    There was a old post, but it did not see it was relevant to my posting about the show. I watched an episode of Banacek that had hot/young Stefanie Powers. The episode also had some interesting supporting cast, like Ben Davidson and Conrad Janis.

    I watched an episode tonight that had the lovely Vicky Principal!!

    Banacek was very good short-lived series!! I really like Peppard as Banacek!! Peppard's humor was very good through the episodes!

    I remember seeing the show in reruns on A&E quite a while back,It was a good show, Peppard really made the character work.

    Ouch! I bought it for my mother several years ago and hadn't even thought to check it since. That's in line with what has happened with Daniel Boone.

    The new region 2 release of the two seasons of Banacek is out and available from Amazon.co.uk. If anyone gets it, perhaps they could fill us in about the run times and any editing. Thanks

    I used to like Bancek because the plots were clever but more so because unlike so many of the other series around at the same time, the audience didn't know about them until the end any more than the characters did. I did manage to work out a couple of them but several were quite ingeneous and I had to weait until Banacek explained how it was done at the end of the episode!

    They really need to reissue the Banacek series. There is njo way that each set is $100 each. That's insane, and there were two sets released, not to mention a complete series set. This is exactly why filesharing remains available for fans of these television shows. Make these shows available and keep them in print.
