5.0 out of 5 stars ONLY FOR UNSUB August 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
Unsub: "A special team of FBI forensics experts investigates serial murderers and other unsolved violent crimes."

I only purchased this box set for the 8 episodes of the TV series Unsub. I recorded the episodes off TV when I was in my teens but I am so happy to finally have them on DVD...something I never thought would happen. Unsub was a crime show way ahead of its time and it's such a shame it never got off the ground...much more realistic than the CSI show's on TV these days.

I watched the episodes over and over on I can do the same on DVD.

Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great to have UNSUB, but... November 1, 2012
I bought this set mainly for UNSUB, though I've enjoyed some of the other shows here and will eventually watch most all of them. However, having taped UNSUB when it aired on NBC, I was disappointed to find that the stereo soundtracks from the original broadcast are here all in mono. So much atmosphere gets lost by downgrading the sound. I can't say for sure about all the shows (I know HERO was too early for stereo), but BROKEN BADGES also aired in stereo but is here transferred in mono. (These broadcasts were genuine stereo too, not someone creating fake stereo from a mono track.) That's my reason for knocking the rating down to three stars. No other complaints with the set but the audio is a disappointment.

I like others bought this for David Soul in Unsub.
I had never heard or seen it before. This was the
original CSI except much better! The writing and
story telling is done superb. I guess this show
was ahead of it's time people just didn't like it.
I wish they had more than 8 episodes. The other
rare shows never released are not bad but not
as good. The commish, wiseguy, hunter and
tenspeed and brownshoe are all good shows
you can get on dvd. buy this for Unsub.
note: commish pilot uses the same exact
plot as UNSUB's 2 part show about 2 kids
missing axed and burned in a tub and
buried in the country! Cannell didn't
mind reusing old scripts. great episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prime Time Crime...Cannell July 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
This was a great find for me. I loved all these shows when they ran on TV and having so many of them in one bundle has been wonderful. One of my "best buys" in DVD history.

This was a gift for my mother. She just loved "Silk Stalkings", and I wanted her to be able to watch it anytime she wanted. She loves it, and eventhough it was used, it was in great condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed!!! December 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
I picked this rating based on how I think about the 'author and the different series he wrote in the collection, which, to me, demonstrate an ability that many authors don't possess, the ability to write multiple series and make all of them 'unique.'
