Crime dramas today seem to be a dime a dozen. Turn on the television, run through the standard rundown of channels (both on cable and satellite), and it becomes painfully obvious just how many crime dramas are out there. The problem with them is that they are all so run-of-the-mill. Turn back the clock and one will see that the crime dramas of yesteryear offer so much more for audiences. One great example of what once made crime dramas great lies in the classic series Hill Street Blues. And next month audiences will see once again what made Hill Street Blues one of the genre’s groundbreaking series when it releases the series’ fifth season in its entirety.

Hill Street Blues: Season Five will be released on DVD on Tuesday, May 26th. All twenty-three episodes from the series’ fifth season are spread across five discs in this box set. Season Five continues exhibiting writing that remains unparalleled by any crime drama on television today. Though, its influence remains fully visible in shows that came after such as NYPD Blue, The Shield, and many others. Veteran cast members Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz, Barbara Bosson, Joe Spano, and Betty Thomas all return for Season Five’s run along with newcomers Robert Prosky and Mimi Kuzyk. Hill Street Blues: Season Five will be available on DVD Tuesday, May 26th and will retail for MSRP of $34.93. It can be pre-ordered online now at a discounted price of $29.93 via Shout! Factory’s online store at https://www.shoutfactory.com/tv/crime/hill-street-blues-season-five. More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online at:
