Editorial Reviews

This is the city: Los Angeles. It is 1968, and Sergeant Joe Friday (Jack Webb) and Officer Bill Gannon (Harry Morgan, M*A*S*H*) are hitting the streets once again in the name of law and order, to protect and to serve. The community landscape is littered daily by juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, student dissidence and con-artistry but, just like that, it can all be brought to a screeching halt when Friday and Gannon appear on the scene. Ladies and gentlemen, the stories you are about to see are true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. This is Dragnet 1968.

Originally conceived as a radio program and then a popular 1950s television series, the Dragnet series from 1967 1970 featured the visionary cop drama of creator Jack Webb in its prime: paving the way for the hit shows Adam-12 and Emergency!.

Bonus Features:

* Jack Webb The Man Behind Badge 714: A discussion with Peggy Webber, Tom Williams, Jackie Loughery, Herb Ellis and more.

* Dragnet 1966 Pilot Movie

* Vintage Dragnet 1969 Trailer

* Commemorative Booklet

OUT with Universal and IN with SHOUT! Factory.

Major kudos to Universal for allowing SHOUT! Factory to take over the Dragnet franchise! This is THE classic Dragnet that we grew to and know love with Jack Webb's Joe Friday teamed with Harry Morgan as Officer Bill Gannon. SHOUT! Factory has a superb track record with crisp video/audio season sets as with "Adam 12", S.2-5, and "Dragnet 1968" has followed suit. Among the 28 episodes of Season 2 are two of Dragnet's finest narratives; "The Shooting Board" & "The Big High".

And just check out the super bonus features for Dragnet 1968: Season Two--

*Dragnet 1966 Pilot Movie
*"Jack Webb: The Man Behind Badge 714" Featurette
*Original Dragnet Trailer
*Commemorative Booklet

Optimistically seasons 3 & 4 are on their way. This really makes up for the short comings of Season 1 from Universal!

UPDATE: 07.14.10

As many reviewers have noted, SHOUT! Factory initially excised the 1st 2:15 minutes from the 1966 Pilot Movie. This footage, while fairly tame for today's dramas, is slightly disturbing but really should have been included. Now I'm hearing that a replacement disc will be offered with the 1966 Pilot Movie intact. Hearing this I promptly sent an email to SHOUT! Factory for a replacement disc on a Friday afternoon and there was my replacement disc #1 in the mailbox the following Monday. Talk about a DVD distributor taking prompt responsibility; Woo Hoo!!!!

UPDATE: 09.07.10

Super good news for Christmas 2010 - SHOUT! Factory will be releasing Dragnet 3rd Season - (Dragnet 1969), being released on December 7, 2010 and now the final season, Dragnet 1970: Season Four spring of 2011!

Much obliged SHOUT! Factory.....

"What's your name, fella?"
"Freddy, man, Freddy the Loader."
"That's your last name, is it, 'Loader?'"
"No, man, that's just what they call me."
"Who calls you that?"
"Everybody, man."
"Got a job, Freddy?"
"Ain't got the time."
"Then where'd you get the bread to score?"
"Don't need money man, that's love grass."
"Yeah, right."
"In the Valley, man. Really square..."

Three words: The Big High. A stunning slice of classic 60's television that's as potent as its subject matter and will leave you breathless. What other episode would give you a no-nonsense lecture on the dangers of recreational drug use ("No, I don't have time for a lecture, I'm just going to lay it out for you straight..."), throw in a Bible lesson ("Try Chapter Five, lady, the Apostle Paul also said this...") and, for the obligatory levity, reveal the hidden ingredient in Bill Gannon's special barbecue sauce? Having given up all hope that Universal would deliver Season Two, I kept a VCR handy should my lost copy taped off Nick at Nite two decades ago ever resurface. That this absolute gem of docudrama was withheld from the discriminating DVD-buying public for so long is a crime in itself. God bless you, Shout Factory!

Jack Webb's longtime hit police procedure series finally returns with the 28 episodes from Season 2 of the 60s version of the Series. It begins with the fabled Joe Friday vs. 'Timothy Leary' debate episode. Each episode has in it at least one of the 'Jack Webb Repertory Acting Group', people he used on the the show many, many times. The transfers are clean, crisp and complete. Plus it has a lovely interview segment with three actors he used many times over, and one of Jack Webb's wives. But the capper is the Inclusion of the feature length, made-for-TV Pilot film 'Dragnet'(1966). I recommend this DVD Set wholeheartedly. It has been well worth the wait. I hope Seasons 3 and 4 aren't long in coming. - James Bryant

After buying the first season, I was disappointed on the way Universal presented the material. SHOUT took over the rights to produce season 2 and it's GREAT. All discs are single sided, have the bonus 1966 Pilot and has bonus materials about Dragnet and Jack Webb. The quality of the video is very good to excellent. The colors are sharp and the contrast is excellent. The bonus movie looks like from a copy because I will see the commercial or reel blips. The quality of the bonus movie is better than I have ever seen it. Season 2 is my favorite for this generation of Dragnet. I've waited a long time for this and it was worth it. Can't wait for the third season. Hope SHOUT will do that too.

RE: The Dragnet pilot movie (included as a bonus feature on disc 1): To viewers like myself who watch this movie and come away with the feeling that they've missed something - you're absolutely correct! This DVD version is missing the two-minute introductory montage narrated by Jack Webb ("This is the city, Los Angeles, CA------") during which we're shown a young blonde female, tied up and cringing in terror, while a homicidal photgrapher fondles the cord he'll shortly use to strangle her. The montage also shows a (male) corpse being dumped from a car, a body in a hotel bed, and a rose discarded in a hotel room wash basin - all of which are related to the cases which follow. (I should add that over the years I've watched this movie various times on various TV stations, and this opening montage has ALWAYS been included before! One wonders how this DVD company managed to overlook this omission.) No Dragnet episode seems complete if we don't hear Jack Webb say "I work here. I carry a badge." Anyway, I offer this info to silence nagging doubts, and to reassure Dragnet fans that they aren't imagining things!
