Take away the jerky camera movements, the MTV style pacing, the overt sexuality and the special effects that not only show a person getting shot, but follow the bullet through the body, and what do today's detective shows have? Nothing. Shows like Barnaby Jones had stories, and the people who made the shows knew how to tell the story.
When I was a kid, shows like Barnaby Jones were the grown up shows you loved to be able to stay up to watch. Now, grown up shows border on the perverse. In the 70's, my sainted mom and dad took us to visit Cooperstown, New York. It was a treat to be able to stay up late and watch a show like Barnaby Jones, while nibbling on Chicken in a Bisquet crackers (back then, that was one of the unusual crackers. Now, there's a million varieties). Now that my wife bought me the DVD from Amazon, I intend to watch Barnaby Jones, savoring not just the nostalgia, but the quality. I already have a box of Chicken in a Bisquet crackers to nibble on during the show, and I'm counting on my mom and dad to be looking down and watching with me, from Heaven.

For the first time, fan favorite Barnaby Jones is coming to DVD in a boxed set collecting the first season of the Classic TV detective series.

After years of fans wanting and waiting, our patience has finally been rewarded! This 662-minute DVD set brings all 13 the episodes as originally broadcast, in full screen video and English mono sound. They are also closed captioned. It's being released by CBS/Paramount, and while I've not yet seen the set, it's reportedly been carefully remastered, and contains all of the original musical cues.

Buddy "Beverly Hillbillies" Ebsen plays the tile role, while Lee "Batman, Time Tunnel" Meriwether portrays his daughter-in-law, Betty Jones. Barnaby heads his LA firm, while Betty provides him with invaluable assistance.

The Classic TV detective series aired on CBS from Jan. 28, 1973, to April 3, 1980. It premiered as a midseason replacement show, shaking up the CBS lineup by taking the timeslot of the Iconic Classic TV detective series Mannix, pushing it back to air one hour before the new kid on the block. Because of that, there were fewer episodes produced in its first season.

The Barnaby Jones character was introduced in 1973 in an episode in the third-season of the Classic TV detective series, Cannon, entitled, "The Deadly Conspiracy." The two-part episode began on Cannon and concluded on the premiere of Barnaby Jones with "Requiem for a Son."

An aging Barnaby had decided to retire and had left the private investigation business to his son, Hal. The now-grieving Barnaby decides to take the advice of his friend, Frank Cannon (William Conrad, in the cross-over from the show Cannon), to come out of retirement and solve the case in the pilot episode, "Requiem for a Son.

Buddy Ebsen played Jed Clampett for nine seasons on The Beverly Hillbillies (1962 through 1971). Anyone familiar with the series' theme song, The Ballad of Jed Clampett, is probably aware that Jed struck oil on his property while out hunting, became a millionaire, and moved with his family to Beverly Hills. Ebsen, who up to this time, was mostly known for his dancing skills, played the grizzled, humble, and down to Earth mountain man, who was completely clueless, and out of his element in the big city. While Jed was ignorant about some things, he was wise in others, honest as the day was long, and also one hell of a shot with a gun. As the Clampett clan's moral conscience, Jed taught life lessons, and tried to show that doing what was right and fair, was the way to go.

Ebsen was 62, when The Beverly Hillbillies ended, but he was far from ready to hang it up. Crime shows were very popular, and in 1973 Ebsen made his debut as investigator Barnaby Jones on Quinn Martin's private eye series Cannon, before quickly launching the character into his own series. When his son Hal, a private investigator, is murdered, Barnaby decides to look into the case, aided by daughter-in-law Betty Jones, played by the lovely Lee Meriwether (Time Tunnel). After solving the case, Barnaby decides to continue as a private investigator.

Because of his age, fights, chases, and physically demanding stunts were mostly out, and Jones usually relied on his intelligence, experience, persistence, and forensic skills, to solve cases. There seems to be a lot of Jed Clampett in Barnaby Jones. Soft spoken, possessing a similar sage wisdom, and strong moral fiber, the tall and affable Jones, carried himself with great dignity.

It was almost two and a half years ago when season 1 came out. I have been anxiously awaiting season 2 ever since.

This show was just hitting its stride during the last two or three episodes of season 1. The best is yet to come.

When will we be seeing it????

I remembered watching this as a kid and loved it, remembered the characters and style and song but you really never know until you watch it now, if it's as good as you remember, or just fond memories of a simpler time. I love it!! I agree with everyone who says it....too much money for 13 eps...but at least it's not a half season!

I really loved watching it at bedtime, it's a great mystery/crime show...and loved that that Cannon was a cross over in the first episode.

UPDATE:

NOW I'M DEPRESSED! IT'S OVER, WATCHED THEM ALL, NOW I'M LEFT FLOUNDERING IN THE "WILL THERE BE MORE" ZONE WHICH AS ALL FANS OF ALL SHOWS KNOW, IS THE SECOND WORST PLACE TO BE (WORST OF COURSE IS, THERE'S NO MORE FOR SURE). IT WON'T LIKELY TAKE LONG TO ENTER THE "FRUSTRATED" ZONE WHERE I START REMINISCING ABOUT ALL THE GREAT DVD RELEASES THAT NEVER RELEASED A SECOND SEASON - OR WE WAITED 4 YEARS FOR A 2ND SEASON AND THEN THEY GAVE UP BEFORE WE COULD GET THE REST OF THE SERIES...

I can only hope Barnaby Jones goes the way of Vega$, only a few months later we were notified of the second set release date - as opposed to Quincy which took years and years, and Taxi, years and years for the final season, or Charlie's Angels, or worst of all Family where we never got anymore after the first set, or Knots Landing where they tested a second set years later and then almost immediately announced they weren't planning any more, American Dreams (never watched it live but fell in love with the dvd set right out of my mother's childhood), no word after the first release....etc... But on a higher note at least it's not still in the same boat as Trapper John MD (sitting in a giant vault buried in the desert somewhere, no word on any release ever).

Yes, I enjoyed Barnaby Jones more now than as a kid, and I sure wish there was more..now...not next year, not 3 years away, tonight, at bedtime, I want more episodes!
