5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Television June 1, 2012
Format:DVD
I have been buying the series. At first, only the first three seasons had been released, and we fans were extremely disappointed. However, the fourth season was finally released and will come out on 24 July. This series is worth it. By today's standards it may seem quaint, and like any other television series it has its flaws. Television is entertainment designed by a committee. If you view it as 30s noir, however, it is great. It's raw, it's gritty, and it got away with some things that just were not done on television in the day (1959-1963). I cannot say enough about Robert Stack's portrayal of Eliot Ness. He set the mold in which such characters as Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord's portrayal in the original "Hawaii Five-0") and Aaron Hotchner ("Criminal Minds") were later cast. I argue with those critics who said that Robert Stack played Ness as cold, unsmiling, unemotional. Critics never see an entire series, so they miss a lot. In the episodes, we see Ness smiling as he greets an old friend, sharing a joke with Nick Georgiade's Rico Rossi at the expense of a smug (and crooked) banker, weeping openly at the death of one of his team, and in red-hot anger. It's a wonderful portrayal. Robert Stack was not one of those emotive actors; he was much more subtle and conveyed a lot with looks, gestures, and mannerisms (which one fan says Mrs. Eliot Ness said were so like her husband's). The supporting cast is fine, as well, and my particular favorites were and are Nick Georgiade as Rico Rossi and Paul Picerni as Lee Hobson. If you pay attention watching the episodes, you will quickly see that there was a repertory-theatre atmosphere about the series, as some of the finest television and film actors of the day, as well as many well-known character actors, appeared multiple times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series!! January 31, 2013
By Choren
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to watch "The Untouchables" when I was a child. Now that I'm watching them again I can say that this series are really great!! Excellent stories and excellent acting! The dvds are very well protected in their cases. All the series have English and Spanish subtitles. Para mis paisanos: también están dobladas en español neutro (no en castellano como: "jolines tío"), están tal y como las pasaban en canal cuatro! Revive las aventuras de Eliot Ness!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE March 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The original "Untouchables" TV series, starring Robert Stack, and narrated by Walter Winchell, is an example of television at its finest during the late '50s and early '60s. The Show falls into the same category as "The Twilight Zone," with solid acting, guest stars who went on to bigger-and-better roles, and thoughtful production. Compare "The Untouchables" to the meaningless, nonsensical programming today. Of course, fans of contemporary Shows, like "Two-and-a-Half-Men" would think of "The Untouchables" as boring and not very entertaining. It's all relative, I suppose........

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Memories September 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to watch this series when I was a Kid and haven't seen an episode in 50 years. It is great to see this series again. This is a product from an era when Television used to provide great entertainment, not like today as there is nothing worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny I spent on it November 5, 2013
By Deputy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
AWESOME is the only way I can describe this item. I remember watching this series as a kid and these videos bring it all back to me. The picture quality is sharp and clear. The audio is clear with no hissing or other detractions. I'm amazed that they found such a good transfer for DVD. You will not be disappointed if you buy the complete series. It beats ANYTHING on network TV or cable. Yes, there was lots of violence, but that was the reality of living back in that era. It wasn't a "kinder, gentler" time. The Untouchables brings that era back to life. And the black and white filming makes it even more realistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reach Out & Touch May 20, 2014
By Hoosier
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like many Baby Boomers, I remember this four-year series from my childhood, which was resurrected in a comedic fashion by Dan Ackroyd's "Saturday Night Live" impersonation of Robert Stack's portrayal of Eliot Ness (I discount Kevin Costner's role in Brian DePalma's 1987 big screen version, since that was not really an attempt to duplicate or even satirize the original t.v. series). So, it's been a pleasure, so far, reacquainting myself with it through adult eyes. The Wikipedia entry on the t.v. series claims it was criticized at the time as one of the medium's most violent shows and I can see why though, by modern standards of course, it seems tame. It was also, perhaps inevitably, faulted for its supposedly distorted portrayal of the criminal legacy of Italian-Americans (and this a decade before the "Godfather" movies). I especially appreciate the Noirish black and white photography and the narration by Walter Winchel that adds just the right documentary feel to the stories. And what a treat it is to see so many performers who later acheived their own big and small screen fame appear early in their careers here. Highly recommended, if you've got the money to spend on a collection like this. If you don't, why not try robbing a bank or peddling ilicit booze and see whether you can escape being apprehended by the Untouchables?
