Editorial Reviews

Telly Savalas stars as Lieutenant Theo Kojak in the third season of the edgy ’70s police drama Kojak.

Season Three finds Kojak embroiled in a series of high-profile cases involving the savage murder of a priest, a car theft ring, an 18-year-old homicide cold case, a cop killer and a Mob hit ordered on Kojak himself. Known for pushing the limits with a fiery intensity while keeping a cool head, Kojak never let the law get in the way of justice.

Created by Emmy and Academy Award winning writer Abby Mann, Kojak ran for five seasons on CBS from 1973 to 1978 and spawned a series of TV movies throughout the ’80s and ’90s. All 24 Original Episodes

Season Three opens strong right out of the gate with "Questions & Answers" (2 parts) and concludes with "A Grave Too Soon." 24 hard hitting episodes which include: A savage murder of a priest, a car theft ring, an 18 year old homicide cold case, a cop killer and a mob hit on Kojak.

Here are my 5 reasons why Kojak will forever remain ONE of the best television detectives series of the 70s:

#1 Telly Savalas as Theo Kojak

He IS Kojak. The intelligence, charm and wit of Telly Savalas are irrepressible and inimitable. Savalas was a trendsetter. He takes his place in the pantheon of TV and Cinematic movie Detectives such as Humphrey Bogart. Clint Eastwood. Peter Falk.
Simply Unforgettable.

#2 The Scripts/Stories

These are tight-as-a-drum, flawlessly well-written episodes indicative of cinema. Suspenseful, gritty crime writing with purpose and heart. Fantastic one-liners that are quote-worthy to this very day. Crime writer Joe Gores received an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Episode in a TV Series Teleplay for the third-season episode "No Immunity for Murder."

#3 The Actors/Performances

C'mon..."fuggedaboutit," as the mobsters say... the whole cast: Kevin Dobson, Dan Frazer, George Savalas and the guest stars: Eli Wallach. F. Murray Abraham. Sylvester Stallone... the list goes on.
Great casting and credible performances.

#4 The Locations

New York in the 70s beautifully rendered on film in this series. Lots of WTC shots and inner cityscapes that convey the realism of detective work and Manhattan South. It feels very real like when Sidney LumetMaking Movies shot in New York.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV series March 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched the whole third season. Print quality: excellent. The third season is better than the second. That is: it's great! Watch for Sly Stallone in an ambiguous/bad guy role. Jerry Orbach is great, too. It's like Gene Hackman's "Conversation" meeting Harvey Keitel's "Copland." And Telly rules!
PS The music is very good too. It would deserve a CD. Maybe a bonus, for season 5. I would pay extra money for it. Like what they did for M Squad.

One of the best police series of all times. It presents the crude reality of the "big apple" from 30 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shout Factory Doesn't Disappoint! May 8, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a rave review for the quality of production on this set of videos. They are sharp and clear, lighting is just right, which is important since the Kojak was reminisant of film noire. I intend to purchase Kojak , Season 4, and hope Shout Factory does the fifth season. Could we convince them to make some other old tv classics available with their signature quality? How about Maverick with James Garner and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp with Hugh O'Brian.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series; Poor video quality April 15, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have seasons 1 and 2 of this classic series. The video quality of the first two is excellent, but not so this version. It is grainy and has the analog artifacts of a film that has been run too many times. To be clear, this is a region 2 version. I buy these from time to time because I travel to Europe and its nice to have something that will play there. i haven't seen the US version, so this comment should be understood to apply only to the region 2 release.
