The Very Best of Hill Street Blues

New Video; $59.95 for four-volume set
Director: Steven Bochco
Cast: Vernonica Hamel, Daniel J. Travanti and Michael Conrad

This gritty cop drama ruled the tube and made TV history with its handheld cameras, crisscrossing story lines and brutally human characters. The box-set captures the creme de la creme of the show, from 1981-87, including the pilot and last episode, to remind us that primetime was touching long before ER.
