Others have posted excellent reviews of this great 80's series, so I'll not rehash the same territory. I would however like to thank VEI, the company responsible for releasing this series. Here's why:
Contains all the music as originally broadcast!
They released all three seasons quickly!
Those who have had the misfortune to purchase other DVD releases of classic "Stephen J. Cannell" series (Hunter, 21 Jump Street, The Greatest Amrican Hero, etc.) will know that Anchor Bay basically -RUINED- these series by altering the music or editing whole scenes out of the show!! Honestly, some episodes have been CHOPPED TO PIECES because Anchor Bay didn't want to pay for the music rights!
VEI has shown that it's not only possible to obtain the music rights, but it's the RIGHT THING TO DO! If they were able to do this for Hardcastle and McCormick, there is NO REASON that Anchor Bay shouldn't have been able to do the same for the other titles!
Do you even realize how lucky we are to have ALL THREE seasons of Hardcastle and McCormick? There are other series, like T.J. Hooker, Night Court, Simon and Simon, (and MANY others), that had MAJOR television runs, and yet the DVD releasing studio REFUSES to release further seasons! Just remember that when a DVD releasing studio makes the statement, "further seasons will not be released because of poor sales", they're actually saying, "sorry, we're just too GREEDY".
VEI has shown that it's not only possible to release ALL SEASONS (quickly), but it's also possible to release them UNEDITED. I will buy ANY future release from VEI without hesitation. Thanks for caring VEI! fans of 80's entertainment (such as myself) truly appreciate it!
Any chance that you can make a deal to re-release the other Cannell titles properly? I'd be happy to throw my Anchor Bay releases into the trash and buy them from you instead!
Anyone else notice that the "Coyote X" starting in season two is actually a different car than in season one? Also, two slightly different versions of the SAME "new" theme song for season two. Check out Mark watching that Bangles video in season two also! :)
