Wiseguy: The Collector's Edition DVD Review

Wiseguy: The Collector's Edition DVD Review



Synopsis: His first wrong move will be his last - 67 Episode Set - Including 3 Unaired, Never Released Episodes! 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 4 season run on 13 DVDs! Also included are 3 unaired, never before seen episodes from the show's final season. 

How does a deep-cover operative keep his sanity and morality intact when the criminal lifestyle he's sworn to bring down from within is more compelling than his own? Federal Agent Vincent Terranova (Ken Wahl) is plagued by the question in this innovative take on 80s cop dramas. Created by veteran hit producer Stephen J. Cannell, Wiseguy veers from traditional 'bad guy of the week' police procedural by breaking the drama into multi-episode story arcs that followed an Organized Crimes Bureau case - and its charismatic criminal suspects - to its logical conclusion. No matter the cost to criminal, victim, or cop.

Review: Mill Creek had previously released the complete first season of this 1980s cop thriller to DVD.  Now, they jump right ahead by giving us a full collector's edition release.  This represents all four seasons of the show..a complete series DVD release!  Now, this is what I'm talkin' about!  

Wiseguy was classic mobster drama on television.  It entertained far before the Sopranos broke their ground on HBO.  This was the first great gangster-era show.  The complete series collection doesn't include any extras to speak of, but none are needed.  This set you can find for around $35 online, which is a steal!  We highly recommend!

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
