Format: DVD
Danger Man is a compelling, interesting and complex spy show that consciously strives for realism at every possible level. Varied locals, dangerous opposition and a dynamic lead all combine to create a show where, as one of the episode titles claims, "Parallel Lines Sometimes Meet."

This comprehensive set contains all four seasons of the show Danger Man; the first season of half-hour shows and the second, third and fourth seasons of the hour-long shows. (The fourth season consists of only two episodes, both filmed in color)

The main character in the show is a man named Drake, John Drake. In the first season (half-hour episodes) he is an Irish American agent employed by NATO to tackle their `messy jobs.' In the later seasons (hour-long episodes) he has lost his slightly American accent and now works for the British Government in Special Branch, M9 specifically. Though John Drake's character remains intact through changes between the first and later seasons, there is obvious character development that takes place over the first to second season hiatus.

John Drake, as he appears in the first season of half-hour episodes, is a young, cool, efficient agent. He is bold, quick thinking and moves fast--he has to. The time constraints of the show limit any excess time or trouble. The shows are fairly uncomplicated, but for the most part quite interesting. Drake is very involved in the repercussions of his work and regularly confronts his superiors with the possible consequences of his orders. Drake has a much more personal voice in these episodes, as occasional voice-overs allow us to get inside his head and understand what he is seeing.

Growing up I always liked to watch Secret Agent (Man). We always added the word "Man" to the title because of the song "Secret Agent Man" (they're giving you a number and taking away your name).
What I like about the program, after years of reflecting on it, but didn't realize as a child, was the moral outlook of John Drake. He differed from James Bond. He was bold, brave, and acted on the situation, but he had morals. You could see that he was not the amoral, uncaring secret agent. He struggled to do the right thing. Many times he uses brain over the gun. He was a good role model to follow. Many times when his superiors said the person was not the primary concern of the mission but national security was, John Drake differed and made the person involved the primary concern. Nor was he seduced by a beautiful woman. He was romantic, but always kept clear of sexual liasons. He proved you could be a dynamic, caring, and loyal person without ending up in bed with the enemy.
I never saw "Danger Man" as a child, that I can remember, so this collection with the "Danger Man" part of John Drakes life is great. It is like getting new episodes.

Patrick McGoohan probably was the only one who could portray John Drake, given his moral upbringing and his strict contract signing conditions for this series. In McGoohan eyes, John Drake had to be a very moral man. He turned down the role of James Bond and similar characters because of the moral issues. Here he shows the morality of John Drake. McGoohan shows this aspect in the opening of the sequel to "Secret Agent", "The Prisoner." The opening of "The Prisoner" shows a secret agent quiting because of the moral ramifications of the job. His bosses don't understand this aspect and try to find out why he defected.

If I had to choose my all time favorite show, it would be this, as well as its 30 minute predecessor. It is a perfectly realized spy show and the stories have not dated. McGoohan had tremendous screen charisma and intelligence, neither of which can be faked. He made a few movies and was exceptional in those as well, but true superstardom eluded him for reasons I could never understand. If you're thinking about buying this series, I could not give it a stronger recommendation. McGoohan followed this show with his more famous "The Prisoner" which I also give 5 stars to, but I think Secret Agent is even better. You'll love it and watch it many times over.

Don't get the other megaset confused with this one - this is the real deal. Every episode of the series is on the DVD set, not just half! The quality is great and rather compact since they used the thin cases.

The audio and video quality of the Secret Agent/Danger Man megaset is outstanding and A&E home video should be commended for their efforts. The Black & White video transfer contains some minor blemishes here and there, but overall the picture quality is excellent. The 2.0 sound is clear and consistent throughout the episodes. The set consists of 18 single sided discs in individual slim cases with great artwork and detail. You get every episode of the Secret Agent / Danger Man series in broadcast order, including the two final episodes of the show in color. If you like characters like James Bond and the "Saint" than John Drake as Secret Agent / Danger Man may be for you. DVD Features and Episodes of the set are listed below:

* Available Audio Tracks: English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo)
