    I broke down and purchased the complete season of Wanted: Dead or Alive. I am a hug Steve McQueen fan and would welcome input from people on quality of series or the set.

    I'm also about half way through Season 2. Its a very entertaining show. I would say slightly above average compared to the 100+ western TV shows out at that time. McQueen is good in the show which would have lasted longer but McQueen moved on to movies and bigger things. Good Picture quality as mentioned.

    Yeah...by season 3...McQueen seems to BE the character Josh Randall. I think season three is the series highmark...especially the episode "Bounty On Josh". There's even an episode in season 3 about a tornado plowing through a town releasing the baddies from jail with a shot of brief but actual tornado footage,..the only time I have run across such a clip in a 50's western.

    I'm with everyone else. It's a very good series with good video/audio quality. I had vague recollections of seeing it as a kid and found it's held up very well. Most surprising was that the 30 minute format didn't feel rushed for most of the episodes. I'm glad I picked up the series.

    Hey John,

    I have watched many episodes and feel that Steve McQueen role as Josh Randall was very well done. Josh Randall's character is suited for Steve McQueen and i am glad that i have the ability to watch this show on dvd.

    TV Shows on DVD is reporting yet ANOTHER release of WDOA, this time a "Special Edition" with new features not previously available on Sept 10th. By my count this is now the 3rd time this has released.

    Have any of the releases corrected the sped-up PAL transfers of Season 1?

    I have really enjoyed watching dead or alive as there are some amazing episodes!! I watched the episode "Jason" and it was very good and leads into the next few episodes were Josh Randall trains a young bounty hunter!!

    I am so glad that these old western shows have been released on DVDs as I am a huge fan of the old west. I hope to picked up more of the old west shows over the next few years!!
