(3 out of 5 stars)
"Volume 6 of Alpha Video's continuing series of "Ramar of the Jungle," includes three of the first 13 episodes set in Africa, and one episode from the second half of the last season. The first three episodes are notable because they include Ramar's Cockney guide, Charlie and his parrot, Walter. These are among the more difficult episodes to see of the series and mark the first time that "Charlie" has appeared on DVD. Alpha has also uncovered another four "Charlie" episodes (including the premiere episode) with its subsequent Volume 7 release.
The video quality of this release is about average for the series . . . . . that is to say that it will never win any awards for its visual quality, but it is watchable and the fact of the matter is that no other commercial releasing company has come even remotely close to releasing as many episodes as Alpha has. Given the rarity of this series, the less than pristine visuals are certainly acceptable. As mentioned in reviews for earlier volumes, casual fans of the show would do well to stick with volumes 1 and 2 which offer the best visual quality, while subsequent volumes are mostly for collectors of this entertaining jungle adventure series.
My rating is closer to *** & ½ stars.
