I love watching detective shows of the past. I am not sure what draws me to them, the acting, the music, the formula? I just cannot put my finger on it. All I can tell you is that when I see one on TV, I freeze, that is what I will be watching. Many shows have had a decent second and third life in re-runs, but a show that I remember watching in reruns in the early 1980s, that I have not seen since, is the classic crime show, The FBI. If you are a fan I have good news AND GREAT NEWS first the good news, the Warner Archive released season 1 of the series a few months ago and they just now released season 2. Now the great news. The Retroist is going to give away a copy of Season 2 to a lucky follower of the site.
Before I get to the how to win, here is a little background on the show:
The Sixties were kicking into full swing as The FBI moved into its sophomore season. Agents Erskine (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., more taciturn than ever) and Rhodes (Stephen Brooks) are dispatched to the far-flung corners of the USA by Assistant Director Ward (Philip Abbott) to tackle the big ones – kidnapping, extortion, murder, espionage and terror. Produced with full government cooperation with stories drawn from the real files of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, The FBI set a new high mark in the depiction of law enforcement on television, giving viewers TV that was equally thrilling as it was realistic. Guest stars to be found in this 4-disc, 16-episode collection include Ralph Meeker, Robert Blake, Jack Lord, Richard Anderson, Fritz Weaver, Suzanne Pleshette and Ralph Bellamy.
Now how to win a copy of Season 2. It is easy. You just need to contact me with the following information.
NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS
Now the how to contact part
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, you can comment below, you can DM me on Twitter, send me a message on Facebook or you can do all 4. The good news, especially for you eager gamer types, is that each way of contacting me will count as an entry, so you can have 4 entries in total (you can only win one copy though). So get clicking folks and I cannot wait to get The FBI out the door to our lucky winner.
