During the last part of the series' run, the chubby private eye's Cannonmobile was the Lincoln Continental Mark V(Not correct. The series ended in 1976. The Continental Mark V was introduced in 1977. The final year of the series was a 1976 Continental Mark IV) See more »

This Should Be on DVD!!!
16 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent early 70s crime show with William Conrad.Great story lines and production.If any DVD studios are reading this this needs a DVD release!!I mean a full release by seasons no best of teasers please. TV Land used to show this a lot back in 96 but not since then. They just don't make good shows like this anymore. William Conrad i believe won awards for this show.It had a good solid run throughout the early 70s.If you haven't seen this it is well worth checking out. Well if your 40 or older younger viewers may not remember this show. Anyway i gave this 10 stars because it deserves it.Please let's all bug the DVD studios to release this.
