5.0 out of 5 stars TAKE A TRIP ON THE "ENTERPRISE" OF THE 1840s 29 Feb 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dramatic and well-written television series starring Darren McGavin as the captain of a riverboat called the "Enterprise" which carries passengers and cargo along the Mississippi river in the 1840s. A young Burt Reynolds played the boat's pilot for most of the first season.
The stories concern the divers passengers who come aboard and invariably cause trouble for the captain and his crew.
The series ran for 44 episodes from 1959 to 1961 and had a grand music score by the master of western movie soundtracks Elmer Bernstein.
The 15 episodes here have been remastered and are each around 50 minutes long. Guest stars include: Aldo Ray, Dan Duryea, Suzanne Pleshette, Eddie Albert and Claude Akins.
I hope Timeless Media Group will release the other 29 episodes in due course.

2.0 out of 5 stars A warning. 2 Sep 2012
By Clint
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A good series that enamoured me as a boy. Unfortunately episode two on disc one was only twenty two minutes and ten seconds long. Must have been a bad transfer, or something. The episodes are about forty five minutes or so long. So something gone badly wrong there. Picture and sound quality is not one hundred percent, but acceptable considering the age of recordings. You pays your money and you takes your choice. But was still a good series. Not enough of them made.

One of my favourite shows from the 60's, western-wise. Great theme tune, great stories, great price!

1.0 out of 5 stars Problems with the episode called BLOWUP 30 Nov 2007
By P. Williams - Published on
This series which we have all longed for to be put on to DVD has a major fault with Discs 2 & 3. The episode BLOWUP is faulty and will not play. Not enough care and attention has been paid to copying these episodes to DVD. Its not only my copy that is faulty, but people I know in the USA and in Australia are finding this DVD susbstandard with faults on this episode. They all need to be recalled and we should be supplied with episodes that play properly in our DVD players. So I advise everyone to steer clear of these DVDs until this fault has been corrected.

1.0 out of 5 stars TV Show is fine - DVD media is defective 10 Mar 2008
By Charles Hall - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought my discs in March 2008 and had the same problem everybody else did. Lots of pixelation and the second episode on the second disc ("Blow Up") stops half-way through. Timeless Media should be ashamed of themselves.

The quality of the show itself is fine. The source film prints are quite clear, the plots are adequate, and the acting is 1st rate. The show holds up quite well after all these years.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Aboard the Enterprise (don't miss this boat) 28 April 2012
By Dav - Published on
If you are purchasing Riverboat despite having never seen the program you will not be disappointed.

This was a very well produced, gripping Western series with excellent production values and terrific writing to match a top-notch cast. Some of the guest stars not mentioned above that you will see are a young and alluring Elizabeth Montgomery, the dashing Ricardo Montalban (look for a quick glimpse of Mary Tyler Moore as an extra), a guy from another ship called "Enterprise" - DeForest Kelley, Charles Bronson, Suzanne Pleshette and a familiarly scruffy-looking Buddy Ebsen (playing the role that might well have landed him the spot of the Beverly Hillbillies Jed Clampett) in "The Waters of Gorgeous Springs".

You will enjoy Burt Reynolds in his first TV role too - he manages to hang around for 21 episodes (before he goes overboard) and its too bad that he leaves the show. At this writing before the DVD release date I have not seen all the episodes, just a few I collected on original distribution reels but most were in the first 20 episodes and all thoroughly satisfying. There is a line of continuity - at least in the episodes with Reynolds and you will want to watch them in the correct order. There are a couple of episodes where Darren McGavin is missing from the cast - and that unfortunately leaves a void that Noah Berry Jr. cant really fill but the omission is brief and McGavin's brilliant performances carry Riverboat all the way to its final stop.

A fine show of the period, this truly deserved to be released in its entirety and I will be purchasing Riverboat: The Complete Series to finally see all the episodes!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Where was Quality Control? 1 Dec 2007
By David Blake - Published on
It's great to see all these titles being released by Timeless Media Group, but - if they are all as badly mastered as this set - they needn't have bothered.

I agree the previous comments - skips, pixilations - particularly on Disc Two. Timeless need to get their act together quickly - I would have thought a recall of all dodgy discs a necessary first step.
