I reviewed season one of the Untouchables some time ago, and finished by saying that I hoped a UK release of season two would follow. I am pleased to see that it now has, and the positive comments I made about the first season apply equally to this new series. Nicely remastered the black and white film looks fresh and clear and the mono soundtrack is pretty good too.

The Wikipedia article - The Untouchables (1959 TV series) - has been updated and now contains full details of each episode in this season too, and is worth checking out if you want to know which are featured on this DVD collection. This series features guest stars such as Telly Savalas and Russ Conway - no, not THAT one! and in episode 7 we also get to meet the Purple Gang - not the Granny Takes a Trip version!

If you enjoyed season one then season two will not disappoint. Season three volume one was released on DVD in the US in August this year (2009) and volume two will be released in November. Hopefully a UK release will follow next year.

Anyone who likes the gangster films depicted in the 1930s should not miss this series.
They just do not make films and TV series like this anymore, good scripts and quality acting from real professionals.

The quality of the sound and vision is excellently copied using Digital Remastering processes. A series not to be missed at a very good price. Can't wait to collect the whole series.

Series two maintains the high standards of the first, as Eliot Ness and his men continue their battle against the gangsters and criminals of the prohibition era.
Robert Stack's excellent performance as Eliot Ness lends his character a quitely spoken, yet great authority, and along with the rest of his men, a real likeability.

Amongst the 32, fifty-minute episodes, theres a two-part story "The Big Train", in which Al Capone's forthcoming transfer from his prison in Atlanta to the newly built Alcatraz, reveals a big plot to spring Capone from the train while on it's journey between the two prisons.
Walter Winchell's occasional narration brings a nice documentary feel to proceedings. This is a very entertaining crime series, directed at a good pace. A number of familiar guest stars appear, including Neville Brand, Steve Cochran, Barry Morse, and Elizabeth Montgomery, in a role thats far removed from her sweet natured character Samantha in the 1960's US TV comedy series "Bewitched".
The black and white picture and sound quality are good.

The soundtrack languages are: English, French, German, Spanish.
The subtitle languages are: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish.

Season Two continues where Season One left off Robert Stack stars again as Eliot Ness Federal Agent and his `Untouchables' Set in the 1930's. Guest stars include the likes of Elizabeth (Bewitched) Montgomery as as Rusty Heller (for which she received an Emmy Award nomination), John (Wagon Train) McIntire, Jan Sterling, and last but not least Neville Brand appears again as Al Capone. Once again the series is in black and white, but don't be put off by this, as it suits this series well; as does the Semi-documentary narration by Walter Winchell. All backed up with a cracking musical score by Nelson Riddle. - Cost me less than £1.60 per CD with an Amazon seller. Not to be missed!

Very high standard of writing and performance every episode told as a docu-drama with the serrated edged voice of Walter Winchell narrating and the marvelous portrayal of Eliot Ness by Robert Stack who manages to slightly underplay the character in such a way as to promote the story not the star. I could watch these again and again .

Excellent. The picture quality is outstanding, the acting and originality, equal. Robert Stack is the best. Some series made in the 50s and 60s look artificial and are not believable, but The Untouchables has maintained it's impact. Well recommended!

One does tend to wonder why crime continued in Chicago as in each episode Elliot Ness and his Untouchables kill the 'bad guys' by the dozen and nearly always get to arrest the bad 'Boss Men'. Yet a week later up pops another Master Criminal who is threatening to destablise Chicago! However it is all a good viewing, with dramatic car chases, lots of action, a genuine hero, and lots of 'bad guys in black hats'! If you do buy the DVD, and I suggest you do, then beware of overkill. Watch an episode a week perhaps, as I did in the 1960's. I used to rush home from the pub to catch Elliot and his boys at 1030 of an evening. No recording in those days! After getting the DVD I saw about 4 in a row, but after a while it DOES get a bit of the same and you find it hard to recall which Beer Baron Elliot is after this time. In their suits and big hats the 'bad guys' all look the same, and sound the same after a while! So view them as intended, one a week and don't be put off by the occasional rather weak story line, or the basic car chases---this is 60's filming technology after all folks! Don't be put off by the Black and white filming. The guy in the blue jacket is next to the guy in the green jacket!! Pete M
