Editorial Reviews

Telly Savalas returns as the lollipop-packing dapper detective Theo Kojak in another unforgettable season of the renowned mystery series. Season Two features Lieutenant Kojak laying down the law in homicide cases involving organized crime, terrorists, drug traffickers, a serial bomber and a killer multimillion-dollar thief in an investigation that sends Kojak undercover as a Greek millionaire. Whether he’s utilizing his irresistible charm or bending the rules to catch a murderer, you can always bet that Kojak will close the case.

Created by Emmy and Academy Award winning writer Abby Mann, Kojak ran for five seasons on CBS from 1973 1978 and remains a legendary series among homicide dramas. All 25 Original Season Two Episodes

Shout! Factory does it again! They have listened to consumers and have invested in Kojak. "Who Loves 'Ya Baby?"!

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.

A friend of mine who get's advanced pressings of DVD releases just sent this to me as a gift knowing the huge fan I am of the show. Have watched the first 3 discs so far and I will say, you will not be let down!

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.

This week I received my SHOUT FACTORY release of KOJAK Season 2.
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
years ago.
I thank SHOUT for this great DVD release and hope they will
continue with Seasons Three to Five soon.
I will buy for sure!

I like many other fans bought the UK release as I live in England, but on hereing about This Shout factory Dvd and all that I read I just had to buy it and I must say this version is amazing. What I undersatnd about old T.V. shows is they are filmed in 35mm then its transfered to 2.1/4inch Video for television Broadcasting but they make hundreds of copys to ship around the networks/world and all these large format videos can rot after a time if not looked after, much like 35mm film, so unless its restored it will not work well as we've seen from Mediumrare UK season 2 & 3. but 4 & 5 are very good. Theres no info on any remastering on this Shout DVD but somthing has been done as its so very good, colour dos not bleed picture is much clearer shaper and the sound is much improved. After its been shown many times the Video tapes are returned to the studio where the just get stored this info came from worker in the industry some years back so I recon there must be some truth in this, I`m not in the bizz but I`m sure theres people out there who know, I like everyone whos a fan have waited so long for KOJAK to comeout so I can't recommended this enough its a well worth the purchase enjoy.
Back in the 70s a T.V. Special was made on the making of Kojak and it had interviews with all the actors and loacation filmimg.

Seasons 2 and 3 are available in Europe (Amazons UK site has it a little cheaper than the one here). These DVDs do not appear to have been remastered so if Film quality is critical, you will be disappointed. The DVDs are very watchable, just don't compare them to other releases of old TV shows that have been remastered. These old Kojak episodes are better than anything new being offered on TV today, in my opinion anyway. You will need an "all region" DVD player to watch this on an American DVD player.

UPDATE: I notice Amazon has attributed this (and the reviews of many others) to the forthcoming 'Shout Factory' release of Kojak Season 2 - please note, my comments aren't in relation to their set. My comments are in relation to the European release via 'Mediumrare Entertainment' - I live in hope that 'Shout Factory' will remaster their set to the standard this show deserves!

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.
