King, this case is closed!

"Great video and sound quality, much better than I had dared to hope for. This is the holy grail for Sergeant Preston fans. Just buy it!"
Where to buy!! (I'm glad I did).

"I just thought I'd let everyone know that this set is available at deepdiscountdvd.com. From what I've read here and at tvshowsondvd.com, the audio and video is really great. It sounds like these episodes are uncut also (which is a big plus with me!). If you buy this set, please come back and let the rest of us know what you think.

UPDATE: Just got my DVD set in and I have but one word to say ---- WWWOOOOWWW! The audio and video quality is amazingly good!! The only complaint I have is that the disc holders are cheap and flimsy. When I first opened the set, I pulled out disc 1 and the disc itself was already loose in the plastic case so be careful. The case centers don't seem to hold the disc in place very well. I will probably have to replace them with better ones. After seeing (and owning) previous discs of this show that looked horrible, this set is a very welcome addition. The picture quality is excellent. The colors are fantastic, especially Preston's bright red uniform. If you are a fan of this show or know someone who is, don't hesitate to buy this set!"
Beyond expectations

"I had several episodes of this tv series with horrible picture quality, so I was elated when I got this set. Picture and color are pristine!
Anyone who loved the radio show will love the tv series. Richard Simmons WAS Sgt. Preston and the tv show is as much fun as the radio show. The producers had the foresight to film the show in color (in 1955 color tv was virtualy nonexistent) and the scenery (filmed in Colorado) is gorgeous."
A Real Surpise !

"It was with much trepidation I ordered this box set of Sergeant Preston of the Yukon. Previous purchases on the Critics Choice label, who specialise in cheap public domain releases of mostly poor quality material had made me very wary.

My misgivings however turned to delight when I viewed this.It appears Critics Choice have actually obtained rights to the original master prints & the quality is really superb for a 50 year old series. Both colours & sound are crisp & clear & the nature of the program (being outdoors with a lot of greenery or snow)emphasises this. Preston in his bright red coat looks superb.

The stories are pretty simple with good triumphing over evil & few shades of grey. Nevertheless they are enjoyable & would have had a lot of appeal to kids growing up in the 50's.Even if the plots are a little thin at times your eye is constantly taken by the bright colour & scenery.

The episodes are grouped on 5 discs each in a slimline case,the only minor criticism being the rather dull box & photo but this won't detract from your enoyment of the series.

Critics Choice have already released Season 2 with Season 3 to come so you can collect the whole run.

They have also released the 52 Hopalong Cassidy TV episodes & though in monochrome the quality here is excellent also.

Hopefully they may become a major source of old hard to find series in good quality !
