Many great actors had parts in episodes of this show.
Bob
The show is a window into New York and social mores of the 1960's---a fascinating look at some of the best writing and acting ever seen on American television.
Martin L
The physical set itself is a nice plastic slim hardcase five-disc pack.

10 of the episodes in this 20 episode set were released by Image Entertainment between 2003-2006. The same 10 are included in the 40 episode set being released in January. The other 10 are new to dvd-Sweet Prince of Delancy Street, Down the Long Night, To Walk in Silence, Tombstone for a Derelict, Bullets Cost Too Much, Prime of Life, Lady Bug Lady Bug, One of the Most Important Men in the Whole World, Line of Duty, The Pedigree Sheet. I don't understand why Image isn't releasing complete season sets of Naked City but, I'll probably purchase this release in order to see 10 more episodes I've never seen. Love this show!

Seven years ago I fell in love with Naked City reruns on TV. So I bought the three Series of Naked City releases by Image Entertainment. The good news was that they chose some great episodes. The bad news was that, rather than releasing full seasons, they put together compilations. My bad for not reading the description more carefully. On the other hand, you take what you can get when you love a classic TV show. Naked City - Set 1 [TV-Series 1958-1963], Naked City - Set 2 and Naked City - Set 3. In addition to the collections they also released a plethora of single episode DVDs.

OK, so we fast-forward five to seven years and, lo and behold, Image Entertainment is releasing not one but two "new" Naked City compilations: "Best of Naked City" and "Naked City: 20 Star-Filled Episodes." But are they new? No, not really. At least not completely. Many, if not most, of the episodes were already released in the sets that I already have. I say "appears" because they make it something of a challenge to see just what they've already released and what is newly released. As best I can tell about half of this set has already been released in the three compilations I already have. But there do appear to be about ten new episodes.

The later seasons of NAKED CITY are celebrated, and rightly so, but the original, one-season incarnation (actually called THE NAKED CITY) with James Franciscus and John McIntire is a gem in its own right, thanks in part to those two actors. Stirling Silliphant, later of ROUTE 66 and the film IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT (among much else), wrote both episodes featured here. I believe he wrote all or most of the first season. These two episodes (one features Peter Falk, the other Diane Ladd) have a poetic if dated feel, but they are a snapshot of both New York in the late '50s and the artistic aspirations of the best TV creative talent of the day. I would hope the entire season would finally be released (the previous releases all focus on the later verison).

When I was about nine or so my grandfather would get home from work and watch with me a television line-up that included Kojak and The Naked City. I loved both programs, but there was always something about the early Sixties black and white TNC that was all engrossing - like a box of chocolates, you never knew what you were going to get, except that it was always going to be good.

Until I received this ten disc set last week I hadn't seen TNC in over 30 years. I had fond memories but no clear recollection of the series format. So I'm delighted to say that each episode follows the lives of any one of the eight million New Yorkers the opening credits mention and at times it seems like the inclusion of the three police detectives are virtually incidental. At other times one would imagine Mike, Adam and Frank only investigate cases brought to them by close friends and family!

Similar concurrent "story oriented" programs that are still popular today, like the Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock Presents", will seem positively mainstream in comparison with TNC. TNC is often existential, and there is a dream like quality to many episodes I've seen now. Characters pour their souls into the dialogue - they say the things we never would have the nerve to in real life, with their hearts and minds open - painfully so. Being a drama, it is appropriate that each major character seems like a walking talking raw nerve, but the honesty in their portrayals goes beyond what is required to entertain and demands a response from the audience.
