I've been waiting for that show, created by John Sayles, to make it to DVD, too. I particularly liked Richard Edson as Wilmer Slade, the loan shark's collector (sent to collect installments from Shannon) who really wants to be a private eye from the pulps. While waiting for his boss's money (and learning a word a day from his calendar), he ends up doing Shannon's investigative work. Elizabeth Pena was also very good as the secretary he didn't really want, but she insisted she had to pay him for winning her case.
