  • Harbor Command A ZIV Gem

    9.0
    Although a syndicated series, Harbor Command was head and shoulders above most of the network shows of the period.



    Good narration and great writing keep this series move at an action packed pace.



    The casting of character actors was spectacular and far better then the often seen retreads that showed up in series after series on the networks.



    Corey is great as Captain Baxter the stern head of the harbor command. A Joe Friday personality with more depth and better scripts to work with.



    I highly recommend this series to anyone capable of watching it through the lense of late fifties.



    I find that many reviewers trash shows from this period because they try and compare it to shows from different eras, which unfortunately leads them the inability to enjoy the program as it was meant to be viewed and enjoyed.
