I'm a Michael Chiklist fan so this was a must watch for me. It is actually pretty good but very cheesy and dated. Has a Monk TV show feel to it by the cheesiness and seriousness at times during each season episode Each episode is different just like in Monk too.
The Commish . . . . Lite

"This is nothing more than a simple, no frills compilation of four episodes from the first season of "The Commish." True fans of the series will want to pick up the first two seasons of the series on DVD; but for those who want just a sampling of episodes, this single-disc release is fine. It's an interesting, early look at star Michael Chiklis. His character of "Tony Scali" in this show is far removed from "Vic Mackey" of "The Shield" . . . . . two law enforcement characters that are like night and day.
The presentation from Anchor Bay is nothing exceptional, but gets the job done. Whether the four episodes included are the "best of" is debatable; supposedly, they were selected by series co-creator Stephen J. Cannell. Reviews for the season sets indicate that some episodes on those sets are edited versions. That would also seem to be the case here based on the range of running times for each of the episodes.

"The Commish" is a much better than average series and this DVD will serve as a nice introduction to the show, especially for those viewers like me who had not seen the show during its original broadcast or subsequent reruns. But those familiar with the show will probably want to skip this "introductory" DVD and go straight to the season sets, The Commish - Season 1 and The Commish - Season 2.
