Please do not confuse the lower rated opinions of Kojak Season 2 on this thread with the upcoming Season 2 release by Shout!.
As someone who has purchased several Shout! Factory releases (Adam-12, Simon & Simon, Dennis The Menace, Mr. Ed) you will not be disappointed because they offer the original network run episodes and do not replace any music. The video transfers are in mint condition.
You will not have any problems with these Kojak DVD's because the Shout! releases are specifically made for equipment made in the United States, not for overseas machines.
The only way to have the three remaining seasons of Kojak released is to purchase each season as it becomes available.
Simon & Simon has fallen victim to fans not stepping up and rewarding Shout! by purchasing seasons 2-5. Now, Shout! has stated they have no plans to release the three remaining seasons of that wonderful series.
Shout! Factory invests a lot of money to give fans what they ask for. Let's show them our appreciation by purchasing these guality television series when they become available.
Sound and video quality are TOP notch amazing. So good, that it makes you feel like your watching them on CBS back in the day on their original broadcasts.
So, if you're a fan and been waiting for this..BUY IT!!
I hope Shout Factory soon and quickly releases the remaining seasons of Kojak. This great show is too long overdue to be obscured to crappy quality and edited cable TV reruns. Let's remember real TV and not this crap they call TV today.
Had no idea about the horrid quality of the UK releases, so im glad I never got round to investing in any. Will just hope and wait for Shout to release the rest.
Telly Savalas was perfect in the role of Lieutenant Theo Kojak of the New York City Police Department.
The second season of "Kojak" originally aired on CBS from September 15, 1974 until March 9, 1975.

Very well compressed and great quality picture and sound ... very happy with this purchase.. would recommend it. I will certainly buy the upcoming season 3 as well!!
It has no extras but the picture and sound quality is superb.
This really is the best release of a KOJAK Season qualitywise
since the original Season One Universal DVD Set was released
I thank SHOUT for this great DVD release and hope they will
continue with Seasons Three to Five soon.
I will buy for sure!
The disclaimer at the start of each DVD did, I must admit, give me cause for concern - "Please note that whilst every care has been taken to ensure the quality of the programme, due to the age of the original materials the technical quality of the programme may be slightly impaired in places" Translation, "Due to us being lazy and wanting to maximize profits, we simply couldn't be bothered to spend any money on remastering any of the episodes of this classic series" - sorry, call me cynical but "the age of the original materials" - erm... this season is only 36 years old..! I'd expect to see such a disclaimer on material from the 1930s but not on a show from 1974! Sorry, as a fan of classic television, i.e. Perry Mason; Hawaii Five-0; Mannix and the like, I expect to see better!
Given the history of Kojak on DVD (a 5 year hiatus between the release of series 1 on disc and this season); I'd have expected them to be spending that time on cleaning up the episode prints for this release.
So, a word on the `quality', the episodes are simply washed out - they have the appearance of something you would have taped on VHS back in the days when the show was being re-run. Print wise, the episodes are watchable, but they lack any vibrancy and, in the main, appear washed out. Colours are dull and the images lack any crispness.Read more ›

Great television right from the 1st episode. The scenes of 1970's NYC and unmistakeable "sets"
bring you right back to 1975. Read more
Queen of the gypsy was one of the best revenge plot. I love when the bad guys get it!Published 2 months ago by Kindle Customer Bernie C.
Who loves ya baby? Telly does. Great trip back to the seventies
with my favorite NYC police lieutenant! Wish it had captions.
Telly Savalas does an excellent job playing Theo Kojak, a police detective in New York. In this season the program goes a little bit outside the box of the typical TV cop show,... Read morePublished 4 months ago by James D. Crabtree
