The Untouchables (Season 4): Don't believe everything you read ... there is absolutely no drop in quality regarding this last season of an absolutely CLASSIC TV series. It may possibly be considered the lesser of the 4 seasons, but the acting, production values, guest stars ... all contributed to a fantastic and worthy program ... making "The Untouchables" probably one on the BEST classic TV crime-series of all time (ranking right along side "Hawaii Five-0"). It could well be that the Desilu Studio interests began to lose concentration during this final season and began expanding their efforts into other areas. Also, there were probably not too many more stores to be told (exposed) during this brief span of the Eliot Ness chronicles (1929-1933). I would have savored a final fifth season to wrap it all up, but the TV Gods denied that. All in all ... I own all 4 season sets ... and they are at the TOP of my collectible TV favorites (which are quite numerous and varied). This was a one-of-a-kind series and it will always be that. Enjoy and embrace what you will never again experience from a time back when you never expected such greatness.

season 4 was very tame for this series-gunfire was kept at a minimum--thats probably why there was no season 5-very little action and NO frank nitti-the italians finally won out-the politically correct crowd won this one and killed a good show-THIS season did NOT in anyway compare to the other 3--which was action packed--i bought it just to complete the seasons set--but VERY DISAPPOINTED--same goes for vol 2

I read a lot of commentaries about this 4th and last season. And they're problably right but what Desilu did with this show is amazing and the quality of writing is still there. Thanks to CBS, they finally released the 30 last episodes. In France, we have only the three thirst seasons and not this one ! So I enjoy myself to own it and to finish my collection.

Picture : 5/5.
Sound : 3/5.
Extras : 0/5.

For me, "The Untouchables" stay the best TV Show of the 50's. It always reminds me when I was a kid (In France the show was broadcasted in the 70's). Robert Stack will be forever Eliot Ness in my heart and my mind. RIP : a great man and a fantastic actor !

This is very disappointing. I loved the first three seasons, but this is beyond lame. Desilu was using the show to showcase proposed new series: Barbara Stanwyck and Ed Asner tracking missing persons, Dane Clark and John Gabriel as contagious disease investigating doctors and Scott Brady as a one eyed globe trotting reporter.. All dominate the episodes they're in and it's a waste.

There's a few goodies. Frank Nitti returns in a later episode and makes you realize how important Bruce Gordon is to the show. Lee Marvin, James Caan and Roy Thinnes star as brothers in a great episode. The best, though, is when the ever present Nehemiah Persoff returns as Jake Guzik to team up with Harry Morgan as Bugsy Moran. But these great moments, so prevalent in the first three seasons, are just too few in this volume.

I love the show, even though CBS/Paramount butchered seasons 2 & 3! Season 4..... I love the show....HATE the MUSIC! What happened here? Is this bogus music on Season 4? It's so fast and very loud and sharp like a new digital remake!?! It is very intrusive in many scenes and gets in the way of Walter Winchell's narration at times. It's like Nelson Riddle on steroids! I find it hard to believe they would have changed the original music so drastically for the 4th season in 1962! I have only watched the beginning episodes of Part One Untouchables: The Fourth Season, Vol. 1, but I imagine Part Two will be similar. There is no mention of music substitution on the case of Part One, but on Part Two it is stated that the music may not be the music used on broadcast episodes! I may be wrong and this may be really was used for Season 4. The opening is very shoddy also! There is a sort of storybook title and a few flimsy stills of guest actors and Robert Stack. This also looks like a substitution ripoff! I don't know if any hanky panky was committed here but I would appreciate any comments and info on this by Untouchables fans!
