Just watched all of the episodes of Season 4 of Dragnet. Some great episodes here - my favs include

Personnel: The Shooting
Juvenille: The Little Pusher (Kid comes from a home of "dopers")
Burglary: Courtroom
Bunco: $9,000 (LOL @ some of the lines - "It was hot in LA and Bill just had hot dogs" LOL)
Narco: Missing Hype
A.I.D.: The Weekend (Bill invites Joe to stay with him for the weekend)
Forgery: The Ranger
D.H.Q.: Night School (or as I call it "The Red Sweater" episode)
I.A.D.: The Receipt
Robbery: The Harrassing Wife (where a wife tries Friday's patience LOL!)
D.H.Q.: The Victims (features Friday chewing out a rookie cop)

Shout! Factory once again brings us the goods with the "Rest" of the 60's Dragnet. The menu graphics are the same as the previous two seasons. There's a bonus feature of Jack Webb and Harry Morgan (with a fancy moustache) from a 70s episode of Jack Benny's Farewell Show....

So nice now to have ALL of the 60s Dragnet episodes....

If there was only one slight negative about this season is that the picture seems to be a little "darker" with a few more noticable scratches and other residue.... but overall it's pretty clear and won't deter from the viewer's enjoyment of this.... maybe it was just the way it was filmed in the last season.... I'm just comparing to the previous 2 seasons.

Still I would rate this A+ based on the fact I love the last season and I'm glad we have all of Dragnet (60's series) on DVD.

Thank you shout factory for releasing these seasons of dragnet. And thank you to all the other fans for voicing your desire to have this entire series released. It's a shame that only four seasons were produced because this is my all time favorite show. I started watching it on nick at nite when I was six or seven and I've been hooked ever since. This isn't my favorite season of the show but all four seasons are equally good. This does contain my favorite episode though. Starring the late Jill Banner playing three different roles in one episode. Picture and sound quality are excellent just like previous shout releases. The packaging has changed from slim line cases in a box to a keep case with flip disc holders. Like the CBS releases ala the untouchables, the fugitive, happy days etc. I'm ao happy to have the entire series on DVD. Again thank you shout and dragnet fans.

It is so nice to have this to complete the series. So many of the topics are still relevant today. Jack Webb has taken a lot of criticism for his acting, but he is dead on as Joe Friday and Harry Morgan is perfect as a serio-comic foil. Check out the episode where Bill invites Joe for the weekend. Friday actually laughs! Thanks again SHOUT! Whenever I have DRAGNET playing everyone in the house stops and watches.

I was in grade school when this series ended so you can say I grew up with Friday and Gannon. They, as well as my parents, taught me to respect others and to be responsible for my actions.

Anyway, another great set from Shout! Factory. There is some interlacing in some scenes, but is tolerable.

No Subtitles, but a hilarious skit from the Jack Benny special.

For once I highly recommend this set without any major complaints.

Crime and punishment in 26 minutes as Joe and Frank take you down memory lane in late 1960's LA. Yes,a bit campy at times, but Jack Webb was the master of efficiency in establishing shots, camera angles, set reproductions and one of the few producers and directors in Hollywood that took his success from radio to TV. Sit back, relax and take a nostalgic trip back to payphones, telephone books and mechanical typewriters. Hard to believe that these are almost 50 years old now. I was 10 years old when they were originally shown so I missed them as they were shown on Thursday night at 9:30 (well past a 5th graders bedtime!) And don't overlook the ashtrays on every table and wild interior colors that everyone seemed to have in their homes and offices back then. (i.e. shag carpets and over the top lampshades) Great for a laugh as you compare today's lifestyle to that era, but the message and moral value he tried to impress upon society(especially the young) have held the test of time pretty well and much of what he presented about disenchanted youth has sadly worsened. View it as a reflection on a simpler time where justice was meted out fairly and when it wasn't he addressed those issues as well. Several episodes in all four seasons address internal affairs issues where some cops are exonerated and some aren't for violating departmental policies. He presented the LAPD with a fairness and objectivity that most law and order shows of the time and present have failed. No gratuitous sex or exploding cars and car chases ad nauseum as so many shows do now to compensate for poor dialog. A realistic portrayal of the mundane and often frustrating side of being a detective with Harry Morgan interjecting a wonderful dose of humor to show that "ol Joe had a lighter side as well. Buy the entire season for a better value (heck, buy all 4 seasons,,,,1967 has the "famous" blue boy" episode)

Webb's last four seasons of Dragnet were trying to show a "kinder, gentler" Dragnet after the Watts Riots and the focus changed in the plots: more about community policing, new approaches to inner city problems and so forth. All well and good, but it lost the gritty procedural roots that under-pinned the original show. I guess with Captain Bill Parker dead they needed to clean up the image. The show was still good, but more tame. Maybe you couldn't have it both ways...
