Sledge Hammer! The Complete Series DVD Review

Synopsis: If this is law enforcement, God help us all! Rebel cop, Sledge Hammer (David Rasche) is everyone’s favorite trigger-happy lawman and a one-man crusade against crime. His extreme, unorthodox methods which include, firing warning shots at jaywalkers, dragging suspects around parking lots by his rear bumper until they confess, blasting a building-demolishing bazooka shot at a sniper, and talking to his .44 Magnum have gotten him suspended from the force more times than he can remember… but he gets results! Harrison Page and Anne-Marie Martin co-star in this hilariously deranged lampoon of Dirty Harry. This special collection includes both seasons from Sledge Hammer!, one of the funniest, most notorious series in television history whose rabid cult of fans grows to this day.

Review: If you were around and watching good TV in the 1980s, then you probably remember Sledge Hammer.  The exploits of this over the top violent cop, Sledge, are reveared amongst TV fans as a cult classic!  This is the first time that you can own the complete series (two seasons) together in one set on DVD!

The show was basically a spoof of the overly violent cop dramas of the 1970s-80s with a slightly goofier tone, like Get Smart or Naked Gun.  The show honestly reminds me a bit of Castle with more violence, now that I watch it again after so many decades.  It was a treat to be able to relive and collect this classic show on DVD.
