The Sentinel - At Last, There Are New DVD Plans for The Popular Early-UPN-Era Show

No specific release date yet, but VEI expects to release it before the end of 2015

Posted by David Lambert
Visual Entertainment, Inc. (VEI) is well-known in North America for TV-DVD releases (in both the USA and Canada) of some highly acclaimed television shows, including Cagney & Lacey, The Equalizer, Nash Bridges, Hell's Kitchen, Diagnosis Murder, McMillan and Wife, In Search Of..., The Mod Squad, John Byner's Bizarre, (Chef Gordon) Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, and many more. Now the Toronto-based studio is announcing that in the 3rd and 4th Quarters of 2015 they are releasing a huge slate of new TV-DVDs, and one of the classic television programs included in that slate will be The Sentinel:
    One of the most original and intriguing TV seriesto hit the airways. Starring Richard Burgi as James Ellison a former Special Forces soldier who acquired ultra-sensitive powers during a tribal ritual on his last mission in the Peruvian jungle. Powers that he now puts to very good use in his new war...the war on crime.
This show is just ONE item taken from a very impressive list of 12 named shows (see our eleven other news posts today for those items). NOTE that specific release dates have NOT BEEN SET so far...nor do we have details or package art at this time, either; just the heads-up to expect this release during the second half of the year. Also, VEI's president, Jeff Sprigg, notes that there are "Many More Releases Coming!"

The Sentinel aired on UPN starting in 1996 (roughly a year after the network was born). It was created by Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, the same two people behind the original 1990 series The Flash. Richard Burgi starred as "Jim Ellison," in a show that lasted for 4 seasons. A long time ago, in 2006, Paramount released The Complete 1st Season on DVD...but never continued with the releases, and that first season set has since gone out of print. Now, at long last, perhaps fans can hope to get the remaining episodes on DVD, including episodes that contain guest star appearances by the likes of Jeri Ryan, Tony Perez, John Pyper-Ferguson, Don S. Davis, Stacy Haiduk, Andrew Robinson, Robert Vaughn, Mark Pellegrino, Clifton Davis, Walton Goggins, Kelly Hu, Bo Jackson, Bruce Kirby, Zack Ward, Perry King, Jessalyn Gilsig, Edward Albert, and Tom Cavanagh, among others. We can't wait to bring you more long-awaited info! Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur.
