Product Description

Jarod is a Pretender-a genius whose exceptional intelligence allows him to assume various identities at will, be it doctor, test pilot or lawyer. Taken from his parents at an early age, Jarod was brought up in the Centre, a think-tank facility where he believed his computer-like mind was being used to benefit mankind. But when he learned the simulations he solved were being sold to the highest-bidder no matter what their intent, Jarod escaped. Now on the run, Jarod embarks on a search for his true identity while also attempting to balance out any wrong his simulations have caused by helping people who are as powerless as he once was.

All accounts indicate this release of "The Pretender" on DVD is the best yet. The French fans got Season 1 with no special features...this edition has multiple commentaries and featurettes!! Not that you would need any bonus features to fully appreciate what great value you are getting with this package because all by itself it is good enough! Actors Michael T. Weiss, Andrea Parker, Jon Gries and Patrick Bachau shine in Season 1 of The Pretender. Michael T. Weiss as Jarod is the perfect genius who is on the run, but still manages to find time to help others. Michael's dramatic range is on full display as he slips into a new role for each episode. He's definitely "The Pretender." Andrea Parker (Less than Perfect/ABC) as Miss Parker is perfect as the head of the team who leads the chase for the genius, Jarod. She is explosive, unapologetic, beautiful and dangerous. And yet, you don't know the half of her! You will fall in love with Andrea's smouldering portrayal of Miss Parker. Patrick Bachau as Sydney and Jon Gries as Broots add the perfect elements to balance the tension and drama that surrounds the chase for Jarod, even as the secrets to the Centre's past unfolds in every episode. The Pretender is one of the best series to ever premiere on NBC. If you have never seen it, now is your chance to own it and you will never regret it as you get drawn into the fascinating plot lines and learn more about the characters as the season unfolds.

This show revolves around Jarod, a genius that was kidnapped by an organization known as "The Centre" when he was a child. This organization exploited his genius for their own purposes and financial gains. Later, as an adult, Jarod escapes from "The Centre" and sets out on a mission to help others, through his ability impersonate different jobs and occupations. He also searches to find the family that he was taken from as a child. Miss Parker, Sydney and Broots lead "The Centre's" search for Jarod, hoping to eventually recapture him and return him to "The Centre".
This is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. I am excited that they have finally begun releasing this series on DVD and I can't wait for the next seasons to be released. Excellent show. Interesting, captivating plot and well acted.

I love the Pretender Series, and I was finally able to find Season One on DVD! The discs are good quality, and I'm re-watching the show again.

For those who are not familiar with the series, Jarod is a Pretender: a genius who can literally become anyone he wants to be. He has the ability to feel the emotions and understand the motivations of others, and the genius intellect and skills to create a new identity as a doctor, a lawyer, an FBI agent, a detective, a pool player, a thief, whatever he needs to be in order to right wrongs and bring some bad guys to justice! Yes, he does sound almost like a super hero. It's not as corny as I make it sound. There's plenty of amazing backstory, plot twists and intrigue, witty dialogue, action, and well-rounded, interesting characters.
