The second season of The Streets of San Francisco is being released on Region 2 in the UK in four weeks time on Monday 14th September (the same day as the second season of The Untouchables and the sixth season of Hawaii Five-O). Like with the first season on Region 2 both volumes are being released in one DVD box. I've bought the first season recently and should be getting it in the post sometimes this week. Looking forward to seeing it as I had to return back the Region 1 set for the first season as the packaging was damaged. It'll be alright with the Region 2 set as the DVD box will be plastic.

I have S1-S2 on dvd. I would like to see the remaining season released. This was a classic show. I watch Bullitt on the weekend and that only spike my interest to wanting more of the Streets of San Francisco.

I received my S4 (V1/V2) yesterday, but the set was damage. The dvd holder has snapped causing the disk to rub against each other, which could lead to scratching. I contacted Amazon.ca and they sent me a new set, which i received today. I have return the defective copies to amazon.
I have watched a few episodes, including the episode with Paul Sorvino (NY Cop) and Don Gordon (Bullitt). The episode was amazing. I have the "STREETS) up there as one of my favorite police drama!!
I have pre-order S5. which means i can strike off the STREETS as another police drama that i have completed on dvd!!

I watch an episode with the lovely Stefanie Powers as wife of a convict. She was amazing in her role along with her incredible beauty!!

I just watched the 3rd season episode Mask of Death with John Davidson. This episode freaked my brother and I out when it was aired. It still gives me chills. That homicida,l female impersonator character was unforgettable, it desires a full length movie. During the 1970's the three networks released a number of made-for-tv movies. This could have been one of the greats.

I just started watching this series, switching off between this and MANNIX. I barely remember it as a child but my parents liked it. My dad referred to it simply as STREETS. I have watched the pilot and the first three episodes. Terrific stuff. Wish the seasons weren't split. Makes it a pain to buy and store. But loving the show.

I found this show a few years ago, as a blind buy, because I was a huge Michael Douglas fan and had never seen the show before. Needless to say, I love this show simply for the wonderful chemistry between Douglas and Malden, and the great guest stars, as well as the nice location filming.
I'm a huge MANNIX fan as well, and am eager to complete that series, which is one of my top 5 favorites. Welcome aboard to both shows, Alan, you have plenty of great viewing ahead of you!
BTW, if you enjoy STREETS and MANNIX, I also recommend CANNON and the original HAWAII FIVE-O. These shows pretty much defined the crime drama/detective genre for the 70s, and are true classics.

Thanks for the welcome, Jeff*H.
I just picked up the first two seasons of CANNON. Am holding off on HAWAII FIVE-O because I am also watching COMBAT and THE LIEUTENANT. But watched two STREETS episodes last night, particularly enjoying guest star William Windom's sweet portrayal of a good-hearted married man caught in the whirlpool of a tease. I particularly enjoy seeing all the guest stars on the QM Productions like STREETS who also appeared in my all-time favorite show THE FUGITIVE. Based on the episodes I have seen, I am going to pick up seasons two, three and four of STREETS.

I watched a couple of episodes of the STREETS last night from S4. I am looking forward to S5 coming out at the end of October as this will mean another classic police drama has been released.

One good thing about being so late getting into series like STREETS and MANNIX is that I don't have to wait so long to get complete sets. I know it was years between seasons 2 and 3 of STREETS and I think MANNIX sets have been coming out for years as well, but now both STREETS and MANNIX are about to be finished. Looks like I got on board just in time, not that I will get to the final seasons of either series any time soon :)

I love that too Alan, coming late to a 'new' series that's already been available to fans for a long time, like it was for me with Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea or Hawaii Five-O now all there finished ready to go and dig into.

I am finding that I am splitting my time between STREETS and MANNIX and enjoying both for different reasons. Started STREETS disc three of season one part one last night and watched the second episode on that disc with my lunch today. On paper Malden and Douglas doesn't seem to work but on screen they are dynamite. In this episode today Malden breaks his ankle because he was with a green rookie, not Douglas, and it was so apparent when the two separated that their chemistry makes the show.

I just bought season three parts 1 and 2 today...the only thing I don't like about this show is these blasted split season sets.

3. Good for the performance of Chris Robinson as weird enforcer Jack Constantine
4. A variation of the blackboard jungle theme, the character of the old teacher kidnapping hood students and chain them to a classroom from a closed down high school turns into a prison-high school
5. For the study on Mike Stone’s loss of hearing
6. The theme of corporate greed and for Bradford Dillman’s ruthless executive performance
7. For James Woods’ performance as an unbridled sailor-hood, the runaway chained Keller and Mellon characters that remind Joseph Losey's Figures in the Landscape

3. The runaway character of the charlatan doctor living a double life
4. The character of the avenging lawyer son killing the judges who destroy the life of his father
5. For Paul Sorvino’s performance as the street-smart New York cop and the fish out of the water (the pilot for the series Bert D’Angelo/Superstar)

Actor William Windom appears in many STREETS. Tell me the episode title or the synopsis.
The robbed newspaper salesman is the season 1 episode entitled IN THE MIDST OF STRANGERS which is a very good entry.
Find the file:

with guest stars DAVID WAYNE, LOUIS LATHAM, RAMON BIERI, ROBERT FOXWORTH as DENNIS HAILEY

Thanks, John.
I just this moment finished the first episode on S1V1 D4 about the thieving gypsies. Quite good.
There are only three series I know the episode titles to for every episode by heart: THE FUGITIVE (1960s), STAR TREK TOS, and THE TWILIGHT ZONE (1960s).
