In a era when many of the TV westerns were fantasies, such as Johnny Ringo as a lawman; Trackdown stood out as one of the better TV westerns in terms of characters, a fair amount of authenticity and good plots. For example Robert Culp was a big smoker, and often seemed to have a cigarette dangling from his lips when he played the main character Hoby Gilman. In one scene it shows him actually rolling a cigarette out of papers and tobacco. A nice touch that most westerns of the period glossed over. One of my memories of that time was the drum roll opening to the show including a fluttering Texas Rangers' flag marked Frontier Battalion. The series had some of the cliches such as the aggressive female newspaper publisher and the good hearted gambler, but generally it was an excellent show. The DVDs I ordered were complete and clear -- many of the old TV shows on DVDS grainy, with poor sound and dark. This one was great. I am looking forward to volume 2.

This is not one of the best western series, but the stories were OK and Robert Culp was charismatic enough. It is rather studio-bound series, but quite well made. I might buy the next ten episodes. The quality of the DVD was not very good, but passable.

Young Robert Culp is our hero Texas Ranger Hoby Gillman in this 30 minute relatively routine western for it's day. Stories are generally pretty interesting but quality of picture detracts substantially. Not near the released video quality of Wanted Dead or Alive, the Steve McQueen oater that sprang form this very series. But then Robert Culp was no Steve McQueen so I'm sure didn't rate the post production effort to produce watchable discs. This show lasted two seasons which is indicative of the routine story lines and original production values, I'd judge. Of interest to die hard western (like me) fans principally. Too bad about the image quality, really.

This show was not only a favorite of mine when I was growing up, I got to see Robert Culp as "Hoby Gilman" at the Texas Prison Rodeo in 1959. The Prison Rodeo at Huntsville was going strong in the late '50's and ran every weekend in Oct. I got to go one year with my dad and some friends of his, and the following year we went as a family, with my mother and sister. Every weekend there was a special guest, and that first year, the guest our weekend was Robert Culp. The only other guests I can remember from the program we bought were the four stars of "Bonanza. Anyway, by 1959 just about 50% of prime time TV in this country consisted of westerns, and some of the best, like 'Gunsmoke', 'Have Gun--Will Travel', and 'Cheyenne' were still in their prime. 'Trackdown' struck a chord with me, though it was not a favorite of my dad's. It didn't last very long but I never missed it. I don't remember ever seeing it in reruns so it was a pleasure to relive some episodes I probably saw, but don't remember. Not the best video quality but the memories are enough to override that, and anyway, given the reception of the TV signal in those days where we lived, this is more like sitting on the floor in the living room as the 10 yr old kid I was.

Sorry I cannot saymuch good about this DVD. It only contains 10 various episodes- none of which are in good condition.
Hopefully in the future the whole series-2 seasons-will be released and in good condition.

I was pleased to find Trackdown on DVD at last. The quality of the transfer is not studio perfect, but it is better than not having any episodes at all! I am looking forward to more episodes being released in the near future. Having the entire series would be a great addition to my collection of TV westerns.

It's fun to see the TV shows of yesterday again. I remember TRACKDOWN very well and was glad it's now available on DVD. Picture quality on this product leaves a little to be desired but it's worth the price.

Robert Culp did a great job in this series. I found the stories and acting vary good. The picture quality vary good and the sound was clear. The stories were true from the files of the Texas Rangers. Robert Culp was a fine actor and writer.
