Product Overview

The daily goings-on in the small town of Rome, Wisconsin are definite proof that real life is often stranger than fiction. From the murder of the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz to a student who brings in a severed hand for show-and-tell and a menopausal woman who runs over her husband with a steamroller, Sheriff Jimmy Brock has seen it all. Indeed, behind the tidy picket fences of this quirky little town lie all the same problems and prejudices found in the big city, except in a small town everyone seems to know everyone else's business - or thinks they do!

This six disc collection includes all 22 episodes from Season One of Picket Fences!

Editors Note
Note David E. Kelley has made a career out of creating quirky characters in shows such as ALLY MCBEAL and BOSTON LEGAL, and this early offering from the TV guru is no exception. Tom Skerrit (BROTHERS & SISTERS) and Kathy Baker (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS) won Emmys for their roles as James and Jill Brock, a couple trying to raise a family in middle America. As sheriff in the small Wisconsin town of Rome, James Brock sees strange things that would shock even big-city cops. The town is a haven for the wacky and weird, and no day is ever boring for its residents. PICKET FENCES also featured the talents of Fyvush Finkel (Kelley's BOSTON PUBLIC), Lauren Holly (DUMB AND DUMBER), and Ray Walston (FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH). This release includes the first season in its entirety, including the show's pilot episode.
Reviews
Entertainment Weekly "[Kelley] couldn't have chosen a better canvas for his liberal-leaning politics than Rome, Wis....FENCES feels like 7TH HEAVEN by way of TWIN PEAKS..." -- Grade: A- 06/22/2007 p.57
Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he show naturally mixes crime and medical stories, but always in a gently witty and quirky way." 08/01/2007 p.117
