    Wow.....this one completely came out of nowhere for me. A really pleasant surprise. [​IMG]

    I used to watch this wonderful Ian McShane series on A&E Mysteries back in the early 90's - back when A&E was actually worth watching. Glad to see this one finally hitting DVD. I know I'll be picking this one up on release day. Here's hoping that BBC/Warner releases the entire series. [​IMG]

    "- back when A&E was actually worth watching. "

    So very true.

    Lovejoy is a marvelous series and it's about time it arrived on DVD. Highly recommended. Lovejoy is an amiable rouge, less malevolent than the book version, but Ian McShane captured his essence.

    McShane is such a good actor that I'd watched the entire first season of Deadwood and never realized he'd been the star of Lovejoy until I read it in "Entertainment Weekly"!

    Amen to the sentiments about A & E. Now it's just another reality show channel. *shudder*

    I watched Lovejoy way back then too and lamented its absence on home video after. I didn't realize this came out at all until I got an email from BBC America yesterday announcing the release of Season 2. Both sets have gone onto my Amazon wish list and I truly hope that the rest of the seasons are released.
