Agent Lewis Erskine (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) and Special Agent Jim Rhodes (Stephen Brooks) from one of the longest running (1965-1974) Quinn Martin TV series has long last arrived on DVD. A who's who of every well known actor and actress of that era bring these real-life gripping dramas to the small screen and all during the controvesial J. Edgar Hoover era of the bureau. Not seen in over 45 years, this classic series is the Holy Grail from Television's finest hour...

I love the series, it is my favorite. DVD quality by WB is bad. I have many DVD TV series/movies and this is the worst quality. It is not remastered. Most series are digitally remastered. Putting 4 episodes on a DVD-R disc does not help. Very high price for half a season with low quality. Only one source to purchase.I have found that WB Archives has the lowest quality of DVDs. I recently purchased a movie that does not even play all the way through.It is a shame that such a great series has to finally come out in such bad quality. If you love the series, buy it. I will use what I recorded off of cable because the quality is so much better and purchase only the series/episodes I do not have, if it is actually produced. Would have liked a digitally remastered box set of all 9 seasons.

Comments about The FBI: The First Season Part One:

I loved this series, as many did. And it is fun to watch the cars, social customs, and technology of my youth. Unfortunately, there are not enough people who want this series to make it financially worthwhile for Warner to refurbish the original print. As a result, there are a few episodes which have poor quality sound and visible damage to the picture. I definitely wish Warner had manufactured top quality discs from digitally restored masters, but beggars cannot be choosers. It's great fun to look at today's aging stars and see them when they were young and just starting out. The story lines are predictable, but entertaining. Despite the shortcomings, I plan to get the whole series.

    Comments about The FBI: The First Season Part One:

    I bought this for one reason. That is to see the mustang Erskine drives during the lead out. It was owned by a friend. So I got what I wanted but I wished the resolution were better. Also I thought Erskine drove into FBI HQ during the lead in . . . maybe not? Liked seeing that mustang again . . .

        Comments about The FBI: The First Season Part One:

        Spies, kidnappers, and robbers are no match for the clever inspectors backed by the massive and methodical F.B.I. Interesting episodes based on real F.B.I. cases are presented with likable characters. The first few episodes are slightly cheesy, but they quickly drop the not-so-witty banter and get down to business in all of the rest of the episodes. Love seeing the cars and fashions from that era. Quality family entertainment. More seasons, PLEASE!

          Superb storylines based on actual FBI Case Files. A well written series with excellent teleplays. The actors are simply magnificent and believeable in their roles. This is the best series ever produced about the FBI and, hopefully, WB will release further seasons. This show withstands the test of time so well you can call it "timeless".
