    Thanks, I only saw the reply below that and thought that was the original post with the message from Image. Would be great if this is true as it should be available complete at long last. What Route 66 did for the rest of America, Naked City did for preserving the vanishing world of New York City in that era.

    FYI--the Amazon price on this (Naked City: 20 Star-Filled Episodes - 5 disc set) just dropped to $13.99, the lowest I've seen it. To recap--it has 10 episodes that weren't in the previous Image Entertainment releases.

    I hate to hear that. I was so hoping for at least one more set. I did want "The Deadly Guinea Pig" to make it on a release as that is probably my favorite episode of the hourly shows.

    Yes...WvtvGuy...it's a fabulous show. In fact it's in my top ten....along with Star Trek (TOS), The Fugitive, The Twilight Zone, Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel, Mission Impossible, Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Andy Griffith Show and Hill Street Blues.

    Horace McMahon, Paul Burke and Harry Bellaver really made a great team. Of course I loved John McIntire in the half hour version.

    I'm only a few episodes in but I'm thinking of biting on the smaller DVD release just to get more episodes!! This definitely needs season sets! So glad I discovered this show!

    Nice! I waited too long on the initial DVD releases, and then they went out-of-print. The new sets look interesting, but are still 'Best of' jumbles, so I've held off, just in case... and it looks like my strategy (yeah, that's it, not merely simple laziness and procrastination... LOL) has paid off.

    I locked in my $99.99 preorder before the price can jump back up closer to $179.99.

    I new it had to happen sooner or later. I'm just surprised that it took this long.

    The question is...will the set include all the great original commercials included on the three box sets? I don't want to be optimistic enough to hope for more of those, but I'm hoping it won't lose the extras we already had.

    Great news, thanks for the heads up. Now if someone would just do 'The Defenders' & 'Adventures in Paradise'.

    Anyone do the math of how it might break down episode/disc wise?

    I could envision five discs for the half hour season 1 episodes and 24 discs for 99 hour shows.

    I like the show a good deal but if I have one quibble it's that the main characters in the hour long show remained too static over the course of the run. Granted, they were not as important to the storytelling as the guest stars, but it wouldn't have hurt to have Detective Flint finally get married at some point!
