Commish-Complete Series (2010)
Before "The Shield" Michael Chiklis was "The Commish"!
The Complete 5 Season Series Finally Available on DVD!
The series that first introduced TV audiences to Michael Chiklis is finally available in its entirety on DVD. Fans of The Commish have been yearning for the release of seasons 3-5 and that day has finally come with this release which includes all 94 episodes on 17 DVDs!
Emmy Winner Michael Chiklis stars as Tony Scali, a no-nonsense police commissioner revered by his officers and community for this unorthodox style and compassionate nature. As a former Brooklyn cop, Tony uses tough and, at times, controversial methods to bring perpetrators to justice in his small town, where solutions to difficult situations often require considerable creativity. From parenthood to politics, from sex crimes to murder cases, one man takes it day-to-day with offbeat humor and street-smart skill.
Editor's NoteAs the brainchild of megaproducer Stephen J. Cannell, the offbeat police drama THE COMMISH (1991-96) starred Michael Chiklis (WIRED) as Tony Scali, a laid-back but dedicated police commissioner based in the (apocryphal) New York City suburb of Eastbridge. Episodes segued back-and-forth between developments on the force, and Tony's experiences at home, where he received emotional support from loving wife Rachel (Theresa Saldana) and preadolescent son David (Kaj-Erik Eriksen). At its outset, THE COMMISH attained distinction for its relaxed, occasionally humorous tone, though over time, the show's emotional intensity began to build, typified by such events as the birth of Tony and Rachel's daughter, the deaths and departures of various subordinate officers, and ultimately, an extremely violent attempt on Tony's life by a hired killer known as The Iceman. This box set contains all 92 episodes of THE COMMISH, spanning five seasons.
