    Comments about Lieutenant, The - The Complete Series, Part 1:

    I've waited 50 years to see this and it didn't disappoint. I was in the Marine Corps when this was filmed and in the same Reg. as was shown. I saw, alot of old friends that I haven't seen since then. I even got to see myself in a scene with Bill Bixby getting in the back of my jeep. I told family and friends I was a TV star now I ccan prove it.

        Comments about Lieutenant, The - The Complete Series, Part 1:

        Outstanding show!! It was my favorite in grade school and where I first learned of the Naval Academy, giving me a goal to do well academically for nominations to service academies. I was so disappointed when there was no second season and feared I would not see any episodes in re-runs. Thanks for putting it on DVD. Unlike many who view it as simply a prequel to the great "Star Trek" series, I consider "The Lieutenant," its stars Gary Lockwood, Robert Vaughn, et al., and of course Gene Roddenberry to deserve the highest praise for their portrayal of complex issues surfacing during that era including foreign war, race relations, and women in combat.

            For several years I have looked for this product. IMDB comments indicated it would be released last year. I found out on Wikipedia that it had been released August 10th. Even then, it was because of the graphic that I noticed it was available. On the other hand, I am very thankful to have it.

              THIS SHOW RAN AGAINST JACKIE GLEASON IN THE 1960'S AND ONLY LASTED ONE SEASON. IT IS A WELL WRITTEN WELL ACTED DRAMATIC SERIES. UNDERATED ACTOR GARY LOCKWOOD AND PRE MAN FROM UNCLE STAR ROBERT VAUGHN EXCEL. IT CAPTURES WHAT MARINE LIFE IS LIKE WHILE BEING VERY ENTERTAINING. IT IS SET IN PEACETIME AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BUYING IT.

                  Here's your chance to see some of the Enterprise
                  crew before they donn the spandex suits.
                  Every couple of episodes featured at least
                  One future cast member. From Lenard Ne-
                  moy to Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koinig and
                  Majel Barrett.

                      This long-lost series was the first one produced by Gene Roddenberry. It only lasted one season but was good enough to have continued. But if it had continued, he might never have created Star Trek. The series offers a look at the Marine Corps just before Vietnam escalated into a major conflict, focusing on young Lt. William T. Rice and the challenges he faces both on and off duty. There are several recognizable actors, including several who would go on to appear in Star Trek.

                        Thank you, Warner Brothers, for bring to DVD more of Gene Roddenberry's televsion work in addition to Star Trek. Now, if they would only bring out Have Gun, Will Travel Season Six, Questor Tapes, and Spectre.
