I just finished watching the 2nd episode of The Commish. I am too young to really remember the show on TV, but I got it because of Michael Chiklis (The Shield is one of the best shows on TV right now). Anyways, I watched episode 2 and at the end of the episode, a bunch of black men get pulled over and in order to prove that they are not who the cops think they are, they need to sing a song (they are a band headed to a gig). Right when The Commish tells them to sing, it cuts to him telling some cop to give the band a police escort to their gig. Now I assume there was actually some singing (this group may have even been some famous Motown group for all I know), but my guess is that it was cut because of music right's issues. This kind of stuff is really starting to tick me off because it is largely studios and distributors cutting corners to maximize profit, and in the meantime we are given cut episodes and product that is not the same as we remember it (in this case, it doesn't apply to me -- but the cut/editing is really weird for a first time viewing). If this band was unknown it probably wouldn't have cost that much to get the rights, and even if they were somewhat big, it still is only one song. Just wanted to point the cut out to those that we interested in the product. I am enjoying the show thus far -- Chiklis had the talent even back then. My only other complaint is that the transfer after the first episode is less than stellar .. in fact, it is pretty sub par (very similar to the Homicide discs if you have seen those).
