Anything can happen in Flashpoint, The Final Season, and Team One of the Strategic Response Unit (SRU) is prepared for just that. This high-risk, one-of-a-kind drama follows the exploits of an elite SWAT team that specializes in resolving extreme situations. Armed and dangerous criminals, bomb threats, abduction and gang wars are all in a day's work for these expert cops. Lead negotiator, Sgt. Greg Parker (Enrico Colantoni), and his trusted team, Ed (Hugh Dillon), Sam (David Paetkau), and Jules (Amy Jo Johnson) face their darkest hour this season. A serial killer is on the run with a victim in tow, a deadly "smart" gun is stolen, and Ed is forced to kill a teenage girl in the line of duty...
But it all comes down to the wire when a terrorist starts bombing the city's most populated buildings. In the epic conclusion to one of television's most thrilling dramas, the SRU gives it everything they've got to save a city plunged into chaos. Flashpoint finishes its run on DVD with its final season! 3-disc set includes all 13 action-packed episodes of the final season, plus great special features: Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes.
On March 18th the folks at CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment will release Flashpoint - The Final Season in the USA. This 3-disc set priced at $39.98 SRP contains the last episodes of the show's run. As many of you know, these are already available in Canada on the Season 5 set, as the seasons are numbered differently on DVD in the U.S. versus the Canadian packages. But CBS/Paramount is not only making these available as their own set, but also shrinkwrapping all of their individual season boxes together into a "complete series" bundle as well (no special packaging, contents or pricing, however).
