This unique DVD collection features all 16 episodes of the acclaimed crime drama series "Cracker," starring Robert Pastorelli ("Murphy Brown") as Gerry "Fitz" Fitzgerald, a psychologist working with the Los Angeles police. Fitz doesn't fit the typical psychologist stereotype: he's a heavy drinker, a gambler, and says exactly what's on his brilliant mind. But Fitz has uncanny success interrogating criminals; after all, he understands their vices, their weaknesses and their perversities. Fitz is a gritty and ever evolving character who's own life is as complicated and riddled with problems as the cases he's assigned to.
Contains 16 one-hour episodes on four discs.
Robert Pastorelli steps into Robbie Coltrane's formidable shoes in this American remake of the acclaimed British television series CRACKER. Pastorelli turns in a nuanced performance as Gerry "Fitz" Fitzgerald, a troubled psychologist who helps the Los Angeles police department solve difficult cases while struggling with his own inner demons, which include drinking, gambling, extramarital affairs, and a tense relationship with his wife (Carolyn McCormick) and son (Josh Hartnett). An innovative but disturbing take on the standard police-detective genre, the Americanized CRACKER survived for only 16 one-hour episodes before it was cancelled. This collection presents the short-lived series in its entirety, featuring guest appearances by LAW & ORDER's Mariska Hargitay and Coltrane himself.
