Movie Reviews

Great vintage TV, horribly branded.

(2 out of 5 stars)

"Content: 5 stars, DVD Production: 1 star.

Most of these episodes are available in other editions, and I'd suggest you go for those instead. This DVD is branded with the "Platinum" logo, big and red, that covers an unreasonable amount of the image as you watch the DVD. It's not there 100% of the time, but when it is, it's hard to look at anything else. I've never seen such over-the-top branding, even on cheap 2-for-1 Bollywood DVDs!

Anyway, if you still want to go ahead and buy it since it's so cheap, this list of episodes might help since there's hardly any detail here:

1. Richard Diamond, Private Detective - Merry Go Round
2. Richard Diamond, Private Detective - Picture of Fear
3. Peter Gunn - The Fuse
4. Peter Gunn - Let's Kill Timothy
5. Mr Wong, Detective - Episode One (Boris Karloff)
6. Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police
7. Burke's Law - Who Killed Jason Shaw?

I guess for the price it might be worth adding to your order as a sampler of the genre, say, if you want to watch a couple of episodes before buying a better quality DVD release. Maybe that big red logo won't bother you as much as it bothers me!"
