Product Description

In Season 2, Chief Ironside's crack team includes Sgt. Ed Brown, Don Galloway, ex con turned assistant Mark Sanger, Don Mitchell, and beautiful policewoman Eve Whitfield, Barbara Anderson, who won an Emmy for this role. With superb story lines dealing with socially important topics like racism, drugs, abortion, and terror on a college campus, Ironside’s second season continued the tradition of attracting special guest stars including Milton Berle, Anne Baxter, Bill Bixby, Ricardo Montalban, Burgess Meredith, Ed Asner and many more.

The toughest cop on four wheels returns with this seven-disc set containing all 26 episodes from the second season (1968-69) of Ironside. Of course, that also means that Raymond Burr is back in the title role, portraying a former San Francisco chief of detectives who returned to the force as a consultant following the shooting that left him wheelchair-bound (also returning are his core team, including Don Galloway as Detective Sgt. Ed Brown, Barbara Anderson as Officer Eve Whitfield, and Don Mitchell as Mark Sanger, Ironside's bodyguard and driver). As ever, Burr's Robert Ironside is one of the more distinctive characters on the cop show landscape. Gruff, stubborn, impatient, and utterly unwilling to suffer fools, he commands respect with a combination of tough love and unwavering fairness. There's nothing touchy-feely about this guy. Take "Split Second to an Epitaph," a two-parter near the start of the season. When Ironside regains sensation in his feet, a doctor advises him to immediately undergo an operation that could heal him for good. But the chief refuses to go under the knife as long as the team's current case is unsolved. When he finally shows up at the hospital and another paraplegic asks him how to cope with his disability, Ironside replies, "It starts out as pure hell. Then it gets worse." And when the doc asks him what he'll do should he be able to walk again, the answer is classic Ironside: "Probably sit down." The second season's episodes run a fairly wide gamut, dealing with issues ranging from black militancy (in "Robert Phillips vs. the Man," Ironside refuses to submit either to Paul Winfield's hostile taunts or to the white racists eager to jail the black leader for murder) and professional sports (in "The Tormentor," a baseball player is threatened by an extortionist) to abortion ("A Matter of Love and Death" finds Eve posing as a pregnant young single in order to flush out a criminal abortionist--these were the days before Roe v. Wade) and boorish TV talk show demagogues (Milton Berle in a decidedly non-comic role in "I, The People"). There are also a few more personal stories than were found in Season One (Eve falls in love in one episode and hovers near death following a shooting in another, while Mark continues his quest to become a lawyer). That's all good, but like other series of its era, Ironside often seems rather dated; you'll find folks smoking in hospitals (and, in Ironside's case, having a couple of stiff drinks, with his doctor's approval, the night before his operation), star athletes struggling to put together a $100,000 payoff (a hundred grand is about what waterboys make these days), and gigantic American-made cars easily finding street parking spaces in downtown San Francisco. But while such details can be written off as mere anachronisms, the show's cheesy sets, slow-moving action and overall lack of genuine tension are more problematic. In the end, though, Ironside is mostly driven by its star power--not only Burr's, but also guests like Berle, Winfield, Broderick Crawford, Joseph Cotten, Clu Gulager, Diane Ladd, Ricardo Montalban, Anne Baxter, Ed Asner, Burgess Meredith, and Chad Everett. There are no bonus features in the box set. --Sam Graham

The wheelchair-bound San Francisco Chief Robert T. Ironside, paralyzed by a would-be assassin's bullet, is back for another season of exciting and thought-provoking episodes in this award winning Classic TV Detective series. Second season episodes, from 1968, continues the high quality writing and acting that was the hallmark of this show through its five year run. Stories run the gamut from racial strife, fortune telling to the shooting of one of Ironside's team members!

"Ironside" was one of the best detective shows of the 1960s and remains a classic of its genre. Memorable characters, brilliant acting, well-crafted stories and unforgettable theme music written by the legendary Quincy Jones, "Ironside" brought the beloved actor Raymond Burr back to series TV after a nine year Hall of Fame portrayal of the most famous lawyer in TV history: Perry Mason. The series was created by Collier Young. The decision to make Burr disabled was remarkable for the era, as few TV leads were ever depicted as anything but able bodied and still are not.

Determined not to be trapped in his wheelchair or give up his career, Ironside volunteers to work within the police department as a "special department consultant." Ironside drafts two young law enforcement officers, Detective Sgt. Ed Brown, portrayed by Don Galloway, and Officer Eve Whitfield, portrayed by Barbara Anderson. He also hired delinquent-turned-bodyguard Mark Sanger, portrayed by Don Mitchell, as his "legs." During the series, Sanger, an African-American with a chip on his shoulder and a hatred for the police, eventually went to law school and became an attorney.

