Dragnet 1969: 26 Original Episodes From Season Three

Sergeant Joe Friday (Jack Webb) and Officer Bill Gannon (Harry Morgan) return for the third season of the classic police drama from the mind of Jack Webb.

It is just another day in Los Angeles: smog, traffic and unceasing crime. But no matter the day, duty calls for Friday and Gannon. From dealing with burglars, runaways and druggies to representing the LAPD on an L.A. talk show and working with the secret service to prep for a visit from the President of the United States, you know these boys will have it handled. 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 1969.

Spawned from the popular Dragnet radio program, followed by the acclaimed 1950s television series, Dragnet 1967-1970 featured Jack Webbs chief creation in its prime: opening the door for his later hit shows Adam-12 and Emergency!

1.0 out of 5 stars Once Again, Beware of Edits December 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When Shout Factory released Dragnet 1968, for some reason they decided to trim off the first 3 minutes of the Pilot Dragnet movie. For the release of Dragnet 1969, the scissors are back out for more trims.

The episode "Narcotics- DR-16" clocks in at 20:10. The opening has Jack Webb do a short "This is the City, I carry a Badge" and goes straight to the opening titles.
In the original, Jack talks about Century City, the Bunker Hill developent and a look at some of the Performing Theatres in L.A. I don't know what else is missing from the episode, but there's over 4 minutes missing.
The episode is suppose to run 25:30.

The episode "The Joy Riders" is only 24:30. This episode was originally suppose to be the final episode of the previous season, but was pre empted due to the assassination of Martin Luthor King. It finally aired during Season 3, but why is it only 24:30? All of the other Season 2 episodes run between 25:00 and 25:30.

I don't understand why Shout continues to release edited Dragnet DVDs, but I think they're doing a poor job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Again Worth the Cost- Thank You SHOUT December 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since SHOUT took over the dvd production of Dragnet, the quality has been GREAT! Like Dragnet 1968 SHOUT has placed bonus material on one of the disks. For this version disk 1 has a rare 1954 Dragnet episode (I forgot the name not being at home as I write this), two Jack Web PSA announcements on Social Security along with Muscular Distrophy and a promo for Dragnet 1969. The quality of these bonus features are not restored. The rest of the disks look great and has the same selection format as Dragnet 1968. For the price this is a worth the purchase and a nice way to finish off the Dragnet series. The 69 Dragnet has quite a few episodes on Juvenile cases and if you are as old as I am you, know the bright colors used on clothes and household items at that time. Often I judge the quality of the dvd processing by the crispness of bright colors and the luminance transition from bright to dark. The dvd's are beautiful. There is very little color smear and the colors tend to be slightly warm. The fourth dvd when the Gannons drop by Friday's apartment for dinner is a good example of this. Bill Gannon's wife Rita is wearing a yellow-green suit, notice how crisp the colors are and when the neighbors drop by the apartment for a party (toward the end) notice all the different colors and see how they track (no smearing or fading). SHOUT did a nice job. THANK YOU!!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good reflection upon the series!! February 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My low rating is NOT a reflection upon this wonderful and outstanding series!! Sgt. Friday should arrest the producers of this box set, send them to the CDC, put them into one of the CDC Prisoner uniforms, and leave them on the yard. The quality of this DVD box set does not do this wonderful series justice.

I thought the first season box set was a joke coming on two disc that are double sided, but season three (the second box sex I examined) takes the cake! While it comes on single sided disc, which allows for art work, the transfer is of low quality in the resolution for DVD / Blu-Ray and is providing washed out color in many places. The worst, though, for our deaf citizens and those in a crowd (as I say the bar impaired) is the lack of sub-titles. At least season one has sub-titles and has quality transfer.

The sub-titles exist for the series, as my local TV station has cut versions of these episodes with sub-titles. One expects a DVD box set for a season to have the uncut and sub-titled episodes, after all not everyone has perfect hearing or is in a quiet situation.

I give the series 5 stars and this DVD box set .5 stars for an overall rating of 2 stars.

The ONLY reason to buy this DVD box set is because you're a Dragnet fan and it is the only game in town. Hopefully, once the series (as with Twelve O'Clock High) goes into the public domain, someone will do a better version of season 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright and Clear December 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
From "Fat Donna" to the crooked cop on the take from the gambling syndicate, they're all here.

In case you're on the fence about purchasing, I wanted to echo those who rate the quality of the DVDs. I've been enjoying this season on a large flat-screen. The sound is clear and the color crisp. They mastered this set onto DVD with care. They're obviously better than my 10 year-old VHS copies made from TV Land. But they also look better than I've ever remembered seeing them more recently off Antenna TV. The wild 60s psychedelia colors are on full display. The dialog and music sound clear on my sound system.

I can't attest to any edits but my copies seem to be fully intact.

One more thing about the video...between these discs and the TV I'm viewing them on, it's incredible to look the openings and the other outdoor shots. It's a real time capsule to the era. The video is sharp...signs and billboards are easily read.

3.0 out of 5 stars More community relations than crime series March 9, 2013
I am a huge fan of Dragnet, television and radio both. Nothing in the world like seeing Joe Friday and that deadpan delivery. I have all of the DVDs for this show, color and black and white. That being said, this is not the glory year of the series. In fact, I would say Disc 1 is almost completely forgettable. The major problem is that instead of being a crime drama, it is almost just a public relations reel for the LAPD. There are no enthralling cases, just us learning about how fair and hardworking the LAPD are. It is almost like you are watching training videos for public relations class, mixed with some establishment propoganda. The show does pick up after Disc 1, thankfully. But man, too many episodes are the definition of boredom.
