That certainly looks interesting enough to do a blind buy on. Looking over the description of the series, I'm actually surprised it didn't make it.

I'm a Garner fan and never heard of this. It sounds promising so I'm sure I willl be getting it.

I have a few, very poor visual quality episodes, but the quality of the series shines through.  Most likely a buy for me, if I can decide I can afford it.

The price point is a bit prohibitive for a "one and done" series. Perhaps the cost comes down later or eventually find it online used for a good bargain.

Is this pressed (as Harry-O initially was) or DVD-r? Sorry for the inevitable question...

I hope that Bret Maverick and The New Maverick will follow from the Archive, and that WHV releases all 5 seasons of Maverick.

After 3-4 months a new release is usually added to WA sales. They have been having a 20% off sale about once every 6 weeks and ocassionally a 25-30% off sale. So if you can wait awhile it will eventually be on sale at the archive for $34.99-$39.99.

I saw one episode when it was originally on 41 or 42 years ago. I didn't like it and never watched another one. Don't recall anymore than that.

When I first saw the release news for Nichols, I wondered if the Bret Maverick series might be coming at some future date . . . soon. I hope so.

I have never seen Nichols, but I like James Garner, and might eventually get this.

 

I also hope that we will continue to see releases for Sugarfoot. Nice to see Bret and Bart in Season 1.

Of course that's the last episode which was basically their admission the show wasn't working and had it continued it would have proceeded in that retooled fashion.

YES!!! 

 

Never seen the series. But its JAMES GARNER.

Been hoping this would be out on DVD at some point.

 

Now someone needs to bring HEC RAMSEY to DVD.

   I have had them all from film for years. Its okay. Typical Garner type role and I must say that they did manage to use young Margot Kidder's cleavage to great advantage!

I watched several episodes of the show when it originally aired. I liked it, but I was a teenager back then, so who knows how good it really was? The drastic change of style in the last episode was not necessarily proof that the show didn't work quality-wise; but may have simply been an attempt to bolster ratings. The original concept seemed to build on Garner's knack for playing protagonists who didn't want much to do with violence if they could avoid it.

Got this a few days ago.  Pressed Discs.

To my non-expert eyes the picture looks pretty good on my 32 inch INSIGNIA TV/BLU-RAY COMBO.

 

Watched the first 8 episodes. All about the same quality from the acting to the story.

None were great but none were bad.

Garner is his usual charming self.

Seems to be quite a few cleavage shots of Ms. Kidder. ;)
