Product Overview

Now, in his second year at Carver High, he realizes he's become more than just a basketball coach. He's the person his players can turn to when things go wrong at home, or when things get tough out on the street. Clashes still arise highlighting the differences between the world Coach Reeves knows and the tough neighborhoods where his players live, but ultimately the bond between coach and player is strengthened and the daily hardships they face become a true learning experience for all.

Editors Note
Note Created by producer Bruce Paltro (ST. ELSEWHERE) in the late 1970s, THE WHITE SHADOW refers to newly sidelined Chicago Bulls player Ken Reeves (Ken Howard), whose injuries have forced him into retirement. He takes a job at a rough, mixed-race inner city school as a basketball coach, and acquires an eclectic group of charges that he guides through many trials and tribulations. The heartwarming but street-smart saga addressed problems of racism, drugs, gangs, class, homosexuality, and learning disabilities, while Reeves also had to deal with the vice principal (Sybil Buchanan) who didn't much like his methods. This collection includes the entire second season of the show.

Review Although many of the episodes are entirely formulaic and frequently rather predictable, there's a rough-hewn toughness to the program that indicates a bold and sincere effort beneath the surface. Executive producer Bruce Paltrow (yes, the late father of Ms. Gwyneth) was clearly interested in tackling some hot-button issues, and The White Shadow did not shy away from stories full of anger, intolerance, and racism. The messages were always kept on a "TV-safe" level, but many of them were also pretty daring.

Brendan Babish, DVD Verdict Ken Howard is so good in The White Shadow, it's hard to understand why he never went on to major stardom.