I read a review somewhere that tells that the second season of "Ironside" was weak. I wholeheartedly disagree. Mind you it started off with "Shell Game" which was the weakest of all the second season. It makes up with the 2 part episode "Split Second To an Epitath", also "Desparate Encounter" which is downright intense, "I The People" is a terrific showcase which showcases Milton Berle in a drama, and he proves he can straddle comedy, and drama, and also can write a really good script, "Why The Tuesday Afternoon Bridge Club Met on Thursday" is a bit hokey with a bunch of elderly ladies helping Ironside, but creating a story line where the Dr. Crippen murder from 1910 was a stroke of genius, "Obvious Case of Guilt" is a mindbender where you don't know what's going to happen next, "A Drug On The Market" is probably the most intense episode on this collection I know that when I heard the voices I was a bit spooked, and finally on Disc 7 It ends with "Not With a Whimper, but With a Bang". I am now going to look over Season 1, and can't wait for Season 3 to come out on dvd.

Ironside - Season 2

A great series that brings back memories of a better time and place.
I watched this show every week with my parents and siblings.
Families did things together back then. It was a fantastic time to be a kid.

Ex-Chief of Detectives Robert T. Ironside, is wheelchair bound after surviving an attempted assassination. He now serves as a special consultant to the San Francisco police department. His staff consists of detective sergeant Ed Brown (Don Galloway), officer Eve Whitfield (Barbara Anderson) and personal aide Mark Sanger (Don Mitchell).

The Ironside team is like a family unit. It couldn't exist today, and perhaps not even then, but it is the package viewers are asked to buy. A group seldom acts and reacts as quickly as an individual, and the stories often have a deliberate pace, with Ed and Eve handling most of the legwork. The Chief can move quickly in a crisis, but it's not how he normally operates. Ironside has more of a thinking man's approach, looking for leads to a trail, and then following through with dogged determination. There usually aren't a myriad of suspects to consider, and the focus is often on the episode's one or two main guest stars.

The writers did a good job in the first season of establishing and building up the Ironside mystique, while also including intriguing episodes that featured the staff in some personal crisis, such as when Eve kills for the first time in the line of duty, or when Mark's date turns up dead of an overdose in a public bathroom. Ironside himself falls in love with an amnesia victim. With a colorful palate already established, the bar was set pretty high for season two. And the writers respond with a nice variety of stories, blending pure crime episodes, with those with a personal angle, or off beat slant.

Among the notable is `Desperate Encounter' where The Chief and Mark stumble into a dangerous situation in a small town, and Ironside demonstrates that although in a wheelchair, he is not to be underestimated.

Growing up I watched a ton of Cop shows on TV.S.W.A.T.,Baretta,The Streets of San Francisco,The Rookies,Starsky & Hutch,McMillan and Wife and My Favorite: Columbo.Luckily these series have begun to make their way to DVD.On Dec.18,07 comes the 1st Season (Vol. 1....Don't You hate when the season is broken into volumes !!??!!?? I hate it !)of The Mod Squad.
During the late '60's-early '70's I never watched Ironside. I don't know why.About 3 years ago I came across repeats of Ironside on a local Albany,NY station.It aired early Sat. and Sun. mornings at 3am.I watched one episode and was hooked.Every Sat. & Sun. am there I was watching Ironside.Then after about 5 to 6 weeks after discovering this gem.the station replaced Ironside with Perry Mason episodes.Soon afterward I learned of the upcoming DVD release of Season 1.
With Raymond Burr in the lead role of Chief Robert Ironside.The series brings great expectations after His Film career & many, many years as Perry Mason.His relatively unknown co-stars,Don Galloway,Barbara Anderson and Don Mitchell played off well against the veteran,Burr.
Taking on the topical issues of the day,racism,abortion & the growing drug culture, Season 2 is a strong follow up to the 1st.The 2nd Season attracted a lot of great TV & Film Actors,Joseph Cotton,Burgess Meredith & Bill Bixby among them. A couple of standout episodes are A Matter of Love and Death,where Eve goes undercover to find an Abortionist responsible for a young Girl's death, and I the People, guest starring Milton Berle,who even wrote the episode.It was way ahead of it's time with Berle as a talk show host (much like Morton Downey Jr.)who angers a viewer enough to want to kill Him.
