This is a good quality purchase at a reasonable price. Exceptional audio and video experience. I would recommend this to other Dragnet junkies.

Format: DVD
For the fan of the entire run and permutations of the Dragnet series, this is a must-have release: very clean transfer, with a few rough spots in the video and excellent audio. The stories are also engaging (though "The Big LSD" was pretty campy, Blue Boy's antics got so weird that I thought at any moment Friday was going to call on Batman for help!) and had the right amount of grimness and humour to balance everything out.
I think though that Universal could've given us some more on this release, though - it's formatted on two double-sided DVDs, with one side of the second DVD having only three episodes and the other side blank! (The first DVD has seven episodes per side). There's no commentary, no essays or explanation on how and what Jack Webb's approach was in formulating the series and having to deal with things in re-launching the series for the 1960s (you'll notice, for instance, that Friday and Gannon now inform the perps their rights under the Miranda decision). Spacing out the DVDs better as single-sided ones with graphics would've been nice, and what would've been even cooler would have been to include the "Dragnet 1966" TV movie (that was never aired until a few years ago on a cable network in the US) that wound up being the thing that green-lighted the new series - among other things, it tied up some stuff from the 1950s series, and introduced Harry Morgan's Gannon properly.
The CD from Radio Spirits was a nice surprise, but "The Big Cut" wasn't one of the better episodes from the radio series. I would've picked something like Webb's personal favourite, "The Big Trio", or the chilling "Claude Jimmerson" (which actually came with a parental warning!) or "The Werewolf" or "The Big Break".

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By The Critic TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 4 2007
Format: DVD
Dragnet "Season One" contains all 17 episodes from the show's first season(1967). The 17 episodes are spread out over two double sided discs (plus a third bonus cd disc with a radio broadcast from 1954). This DVD release from Universal Studios is a complete waste of disc space. The first double sided disc contains 14 episodes while the second disc contains only 3 episodes, so it really is a waste of disc space. The video transfer is very good, although the image does suffer from some dirt and debris here and there. The sound is pretty decent for a show this old, so no complaints. I bought this set at Wal-Mart during their boxing week sale, so I really got a bargain. I hope Universal Studios does a better job with the remaining seasons of "Dragnet".

DVD Features Include:
* Bonus CD
* Radio Spirits presents "The Big Cut," based on actual case files of the Los Angeles Police Department (originally aired Septmeber 14, 1954)

DVD Episodes Include :

[Disc One Side One]
The Big LSD
The Big Explosion
The Big Kidnapping
The Big Interrogation
The Big Masked Bandits
The Big Bank Examiners
The Big Hammer

[Disc One Side Two]
The Big Candy Store
The Big Fur Burglary
The Big Jade
The Big Shooting
The Big Accident
The Big Bookie
The Big Subscription Racket

[Disc 2 Side A]
The Big Gun
The Big Kids
The Big Bullet

Disc 2, Side B (No Programming)
Disc 3 (Bonus Radio Episode) CD Audio

You bet its the disks....more junk from Universal July 29 2005
By Yarby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
At first glance, seeing the three slimline cases of this DVD set, the buyer is ready for hours of entertainment. However, upon opening this set, the illusion is soon exposed. The first two-sided DVD of the set contains fourteen episodes. While the transfers are decent (some dirt still shows on certain episodes), it soon becomes apparent that this first disk is primarily what the buyer just paid 30-plus dollars for. The second two-sided (?) disk contains only 3 episodes, and has one completely blank side!!!! The third disk is simply an audio recording of ONE of the episodes of the old radio show.

With all this available space, where are the extras? The television movie, the network promos....maybe even the Dragnet routine with Jack Webb from "The Tonight Show" or some full episodes from the 50's series? As for the audio disk, the "I Love Lucy" sets contain a full program on EACH of the DVD disks!

Add to that the programming of the disks themselves....the user is required to skip over promos each time the disk starts. At the beginning of each episode, the viewer must watch the new "[...]" logo. It cannot be skipped over, as there is no chapter stop at the end of it. And the end of each episode, while including the "Mark VII" sequence, has had the Universal Television sequence removed.

But, of course, none of this matters if the DVD's don't play all the way through without skipping. And, in usual Universal Studio form, these skip like crazy.

Univeral is KNOWN for putting out junk DVD's and these are no exception. (If you don't believe me, read all the reviews about the Abbott and Costello collections, the Dracula collection, the Frankenstein collection, Kojak, The Munsters, the Airport collection....etc., etc.

