"And now some scenes from next weeks show..."
Kelly Lynch | Chicago | 09/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Praised for its quality and famous for its drama, The Untouchables (1959-1963) roared like the decade it portrayed in grand theatrical style. It was epic, unique, and violent as it brought to life the nightly wars between good and evil in the streets of Prohibition Chicago.

With legendary law man Eliot Ness (Robert Stack) and his band of incorruptible federal agents leading the way for justice, famed reporter Walter Winchell providing staccato narration, and guest stars breathing life into colorful underworld characters, the true story of The Untouchables has become legend in a film noir mix of true history and Emmy award winning television fiction...

This set presents the latter half of the first season, as the series begins to mature and find out what works and what doesn't.

The writing gets tighter, the characters get more colorful, Ness loses a man or two, and the stage is set for enthralling second season.

Check out "The Unhired Assasin," "One Armed Bandits," "The Noise of Death," "3000 Suspects" (with Leslie Nielson in a straight role!) and "The Frank Nitti Story" as highlights from the latter part of Season 1, Volume 2.
Untouchables episodes are GREAT!!!

"People complain that dividing "The Untouchables" into two parts for the first season was done out of greed. If you have each part you realize that much care was given to the quality of each episode. Each volume of the first season has four DVDs! It was not greed that led to the division of the first season, in my opinion. It was a concern for quality. The only problem is that is is VERY difficult to turn off the episodes! Watching four episodes per each DVD disc can upset one's have been warned!"
Classic TV

"Still holds up well after 50 years - one of the greatest TV shows ever featuring compelling performances by Robert Stack, who is an excellent Elliot Ness and an extremely under-rated actor (Stack is simply brilliant in everything I've seen him in and this is no exception). The Untouchables is THE gangster TV show set in Prohibition America. A fine cast of regulars and many guest stars of high calibre, this show was one of the first with a docu-drama approach that really intensifies the action and plot of each episode. If you thought The Sopranos and The Wire were the beginning of televised corporate crime, look again - it all started here first on THE UNTOUCHABLES with Frank Nitti (the successor to Al Capone when he was jailed) and the very start of organised crime."
"The Untouchables" revisited

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a kid, there was a single show that my parents were adamant that I not watch. That was "The Untouchables". Too violent for my delicate psyche to handle, I guess. So, when I discovered the first season available on Amazon, I had to have it -- recession or no. There have been no disappointments. The B&W film has been masterfully reproduced to DVD. The only thing missing is the commercials. The bumper music between segments is intact as is the end credit music. Seeing some of the guest stars before they made it big is always interesting and the cars, oh my word, the cars. Wouldn't I love to have one of those old 30's pieces of iron! Anyway, if you're looking to rekindle some forgotten memories, I would highly recommend this product. From the reviews I've read, the first year is far superior to any others that have been reproduced. That said, I'll stick with this one."
