Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season Blu-ray cover

 

Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season  [Blu-ray]

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/15/17

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

This is a fun cop show. If you like high energy shows like "Hawaii Five-0" or NCIS that have lots of action and some comedy, and you don't have to think too hard while you watch, this is your kind of show.

Damon Wayans (Roger) is always awesome, and he's well cast here as the senior partner who has to put up with the crazy younger guy. He does drama and comedy equally well.  Clayne Crawford (Martin) is a real find. He reminds me of Heath Ledger.  If you loved the "Lethal Weapon" movies, then this series is right up your alley. They do a great job of bringing the movie to a series.

The stories are pretty good; the show's executive producers also did one of my favorite shows from last season, "Forever."  I'm glad they found a good replacement job. 

The DVD has some good features, such as the extended pilot (uncensored), a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes and a gag reel. Season 2 is coming up and it should be a blast!

HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES

LETHAL WEAPON: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

ON BLU-RAYTM AND DVD SEPTEMBER 19, 2017

Featuring All 18 Episodes of FOX’s #1 New Series Plus                                                                                           

an Exclusive ‘Reloading Lethal Weapon’ Featurette

BURBANK, CA (June 5, 2017) – With an average weekly audience of 9.3 million in its first season, FOX’s #1 new series is an explosive thrill ride filled with comedy, action and heart that features America’s original buddy cop duo. Based on the hit movie franchise, Lethal Weapon, tells the story of a slightly unbalanced former Navy SEAL joining forces with a veteran detective as partners on the Los Angeles police force.  Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings all 18 episodes of this season’s most electrifying action series to Blu-Ray TM and DVD with the release of Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season on September 19th, 2017.  Available to own for $39.99 / $44.98 SRP, Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season also includes a Blu-Ray and DVD exclusive featurette; an uncensored, extended pilot episode; deleted scenes and a hilarious gag reel! Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season is also available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers.

Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) and Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) are back on the streets of L.A., in Warner Bros. Television’s adaptation of the classic buddy cop action-comedy. The series introduces these two polar opposites: Riggs a volatile former Navy SEAL-turned-detective out of El Paso, Texas with a tendency to dive into the line of fire following the tragic deaths of his wife and unborn son; and Murtaugh, a seasoned, by-the-book detective cautiously returning to the LAPD in the wake of a heart attack that nearly killed him.  While the partnership seems doomed from the start, the dynamic is crazy enough that it just might work. The question remains… can the two of them work together to protect the crime-ridden streets of Los Angeles, or will Riggs get the two of them killed first?

With Blu-ray’s unsurpassed picture and sound, Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. The 3-disc Blu-ray will feature a high-definition Blu-ray of all 17 episodes from season one.

From executive producers Matt Miller (Forever, Chuck), Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, The LEGO Movie), Jennifer Gwartz (Veronica Mars, Forever) and McG (Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation), the action-packed first season of Lethal Weapon stars Damon Wayans (In Living Color), Clayne Crawford (Rectify, A Walk to Remember), Jordana Brewster (The Fast and the Furious), Keesha Sharp (Are We There Yet?), Kevin Rahm (Desperate Housewives), Chandler Kinney, Dante Brown (Mr. Robinson), Johnathan Fernandez (Girls) and Michelle Mitchenor (Chi-Raq).  Returning for a second season on FOX, Lethal Weapon is produced by Lin Pictures, Inc. in association with Good Session Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is thrilled to deliver Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season to Blu-ray and DVD this fall,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “Fans old and new will embark on an action-packed ride throughout all episodes of the hit new series as well as new exclusive bonus features and extras.”
