Mysterious and sophisticated, McCall left behind his life as a shadowy government agent and now atones for the sins of his past by helping his desperate clients fight battles they've lost hope of winning. Through 22 gripping episodes, McCall protects innocent people who feel they have nowhere else to turn, using his spook-tested means to achieve just ends. The role earned Woodward a string of Emmy nominations and, in the show's second season, a Golden Globe award. This first-season set (1985-86) includes guest turns by Luis Guzman, Bradley Whitford, Melissa Joan Hart, and Tony Shalhoub, as well as Robert Lansing in his recurring role as Control, McCall's former boss at the "Company."

    Great Television Series!

    I have been waiting for years for this series to come out on DVD. I loved the show as a child and seeing it again did not disappoint. The main character is a very skilled ex-spy that has retired and wants to help those people in trouble that have no other options. He is cool and dangerous and you are cheering for him as he takes out the bad guys. This is the kind of show that could be on T.V. today. McCall goes around the cops and gives his own kind of justice where the good guy wins and the bad guy might not survive. This series was awesome when it was on TV and it is still great now. I highly recommend this series and am anxious for the release of the second season.

    Equalizer

    This is one of the few TV shows that was as good as I remembered it was. It sure took a long time to become available, strange when you look at what else is out there. Still a good watch.
