This Stephen J. Cannell cult favorite series follows homicide detectives Rita Lance (Mitzi Kapture) and Chris Lorenzo (Rob Estes) as they investigate “Silk Stalkings,” or sexually motivated murders. The investigations are laced with lace and spiced with innuendo as Palm Beach’s finest delve into the steamy underbelly of high society.

This action-packed, Emmy®-nominated drama enjoyed a loyal following during its run on the USA network from 1991-1999.

THE COMMISH – Season one

The series that launched the career of Michael Chiklis, who is best known for his hard-hitting character in TV’s The Shield, is a different type of cop show where crimes are solved with compassion and intelligence instead of ruthless violence.

Chiklis stars as Tony Scali, a no-nonsense police commissioner revered by his officers and community for this unorthodox style and compassionate nature. As a former Brooklyn cop, Tony uses tough and at times controversial methods to bring perpetrators to justice in his small town, where solutions to difficult situations often require considerable creativity. From parenthood to politics, from sex crimes to murder cases, one man takes it day-to-day with offbeat humor and street-smart skill.

WISEGUY – The Collector’s Set

Long before Donnie Brasco brought similar drama to the big screen, Golden Globe® winner Ken Wahl brought charisma, credibility and chutzpah to his small-screen role as Vincent Terranova, a handsome 30-year-old agent with the FBI’s Organized Crime Bureau.

The special Collector’s Set presents 67 episodes that span the series’ highly successful four-season-run on 13 DVDs! Also included are three unaired, never before seen episodes from the show’s final season.

Guest stars include Kevin Spacey, Michael Chiklis, Tim Curry, Jerry Lewis and David Strathairn

MSRP: $44.98

Note: As these are bargin priced releases, much of the original music is missing. Even on regular DVD releases, music substitution is not uncommon (See season one of WKRP).
