"In July 2002, NBC aired She Spies starring Natasha Henstridge from Spices as well as 2 newcomers. After 3 airings on NBC, She Spies became a hit so they decided to run the show into syndication which began on the weekend of Sept. 30, 2002 and lasted for 2 seasons before getting uncerimoniusly cancelled in Sept 2004 and ran in repeats for the remainder of the 2004-05 season before getting off the air the week of 9/10-9/11/05. Anyway this show is one of the best that got robbed of a longer run. Anyway here are the episodes that will be on the DVD set.

There would be one other season before the show got canned and this and the 2nd season would be repeated for 04/05 season. But It's a great show that should be at least made into a movie."
Get the first season, but skip the second season

"The first season of She Spies was a very entertaining, off-the-wall comedy. Think "Naked Gun" meets "Charlies Angels". The show drastically shifted gears for the second season, though (due to poor ratings perhaps) and attempted to be a straightforward action show. It just didn't work. Get the first season set and enjoy some good laughs and eye-candy."
Carlos Added Wonderful Light to the Show

"Season One of She Spies was wonderful. It had humor, clever wit, double meanings to scenes and to the dialog, and it had one of the most brilliant comedy actors for the girls to play off, Carlos Jacott. Carlos was in all three of Joss Whedon's TV series, Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, one of only four people to do so. When you see his scope in She Spies you might understand why the brilliant Mr. Whedon used him so diligently. Natasha and Natashia and Kristen (how can anyone not love Kristen Miller!?) are also great, their martial arts are actually somewhat functional, and the show is just lots of fun. Dummies need not buy it: they won't get the humor. Skip season two, which lacked Carlos Jacott. Cameron Daddo added exactly nothing, and the show became dull in the sense it was commonplace, never achieving the same heights of wit seen in this season one set. However, this reviewer, who is a bit hard of hearing, sorely misses the text overlays (subtitles) that were on TV. Buy it and enjoy a fun ride. It's absolutely delightful."
Episodes on DVD have been slightly edited...

"I loved this show. However, I am disappointed by the new dvd release. heres why:
On television, before most of the commercial breaks, the image turned into a still, then transformed into a telescope sight.
At the end of the commercial break, the same thing happened but in reverse.
The new dvds are missing these bumpers. The show fades out rather quickly then fades in just as quickly.
This causes both truncation in video and music content.
During its original run, the telescope transitions were not at every commerical break, but at most of them.
Shame on MGM for cutting this episodes.
If you can live without this slight alteration, get the set. the show is fun and the girls are quite fetching."
