5.0 out of 5 stars ONLY HALF SEASONS WITH QUINN MARTIN SHOWS June 19 2007
By alain robert TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Like most reviewers,i was disapointed that all QUINN MARTIN shows(THE UNTOUCHABLES,THE FUGITIVE and THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO)are all presented in two volumes per year.Most shows have a full year collection.However,once i got over that fact,i was glad to watch the pilote and the first fifteen episodes of season 1 of THE UNTOUCHABLES.For a series that is almost 50 years old,it is still very much watchable.One of my pleasures of this set is the many supporting actors that were in each episodes:JACK WARDEN,CAMERON MITCHELL,JACK LORD,GAVIN McCLEOD,JACK WESTON,ALAN HALE,MARTIN LANDAU,CLAIRE TREVOR etc.If there is a black and white serie you should buy,this is the one.It actually fits the so called film noir atmosphere.Can't wait for the remaining episodes of season 1.I'll place a call to TONY SOPRANO to cut down the price.After all,he has to keep his mafia connections alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars When the Nation Admired the good guys April 10 2007
Format:DVD
In today's world where the gangland thugs are admired and worshiped. I miss the old days when the criminals were considered thugs and punks. Tony Soprano would not have lasted one episode with Bob Stack. Ness knew how to handle these creeps usually with a belly full of lead. You could not buy or scare the Untouchables off and when you killed one your life expectancy was at best tenuous. This was a great show where the Feds were the good guys and the mob was regarded as punks and cowards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic G-Men vs. Mobsters Saga March 5 2007
By Terence Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Retro television shows have never done particularly well unless they were set in the Old West. Shows set in the 20's, 30's, 40's, etc, any era outside of the one in which they aired have never lasted long except in three major exceptions - Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and The Untouchables.

The Untouchables succeeded for a number of reasons. First, the veil that had been on the Mafia for a number of years was slowly but surely being peeled off due to gangland killings and the fame of gangsters such as Al Capone, Bugsy Siegel, Dutch Schultz, Lucky Luciano, and others. Even before the Godfather and its outstanding first sequel, the public had a fascination and curiosity with the mob. So take some true events, ture characters, heavily fictionalize them with Hollywood gloss and pathos, and you get a very successful show that made a star out of Robert Stack and brought new fame to a Treasury agent named Eliot Ness.

The Untouchables' First Season collection should not have been split up into multiple sections. That's greed, pure and simple. But the lure of this show - its great characters, performances, grit and intelligence will draw buyers even though they know they're being ripped off. Stack's Ness is one of the best alltime detectives - fearless, relentless, and absolutely ruthless with the bad guys. His politically correct team had everything but a black guy (which would have really stretched believability too far), including a white guy (Hobson), Italian (Rossi), Native American (Youngfellow), and Jew (Rossman). The supporting casts were always excellent, and Bruce Gordon brough the right amount of humor and menace to Frank Nitti, Capone's chief lieutenant.

The Untouchables - Season One, Volume 1 is not untouchable, but it is irresistable.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Gangs Of Chicago Won't Know What Hit Them... April 10 2007
By Kelly Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's an oddity that this stellar series was abandoned on VHS by Columbia House years ago after little more than half of the episodes were released; all of them sustaining unnecessary and tasteless cuts to their original formats. What's even worse is how long it's taken THE UNTOUCHABLES to find preservation on DVD amidst a sea of shows of lesser impact and creative significance, but that's finally changed.

Paramount's new releases are something to be proud of. While the DVD sets do not as of yet boast any bonus features (with the exception of the Desilu/Westinghouse intros for The Scarface Mob), one can surmise that a continued success of the series on DVD may inspire some additions in later releases.

The prints and sound are astoundingly clear; gone are those muddy prints from syndicated 16mm films dubbed to VHS. The DVD menus are replete with decent (but static) artwork with only a few questionable arrangements. It seems they took anything they could out of the vault to put these things together.

No chapter menus, but each commercial break becomes a new chapter, quick and easy to jump to.

The only drawback is the extended WAIT for the next installment of Season 1. We have to wait until DECEMBER 18th for the rest of the season and it's stellar episodes, where the production value heightened and writers finally found their mark (see "The Frank Nitti Story," "One Armed Bandits," or "The Unhired Assassin for proof of a show hitting its stride.)

Bring on Seasons 2 and 3, and yes, even the maligned Season 4. Get Bruce Gordon and the others together for interviews, dig through those archives for the teasers, commercicals, keep Ness and his men coming, tommy guns and brewery-smashing trucks a'blazin!

This is cinematic television worthy of study and enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars all i can say is WOW....uber cool black and white Noirish fun! April 10 2007
By Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am too young to have seen these when they aired ....I would have been about 5!, but I was curious so I purchased this set..

and

1) they are stunning transfers...crisp beautiful black and white noirish masterpieces every one!

2) The intros from Desi Arnaz and Walter Winchell on the pilot episode are nice touches

3) the packaging is sensational! All four DVDs (no flippers!) in a case the size of a normal DVD case that holds one film...so this is a fabulously small shelf space hog!

4) while the whole season would be preferred ....13 hours for about $30...is pretty good value for my money...

5) Robert Stack is and was a very unique talent and the guest stars are a who's who of great character actors and budding stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rat-ta-tat-tat!! Aug. 31 2007
By Anthony Caton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
What a terrific time capsule -- choppers by the dozen, block-long Hudsons, and every hood has a fedora and a moll. This was great TV in 1959 and it holds up well even today. Robert Stack as "Eliot Ness" really didn't have to act in this show -- just react to a terrific bunch of hammy character actors. The rogue's gallery of performers in the first one-half season set includes Bruce Gordon ("Frank Nitti"), Clu Gulager ("Mad Dog Call"), Jack Elam ("Nick Bravo"), Nehemiah Persoff ("Jake Guzik"), Sinatra favorite Henry Silva ("Little Charlie Sebastiano"), Claire Trevor ("Ma Barker"), Leo Gordon ("Whitey Parno"), and Larry Dobkin ("Dutch Schultz"). This was producer Quinn Martin's first hit show, but a long string of successes would follow including, "The Fugitive," "The FBI," "Cannon," "Twelve O'Clock High," "The Invaders," "Streets of San Francisco," and "Barnaby Jones." The audio and video quality of "The Untouchables" set is first-rate, and this is a MUST HAVE for crime drama collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable May 7 2007
By Mr. Gary E. Ertman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Just received THE UNTOUCHABLES in the mail and could not

wait to open it up like a kid at Christmas. The series

which began in 1959 when I was 12...made an impression on me.

There was hardly any sub plots to get in the way of the fight

between Good (Eliot Ness and his men) and Evil (Al Capone and

the likes of Frank Nitti etc) The music would build all the time

when the next brewery would be hit or the next body would be

tossed out of a 1930s automobile at 30 miles an hour. And there

was Robert Stack in his 3 piece suit taking down the baddies in his

classic style. No need for foul language or nudity like the Sopranos.

It still delivers unbeatable entertainment value with quality sets.

Definitely worth a look for Season One, Vol. 1
