    Just announced - Season 1, Volume 1 of Jake and the Fatman is coming to DVD on July 8th!

    It's a big day for William Conrad on DVD - the first half of Season 1 of his 1970s PI show Cannon also streets that day. Here's your cover art.

    I never saw this show, but am a fan of cop/PI mysteries, and a fan of Matlock. I also like William Conrad, but I know him more for his voice than his acting in TV and movies. His old-time radio work (especially as Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke and in performances on Suspense and Escape!) is fantastic, and his narration on The Fugitive is great too. So, I'm debating trying this series out. Any recommendations/suggestions from fans?

    If you're even remotely a fan of William Conrad then you shouldn't miss Jake and the Fatman, or Cannon for that matter. He is funny, and insightful in both shows. Besides Joe Penny is real easy on the eyes.

    Here's the cover art for Volume 2 of Season 1, due out December 2.

    After trying the first disc of Volume 1, I'm hooked! What a great mystery show, a kind of Columbo/Matlock hybrid. Working my way through this set has been a lot of fun.
