| Great detective series
I purchased the complete first season not knowing what to expect out of this old TV show. I was pleasantly surprised because the writing and acting is quite well done. Raymond Burr, like some other actors features a screen presence and charisma that are shared by very few people nowadays. This TV show is no exception -- Raymond Burr was good at playing the character where he was tough as nails on the outside, but a marshmallow on the inside. A particularly good episode showing this talent is "Officer Bobby" from the first season. There is also a fair amount of humor in the script, and it comes across very nicely. The only really "dated" thing about the show is Barbara Anderson's hair -- nowadays it looks really funny.

What impressed me partly was how beautiful San Francisco was in 1967. In every episode, they show a portion of San Francisco, and it is stunning! Very different from Columbo or other 70s TV shows that show Los Angeles. Los Angeles is ugly. Every single shot of San Francisco is breathtaking in this series.

Plus, there are some VERY famous guest stars in the first season. One is a household word by now. I won't spoil it for you who have not watched these yet. Overall, an excellent series. Highly recommended, even for kids.
