This first volume of the second season of "Cannon" is not pretty to look at. At best, they look like poor VHS dubs. They are awash in grain, and the prints are downright messy: scratches, dirt pieces and blemishes plague the episodes. Detail and color saturation are poor too, and it can be hard to make out the action in the darkly-lit scenes. Unfortunately, these are pretty unbearable. 

 

The English Mono tracks are better than the transfers, but not by too much. I was surprised by the high fidelity, but other than that, there is a slight hissing in the background at times. The sound effects, music and dialogue are audible and in good shape, and I guess that counts. Nothing really sharp, but listenable. 

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 season releases, this second season of "Cannon" looks and sounds pretty lackluster. Like before, you gotta love William Conrad as Canon, but you need to REALLY love him (or the show) to invest in this set.
