Chicago, 1930, time of the prohibition. And it is the great time for the organized crime, the so called Mafia. One of the big bosses is Al Capone. He is the best know but at least, he was only one in a dirty game of sex, crime and corruption. People are willing to pay any price to drink alcohol, and sometimes it is their life they have to pay with. Special agent Eliot Ness and his team are trying to defeat the alcohol Mafia, but in this job, you don't have any friends.Written by

Walter Winchell received a reported twenty-five thousand dollars per episode for his narration on this series. With his signature machine gun dialogue delivery, he could apparently rack up almost two hundred words per minute. See more »
Several episodes show Frank Nitti taking over control of the Capone organization immediately upon Capone's conviction for tax evasion. In real life, Nitti was also convicted of tax evasion and sentenced to 18 months in federal prison; he wasn't able to assume control of the Capone organization until his release late in 1932.

It's coming out on DVD, April 3, 2007. A four disk set, Vol one of the first season. Includes The Scarface Mob and goes up to episode 14, The Noise of Death. Check it out on amazon.
If you guys like the show be sure to buy the DVD set which will insure that they'll come out with the rest of season 1 and all the other seasons. I'm tired of watching my old not so good copies on VHS. Columbia House never had the full show on VHS anyway and the copies made from the TV of the episodes CH didn't put out are much inferior. I can't wait to see it in crisp b/w and hear that great soundtrack.
Funny thing, my 8th grade English teacher also railed on about the violence on The Untouchables, but the kids were crazy about it back then.
