I enjoyed the comments of the previous writer, but had seen 90% of O'Brien's films before getting this series on DVD. Although not nearly in the class of the great Peter Gunn, it is still an excellent drama that I rate alongside the equally cool M Squad with Lee Marvin. I will definitely try and track down O'Brien's later series as well. It would be great to see these old series released on single Blu-Ray disks in the future although I doubt it will happen. It would be worthwhile re-releasing all the great 40-60s series on Blu-Ray with the ease of shipping single disk series around the world. And I hope this is one of them as the DVD set I have is only about 6/10 quality.
All in all well worth anyone's time. The series also has some excellent actors in guest roles....
