A short-lived comedic TV show from the 1970s, CHICO AND THE MAN followed the ups and downs of two guys from wildly different backgrounds as they worked in a gas station together.

Well who's job is it? To put an entire season of Chico and the Man on DVD? I love this show and enjoyed TV Land's very short run of the classic show a few years ago. When I found out it was coming out on DVD I was ecstatic. However it is NOT season 1. It is one disc with only six "hand picked" episodes of the entire series and they're not in any kind of order...

1. The Pilot
2. If I Were a Rich Man
3. Chico and the Van
4. Chico's Cousin Pepe
5. Chico's Padre
6. Ed Talks to God

There are no extras. Just a French, English, or Spanish subtitle option.
It still gets 5 stars (Loooking Goood!) because I love the show and you can't beat the price. So if you want a handful of of Chico and the Man eps for under $10? This is for you.

Now if jou don' mind I gotta wash my uncle's '64 Chevy with poms poms on the antenna, celophane seat covers, and a little dog in the back window with the head keeps going up and down!

How wonderful for Warner Bros. Entertainment to finally release six episodes of "Chico and the Man" starring Jack Albertson and Freddie Prinze.
I remember seeing the very first episode on September 13, 1974 when I was 11. The show was funny and when Prinze came on as "Chico", I didn't know what to think of him at first, but the man was funny. He had me laughing throughout the program until my stomach hurt. It became my favorite show and I did not like to miss it.
I also saw the Million Dollar Rip-off (1976-tv) starring Freddie Prize.
When the tragic announcement was made on the news that Prinze had shot himself and later passed away, January 22, 1977, I had a real hard time believing it. When you are young, you think that when a person goes to the hospital, they will be fine. However, Freddie Prinze left us.
After reading the book, "The Freddie Prinze Story" by Maria Pruetzel and John A. Barbour, then I understood why Freddie left us. The stardom, the pressure, constant traveling, the drugs, he would get lonely, depressed and upset. That one night with Quaaludes and a gun, he was upset and even though his friends and his manager tried to help him that night, Freddie wasn't in a good state of mind and had sleeplessness. The gun went off and Dusty found Prinze slumped over in the hallway. Freddie went through periods of holding his gun not wanting to be without it.

For many of us, we have not seen Freddie Prinze since his last appearance as "Chico" or his clips from "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson".
This DVD release of "Chico and the Man" is a real treat and a keepsake.

The first episode, the test pilot episode, aired, September 13, 1974. Jack Albertson, Freddie Prinze, Rodolfo Hoyos Jr.

This DVD is a great show that would have been remembered even more if Freddie Prinze didn't die and the show had gone for a few more seasons. This show was a hit, being featured on the cover of TV Guide Magazine 3 times.

In my opinion, the pilot episode is the best episode. The acting is great, the comedy is great, the writing is great, therefore it is a great show. Also a good episode is "Chico's Cousin Pepe", with one of the greatest musicians of all time, Jos? Feliciano, as the guest star. Although his acting is pretty bad, he performs a number of songs that are just good music. Also "Chico's Padre" starring Cesar Romero as Chico's father. My only complaint is that there are only 6 episodes, and if you search on a search-engine "lol tv" you'll find a website that has about 10 episodes of Chico And The Man that you can watch FOR FREE. 3 episodes at the website are on this DVD. But, if you want to pay the money to watch the show on a TV, get this DVD.

This is a wonderful tv series that ran from 1974-1978. I watched it
faithfully every week in its original run. It really needs to be
out on dvd (preferably all in one large complete series collection).
It's family-friendly, clever, sweet, addictive, and smile-inducing !!

Come on studios, owners, and whoever else has it in their grasp to put
these timeless treasures out to us, the little people. Most of the
people (nowadays) are disillusioned and disgusted with most of the
current tv program garbage that is being heaped on us by "suits"
that could not give a Rat's (y.k.w.) about us. I think that a lot of
kids and young people in this time period would like better shows on
television, too. Retro-tv series on retro-tv channels are our only
other way to see consistent High Quality programming .

Come on, Suits !!! Get the show on the Road !!!

Freddie Prize and this show are mostly remembered by 70s children such as myself. But his tragic 1977 suicide relegated him to obscutiry until the rise of his son's career and our generation became old enough to demand things like this from our childhood.

It's as good as I remember, and even better now that I'm old enough to get the jokes and habla muy poquito espanol (speak a little Spanish for the monolingual out there).

Prinze as Chico essentially (and subtly) points out the stupidity of prejudice to the boozing bigot Ed Brown, and the triumph of a positive attutude and the human spirit. In fact, as a child, most of the people around me hated Hispanics. As a ten year old watching this show, I figured they couldn't be that bad (says a lot about the influence of television on children).

Quit giving this release 5 stars!
I agree with you. We want all the episodes! How can one rate a DVD with only a few selected ones?
