I don't do many reviews and this is the first on a TV show but ----I love this show!! I had never watched it before and then seen a couple of episodes on the GET TV Channel and immediately went in search of the DVD set. Why can't they make shows like this again? TV from that era did not rely on sex, violence or special affects. The acting, writing and directing are way above anything you see on TV or the big screen of today. These 2 guys have chemistry, timing and you can tell they were having fun doing this show. They did much adlibbing on their own----- and it works. This has become my all time favorite show. There are moments of brilliancy in this show and some of the most touching scenes I have ever watched. Subtle and understated --- you may have to watch the episodes more than once to catch them all. I binged watch the entire series and then went back and watched just the scenes between Brian Keith and Daniel Hugh Kelly several times. I am still watching some of it over every day---yes it is that good. I would also keep a pen and pad handy because there are words of wisdom that you will want to remember such as: In the episode "Ties My Father Sold Me", Mark has tracked down his father who deserted him when he was 5. His father has turned out not to be the father he had hoped to find. Hardcastle tells Mark that he should at least give his father a chance and gives this little pearl of wisdom: "The trouble is people always turn out the way they are instead of the way you want them to be." At the end of this episode after Mark's father runs off again--Hardcastle says "Come on kid--I'll take you to a ball game." They walk off with Hardcastle pattling Mark on shoulder. He is there even if the Mark's father is not. In the episode "Mr. Hardcastle Goes to Washington" it is Mark's turn to dispense with some wisdom as Harcastle is trying to change himself and his image after he has been nominated for the Supreme Court. Mark, in a scene showing his growing maturity and wisdom tells Harcastle "Be hones--not political. Don't be so quick to turn in the pick up truck for a limo. When you go to the biggest party of your life you dance with who brought. Don't Change!" There are so many moments and scenes in this series like these. Brian Keith and Daniel Hugh Kelly are amazing actors. They are so natural that you lose yourself in the watching. You forget about time and surroundings and are just caught up in the story. Much like reading a good book and at the ending you close the book and give a heavy sigh---saying to yourself--"WOW! That was a good read." I say WOW!---This is a great show---from beginning to end. In the episode "Birthday Present Hardcastle is shot and has not been expected to live. Mark in the mean time is forced to shoot and kill a crazy sociopath. He comes to the hospital when Hardcastle regains consciousness. Mark looks traumatized and crushed. He looks shaken and pale. His eyes look as if he has had a hard cry---the kind of cry you hide in the shower to do. I don't know how Daniel Hugh Kelly does this---IT LOOKS SO REAL. After he sits down at the bedside Mark kind of folds in on himself and confesses to the judge: "I killed him----I killed a man judge. It only took one bullet and a 10th of a second. "I ain't never killed nobody before. It feels bad---it feels real bad. It's like I'm somehow worth less." This episode should have received an Emmy nomination---it is excellent from beginning to end. As you progress through the series you begin to see the growing love and respect these two characters have for each other but are reluctant and uncomfortable showing----especially Hardcastle. By the end of the series they have become closer than the blood ties other father and sons have. Near the end of the series is another one of my favorite episodes called "If You Could See What I See". The guest star is Rosemary Clooney---a top grade actress that was made for this part. Mark has hired her as a maid. She keeps having visions of Mark being shot and killed----and her visions always come true. In one scene Mark is helping Millie with the dishes. As they talk Millie asks ?Why do your feelings for hardcastle embarrass you Mark? Mark "They don't---I just don't talk about them much. That's all." At the end of the episode Millie is telling Mark how the judge sat by his side all night in the hospital----"Worse than an expectant father" she says. Then Millie leans over to whisper to Mark "He loves you--- I had to watch this scene several times on slow motion to get that as it is of course not spoken out loud but just mouthed. This show is a perfect show with a perfect ending. It is the kind of show one wishes they could buy a copy of to give to everyone they know. I have found out that there is a book written about this show and how it was created. It includes episode reviews, interviews etc. I have ordered the book but not received it yet. It appears to be worth the purchase and is available on Amazon and you can read the intro to it. It is titled: Hardcastle and McCormick by Deb Ohlin (Author), Cheri deFonteny (Author), Lynn Walker (Author)

This DVD is great. It has old songs/clips from Sesame Street, but my 2 1/2 year old daughter LOVES it. Her favorite is "Jelly Man Kelly". We are both enjoying it :)

This Star Trek movie has it all. Fantastic use of music; great actors playing young versions of iconic characters (the guy doing McCoy was channeling Deforest Kelly), Spectacular space battles, compelling plots and subplots, a semi-plausible method of allowing entirely new adventures for the crew, two Spocks and Kirk chasing anything with a skirt (except Picard in his 'dress' uniform). It also has the gaping holes in logic that come with the territory but make the movie more interesting. I've watched it five times in the first month and it's still great. Buy it and enjoy.

If you like older musicals, this is a great one to have!!! It is of great quality and is a pleasure to watch. I enjoy watching musicals in general and the older ones, especially!!! The singing and dancing are top of the line. If you enjoy Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly...this is a must have for your collection!!!

What a great 30 minute workout. I do both of them and really feel the burn and that I've accomplished a great fat-burning workout. Kelly doesn't mess around. Highly recommended!

Having the black and white and colorized versions both included is great but adding the tv version with MacDonald Carey as Fred is wonderful. Some things are destined to be eternal and this seems to be one of them.
