Cool. I will probably buy this one. I remember when it aired, and really liked the show.
It is great to see that this obscure, but very funny show is receiving such nice treatment. Anchor Bay is really becoming a strong company for TV releases, though they really need to start using close captions!
I heard that if sales are strong enough there might even be a Sledge Hammer! movie in the future. The concept might make an even better movie than a TV series, so fans should definitely buy lots of copies.
Sweet! *deletes SH episodes from computer*
This show is absolutely hilarious! I will be picking it up ASAP... nice to see it getting good reviews.
Hey, it worked for Police Squad. The only thing I worry about is the age of the actors. Of course, if they choose to recast most of the roles like they did in The Naked Gun, that's a non-issue.
Man, I had a DVD buying bonanza today, having purchased "Sledge Hammer!", "V", and "Knight Rider"...my wallet is killing me!
Anyway, I just finished watching the "Sledge" extras, and boy, was that a treat! This is one of the nicest DVD sets I have ever seen; my thanks to Anchor Bay, Alan Spencer, and everyone involved. The packaging is unique, in that it does not have a slipcover or anything, but rather is like a hardcover book with "pages" inside, each one holding a disc. The booklet that comes with had lots of great information and nostalgia, and was the perfect complement to the 30-minute retrospective, which featured all of the actors glowing about what a great show it was and how much fun they had working on it. Ann-Marie Martin still looks absolutely amazing, too, and the others have aged pretty mildly. The set also features network promos, the electronic press kit, lots of photos, DVD-rom content, and audio commentaries, all for the bargain price of $25 or so where I bought it...
All Hammerheads need to do themselves a favor and go buy this today; trust me, I know what I'm saying!
Have you listened to Spencer's commentary tracks yet? So far I watched the first two, and I was laughing my ass off the whole time! Absolutely hilarious.
It's been years since I saw Sledge Hammer! on TV (I was just a kid!). Judging from the consensus so far, I take it that if you enjoy Get Smart or Police Squad! you'll like Sledge Hammer!? Yikes, more TV on DVD I'll probably end up buying!
Got it, love it, now when will they put out the Second season?!:?
And yes, the few commentaries are hilarious, he really loved making these, you can tell...
In a very cinema verite moment, an earthquake occurrs during the recording the recording of the commentary on the last episode of Season 1.
