5.0 out of 5 stars Continuing the saga of Elliot Ness, 20 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Untouchables: Complete Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Season three of the Untouchables aired in the U.S. from 12th October 1961 with the episode The Troubleshooter through to 5th July 1962 with The Monkey Wrench. All 28 episodes of season three are gathered together on this 7 disc U.K. DVD collection and the volumes 1 and 2 mentioned on the box refers to the two collections of this material released in the U.S. last year.

Like the previously released seasons 1 and 2 this third series is in black and white, full frame (4:3 ratio) and has been digitally remastered with restored mono sound for this DVD release from CBS studios. Season 3 was the pen-ultimate season with the final season of thirty episodes running from 25th September 1962 through to 21st May 1963 in the U.S. Unfortunately there is still no release date for season 4 on DVD in the U.S. so we may have to wait quite a while longer to conclude Elliot Ness' adventures with a U.K. release of the final season.

If you have the Untouchables seasons 1 and 2 on DVD then you will probably want to continue your collection with season 3 which has just been released in the U.K. I remember these stories from the mid to late sixties on U.K TV and they are still as iconic today as they were then, and probably say as much about that decade as they do about the thirties! A truly classic piece of TV which is recommended to all who value high production values and film noir visual styles.
