Synopsis

The master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was as prolific as he was brilliant, producing not only dozens of award-winning films, but also a few excellent television series. Alfred Hitchcock Presents was arguably the best of his small-screen triumphs. Hosted by the man himself, the series offered viewers short dramatized stories on a weekly basis, mixing the genres of horror, drama, suspense, and fantasy. Series two is collected here in its entirety and features guest stars Rip Torn, Jessica Tandy, Hume Cronyn, Vic Morrow, and others.

This is way before my time but when a programme is this good it matters not. I used to watch this sometime in the 1980's with my Dad and it was one of my favourite programmes at the time but it wasn't this series, it was the later series called New Alfred Hitchcock Presents because I can remember it being in colour, but anyway the presentation and music (very uplifting for something so dark) was exactly the same as this. Although I can't really remember all of the stories from those colour episodes, there was one in particular that involved somebody accidentally being buried alive after a plan went wrong and it put me off ever wanting to be buried when I die.

I love the way this series is presented by Alfred Hitchcock, he was a national treasure and I particularly like his witty remarks before and after each episode I really hope they release every series of this on DVD, it would be a tragedy if it wasn't. Just like the first series there are 39 episodes at roughly 23 minutes each and a good variety of stories all with some kind of twist at the end. I don't think that this is as well known as say for example The Twilight Zone (another classic that as aged beautifully) or to younger people like myself, but if you like that and anything similar, then even at over fifty years old (and as I have already mentioned this is way before my time) I would recommend this classic programme to anyone.

If you are a fan of Alfred Hitchcock's movies then you will love the TV show which aired at the height of his powers, back in the 1950s. Each episode is a production of a play or short story from the time, and developed by Hitch and feels like one of his movies! One of the highlights of the show is Hitchcock's droll sense of humour and constant references to the sponsors. I urge all Hitchcock fans, in fact all fans of mystery and suspense, to buy this product (start off with season 1 to do justice to this wonderful series).

Before plunging into this review I must point out something. For some bizarre reason Amazon have put the reviews of the TV show Spartacus in with the reviews of Hitchcock Presents season 2. What these two shows have in common I have no idea. My first suspicions that not all was right was seeing that this DVD had over 100 reviews and other seasons barely had 10. Amazon have been guilty in the past of putting original movies and remakes together as one review, but confusing two different shows is a scratch of the head moment. Onto the review.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents Season 2 is overall very entertaining. From the actors to the screenplay and production values everything is top notch. Years ahead of its time and a joy to watch. Here you get 39 epsiodes spread over 16 hours of entertainment and out of those episodes I enjoyed 20 of them. 13 I thought were ok and 6 were just not up to par. Though again I must stress just how good the production values of these episodes are. I have no idea of the budget of each episode, but nothing feels cheap.

The show only utilised very few directors and I think at least for Season 2 this can be a benefit as everything was very tight knit. Between Robert Stevens, Justus Addis and Herschel Daugherty they directed 25 of the 39 episodes on offer. Hitchcock himself directed 3 of the episodes. You will also find repeat actors and actresses during the season. I do feel this can be a hindrence especially if said actor was in a classic episode and then a medicore one. However the acting is of a high standard even if the story doesn't always work out. Alas it was no surprise to find Hitchcock favourites John Williams and Cedric Hardwicke in a few epsidoes. Williams is actually in 6 different ones.

Great show that you never know what you are going to get, it could be drama, comedy, horror and of course suspense, but one thing is for sure it will be quality!!!

It's also great to see these often young actors/actresses just starting out in their careers and little did they know that many of them would go on to achieve so much in the business.

The first series in this collection were fantastic as far as quality goes. This second season 2 is even better quality. obviously due to the originals being netter in the first place.

I put "its ok" as a rating, because there are no subtitles to this DVD so my wife,who has hearing loss,could not really follow the plots. Other wise this is a good collection of stories.
Primo.
