Editorial Reviews

10 Original Episodes From 1968

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 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.

The spark of an idea for the greatest of all cop shows took hold in the fertile mind of actor (and later writer/producer/director) Jack Webb when he played a nerdy forensic scientist in the 1946 cult classic "He Walks By Night." That creepy film noir was based on the true story of a serial killer with a genius IQ on the loose in Los Angeles, and the police department's dragnet that finally cornered the killer in the huge sewer system under the streets of the city.

In 1949, Webb developed his first "Dragnet" series into one of the greatest radio shows ever broadcast with superb scripts, acting, and sound effects. From radio, Webb took Dragnet to television in 1951 and the series enjoyed eight years of well-deserved acclaim from its faithful fans, law enforcement agencies, and many other groups.

Dragnet ended its initial run in 1959, but it returned in 1966 with a highly-successful NBC made-for-TV-movie. Dragnet, the new TV series, started in mid-season as "Dragnet 1967" (so viewers would know that this series was all-new shows). Dragnet 1967 was a hit, and returned in the 1968 season as "Dragnet 1968."

This brings us to the "Dragnet 1968, Vol. 1" set produced by Shout! Factory. The set contains the first ten episodes of the 1968 season out of 28 episodes produced for that season. This set does contain some of the 1968 season's best episodes, and also serves as an introduction by Shout! Factory to their new DVD season sets of Dragnet.

The season opener "The Grenade" is about a teenager who throws acid on the back of another teenager in a crowed L.A. theater. The smooth-talking kid who threw the acid manages to get himself released into his parent's custody.

I enjoyed this film. It brought back memories of watching Dragnet as a kid. I watch METV (Memorable Entertainment TV), and see Dragnet episodes there as well. I think I've watched more Dragnet episodes now than when I was a kid.
