Much like the first volume on DVD, "Cannon" has seen better days. These transfers lack much in way of quality, and look a bit on the grisly side. Detail is blah, fleshtones are not in the best condition and color saturation is rather feeble. Also distracting are the mountains of blemishes, scratches and dirt pieces on the episode prints. Image quality is rather soft too. Hopefully the visuals will pick up in future seasons on DVD, but I'm not holding my breath. 

 

The English Mono tracks are okay, but as you'd expect, nothing special. The tracks are in good shape, as I did not detect any pops, hisses or other audio defects. The sound elements themselves - dialogue, music, sound effects - are audible, but that's all there really is to say. Nothing sounds sharp, and sounds age appropriate overall.

English closed captions are available through your television. 

 

There are Episodic Promos for all the episodes. Still fun, in an antiquated kind-of way.

 

Like the first volume, the presentations of the episodes are on the lackluster side and there are no substantial extras. You gotta love William Conrad as Canon, but you need to REALLY love him (or the show) to invest in this set.
