Watching the show on TV is onething, however being able to see it uninterupted makes it a whole new experience. The additional DVD Special Features are a must to see! Never watched the show in first run because what intrest could catching pot smokers, drunks and petty thieves have. Those were my old memories of NIS from my service days! This expands to what is done today and the continuing story lines into very interesting and entertaining viewing!
As far as my husband and myself go, we'd recommend this series to anyone and everyone. This is one of the best among six other series we watch, that we look forward to buying each time a new series comes out. The TV companies need to start getting these DVDs out into the maintstream faster!!! We even watch them over again after about six months time. Getting to know the characters and really enjoying the humor helps create this series.
Watch Seasons 1 and 2 and you'll be hooked on this show! New characters and a new DVD format but as always fine acting, dialogue, and storylines. There is a major cliffhanger at the end of Season 3 that rivals the "WOW!" ending of Season 2 (in my opinion). Already anticipating the release of Season 4 on DVD which I will order as soon as it is announced.
