SRP $49.99 1.33:1 DOLBY DIGITAL 2.0 MONO LIONS GATE
 

 

LIONS GATE has released a boxed set featuring the first two seasons of "MOONLIGHTING".  The 6 disc set offers the feature pilot and 23 episodes.  Bruce Willis stars as David Addison, a wisecracking sidekick to Cybil Shepherd as Maddie Hayes.  David gets a job at Maddie's detective agency and sparks, and confrontation ensue. There's plenty of crisp, witty dialogue here and the episodes are generally much more creative than what's on tv today. Sure, some of the "innovative" humorous winks at the audience are used frequently on modern sitcoms and even older ones(Drew Carrey show)but this is one of the first to really offer a laugh "with" the audience rather than just at it!

LIONS GATE has presented the original aspect ratio, 1.33:1. While colors are subdued, as was typical of shows in the '80s, the detail is fine and the image is generally solid.

LIONS GATE has presented a Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. While it's only mono, the fidelity is fine and dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.

There are many extras included here, but fans will enjoy the audio commentaries most. The pilot episode and the Christmas special offer some of the best "inside" commentary for any tv show thus far on dvd!
