Maverick: The Complete Second Season (DVD)

Take a trip back in time with the comic adventures of Maverick, which won the 1959 Emmy® Award for Best Western Series, as Emmy® winner James Garner (The Rockford Files) shows how the West was won - in a card game! Wisecracking ladies' man Bret Maverick (Garner) and his more serious brother, Bart (Jack Kelly – Gunsmoke), are two handsome bachelors on the loose in the Wild West with a penchant for playing a good hand of cards. The two have more success at the game of poker than the game of love, yet they persistently try their luck in one frontier outpost after another. If trouble arises, these cardsharps would rather slip out of town quietly than face a gunman, but when it's time for a showdown, better place your bet on a Maverick. Season two features a wealthy roster of guest stars including Martin Landau, Clint Eastwood, Louise Fletcher, Robert Conrad, Adam West, Connie Stevens and Roger Moore, as the Mavericks' cousin Beau.

Not a moment too soon we are blessed with the second season of "Maverick", the full 26 episodes presented in glorious black and white.

Starring James Garner as the always affable, sometimes scheming Bret Maverick in the role that made him famous. He appears even more comfortable this season and with the support of his trusting brother Bart, played with great aplomb by Jack Kelly, we get to enjoy some of the best episodes this vaunted series has to offer.

Certainly one of my favorites and arguably a signature episode of the series is "Shady Deal at Sunny Acres" that features many of the series regulars who helped make "Maverick" so special. "Shady Deal" features a great set-up that is executed to perfection which would be mimicked by future TV shows and movies like "The Sting".

Other highlights include a young pre-Rawhide Clint Eastwood in "Duel at Sundown" who keeps calling our hero mister "Mav-er-AAACK", "The Day They Hanged Bret Maverick" and "The Spanish Dancer" featuring Slim Pickens. However, all of the episodes are enjoyable to watch and vastly entertaining.

As for the DVDs themselves, little has changed since the first series was released last year. The packaging is fine, but there are no extras, only the insert which lists each episode, the date it appeared with a synopsis of the plot. The overall video quality is also fair to good with noticeable wear and scratches present so like the first season I am docking this DVD set one star. However, this should not be seen as a criticism of the episodes themselves which are still highly entertaining and wonderful to see again.

I highly recommend the second season of Maverick as being just as much fun today as it was when it first aired back in 1958, a testament to the strong storyline, great supporting cast and the magnetic characters of Bret and Bart Maverick.

Warners has two divisions releasing DVDs and Blu-Rays, and sometimes it's like a Maverick gamble trying to figure out which release is coming from which section.

Maverick, Season 2 on DVD has apparently a broader appeal than, say, Cheyenne, which is another Warners Western series from the 1950s into the '60s. Cheyenne is released through their Warner Archives; Maverick through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. I think I have that right. I screwed it up once in writing to them, so we'll see.

Both shows are from their library of TV series that brought Warner Bros. into the television arena. Shows like Maverick and 77 Sunset Strip were major league hits for the third network, ABC, at the time, and those shows, along with Walt Disney, helped make them a contender against NBC and CBS.

Season 2 of Maverick is the series at the top of their game. The distinctive tone of Maverick is more clearly defined than in Season 1. If Cheyenne played by Clint Walker is the iconic, soft-voiced, Gary Cooper film persona of the cowboy of integrity and loyalty, the Maverick brothers are essentially Cheyenne's opposite; they are gamblers, their only real religion is the luck of the draw or outmaneuvering those that would cheat them. There are no better examples of this than in this newest set, packaged nicely, with good cover art of Bret and Bart with cards and chips in their hands.

Maverick, Season 2 has all 26 episodes, the story telling uncut, selling at a reasonable price.

(Side question: How did they get away with 26 episodes when most TV series at the time were producing a staggering number 39. 2nd side question: If they were going to do 39, how'd they come up with that number, why not an even 40?

There about fifty legitimate candidates for the list of greatest television episodes of all time: "Abysinnia, Henry",(MASH) {"Opie The Birdman",(The Andy Griffith Show) "Sweet Prince of Delancy Street",(Naked City) "Arrival" ( LOST), "Postmodern Prometheus"( The X-files) " Who Do You Kill?", (East Side West -Side), "Fall-Out" (The Prisoner), "Women Do Not Weep" ( Upstairs Downstairs)five or six Twilight Zones, three or four Alfred Hitchcock's, "They're Tearing Down Pete Reilly's Bar,(Night Gallery) and more obscure candidates such as, "Rally Around Your Own Flag, Mister", And "Question: Do you Remember The Dark Sins of Youth?"(Slattery's People) "The Last Testament Of Buddy Crown" and "A Bang And A Whimper"(Channing),and "Incident With An Executioner",(Rawhide) "Noon Wine" ( Sam Peckinpah directed this dazzling episode of an ABC anthology Series whose name I forget.and a about two dozen others.
Undoubtedly, this episode -and three or four other Mavericks- must be on ANY serious list. This is the quintessential Maverick, Brett Maverick is cheated by a clever-and crooked- banker ( superbly played by the great John Dehner) Then he goes to the telegraph office, and sends a series of messages to almost all the usual suspects- Dandy Jim Buckley,(Efrem Zimbalist,Jr.), Gentleman Jim Darby, (Richard Long), Big Jim McComb, (Leo Gordon), Brother Bart, and several of the ladies. Then he sits back and whittles while a con game of sheer genius unfolds, with John Dehner as the victim. Dehner's character is no fool, and he almost catches on at one point, but his greed and vanity betray him. Magnificent!
