"Burke's Law Season One Part Two ... Gene Barry ... VCI Ent.
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 11/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"VCI Entertainment presents "BURKE'S LAW-SEASON ONE - VOLUME TWO" (20 September 1963) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- On 4 DVD's 16 episodes exceptional quality, produced by Aaron Spelling --- Burke's Law is a detective series which ran on ABC from 1963 to 1966 and was revived on CBS in the 1990s --- The show starred Gene Barry as Amos Burke, millionaire Los Angeles Chief of Detectives, who was chauffeured around to solve crimes in his Rolls-Royce --- The best of the Cary Grant clones was Gene Barry --- In his career Barry was a male model, had good breeding and seductive whiskey voice --- Barry was also TV's greatest reactors --- With a multitude of comic takes that was perfect for Amos Burke, who had to confront an unending series of eccentric subjects --- Yet he could turn around and romance the ladies or get tough with the tough guys. And he was a good enough actor to hold up his end when the heavy dramatics intervened.

The 1964 Golden Globe Winner best TV Show & Best Male TV Stars --- Capt. Amos Burke (Gene Barry) was a Los Angeles chief of detectives who was also a millionaire with a chauffeur driven Rolls Royce, a mansion, and a high wheeling lifestyle --- The hallmarks of this series were glamorous, sophisticated settings, unusual twists on formula homicide plot lines, and big name guest stars --- After a couple of seasons, its format was radically revamped. Burke left the police force and became an agent for US Intelligence --- At that point, the show's name changed to "Amos Burke--Secret Agent". Burke's adventures were briefly revived in 1994, under the original title.

In the original series, other characters were Detective Tim Tilson (Gary Conway), Detective Les Hart (Regis Toomey), and Sergeant Ames (Eileen O'Neill). In several episodes Anne Francis appeared as female detective Honey West, which led to a short-lived spin-off series --- The musical score for Burke's Law was largely the work of Herschel Burke Gilbert, whose middle name was coincidentally the same as the character of the series --- The role of Amos Burke actually predated Barry's series, having been played by Dick Powell on an episode of The Dick Powell Show in 1961 --- The first incarnation of the series was produced by Powell's company, Four Star Television --- (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Under the production staff of:
Don Weis - Director (13 episodes, 1963-1965)
Jerry Hopper - Director (11 episodes, 1964-1965)

Should have packed it this way the first time!

"As a DVD collector, space is critical to me, the packaging for this volume of Burke's Law was nothing short of perfect. They should have packaged the first volume like this also.

* All 4 discs in one package

* Slimmer case

As far as the Episodes?, they were great, I finished Volume two last night. If you were a fan of this show in the 60's, I can tell you, it hasn't lost any of it's greatness and the vintage commercials, while some were snoozers to watch, were tinged with nostalgia.

If you like 60's crime shows, you need this in your DVD collection - Bill's Law."

"I had actually been searching for a company to put out DVD's of "Burke's Law" and all of a sudden there they were (at least Season 1). I have been thrilled with both volumes of that first season. I remembered this show being on TV in the 60's and loving it and to go back and view the shows again has been wonderful. All the characters: Capt. Burke, Tim, & Les are there in their respective roles making the show special. Gene Barry was created for this part of the rich, debonaire, handsome police captain and he carries the part well. Someone always has to be the murder victim in each show of course but murder is never glorified. It is the old "Who DunIt" format that I like. If you remember this show and liked it then these DVD's are for you."

"This DVD set is well done. The restoration of this classic detective series of the early 1960's is a must have. Picture is sharp and clear as is the sound. Highly recommend."
