Universal has announced the entire series of "McMillan and Wife", all 6 seasons (although the last didn't feature Susan Saint James) comes to DVD on October 18, 2011 and features all forty 90 minute telefilms as the series was more like a movie-of-the-week that aired on a rotating basis on NBC Sunday nights with "Columbo" and "McCloud". This was really the last great acting gig Rock Hudson ever did although he would state in later years he hated doing the series because he didn't like the scripts. He and Saint James remained close friends until the day he died in 1985.

Unfortunately, like the individual box sets there are no bonus features, but the telefilms look impeccable and have been restored to pristine condition.

The following is a list of all 40 telefilms of "McMillan and Wife" along with their airdates:

1. "Once Upon a Deadman", Sept. 17, 1971
2. "Murder by the Barrel, Sept. 29, 1971
3. "The Easy Sunday Murder Case", Oct. 20, 1971
4. "Husbands, Wives, and Killers", Nov. 10, 1971
5. "Death Is a Seven Point Favorite", Dec. 8, 1971
6. "The Face of Murder", Jan. 5, 1972
7. "'Til Death Do Us Part", Feb. 16, 1972
8. "An Elementary Case of Murder", March 1, 1972
9. "The Night of the Wizard", Sept. 24, 1972
10. "Blues for Sally M". Oct. 22, 1972
11. "Cop of the Year", Nov. 19, 1972
12. "Terror Times Two", Dec. 13, 1972
13. "No Hearts, No Flowers", Jan. 14, 1973
14. "The Fine Art of Staying Alive", March 11, 1973
15. "Two Dollars on Trouble to Win", April 1, 1973
16. "Death of a Monster...Birth of a Legend", Sept. 30, 1973
17. "The Devil, You Say", Oct 21, 1973
18. "Free Fall To Terror", Nov. 11, 1973
19. "The Man Without a Face", Jan. 6, 1974
20. "Reunion in Terror", Jan.

Whine Whine Whine - Season One was released in 2005, 7 years later you are complaining that the rest of the series is being released? You should be clapping that the rest of the series is coming out!

This was a great show, Netflix had many of the seasons available to stream for awhile and I enjoyed watching them immensely! I can't wait to get the complete series in my hands. I will donate the Season One set I bought 6 years ago to my local library so that others can enjoy it as much as I did!

Buying from VEI and saving some cash! It ships from Canada, and won't be here in time for Christmas, but for a fifty dollar savings, I'll wait.

Will review sometime after Dec 25th!

Well, it finally came! It's great to watch this classic series again! Starting with Season 3 the Henry Mancini "NBC Mystery Movie" theme starts each episode. You remember that, it goes something like Ewww Weeee Ooooooo. There is a guy walking with a flashlight on an "orange" cloudy night and he moves it in different directions to reveal different shows like Columbo, McCloud, McMillan and Wife, etc.
I am thoroughly enjoying the series. The video quality varies from episode to episode, but they are all entirely watchable. Season One was quite pristine, but they probably used the masters from the Universal release. It is definitely time to get rid of my Universal S1 "FLIPPER" discs.

I got mine directly from VEI in Canada for $99.99 + $2.98 shipping as a gift from Amazon Marketplace, so that is why I am not Amazon verified, I don't see them listed anymore as a vendor, that's too bad. This is a great set, pick it up. The box is cool and you get the Complete Series of "The Snoop Sisters" as a bonus.

For those of you who have not seen Macmillan and Wife you're missing a real treat. This show was on about a million years ago with a movie star idol - Rock Hudson--at the time the handsomest man alive. Unfortunately Mr. Hudson died of Aids years ago and we lost an icon; this show shows you why!
The premise of the show is that 'Rock' is a 'top cop' and want it or not his wife (Susan St James) manages to entail herself in each story and become 'super cop's super detective' whether he likes it or not.
I adored this show and always loved all his movies but Rock was a real treat to behold in this show as was his sidekick and a trusty housekeeper (neither of which you would recognize if you aren't as old as me (LOL).
I do feel a bit cheated because the very last season Susan disappeared from the show with a one line explanation about a plane crash. This is the fifth series where one of the major stars just goes off into the sunset and I was not happy about that at all.
It is a cop show, it is a mystery show, it is a comedy romance show and a comedy/drama romance show and all of those mixed up in one big terrific series I couldn't stop watching--I laughed, I cried and I laughed some more. Every single show was a winner and though I paid a pretty hefty penny for this series it was well worth it for I know I'll go back and watch it again; yep, it's that good!!!!!!!!!
So check it out - the whole series or season by season whichever sells for the best price. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

Five stars for the series, a cozy, classic and very fun "Thin Man revisited" on the 70's, with a marvellous chemistry between Hudson and Saint James. Maybe a bit predictable sometimes, but absolutely charming. Lack of extras, but good image and sound (and "The Snoop Sisters" complete series as an interesting gift included in the box)

But.... one star for amazon. ONCE AGAIN AMAZON LIE IN PRODUCT DETAILS IN ORDER TO INCREASE SALES. This box appears as "SUBTITLED", and IT ISN'T. NO SDH, NO ENGLISH SUBS, NOTHING. SHAME ON YOU, AMAZON!
