Amazon has pulled Vol 2 only stating that it is under review due to some possilbe problem. This Vol 2 was shipped to me before it was pulled. I have just finished watching ALL 5 discs, & found NO problem with Vol 2. All 5 discs played, no clitches, freezes, sound problems, incorrect episode listings, etc. By incorect episode listings, I mean that every episode is different, what is listed on the back of the box is the same as listed on back of the dvd case, & the same is listed from the menu on the tv screen for the appropriate disc. For some reason, Amazon saw fit to pull this dvd set, but didn't feel it necessary to say exactly what the problem was. I found NO problem with the set I received. As far the series itself - the only thing I can say is that this is/was one of the best tv series EVER. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these "old" episodes, revisiting the way things used to be. Just think, no sex, no cursing, just fast moving action with almost always great acting. Unfortunatley, they don't make them like this anymore. I would recommend this series to anyone that is tired of the "crap" on TV these days. Very enjoyable stuff.
UPDATE: The problem has to be the packaging. Vol 2 has 3 DVD's stacked on top of each other, on a single central hub. The DVD's tend to come off the hub & get scracthed. However, the Vol 3 I received has the same problem, possibly the DVD's are even looser than the Vol 2 set. Vol 4 has the same 3 DVD's stacked on a single hub, but the hub is different & the DVD's don't come off to get scratched. I also got this same loosy packaging with Vol 2 of Bat Materson.
