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.

I took a gamble on this show a couple of years ago and ordered season one unknown and considering I am not from the era that this show was produced I was to say the least mightily impressed with just about everything about it! How a show of such high quality has been forgotten by my generation and younger is unthinkable and having viewed each episode at least twice through I sincerely believe that this is one show that demands to stand on the collectors shelf with any collection of cult tv. I am sorry I cannot review season two yet as it has just been listed as a preorder but the excitement that I feel tonite knowing I will get a further fix of this wonderful show from a bygone age is delighting me down to my old boots. Read the reviews for season one as I did but take the plunge as this is one cop show that stands out among many many others which have been falsely sold to us as better! An excellent way to spend half an hour after lunch or supper. Cant wait to own every season.

I received season 2 and 3 today. I watched "Hot Rod" and skimmed the other titles. The A/V seems to be on par with the first season release. All is good as far as I'm concerned, especially being that I never really expected these episodes to see an authorized release. I guess waiting patiently for well over fifty-years finally paid off. Enjoy!

After a short wait, these releases are finally showing up, and like Sea Hunt better late than never! I'm very happy with the picture quality which compares with Season 1. This is a much better set, from the price to the production. I got hooked while watching season 1, it's addictive like Mathew's habits. The crimes also seem to be more intense in this season, and Mathews has already shot a bunch of bad guys! The episodes continue to get more and more interesting. It's amazing the stuff they get into, and even Stuart Whitman shows up as a patrol officer in season two. Amazon has put a hold on this item, I wonder why? I have watched the first disc of season 2, and it froze when I selected one episode. I reloaded it, and then it played just fine. One other episode it froze a little during an unimportant scene, but continued playing. The problems were pretty minor. I'm still enjoying the heck out of the set, their not ruining my fun!

There is only a note on the Amazon page for volume two with Amazon saying they are currently reviewing packaging problems. I had loose discs in both seasons two and three. The problem is that one of the volumes in both seasons stacks discs on a single tall spindle. The bottom disc may stay in place, but the top two can easily come loose in shipping resulting in scratched discs. I haven't opened season four yet, but I don't hear loose discs rattling around the way I did the others. This is a manufacturer's packaging problem, and I don't see anything Amazon can do to fix it other than refund your money. This will have to be addressed by the manufacturer and the packaging redesigned or everyone who orders this product is going to get the same problem.
Final rating:
Series : 5 stars
Packaging on DVD set: 1 star
Total rating: 3 stars for this DVD set and for at least season 3 too.

What can I say? I'm back to Sunday evenings more than 50 years ago watching black and white tv. My friend Johnny Hill and I had a couple of Corgi Highway Patrol police cars (one was a Chevrolet Impala. Can't remember the other one). We would set up road blocks and 'transmit' to each other 2150 to 2646, 10-4 etc. Brilliant.
The DVD is of very good quality and was delivered promptly in excellent condition.
My only criticism is that more than one dvd is put on a holder. Makes getting them out more difficult than it should and increases the chance of scratching a dvd.

All your favorite classic cars, and they were NEW. The quality and clarity of these classics is really incredible.
Crawford tries so hard to be a bad-a**, but spends most of his time looking at maps and figuring out road blocks
on what appears to be an Oregon map. What is noticeable is that the policy of "shoot first" , ask questions later,
appears in every episode. But if we could just go back in time and buy a car or two.

I loved the show but the quality of the packing which led to scratched floating discs was not acceptable. I have 2 shows that will not play on disc 2.

The quality of the DVDs, the stories, the acting, the old cars, trains, buses, motorcycles and helicopters are even better than I remembered. Highway Patrol might be the best syndicated series made in the fifties. The writers wrote excellent episodes each week, using many actors who would go on to fame and fortune....Stewart Whitman, Ruta Lee, Robert Conrad and Peter Breck, to name a few. Highly recommended!
