Although this series is over thirty years old, Chips has aged quite gracefully. This is due in part to great chemistry between the actors (all perfectly cast) and mostly lighthearted, fun scripts. If you're a dedicated fan seeking to feed your "nostalgia monster", you'll find yourself in the middle of a retro buffet! It just doesn't get any better than this!
With the recent trend being to release DVD "half seasons" at full season prices (Love Boat, Cannon, etc.), it's nice to see that fans of Chips have been treated fairly. An entire season of Chips is well worth the reasonable list price, and Amazon currently has a wonderful pre-order price to make this an irresistible purchase!
Let's hope that future seasons arrive in a timely manner! I just can't get enough!
Season one was released on SINGLE SIDED discs. This set is DOUBLE SIDED.
The extras include a documentary presented by Erik Estrada, entitled "The Real CHiPs", and a feature-length special called "The Greatest Adventures of CHiPs" that recounts (according to the package) "the coolest cases from Seasons One and Two." The extras are presented on a fourth disc, which is single-sided.
This season (unlike the first) also includes English, Spanish, and Portuguese audio, and English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French subtitles.
Overall, an excellent release from Warner Bros. of an excellent NBC series from MGM, and like I said, I heartily recommend it.
My only real complaint is that the sound is often terrible. At many points you have to turn it up all the way to hear the dialogue, then the music comes blaring in and you fall out of your seat. Also, it would have been nice to have other cast members make some sort of commentary or appearance, but along with nearly all of WB's other dvd sets, they refuse to pay anyone for their time, travel or comments, so once again their cheapness only hurts the fans who supported the show in the first place. But they know we will buy it anyway.
Still very much worth it, if for nothing else, Ponch's extended disco, freeze frame scenes at the end of one of the episodes. Man, this stuff gets funky!
Shame also the picture could not have been re-mastered and last negative is the DVD's are flippers which I really hate.
However it is still great to see Jon & Ponch in action again.
I may also be wrong on this point but the menus seem to use the season 1 theme and the episodes are in Dolby Digital 1/0
In fact this season takes me all the way back to memory lane to my childhood days when CHiPs was on NBC every Saturday night & when this show became even more popular, especially since this season is even better, more upgraded, and quite a bit more sophisticated than the First Season was with more action, more co-stars, more accidents, and had major improvement on both the CHiPs music scoring and improvement on the CHiPs theme song from it's 1977-78 Season along with the fact that this season had even more viewers than the 1st Season did.
This 1978-1979 Season is also the season when CHiPs was moved to Saturdays & when Brianne Leary joins the cast & crew as Jon & Ponch's spunky fellow CHP Officer Sindy Cahill which was eventually replaced by Randi Oakes as Officer Bonnie Clark as the new 7-Charles in the 3rd Season since this was the only season with Sindy, plus this was the season when Lou Wagner joined the cast & crew as CHP mechanic(Harlan Arliss)making this the first year that this show had a female co-star and a special CHP technician.Read more ›

Great Classic show, although the box cover plastic was starting to bubble from storage it was not enough to make me return it as it was cosmetic.Published 6 days ago by Tom Jr

What has everyone got against double sided discs? Yes it would be nice if everything was put on single sided discs, but this is NOT a perfect world. Besides. Double sided discs save space, and save the customer money on the purchase in the long run. I have several programs on double sided... Read More
