More 70's TV memories revisited
Verified purchase
As a teenager at the time, I too have fond memories of this 1970's crime series. Produced by Aaron Spelling (TV series 'Charlies Angels', 'Starsky and Hutch' etc) the series introduces us to the crack, handpicked five-man team of the LAPD - The Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (S.W.A.T.) The team is led by LT. Dan 'Hondo' Harelson, (Steve Forrest - 'The Baron') and also includes Robert Urich ('Vegas' TV series) as Officer Jim Street.

The first episode sees Street's patrol partner murdered while on duty, with Hondo's elite team of marksmen soon out to track down the gang responsible. Subsequent storylines see the team facing the likes of terrorism, kidnapping, a jealous sniper, and a time bomb. The performances are good, with the characters sharing a good camaraderie between them - "buddies" of course, but never in a oversentimental way. With some of the strong violence (for the time) apparently contibuting to the cancellation of the series, the stories have a tougher, more grittier feel than some Spelling productions. A pity the series had to end so early as I was really into the characters and stories on first transmission.

The remastered picture quality is OK, as is the sound, there are no subtitles. As another reviewer has correctly observed, this region 1 collection will play on a region 2 DVD player. This 3-disc first series features a total of thirteen, 50-minute episodes to get your teeth into...... Now where is the rest of the series?

Great action packed cop show

I love this type of 70's show so we're half way there
Only watched first episode so far but already hooked and look forward to watching them all over the next few weeks
I barely remember this show as a child so it's all new to me and can recommend it without reservation

S.w.a.t. A great DVD this is. American tv at it's best.took a long time to finally get hold of this, in the end I had to buy a multi region DVD player but well worth it.. It's a must see as a cop programme.
