Summary of "Season 1 - I see Dead Bodies": It's nice to see a set like this coming from Universal. A few years ago they seemed to care very little about putting bonus material on any of their DVD sets. I remember their entry for "Best Special Feature" at one of the TV-DVD awards shows was the unaired Munsters pilot, while Fox submitted an hour-and-a-half behind-the-scenes look at shooting the 24 season finale. Universal has included interviews with the actors, some insightful commentary tracks and deleted scenes for a catalog title (yes, this is considered catalog), and they've also licensed original music! It's nice to see their approach to TV-on-DVD change so drastically, and while I'm mentioning this in the Crossing Jordan review, many of their other titles have also increased the amount of bonus material included on the set (yes, there are still some sets that are bare-bonus, but you'll find that at any studio). They also create some very nice packaging for their sets.
I really enjoyed this show; it's a bit like CSI (come on, it's hard not to draw comparisons), because both deal with dead people and solving crimes, but I found Crossing Jordan to have much more interesting characters. It's a character-driven series as opposed to a procedural crime drama. It's a bit quirky, and I enjoyed the Jordan character; she's a VERY strong woman!
Hopefully this set sells well enough that Universal can continue putting it out; it's a great show, and I hope to finally see the other part of the Las Vegas cross-over episodes! (read entire review)