I love Dragnet....but this set is, without a doubt, a huge ripoff!!!!

"I'll bet your mother had a loud bark!" , Ma'am! April 8 2005
By Glenn M. Schoditsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Thieves, bums, winos, girls who can't keep an address and men who don't care!" (Joe Friday's opinion of the suits at Universal!)

Oh man, this is THE classic Dragnet that we baby boomers grew to and know love. Jack Webb teamed this go around with Harry Morgan as Officer Bill Gannon. From Blue Boy to Officer Gidion C. Dengle, Friday, Gannon and a host of repetitive actors, many back from the 1950's run, provide a gritty and sometime humorous look from the police officers view. Sometimes very stiff with corny acting, (intentional by director Webb) this entire series provides entertainment for all with many episodes done extremely well and on point. Kudos to Universal Home Video for finally bringing the '70's' Dragnet to DVD. Please don't make us wait too long for Seasons 2, 3 & 4.

Update - 06/08/05

I take my kudos to Universal Home Video back. It is great to see these classic episodes again, but do you think they could have cleaned the prints up just a bit? They look as if they mastered them off of TV Land! Disc 1 is cluttered with Side A having playable issues; my original purchase went back to the vendor 3 times for a playable replacement. Disc 2 is sparse with only 3 episodes and a blank Side B. I DO have an older player but I don't have any problem playing any of the other 'modern' DVD purchases lately as another reviewer suggested. It seems that this is a "UNIVERSAL" Studios problem as I have no problems with Image Entertainment and Paramount Studios TV series sets. And I agree; they should have included the 1966 movie as they kindly did with EMERGENCY!.

I'm starting to think that "Thieves, bums, & winos" and even Don Negler himself mastered this mess. I subtract 2 stars for this dismal atrocity from Universal!

Update! 05-31-06

It appears??? that Universal Studios has resolved the DVD manufacturing defects with the Season 2 release of EMERGENCY! I say to Universal bring on the rest of Webb TV; as in the rest of Dragnet, EMERGENCY!, and Adam-12.

UPDATE: 06.26.08

It appears that Universal Studios and others are farming out distribution of TV season sets on DVD. Shout! Factory will be releasing season 2 of Adam-12 in September. Could the rest of Dragnet, Adam-12, Emergency and even other WEBB TV projects be making their way to our DVD players? Cross your fingers!!!

UPDATE: 03.18.10

Hey, crossing my fingers worked; at least for Dragnet! Way to go SHOUT! Factory. Woo Hoo!!!!!!

Where is Season 2? March 24 2006
By Jerry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Dragnet is one of my favorite television shows of all time. I will agree, the transfer is not the best and there are no extras worth mentioning. I still love the set and don't mind having a second rate product as long as I have the episodes. (I did not experience any "freezing" in my collection.)

If you like Dragnet this set is a must have. My question is are they going to release the remaining seasons? It is a true

kick in the teeth to fans when a company releases a DVD set and does not follow up with the entire series. I believe that if they are going to realease a DVD set, they should commit to realeasing the entire collection! (The same thing is going on with Adam-12!) Thankfully, Universal saw it fit to release Emergency Season 2.

Universal, you baited us with Dragnet and Adam-12 Season One.

Maybe sales were not up to your standards, however, the die hard fans bought them. Please don't let us down.

Remastered and Complete May 22 2010
By Michael B. Rovak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I just purchased this set. The disks are marked Copyright 2005, but this is the 2010 version of the production.

Clearly, this set has been remastered. I found the prints to be flawless.

All 17 programs were there in color. The first disk contains 7 programs on side A, 7 programs on side B, and the second disk contains 3 programs on side A and nothing on side B.

All of the problems appear to have been addressed, making this item a GOOD BUY if you love this series.

Love the Show, But the DVDs have problems Jan. 9 2006
By T. Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I grew up watching Dragnet. I was really happy when my wife gave me the DVD set for Christmas. My joy turned to aggravation though as the Discs kept freezing up. And it is not just my DVD player. We have four in the house and it did it in all of them. The discs appear free from scratches and smudges.

Sadly the same thing happened with the McMillan & Wife Season One DVD's (another Universal product)I gave my wife.

It's obvious Universal is having a problem with the production of DVD's.

I did a little checking on the internet and it appears the Adam-12 discs have the same problem.

So be warned, if you buy Universal TV series DVD's, there could be problems.
