I was amazed that early to mid 50's B/W Dragnet programs still are very much viewable. I enjoyed the scenic views, street scenes, old automobiles, clothes styles, etc. as much as the plots in the programs themselves. One can't help notice how the culture has changed. Smoking, smoking, smoking - I was almost 'choking' on the memories of how 'dirty' our workplace air used to be. I only wish that Sgt Ben Romero's few presentations could have been included. But overall, this is a very good trip down memory lane for us old-timers. The only irritant for me was the repetitive bars of music played leading in and out of each episode - which was different than what I remember as classic Dragnet music. Thank you for the good times.

I love Dragnet and I loved watching every single show on this DVD set. The only thing for me was that there were only 30 episodes and the 4th disc was a bonch of other detective shows. But hey, I got the rest. Good quality for a good price !

I like Dragnet & for less than $10, this is a good buy. It's not a bloody/guts show & has logic that helps you to try to solve the case. The characters are caring but professional police officers. It is obvious that the show appears to have cigarette sponsors since the police smoke often but they seem to be anti-crime/pranks. The package is in a tin case with 4 DVD's--3 disks with 10 episodes each of Dragnet [all titles starting with the word "Big"] & the 4th with other police shows that were also good. The episodes are listed below.

DVD 1 --ALL titles start with the word "Big" on all 3 discs or dvd's

1 Big September Man
2 Big Seventeen
3 Big Show
4 Big Break
5 Big Hands
6 Big Betty
7 Big Thief
8 Big Little Jesus
9 Big Trunk
10 Boys

DVD 2 --ALL titles start with the word "Big"

1 Big Shoplift
2 Hit-run killer
3 Girl
4 Frame
5 Producer
6 Crime
7 Pair
8 Bar
9 War
10 Oskar

DVD 3 --ALL titles start with the word "Big"

1 Big Cast
2 Phone call
3 Casing
4 Lamp
5 .22 Rifle for Christmas
6 Grandma
7 Hate
8 Frank
9 False make
10 New Years

DVD 4

Racket Squad
1 The Case of the sweet charity
2 Home wreckers
3 Any one can be a sucker
4 One more dream

Follow that Man
5 Fuller's Folly
6 The doll bandit
7 The polecat shakedown
8 Murder in the rough

Federal Men
9 The gentleman cheat
10 The green feathers
11 The tight squeeze
12 The slippery eel

I hope this helps you to make a wise choice. At the time, this appeared to be the best of the "Dragnet" options available.

My dad is a big fan of old cop and detective shows. He watches Columbo with Peter Falk, Hawaii Five-O with Jack Lord, and Dragnet with Jack Webb. He's a manly-man, and enjoys watching these men of action make a difference in their world (fictional as it may be). My dad is also analitically-minded and he likes these shows because they make sense and he can try solving it before the end of the episode. Unlike a lot of today's crime shows where you can't follow the clues because it's all about the gadgets and improbable conjecture theories versus the facts. In Dragnet, the cops use the forensics as evidence in their case, not as a crutch. This is a great gift for fans of crime shows young and old.

This is a bad patchwork of many of the already available episodes with a hokey musical track added. The sound quality is poor and many of the episodes have no end credits. The set is filled out with Ralph Bellamy's "Follow That Man" which is lousy no matter how you slice it as is the Reed Hadley opus "Racket Squad" and the and the equally poor "U.S. Treasury in Action". Save your money...

My wife and son gave me this for Christmas, The "BIG" collection would be "Every" Dragnet episode. There were nearly 300 originals from the 1950s and this is but a small part, I love (and loved) the show as I remember the originals in the 50s but was also disappointed the music has been dubbed over with some other theme that is NOT the classic Dragnet theme. I assume a licensing issue but was hoping for more when I unwrapped and saw the box. I give the series a five star as it is a great window to the past but the present repackaging of the series is a three star.

I'm such a Dragnet fan. I thought the quality was good considering how old these episodes are. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. The case is actually metal, giving the disks extra protection.
