During its 1959-1960 season, many quality episodes came out of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," along with a star-studded cast: Dick Van Dyke, Laurence Harvey, Macdonald Carey, Robert Vaughn, Burt Reynolds, and Barbara Baxley, to name a few.

Another interesting tidbit: Alfred Hitchcock not only opens and closes with a synopsis of each show, but in season five he also wears the director's hat and directs the first and second episodes, "Arthur" and "The Crystal Trench."

Some of the show's highlights for me: "Man From the South", "Appointment at Eleven", "Dead Weight", "Road Hog", "An Occurrence at Owl Creek", "Graduation Class", "Hitch Hike", "Party Line" and "Hooked". To name a few of the well written stories in this package. Everyone has their own favorites, likes and dislikes, of the many episodes throughout the seven year run. And beyond.

And in these thirty-eight dark half hour episodes, mystery and suspense fans can rejoice as Alfred Hitchcock Presents: season five, one of the finest out of its seven season run, proves once again that the best direction and performance in classic TV entertainment is right here--at its very best. The writing, too, never seemed to change in its seven year run. Always the best story telling in TV history, much like The Twilight Zone. Suspense and mystery was always the name of the game for Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Now here is to The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, which hopefully is released following these DVD box sets, and in its entirety, no less.
