Nash Bridges Here At Last!

"The official DVD release is here, finally!!! After years of patience, waiting diligently for good news, any news, concerning 'Nash Bridges' release on DVD, we can all rest assured that we will have a copy of the first season come October 14th of this year!
First of all, let me just say that 'Nash Bridges' is one of the best police drama series of all time, if not the greatest. What made it great was its ability to fuse action, drama, comedy and heartfelt emotion together into one cohesive package that brought a wonderful hour of entertainment each week to millions of fans. I'm sure most of us NB fans are still scratching our heads over why this show was cancelled after six wonderful seasons, because quite frankly there wasn't anything near as entertaining on TV at the time, nor has there been since, with a few exceptions. It was very unfortunate that we did not get a season finale, let a lone a series finale, as it stands the last episode was sudden and without warning, with many plot threads left unresolved which will be left up to our imagination, but there is a bright side to this magnificient series' untimely demise, which is that the wait until we can see it again from the beginning on our DVD players is just a few months away:) Here's to Nash and Joe, one of the best cop teams ever, long live 'Nash Bridges'!"
Great show, NO FEATURED MUSIC

"This was probably the release I have most waited for as of yet. A fantastic show finally out on DVD, however, the DVD does NOT CONTAIN THE ORIGINAL MUSIC. CBS must not have secured the lisences to use ANY of the original music featured on the show. After watching the pilot episode, "Big Me" by the Foo Fighters and "Please Call Home" by the Allman Brothers have both been replaced by instrumental overdubs of different music. This is one of my favorite shows of all time, and I for one am incredibly disappointed that the DVD's do not contain any of the music featured in the show. Hopefully, from now on, CBS will obtain the lisences to use the rest of the music featured in the other five seasons."
You will not be disappointed with this show

"It's finally here! I have been waiting on this for so long , that its actual release comes as a shock. One thing's for certain, this show is one of the best, if not THE best crime drama ever made. Yes, even better than Miami Vice, Don Johnson's breakout hit show of the 80's. Don Johnson is an incredible actor, and he is at his best on this show, no doubt about it. And Cheech Marin? What else is there to say except that he is funny as usual, but on this show there's something else about him too. With these characters, you actually get emotionally involved in their day to day jobs and lives. It's just a great show, and awesome supporting cast too. It's just unbelievable that it was canceled after 5 great seasons!"
Not uncut, music score different. Watch out.

"Finally, Nash makes it to DVD. The series was so well written, cast, and produced. The Nash character is fun and quirky. The rest of the cast works well and writing is top notch. You get to see a lot of S.F. in scenes. Audio and video is not sweetened or trashed as is done so often on the small screen. Syndication, however, is another animal. USA net cut it up bad enough, WGN went even further and hacked it to shreds. Yuck!
Why we hate syndication in the first place. Naturally, the thought of enjoying the series in its original form was hopeful. Too bad that's not what we got. Some scenes were still edited from their original airing and choppy. The biggest disappointment was replacing all the music scores. It's blatantly obvious in the episode "Vanishing Act" where James Brown music was replaced with some kind of hip hop background poorly dubbed in. Scenes were re edited poorly and jumpy. You might as well watch the syndicated shows. They're free. It's subtly evident in the pilot episode where two Neal Hefti charts were replaced with some kind of weird pseudo jazz music. The scene was where Nash meets Kelly in the bar to discuss their final married moments. Dialog doesn't change but the weird background music is a let down. Totally changes the mood and scene establishment. Doesn't ruin the show but degrades it considerably. If you don't care about those things, you will like the DVD release. The music redux is annoying and the chopping certainly doesn't help. Just don't expect what you originally viewed. It's not there.
