Product Description

Product Description

"There ya' go". Rustle up some action and adventure as police drama McCloud rides on to DVD for the first time ever! Emmy winner Dennis Weaver stars as the brave Deputy Marshal Sam McCloud, the toughest cowboy to ever take on the mean streets of New York, as well as the by-the-book detectives on the NYPD. Despite the demands of his strict supervisor, Chief Peter B. Clifford (J.D. Cannon), McCloud finds himself in an endless showdown with some of the meanest criminals east of the Mississippi. This amazing DVD set features all 11 thrilling episodes of McCloud Seasons 1 & 2, including the series' pilot, as well as a gripping bonus episode of the popular McMillan & Wife. Saddle up with entertaining guest stars including Milton Berle, Pat Morita, Stefanie Powers and more in the series that proved that sometimes all you need to solve a crime is a little good ol' country know-how.

From Amazon.co.uk

A viewer's favorite from the get-go, McCloud applied country-to-city humour to the popular police-series formula that exploded on TV networks in the early 1970s. To be sure, McCloud owed almost all of its success to the perfect casting of Dennis Weaver as Deputy Marshal Sam McCloud, of Taos, New Mexico, a good ol' boy crimefighter who spends the two-hour pilot ("Portrait of a Dead Girl") tracking a key witness who's escaped from his custody. This takes him to New York City, where the show's premise (involving McCloud's temporary assignment with Manhattan's 27th precinct, to "learn the methods of a large metropolitan police force") placed him at constant odds with his immediate superior, Chief Clifford (J.D. Cannon) as he partnered up with Sgt. Joe Broadhurst (Terry Carter, later on the original Battlestar Galactica) and pursued an on-and-off romance with Chris Coughlin (Diana Muldaur), a journalist who finds McCloud endlessly intriguing (not to mention newsworthy).

These characters are now far more appealing than the hoary plots that frequently found McCloud applying Southwest sleuthing to Big Apple crimes. Like McCloud himself, many of these 11 episodes are lanky and loose-jointed, and not quite as involving as nostalgic reverie might suggest. The first-season episodes are also the "condensed" versions, resulting from the subsequent combination (after their original broadcasts) of two original one-hour episodes into one 90-minute segment, hence the credits for two directors and two-layered plotlines in episodes like "Manhattan Manhunt," starring Richard Dawson as a Cockney-accented theater producer threatened by a would-be killer. (The second-season episodes are fully intact as originally shown.) And while the cost-cutting expediency of '70s TV production is painfully evident in cheesy process shots, blunt ADR recording, and oft-repeated stock footage, the tongue-in-cheek charm of McCloud remains fully intact, as Weaver adopts his signature line ("There ya go!") and commands his role with a gentleman's demeanor and a wry, fish-out-of-water perspective on big-city police work. --Jeff Shannon

The first season is the best. Unlike the second season that is made more like a triller-comedy, the first season was done straight. The only problem is that the six original first season episodes have been edited together into three episodes. Why didn't Universal release the original episodes in the UK and Europe like they did in Australia?

If you are of my era you would had been watching Sam McCloud in the 70's and enjoying watching it each week. This DVD is a nostalgic reminder to me of the good ol' days of TV cop and detective shows that came from the US. Shows like Banachek, Kojak, and MacMillan and Wife. I rate the DVD highly. It was a cheap purchase.

Great to see this TV series again. I was a teenager in the 1970s when I watched them on TV for the first time. Now here we are in the 21st century and I find the series still highly watchable ,much bettecter than the cold TV series of today. The stories were good but the thing that I liked about the show was the interaction between McCloud and his colleagues in the New York Police Dept. These people actually care about each other !
The first series was good but if I remember rightly it got better as the show went on and the characters were allowed to develop.
I find it strange how a lot of the story content which involved serious stuff like people being shot ,murdered can some how come second to enjoying the actual story and the characters in the series.

I bought this DVD box since I used to love McCloud and was somewhat disappointed - not by the great series, but by the low quality production. Nothing added: no making of, no subtitles, no other languages - absolutely nothing, just the plain old series, which could be a problem for foreign buyers. Picture quality is surprisingly good though. You get your money's worth with this box.

Despite technical shortcomings,this series is one of best TV Productions from the seventies. It is really sad that Universal is not listening to customers, especially since the best episodes are the later ones (seasons 6 & 7). On Blu-Ray disc we should expect a dramatic improvement in picture quality, hopefully such an edition is in planning...

Refreshing to show how common sense and country logic can triumph even on the mean streets of New York. This series has echoes of Miss Marple using her experiences of village life to solve brutal crimes. Here Mccloud uses his experience of New Mexico law enforcement to bring some New York criminals to justice.
