Outstanding Drama Continues

"I recently finished watching the entire first season of THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO and the episodes were even better than I remembered them. Karl Malden and Michael Douglas work wonderfully together and every story has the mark of a high-quality production, with beautiful location scenery and top-notch guest stars.
As with HAWAII FIVE-O, the second season of STREETS isn't quite up to the level of the first year, but there are still quite a number of outstanding episodes. Highlights include HAREM, where former teen idol Rick Nelson plays a boyish pimp who lures teenage girls into prostitution; A WRONGFUL DEATH, in which Inspector Keller is accused of shooting an unarmed youth; and BETRAYED, featuring Martin Sheen as an ambitious businessman who uses every tool he can think of -including robbery and murder- while climbing the ladder of success.
Looking ahead, the good news is that the best is yet to come: the third season of THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO is the finest year of all. Meanwhile, don't pass up this latest collection of exciting police stories in The City By The Bay. You won't be disappointed.
EXCELLENT SERIES DISGRACEFUL MARKETING TACTICS

"You cannot fault the series itself, I love it and am so glad to be re-visiting "Streets".
I think I will have to reconsider buying anymore volumes due to the disgraceful tactis used by the studio to sell the dvds. I could not believe that Season TWO Volume ONE has only ELEVEN episodes. Why the volumes one and two when there are so few episodes in the season.
For goodness sake increase the price by 10.00 and sell it as a complete season."

"It's great to see what San Francisco looked like nearly 40 years ago when Union Square had the old stores like Roos Atkins and the old San Francisco ride at Fisherman's wharf. I miss seeing those from when I was a kid. It's nice to take a trip down memory lane and see Karl Malden and Michael Douglas work together. I just wish that they would release the entire season and not split it up. It would be nice if there were some extras included too like they did in the first season volume one."
Solid Police Procedural Series

"The Streets of San Francisco is part of the legacy of Quinn Martin, who was one of television's alltime most successful producers, responsible for some of television's most popular action/adventure series. Martin was the producer for such popular series as The Untouchables, The FBI, Cannon, and Barnaby Jones.
The Streets of San Francisco followed the pattern of most of Martin's shows. There were divided into three acts and an epilogue, and the guest stars were introduced at the beginning of each episode. The show feature veteran, Oscar-winning actor Karl Malden (who during this time starred in a series of popular commercials for American Express credit cards) and Michael Douglas, son of Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas.
Malden played veteran SF homicide cop Mike Stone, who was newly paired with rookie detective Steven Keller, played by Douglas. Following the Naked City model of police dramas, Stone showed the green Keller the ropes of policing the city while Keller used his criminology decree and understanding of modern technology to balance the equation. Darleen Carr has an occasional role as Stone daughter and Keller's eventual love interest.
This was a solid, enjoyable series and the teaming of Malden and Douglas was an excellent one. This show is one that is still entertaining almost forty years later.
