Richard, Thanks for coming up with the information about "The Mask of Death". It's great news, since one always has to worry about music edits on CBS releases. Here's hoping for more Streets, even if we have to put up with split seasons. I wish this show had the "guardian angel" that Mannix obviously does at CBS.
It's sheer Heaven for sure to be a huge Mannix fan these days yes, JoAnn must be over the Moon with joy!
Nice looking final covers, especially Vol. 2.
It is great to see S3 is being released. I have S1/S2 on dvd and watch it from time to time as the story lines are very good. Michael Douglas and Karl Malden complement each other. The only issue is that Keller would never go from college graduate to police detective as you would have to work your way up the ranks.
One bit of trivia here. When it was shown in Germany they changed Douglas' character name from Steve Keller to Steve Heller, presumably because 'Keller' is the German word for basement and cellar.
Comparing the look of Streets of San Francisco to Ironside is like comparing Hawaii Five-0 to Hawaiian Eye!
It's too bad that the first SF police show shot on location "The Lineup" from the 50s is likely to never make it to DVD. The few episodes I've seen offer a similar look of the city as it was in the 1950s.
Anyone know what was the first primetime drama to be filmed on location in the outdoors environment? I thought it might have been the 1950s Dragnet (even though it was in Los Angeles).
I haven't seen enough of the 50s Dragnet to comment but Decoy with Beverly Garland from 1957 has some great NYC location shooting. Also, weren't there some syndicated shows in the 50s that were shot in Europe?
I think many shows were film in the outdoor environment like Sierra, Emergency, Adam-12, Hawaii-Five-O, etc. The Streets of San Francisco was good show as it had many scenes from SF circa 1970s, especially not seeing the pyramid building in DT SF. The show also had some great scenes of Fisherman's warf, precidio, golden gate park, etc. I like Sierra that shows the yosemite park or hawaii five-o (show hawaii) or Adam-12 show the streets of SF or CHiPs that show highway in and around LA.
The old television had great acting and scripts not like what is created today. Today youth has not experience great acting that was done in the past. Can you name the new action hero or dramatic actor? Where are the Paul Newman's/Robert Redfords/Steve McQueen/Dustin Hoffman/arne/etc?

The Streets of San Francisco: Season 4: Volumes 1 & 2 - TVShowsOnDVD.com news article
Good new for "streets" fans... hopefully all these CBS releases mean that more "Love Boat" is possibly coming some day.
Great news. That´s fast. They´ll release it not two months after Season 3.
Terrific news, it's been a pretty good CBS classic crime drama year so far. Hopefully Season 5 isn't too far behind now and also fingers crossed they will stay in this happy release mood of course, like taking notice of a visibly still high interest in Barnaby Jones for example.
Excited Season 4 will be out so soon after season 3. As soon as the amazon pre-order gets posted I'm in!
Have emailed Revelation Films, asking if they're going to be releasing the third season of The Streets of San Francisco, and they replied saying there were no plans. Only other possibilities would be Acorn Media's UK branch (who are releasing the first season of Father Dowling Investigates) and CBS/P's UK branch.
Am really liking the front cover artwork for the Season Four half volume sets (especially the bottom half of Season Four - Volume One with the Golden Gate bridge.
i have started to watch S1/S2 again as part of the build up to the July 2012 release. I am a big fan 1970s police drama and it was one reason that i consider a career in law enforcement. However, i realize that i like business more and decide to purse a career in business. However, i still have a tied to law enforcement, especially on technology including the gathering of evidence or patrolling or Police Tactics, CSI, etc.
The Streets of San Francisco was indeed a great show.They just don't make them like this anymore.I really had thought that CBS/Paramount would never produce anymore sets beyond season two,as it's been so long since since the last dvd release.I could'nt be happier on the announcement of seasons 3 & 4 being released this year.They did an excellent job on the audio and video quality.The show looked amazing on dvd,even far better than it looked when originally broadcast in the 1970's on tv.I would guess that a season 5 release is a good bet.That would allow CBS/Paramount to eventually offer a full series release.A few months ago I would have thought the chance of this was slim to none.Great news on the release dates for the series.
I love Streets of San Francisco as a kid. I especially like backdrop of San Francisco. I was in San Francisco in 2005 and looking the images from the tv series took me back to taking the BART and coming up in downtown SF and looking at the architecture. I ate dinner at fisherman's warf and look out into the harbor.
I was always amazed with the chemistry between Karl Malden and Michael Douglas. The young cop with the season veteran was amazing plot lines. I have watched many episodes and there has been some amazing plots. I like the build up the cases and the evidence gathering as part of the case solving. I would rate streets of san francisco with Hawaii Five-O as the best crime shows of their era.
