Stairway to Heaven is often unfavorably compared to the original Crow movie, in part because it uses the same characters and in part because, let's face it, that movie is a masterpiece. That said, you can't do the same things in a TV series that you can in a movie. For instance, at the end of the first two hours, there still has to be a plot left and characters still have to have room to grow. In that, Stairway more than succeeds. It creates a whole new world in the Crow mythos, a kind of "what might have been" that just gets better with every episode. The music in this series is great, too. And it's about time it got released on DVD.
