    Comments about Probe (1972/TV ):

    If anyone had told me 40 years ago that I wouldn't buy this immediately it became available I'd have said they were crazy. In fact, I only waited because I was hoping the whole series would be released... and after what seemed like an eternity, it finally was, and I snapped up this movie as part of the "package". It's weird that a "futuristic" show from the 70s now looks like a period piece but it's no less entertaining now than it was then. If you have friends with a fondness for the classic era of TV detectives buy them this severely underated gem as a teaser for a fantastic one-season show, which is also now available from the Warner Archive!

          When I first saw this movie (and later the TV show Search) when I was 14, I thought it was great due to the camera ring and implant behind the character's ear. To this day it is still one of my all-time favorite movies and shows. I just wish it hadn't taken so many years to come out on DVD.

            This pilot for the S.E.A.R.C.H. TV series is absolutely marvelous. The entire cast is superb; Burgess Meredith and Angel Tompkins will have you ROTFLYAO. Hugh O'Brian is total eye candy, and with an international cast, you can't go wrong.

                I have left messages in the past requesting the entire series be reproduced on DVD. This is one of the best sci-fi series made in its time!

                Please put out the rest of the shows!

                          This was a great pilot for a great show. However, if Warner really considers it part of their 'archive', they should make proper film transfers instead of making copies from a flawed video master.

                          They should also release the entire series Search. If it was done properly from file, I would buy the whole series.
