| a fascinating blast from the past
I just watched the four episodes of Dick Tracy available on DVD from Alpha Video. I'd read reviews of this early TV series which described it as an ultra-low budget affair and I got what I expected - and more. This is a very low budget series, but I quickly found myself hooked. The ongoing storyline from episode to episode is enjoyably addictive. I was sad when I finally reached the end of the last episode on the DVD. I wanted more. I'd love to see what happens next! Ralph Byrd is terrific as Dick Tracy. He's honest, brave, and fair. There's good chemistry between Tracy and his partner Pat too. The "live" vibe of this show is another plus. These episodes provide a fascinating glimpse at early 1950's television. I just wish there were more episodes available. We need more of this Dick Tracy TV series on DVD!
