The Steve Canyon Special Edition DVD is, in a word, fantastic! These four selected episodes are as sharp, crisp and clear as any DVD releases of television shows from that period that I've seen. Even perfectionists should find nothing to complain about. If these represent episodes that are not yet "fully restored," the final release of the entire series, fully restored, should be nothing short of spectacular. Even if you are sure that you'll buy the complete series, you should pick up this sampler. It will whet your appetite for more, and you will be contributing to the restoration expenses for the remaining 30 episodes.

"Steve Canyon" is one of the things that inspired me to become an aerospace engineer (my other inspirations were the "Men Into Space" television series, Chesley Bonestell's astronomical art and the "Sky Masters of the Space Force" comic strip). Watching these four episodes was a most enjoyable trip back in time for me. I still vividly remember a couple of episodes that are not on this Special Edition DVD, and I'm very anxious to see how accurate my memory is when the full series is released. If you've ever even heard the words "Steve" and "Canyon" used together, you need this DVD.

Kudos to John Ellis of the Milton Caniff Estate and to everyone working on this project. This DVD brought back a lot of pleasant memories for this baby boomer, and I'm waiting most impatiently for the rest of the show. I give it my highest possible recommendation.

This really is a cause for rejoicing (considering the time of the year!) also the news that the 36 episode series will follow next year, the return of Steve Canyon in beautifully, crisp, clean, fully-restored episodes. I have the promo dvd here and the Milton Caniff Estate is to be congratulated on a terrific job.I have always wanted this series ever since I was a kid, the theme of Walter Schumann (Dragnet) with that shot of the planes' underbelly as it took off is something I've always remembered. Star Dean Fredericks is most credible in the title role and the Caniff Estate has promised a documentary on him when the full series arrives next year. there is a restoration doco on this disc and a promo short that is very interesting also. I eagerly await the release, next year of the rest of the episodes, cause they'll be going into my collection, that's for sure.

Wow, my boyfriend has always talked about "Steve Canyon". If you're a fan of old TV shows or an airplane freak, this is great. The plots and storylines are not exceptional except that some are unique to the time period, but the best aspect to me is to the old aircraft (they used actual military clips for many takeoff and flight scenes) and to see the changes we've made in history in the last 50 or so years. No more cold war!! Women's rights? ERA may not have passed but we've come a long way, baby. I'm happy to sit back and watch these shows and enjoy the old planes, while I laugh at the old lifestyles.
This DVD set is specifically to raise money to have the whole Steve Canyon series remastered and released. I can't wait and I'm glad to have contributed to the effort. I might need to by more copies for my uncles and brothers!!

For anyone who are fans of anything Cold War era related, this is a must! Rarely (if ever) seen since it was first released, this is a top notch production and not cartoonish in any sense of the word.

Don't be skeptical about the restoration either - it too was professionally done and is crisp, sharp, and clean as a whistle. Don't expect too many "commercials" for products but you will see a few as well as promotional spots for other TV shows aired on ABC, the re-run syndication network which these prints are mostly from.

Get yourself a copy today as these sales of the sampler will determine the complete season episode release later 2008. You won't regret it.

I loved the Steve Canyon show when I was a kid back in the pleistocene so seeing Amazon offering the "Steve Canyon Special Edition DVD," I jumped at it. I had problems with the DVD and contacted Amazon. They sent me a new copy. Same problem, so they refunded my money. I contacted the maker at [...] about the problem. The gentleman who heads the "Steve Canyon" TV project was good enough to send me a new copy; same problem. In an e-mail this morning (I read it at oh-dark-thirty), he suggested I try it in a computer; I had never thought of this. I popped the DVD into my daughter's HP desktop and there was beauty!

The folks at Amazon.com and the Milton Caniff Estate are very kind to idiots (even those vaguely bright enough to keep their fingers from between the rocks when they hit them together).

Next week, I'm buying a laptop from Amazon (the explosion and column of smoke from this direction will just be me getting used to the new technology) and will be buying the "Steve Canyon" volumes when they're released.

Amazon.com's service is wonderful!

As an former Cold War Warrrior and baby boomer who grew up with the Steve Canyon series, I can heartily recommend this DVD. I can also hardly wait for the entire series to be released later this year. Part of my obsession with airplanes and my continuing 30 year career in aviation is directly attrituable to Steve Canyon, and the Blue Angels series that aired during the 50's. While the acting may seem simplistic, the basic theme of the series is refreshingly nationalistic, something sorely missing from TV and Hollywood today. Buy this DVD, buy the series when it comes out, and see how the Air Force and the Cold War was portrayed back when your baby boomer father, mother, grandfather and grandmother were kids. Now all I need is a "Steve Canyon" flight helmet like the one my dad bought me when I was a kid.
