This is the first time I've watched this series - I prefer old tv shows and hate the way modern shows seem to feel that they need to pack in as much violence and gore as possible to be a success. This is tv from a simpler time - with it's own problems - sexism and racism are pretty rife in these old shows and that in itself is a valuable lesson. That said, I really enjoyed this first season of Iron side - it's no all about the detective work but also a window into the characters -their morals, the time they're living in etc. It's not fast paced whodunnit stuff - but it's very good nonetheless.

It was weird watching Raymond Burr in a role other than Perry Mason, but he cleans up good as Chief Ironside. I was saddened by the accident that left Chief Ironside paralyzed after the pilot. However his grit, determination and acceptance of the situation and his ability to find new ways to adapt to his situation was very inspiring. There were several interesting episodes but it was the character development, watching them mature through experiences especially his young assistant Mark, team work and loyalty that struck me as the indelible lessons of this series. I look forward to the release of the rest of the series on DVD.

I won't comment on the quality of the films themselves - most people interested in this DVD will know just what a good detective series Ironside was - but the presentation of this DVD set is really good too. The DVDs are well packaged in four separate DVD cases and it looks like a lot of care has gone into it.
