2 DVD COLLECTIBLE TIN! Set in the frozen tundra of Canada's Yukon Territory in the late 1800's, Sergeant Preston of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police rode alongside his trusted Husky sidekick, Yukon King. Preston could often be heard encouraging his sled dogs through the snow with cries of "On, King. On, you Huskies!" Battling the elements and criminals alike, he single-handedly fought for peace and justice. Preston set out to protect settlers and gold miners who came to make their home in this frozen wilderness. Naturally, like all good Mounties, he always got his man.

There was nothing suspect about this hero who talked to his dog in every episode "well, King this case is closed" and the world might be a better place today if there were more like him. At least we can recapture "those thrilling days of yesteryear" (yup, Fran Striker, brainchild behind the Lone Ranger TV series also had a hand in this one too) in a glossy, embossed tin that got us all outdoors. Ten color episodes on 2 dvds' are packaged here:
Disc One:"Crime at Wounded Moose", "Skagway Secret",' "Blind Justice",
"Phantom of Phoenixville", & "Dog Race".
Disc Two: "One Bear Too Many", "Justice at Goneaway Creek", "Black Ace", "Relief Train", & "Trapped".
Are these the best of the 3 seasons that were on TV and released? Having not seen the other shows for comparison, who knows? But one does wish that a little more love were put into this Timeless Video release. Typo on the tin (Disc One "Dog Race" not "Dog Rade") and 2 titles that do not match up with episodes also on Disc One. Come on guys, snap out of it. Give us product that is consistent with the image that is Sergeant Preston, Yukon King and Rex the Wonder Horse.
Mr. Simmons passed away several years ago here in California and I, for one, feel he deserves to be in a typo-free can with accurate episodes contained within."I arrest my case in the name of the crown"!
I never knew they were shot in colour as we only had B&W Tv then. The colour is a little light but very acceptable. Audio quality excellent. This is a pure baby-boomer nostalgia buy and excellent value for money. A big bonus is that it is "Region Free" so can be played on any DVD in the world. The storylines and acting are well, truly 1950's. But the mountie and his dog always got the baddies. It seems that was the theme of all those TV series then - good versus bad.
