I purchased the series from Amazon and it arrived yesterday. Looking forward to watching it again. I noticed the packaging was a plastic Book with the discs in individual paper disc envelopes. Mill Creek released Silk Stalkings Seasons 6,7 and 8 the Same way in 2013. Yet, The 2016 Mill Creek Release of Miami Vice (Which I also got from Amazon) is packed in a cardboard box with discs in individual cardboard envelopes. Im guessing the change in packaging was a cost cutting measure?

That seems to be the Mill Creek way. I repackaged both series sets I bought from them, because otherwise the disks get no protection.

Yeah, I’m going to have to do something different. The paper and plastic is extremely flimsy. I think I have some jewel cases I can put the discs in. If I don’t, I’ll get something. I was thinking about something like this.

would it work?

I have done this with several of the giant Mill Creek sets I have. I don't entirely trust the flimsy packaging.

- the original 21 Jump Street
- a Stephen J Cannell compilation set of short lived series
- some scifi film compilation sets


I don't have many Mill Creek sets.

I find it difficult to remove the discs from the envelopes because I try not to tear them. Hopefully, my DVD Jewel cases I ordered will arrive today. I will re package Pacific Blue, Silk Stalkings Season 6-8 and Miami Vice. I dont understand why the DVD Packaging could not have been a better quality. The Blu Ray Releases for Knight Rider (which I Have from Mill Creek) are in more Sturdy packaging. Miami Vice Blu Ray is in the same Packaging. Its as if Mill Creek Treated DVD as the Stepchild. I would have been willing to pay a bit more for packaging that was of better quality

That's how my copy of that Wanted: Dead or Alive all-in-one was as well.

Here’s my solution to the packaging. Problem. Jewel cases for pacific blue and Miami Vice seasons. separated re using Miami Vice disc folders. And original packaging for each as bookends. Same for Silk Stalkings season 6-8 release. No dividing though

It looks like the plastic dvd cases that Redbox used in their dvd rental vending machines.

I am enjoying re watching the Series. When it first Ran on USA Network, I remember it airing on Sunday Nights in 1996 Silk Stalkings was still running and had Tyler Layton and Nick Kokitakis as Price and Rollins. After that They were replaced with Potter and Gunn which turned me off the Series. I remember seeing Pacific Blue For 2 Seasons. Along with the Big Easy Good Cop TV Time for people who weren't Big on Baywatch and Miami Vice during first run

Initially I watched some episodes when it was on network tv. Then it disappeared. (At the time, I didn't know it was picked up by the usa network).

I ended up watching first-run episodes again, when it was Potter + Gunn. At the time, I also taped the reruns during the day and watched them when I got home.

I just finished Pacific Blue. All 5 seasons in order. Too bad it got canceled before the cliffhanger as to who was the father of the baby at the end. I originally thought it had been canceled after 2 years until I saw it on IMDb tv. I thought it was a good series over all. It was weird and Cool at the same time to see the late Stephen J. Cannell make onscreen appearances
