lin as coroner Noriko Weinstein

Notable guest stars for this collection are Romy Windsor, Roddy Piper, Salli Richardson, Luca Bercovici, Tobin Bell, Edward Albert, Audrey Landers, Josie Bissett, Henry Darrow, Jamie Rose, Erin Gray, John Laughlin, Charlie Brill and Mitzi McCall, Maddie Corman, Andrew Stevens, Barbara Niven, Charlie Callas, Andrea Thompson, Tracy Scoggins, Casey Sander, Gail O'Grady, and Jay Acovone.

The extras for this DVD set are reminiscences by Stephen J. Cannell and Mike Post about their lives and careers, mostly NOT about "Silk Stalkings". There's a single SS script and a few Chris & Rita stills from the show.

The production values still reflect the cheap budget, but the guest actors are a bit more competent this season. Mitzi and Rob are starting to get really comfortable in their roles. So don't let the bad Anchor Bay treatment keep you from collecting this set. It's good TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I even remember 16 Aug. 2007
By techtime - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
One more t.v. series I came across while looking on Amazon that I added to my Wish List and received as a birthday present. I was skeptical of my taste in the early 90s vs. today. I remember thinking it was a kind of a newer, maybe shallower Miami Vice-style, that was pretty risqué for regular cable t.v. I used to watch it sporadically on USA late at night, but probably never saw two episodes in a row.

My fiancée and I watched the first episode with my parents. None of us really got into it and I felt a little disappointed. A little while later (days? a week?) my fiancée and I were looking for something to watch that wasn't too long, so we gave it another whirl. After the second episode we were hooked and preceded to watch a bunch, one after another. We cruised through the First Season way too fast that I even found myself watching the Extras! To make a long story short, we're about half way through the Fifth Season now and dread the inevitable, that this is the last season out on DVD.

Yes, there is 90s cheese, florescent outfits that we can't believe we thought were cool, some questionable hairdos, swimsuits, only large-chested women always seemingly getting out of a pool at the crime scene wearing a thong bikini, every episode opens with a sex scene that ends in someone's death, and the list goes on and on. However, we are totally hooked and love every episode and season! It's part romantic comedy, part t.v. detective series drama. I loved Miami Vice, but usually didn't find myself laughing whereas with Silk we are laughing during every episode and feeling good at the end of them. There also is very little blood and gore. You get the idea of what happened, but often see no blood when someone is killed. The chemistry between Chris and Rita as well as them and the others characters is great. I would say our only disappointment is you get attached to a few characters that all of the sudden never show up again in an episode (some of the coroners, Cotton, etc.). Also, they are kind of bad about reusing characters that had such strong parts in episodes that it is sometimes weird to see them again in a different episode as someone different. All in all, 5-Stars!
4.0 out of 5 stars As Usual 11 May 2014

being a 'fan of the author' I don't expect any drastic changes in his writing style, or an increase in the amount of actual violence that is shown in detail, as one needs to follow the story line and the conversation and anything not actually shown, in detail, is always discussed in verbal details. thus the author sells a complete story and not a bunch of period fights, murders, or violence in great detail. i
3.0 out of 5 stars Lot of flesh in expensive Lingerie 2 Jan. 2015

All flash and flesh all the story lines involve rich bored people that commit the same crime over and over. The detectives are stereotypes of the bold and the beautiful just one step away each episode from giving in to their own fleshly thinking.
