Format: DVD
As advertised the 5 disc contains all 24 episode including the 2 part pilot version. I was very apprehensive about the quality as they would have to use a great deal of compression to fit that much video on to 5 discs. But I was very pleased, as I checked each disc the quality is much better than I expected! Yes there is a small amount of artifacting but very little, they did a very good compression job for 5 eps. per disc.
The color looks good and accurate, the print or source material is totally clean and the picture is nice and sharp and clear.
The sound is in true stereo!!! Has most of the original music is intact -All the songs are the original up till the last 2 episodes of season one, from then on all original songs (NOT the theme or background effect music they are all original and intact) were replaced with new dubbed material , they did in my opinion a good job, and it seemed to fit nicely with the episodes - they might have had licensing problems - which might have delayed the series from being released
The only problem I have encountered is there are some problems with motion. It has a look of a PAL disc converted to NTSC - the motion at times seem unnatural and not fluid - this may be a result of the rendering or capturing process that was not done correctly.
When you load each disc there is a disclaimer That anomalies may be present due to source material.
I wouldn't be too concerned about the motion problem, it is slight and you notice it mostly when the camera is panning a moving shot, or when people are walking in the scene.
If you liked the show you will not be disappointed with the set and it is a very good quality product.
Yes it could have been slightly better, but it could have been much, much worse. Im very Happy with the DVD set - and it's great to see the show again with a nice clean picture - and stereo sound!
Go ahead and order it - Im very picky about my reviews and this set is thumbs up!

I've waited a long time for Stingray - the complete series to come out on DVD. My old VHS tapes are so thin in spots, I was scared to play them any more. So for this series gift, I give Stephen J. Cannell 5 stars!

Stingray is the story of a dark mysterious stranger, who drives a super cool 1965 Black Corvette Stingray. Just call him "Ray" - a war veteran, a secret government operative, a teenage vigilante - who really knows for sure? Accepting no cash, he barters his seemingly unending bank of skills and plethora of abilities, to strangers in need, to be paid in kind in the future.

Having only two regular characters, Ray and his classic car, episode ideas were fresh, inventive and varied. Story lines ran the gamut of drug dealers, psychopaths, the price of war, minorities needing a voice, unsolved murders, greed, etc. - you name it, Stingray had it. The continuity of having some of his "clients" come back and repay their favors was a bonus to the regular viewer.

Technically the series has some really cool quick cut camera action. Awesome sound tracks and almost mini music videos, thanks to Mike Post and Pete Carpenter. The directors and photographers worked to achieve a real dark edgy feel. The three filming locations; L.A., Calgary and Vancouver gave a real road trip feel to Ray's adventures.

The heart of the series is the way Nick Mancuso plays "Ray". He is vulnerable and tortured, yet a force no bad guy in his right mind should dare clash with. The quiet angsty moments, when we get in close and get to see the real "Ray" are my favorites - Mr. Mancuso's acting style is subtle and engaging. (Reference S2 episode "The first time is forever.")I met Mr. Mancuso in Calgary in 1987, and he was a very nice man.

From series creator Stephen J. Cannell comes one of my favorite television shows of all time "Stingray". This series had it all in my opinion and it got cancelled way too soon. Former intelligence specialist "Stingray" or Ray as he's called is in the business of helping people out of sticky situations. Ray drove a 1965 Corvette Stingray, he was highly skilled in weapons and hand to hand combat and as a former intelligence specialist he could hack into any computer database. The only way to contact him is through a classified add in the newspaper and clients must agree to his terms or he won't meet them. Ray is a specialist and the best at what he does and he can assume the persona of anyone at anytime and make it all seem believable. Ray provides a service to those in need and when the job is done he tells them that they simply owe him a favor. The favor, Ray's form of payment for his expert help is to be repaid when the time comes and those he has helped cannot refuse him. "Stingray" benefited from great scripts, solid acting and solid character development each week and it's a shame it ended so soon.

"Stingray" the complete series is presented for the first time on DVD in this amazing five disc set. All 24 episodes of the 1986-87 TV series including the two part pilot episode are included for your viewing enjoyment. There is a disclaimer that comes on when each disc is inserted warning of certain anomalies in the quality. I'm not sure why it's on all the discs because other than the pilot episode the quality in my opinion is excellent. You can play the episodes individually or use the play all feature. The video transfers are crisp and clean and the colors are vibrant and sharp. The audio is really good and the opening theme song from Mike Post and the 80's style soundtrack is awesome.
