Product Description

For the first time ever, the complete series of Steven Bochco’s landmark drama Hill Street Blues has arrived on DVD. Originally broadcast on NBC from 1981 to 1987, these 146 episodes represent compelling and groundbreaking television at its finest.


’Let s be careful out there, ’ advises Sgt. Esterhaus every morning at roll call. And as the officers and detectives at the Hill Street station house patrol their city’s streets, they must indeed maintain a careful balance between serving their citizens and inciting hostility from criminal elements. Yet as dangerous as their precinct is, the men and women of Hill Street often find that their biggest battles involve protecting themselves from the Public Defender’s office, self-serving bureaucrats and each other.


An incredible ensemble cast (including Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz, Dennis Franz and Betty Thomas) and sharp, layered writing helped make Hill Street Blues the most acclaimed and influential series of its day. The winner of 26 Emmy Awards (including four for Outstanding Drama Series) and a mainstay on any roll call of the greatest television shows of all time, Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series is unquestionably a must-have for any fan of engrossing and classic television.

It's so unfair when people post reviews on a product's page that aren't even about the product itself.
This is a great TV show and from a small studio in Canada, but customers are being mislead by angry people rating something that is completely separate from this series.

This is one of the greatest shows of all time and has great character development, realistic plots, and talent.

Daniel J. Travanti did a wonderful job of this 1980's series. The stories of police work and the personal lives of each policeman/woman together in each episode. Budgets for series was not much in those days, but he pulled off a very entertaining series. I would say that this series is for 18+. I got a kick out of only 3 police cars, not too many would notice as it was artfully covered up.

The reason for three stars is related to the quality of the DVD sets shipped. I had the first set replaced because a number of the disks froze, skipped, lost audio, etc. Amazon was good on promptly replacing the set. Sadly, the second set suffered from the same problems. I was offered a 25% reduction in the price if I kept the set or return it for full credit.

The disks that work seem to be of very high quality. They seem to be remastered with sharp, clear video. The series itself is a seminal achievement in network television which paved the way for many fine productions (mostly on cable).

I estimate that only about 80% of the disks are viewable. A shame indeed

The video and audio quality of this box set are superb. The cases are nicely laid out and include a brief summary of every single episode. The introductory essay is also extremely well written and informative. Unlike a lot of older TV series, Hill Street Blues stands the test of time really well. If only it were in the 16:9 aspect ratio! :-)

I was so happy to finally find this show on dvd. I watched it every night in a row until I had watched the complete series. It was as good as I remembered! It was hilarious to see the fashions they were wearing and the cars they used...the "high" speed chases. But I love it.

One of the greatest TV series of the 1980's is finally available in a complete package. After several years of only having the first two seasons available, this new release has every episode in the 7 year run. It was great to see all these episodes once again and to enjoy this fine DVD set.

DVD's are in excellent condition. Nice to "revisit" the old shows that had great plots and to watch all the familiar characters once again.
