"I was annoyed when this company cancel the second season of BL Stryker. I had just bought and seen B.L. Stryker - The Complete First Season and wanted to finish my collection. I asked friends who had VHS copies. So i watched the complete second season from their VHS copies.
Now, I know the business of DVD are popular, but to cancel to the second season of a DVD release to put out a complete set is a moot point. From what I read, this complete collection has all the episodes
After viewing the all of the second season episode, i know that this complete collection is as good as the first season..in someways better. The acting is more crisp. Burt is Burt and it shows. The mysteries are good. And Ossie Davis's acting had never been better.
As in the first collection, there are NO EXTRAS, just the episodes uncut and cleaned up.
So I am buying it full collection knowing all well and good that this show is good television..now the hard question, who wants my used copy of season one?

"There is always a chance that a Studio can pull the plug on a DVD release at any time and we the fans will always be at their mercy. After purchasing "B.L. Stryker" season one on DVD I was completely disappointed that Arts Alliance America pulled the plug on the season two release and offered no reason for their actions.
After learning that the season two set I had on pre-order from Amazon was not going to be available I contacted Arts Alliance America immediately and I was reassured that a complete series DVD set was being produced. I can't tell you how relieved I was to find out that I would have the opportunity to collect the remaining episodes of this great 90's P.I show starring Burt Reynolds.
Burt Reynolds first got his start in television back in 1959 in an episode of "M Squad" and after playing numerous characters on TV he finally branched out into movies where he became a leading man in Hollywood and a household name. After a lengthy hiatus from television Burt Reynolds made his triumphant return to TV in 1989-90 with the P.I. series B. L. Stryker. Just like William Shatner in T. J. Hooker, B. L. Stryker would be the vehicle that would resurrect Burt's career in television and he hasn't stopped since.
Former New Orleans detective B.L. Stryker returns to Florida and becomes a private investigator due to some unfortunate circumstances. Now you can join him in all 12 thrilling episodes for the first time ever on DVD. Either the original prints were in excellent condition to begin with or Arts Alliance America did an amazing job of cleaning them up for this DVD release. In my opinion this show has never looked better! The video transfers are crisp and clean and look like they were filmed yesterday. The sound is really good and it sounds great on my sound system. All 12 episodes can be found in this 7 single sided disc set complete with great artwork and packaging from Arts Alliance America. Bonus Features include: Two Original shooting scripts as printable PDF s.
