Finally S.W.A.T. Season 2 DVD Coming
Just got word from tvshowsondvd website that the long awaited Final Season 2 of the television Action Cop show S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons And Tactics Team) will be coming to DVD on 22 May 2012. It is about frackin' time. It was way back in 2003 the year the S.W.A.T. movie starring Samuel L. Jackson and L.L. Cool J with Colin Farrell and Michelle Rodriguez was released and brought out on DVD that Season 1 of the show was released by Sony. Why they couldn't have released Season 2 shortly after I have no idea. Oh wait it was supposedly because there was little interest and sales for Season One weren't high enough. Season Two will be released by Shout! Factory the same folks who finally released the Max Headroom series on DVD. The SRP for this 6 disc season set is $44.99 which is pretty typical a bit high but worth it. I prefer to pay between $20 - $30 for television show seasons but I have gone as high as $45 from time to time. The Original show starred Steve Forrest as the leader of an L.A. based S.W.A.T. team. It also starred Robert Urich as the cocky ladies man. The series ran from 1975-76 so the look and feel of the show is a bit dated by the 2010's/20Teens standards.
