Diagnosis Murder Season 1 (Paramount)
Dick Van Dyke stars as a doctor that solves crimes on the side. This show also features Scott Baio. Yes, it is on CBS and God bless them for giving Mr. Baio something to do with his time.

Extras: Director and cast commentaries, alternate ending, deleted scenes, making-of featurette. (Weinstein Co.).
Fantastic film in which nothing is as it seems. Oscar winners Sir Ben Kingsley and Morgan Freeman are rival crime lords that place a man they think is Nick Fisher(Hartnett) in the middle of their blood feud. Also in the fray are Emmy/Golden Globe winners Stanley Tucci and Bruce Willis.
One of the best crime films, along with Brick, of 2006. These are must own movies. If you don't buy these two films, you have no right to complain about the state of Hollywood.
Director Paul McGuigan is slated to direct the big screen version of the tv series The Equalizer.
