Packed with fast motorcycles, powerful patrol cars, helicopters and two-way radios, Highway Patrol screamed onto the scene destined to be one of the most popular syndicated television series of all time. This action packed show filled with harrowing roadway adventures sped its way from the TV screen into pop culture with the catch phrase "10-4".

UPDATE: The problem has to be the packaging. Vol 2 has 3 DVD's stacked on top of each other, on a single central hub. The DVD's tend to come off the hub & get scracthed. However, the Vol 3 I received has the same problem, possibly the DVD's are even looser than the Vol 2 set. Vol 4 has the same 3 DVD's stacked on a single hub, but the hub is different & the DVD's don't come off to get scratched. I also got this same loosy packaging with Vol 2 of Bat Materson.
It's great watching this show in black & white, as it seems to add more authenticity to the contents. The stories are fantastic, and I believe that they're loosely based on real life events. It's nice to see the bad guys caught at the end of each episode. It's also nice to see the cars from the 50's in their original condition.
Each episode lasts a full 25+ minutes, as there were fewer commercials during this relatively early era of TV. The bottom line is that Highway Patrol is the genuine article. Don't miss it.
The DVD is of very good quality and was delivered promptly in excellent condition.
My only criticism is that more than one dvd is put on a holder. Makes getting them out more difficult than it should and increases the chance of scratching a dvd.
Broderick Crawford was a fine actor who made the show convincing and compelling. He was rough on the bad guys, gentle with the children and got frustrated with citizens who got in the way of his work.
Television was still fairly new when this show was on and it is interesting to see how the cast members were used. Some actors would play a 'good guy' in one episode and a 'villain' in another episode. It is my opinion that Hollywood was building up its pool of available actors for TV roles and Highway Patrol gave the actors an opportunity to showcase their acting abilities.
If you are a serious Broderick Crawford fan, you will definitely want this and the other seasons in you collection.
Happy viewing everyone!
