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.
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"!
These are "detective" shows of a sort, and Sgt. Preston ALWAYS GETS HIS MAN. I just love YUKON KING. No dog so loyal or clever than he. I LOVE HIM TO PIECES. What a pal!
If you enjoy Sergeant Yukon this is for you. The colour transfers are excellent considering that they date from the year of my birth (1955). TIMELESS MEDIA GROUP, the producers of this set, did AN INCREDIBLE JOB. The quality is UNBELIEVABLY GOOD. They MADE THE EFFORT TO REPRODUCE THIS SHOW AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE AND THEY SUCCEEDED. Somehow they got hold of BEAUTIFUL COLOUR PRINTS. I MEAN FANTASTIC! And these people are so humble they have a disclaimer at the beginning of each disc stating there could be some imperfections in the transfers? IF ONLY ONE-TENTH OF THE VINTAGE TELEVISION DVD'S I BOUGHT WERE AS WELL MADE.
This is something extra special for people my age. It's fun, wholesome and so very entertaining. NOTHING LIKE IT TODAY. GOOD triumphs over EVIL. COOL CANADIAN MOUNTIES. COMPELLING STORIES! SWEEPING PANORAMAS! I highly recommend this set to you. It's what television should have been about all along. BUY THIS SET! YOU'LL LOVE THE GORGEOUS TIN CONTAINER THAT IT COMES IN. A piece of art. The stuff dreams are made of.
"Well, King. This case is closed."
and talked about it often, you can imagine my surprise to see
I could order it. I did and we were so very happy with it.
