Editorial Reviews

The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place.

Oh how I enjoyed the Quinn Martin produced shows of the sixties and seventies. Cannon was no exception. William Conrad, before Cannon, was a CBS employee for many years. The voice of Matt Dillon on the radio version of Gunsmoke, and narrator of "The Fugitive," CBS promised Conrad his own series, on TV. Conrad was a big man, and hollywood, with it's obsession with thin and beautiful, stepped out of it's obsession with Cannon. Season 2 was fun to watch. Some of the era's best stars were on the show. The Lincoln Mk 4 Cannon drove, and his mobile car phone were fun to watch as well. This show was nominated for emmys, and was no slouch.

The only things that would make it a little better, would be commentary by say, some guest stars or someone significantly connected with the show. I know this is difficult, since most of them have passed on. William Conrad died in 1994. I also wish that CBS would release the series by seasons rather than volumes. The quality of the DVDs is good, but not outstanding. No HD here, but good. I wish somehow we could get other Quinn Martin shows released to DVD, like Twelve O'Clock High, and the FBI.

Buy this if you want to happily revisit some fine old detective action. A great period series. Kids get interested in the older vehicles and 70's habitats found in this show.

I bought this series simply for nostalgia's sake. I like William Conrad as an actor. I remembered having seen this series when it first aired and enjoyed the shows at the time. Purely for nostalgia, I wanted to see them again.

Three things struck me as I watched the series that I didn't even notice at the time: 1) all the cars in the show are Fords, 2) there were no seat belts, 3) no one locked their cars. Motels have evolved since this series.

Conrad is a likeable overweight private detective who takes on clients he believes are innocent. He is the protector of the underdog and women. The stories are still interesting and believable. Setting are, of course, period. A nice glimpse into Southern California history and values. Emphasis is on story line and character rather than special effects. Car chases are in most episodes.

For anyone wanting to dip into TV nostalgia, this series is a must.

I bought this two-volume set of Cannon as a gift for a relative. He loves the series and I do as well, but I've not bought these DVDs for myself because Amazon's product information does not indicate that the DVDs are close-captioning or subtitled. I am hearing impaired and I need the captioning in order to follow the dialogue. However, I am happy to say that the person who received my gift informs me that these two volumes do contain close captioning for the hearing impaired.
I tried to update Amazon's product information to include this, but I'm not sure my addition will be accepted. I really wish Amazon would take the presence or absence of captioning much more seriously. Many customers must make a decision on whether to purchase a DVD on the basis of the description and if it is wrong or incomplete, it is the customer who must suffer!

"Cannon" was a great detective series from the early to mid-seventies. The DVD series has been well done through Season Three. Can't wait until the rest of the seasons are released.
