Description du produit

Description du produit

The Hill Street Blues - Series 1 DVD contains all episodes from the first series of the ground-breaking TV cop show from legendary producer/writer Steven Bochco. One of the most innovative and critically-acclaimed series of its time, Hill Street Blues ran from 1981 to 1986 and has been influential in shaping later cop shows such as "NYPD Blue" and "L.A. Law". Set in a fictional locale patterned after Chicago, it tells the story of an overworked, under-staffed police precinct and provides a realistic view of the personal and work lives of its characters, which occupy every rung of the hierarchical ladder. Throughout the series, Captain Frank Furillo juggles the delicate balancing act of protecting the jurisdiction's law-abiding citizens, without inciting the local gangs and criminal elements, which are openly hostile to any police presence. As dangerous as his inner-city neighbourhood may be, however, Furillo's biggest battles often involve protecting his own cops from the Public Defender's Office, self-serving bureaucrats, and even each other.


'Let's be careful out there.' So ends each roll-call session at the Hill Street station house. In Hill Street Blues – Series 1 the action gets off to a flying start with Precinct Captain Frank Furillo having to defuse a hostage crisis. The rest of the season keeps up the pace, as Officer Larue battles a drinking problem, Sgt. Esterhaus questions his upcoming marriage, and Furillo finds his chances for promotion compromised by a city councilman's involvement in a murder.

Created by Steven Bochco and one of television's most influential series, Hill Street Blues was not your father's cop show. The Emmy-winning pilot episode, "Hill Street Station," immediately established the series as less a police procedural than an up-close and personal "interface with the police experience." To establish gritty, documentary-like realism, the show featured sequences, such as the pre-credit roll call, that were filmed with a hand-held camera. There was chaotic, overlapping dialogue. There were sudden, shocking bursts of violence that claimed popular characters. Story lines were not wrapped up at the end of the hour, but instead, unfolded serially throughout the season. It's no wonder that Hill Street, while championed by most critics, was initially not embraced by viewers. It was, in the beginning, one of television's lowest rated shows, its case not helped by NBC's criminal practice of juggling it in its primetime schedule). But there is justice in Hollywood. Hill Street Blues won the Emmy for best drama in its first season. Also honored were several members of the ensemble, including Daniel J. Travanti as the compassionate and incorruptible Precinct Capt. Frank Furillo, Michael Conrad as the avuncular Sgt. Phil Esterhaus (whose cautionary, "Let's be careful out there," became the show's pop culture signature), and Barbara Babcock as the wildly sexual Grace Gardner, who rocks Esterhaus's world (particularly in the episode that earned her statuette, "Fecund Hand Rose").

There were no big stars on Hill Street Blues (or, for that matter, no little stars, as one of the cast members jokes during a near-hour-long reunion featurette included as a bonus feature on this three double-sided disc set). Each was an indelible character, among them Charles Haid as cowboy cop Andy Renko, Veronica Hammel as sexy public defender Joyce Davenport, Bruce Weitz as the untamed, animalistic Belker, Keil Martin as LaRue, whose descent into alcoholism is one of the season's most compelling dramatic arcs, and James Sikking as the gung-ho Howard Hunter. Once daring, Hill Street Blues seems almost quaint today, with none of the graphic sex or language that scandalized NYPD Blue (in one episode, a captured cat burglar, portrayed by a pre-L.A. Law Michael Tucker, makes a reference to "wolf pee-pee"). The ethnic portrayals, too, are not exactly nuanced. But the human dramas at the heart of Hill Street still make for arresting television. --Donald Liebenson
