Excellent
Verified purchase
Growing up this was a favorite series and now I can see the whole series in Blu-ray quality. The episodes are bright and very detailed with great colors. Although the series is often repeated on television, the Blu-ray quality is considerably better than anything I have seen shown on the television. The case contains 17 discs which is great value for money.

Quality - 1970s and the Cars make the show!
Verified purchase
This bluray of The Professionals is brilliant.
The picture quality is excellent- bringing it up to date. One would think this was a period piece filmed in 2020 as the quality in good even in 4.3. But what makes it even better is seeing all the cars and the paintwork on them. Originally filmed in 1977-1981 with the cars of the time and fashion in clothes etc, it might be just part of the show at the time, but makes it all seem very real now as the digitally remastered quality brings it all to life.
Period pieces always try to recreate something but sometimes can lack the reality of it- but this is a time piece that ticks all the boxes and also brings us right back to that period in the late 70s.

Very good - but the discs are extremely hard to get out of the case!
Verified purchase
This is a a 17 disc monster - picture quality is good and you can clearly see the benefits of the 16mm film restoration. For me though, the packaging is a disaster. No booklet, and the discs are so difficult to get out of their holders, you are talking finger nail breaking and cursing stuff ! Mine also had a split in the plastic damaging some of the artwork, not great - but I really cannot be sending every single thing back to Amazon, so am living with that.

Legendary show, horrible Blu-ray package!
Verified purchase
This disc package was advertised (not on Amazon, but elsewhere) as being region-free (A, B, C) and it says so on the back of the case. I purchased the set from Amazon. I live in the US and none of the discs would play on my region-free Blu-ray player, which has played Blu-rays and DVDs from around the world. It's mutli-format (Blu and DVD) so I tried to play them in my regular DVD player, and still no dice. For $75.00 US, I expected a bit more for my money. Amazon, please advise. Thank you.

Gritty storyline not for the PC brigade
Verified purchase
I was very keen to see this episode as it is the only one that I have never seen before.
I think that it has never been shown on British television. The acting is of a very good standard and the racially charged storyline is very gritty.
Bodie has racist attitudes and when he is stabbed by a man who is black this reinforced them.But after receiving very good treatment by a black doctor and a very caring black nurse he has a change of heart.

Class Act

So great to see the lads remastered and in full HD. And so enjoyable to watch without crappy adverts. A show free of PC nonsense with no pampered male and female ham actors running around that are not even convincing in the roles they are cast in. Everything is such dross these days with media whores all over the TV Movies and Music, I am reverting back to programming I know I love and the professionals are top of the tree. Male only TV made for real men . We are not represented in anything these days so we must go back in time before the western world caved in to ivory tower, wishy washy bollocks. Bodie and Doyle live on inside. Also the theme tune with that crazy wah wah guitar is just magic. Best theme tune ever broadcast. If you are sick of all the saturated rubbish that is all consuming these days, then buy and watch this. You won’t be disappointed, CI5 rule!

Very good Transfer and Restoration ...
Verified purchase
Very Happy to have received this boxset, i must praise the quality of the restoration of all those episodes .It is a very impressive job and i must say that they all look so clear and hard to believe they were made so long ago ...
The only downfall of this is the packaging , flimsy and they could have printed a booklet and a listing of all the episodes ...

Great to watch again especially with the remastered picture, would have expected a better case to keep all 17 discs in as very difficult to get in & out. Would have preferred smaller cases for each individual series
