Editorial Reviews

Broadcast by ABC in the mid 80s, this series quickly became a massive hit. Jesse Mach, an ex-motorcycle cop injured in the line of duty-now a police trouble shooter, has been recruited for a top-secret government mission to ride Street Hawk, an all-terrain attack motorcycle designed to fight urban crime, capable of incredible speeds of up to 300 mph and immense firepower. Only one man, Norman Tuttle, knows Jesse Mach s true identity. The Man, The Machine, Street Hawk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Show From The '80's July 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Street Hawk was a show that ran briefly back in 1985 on ABC. It starred Rex Smith as Jesse Mach, a motorcycle cop who was injured and relegated to a desk job. Joe Regalbuto starred as Norman Tuttle, a government engineer who builds a super-powered motorcycle named "Street Hawk". Each week, Jesse and Norman would take on the evil-doers of the world and make the streets safe for law-abiding citizens.

The show's premise comes across to me as a bit of The Lone Ranger being crossed with another popular '80's TV show, Knight Rider. No one knows who the hero is under the mask (or in Street Hawk's case, the helmet) but he rides a computer-enhanced motorcycle replete with futuristic functionality and weaponry.

On to my review of the product itself. Equipment used to view the series was a Sony HDTV, upconverting Toshiba DVD recorder, and 6.1 Sony Home Theater surround sound.

I enjoyed re-watching these shows as I hadn't seen them since they last went off the air in 1985 on ABC. The suspension of dis-belief was still needed, of course, as the show was geared toward a younger audience but still it was fun seeing them again for the first time in 25 years.

However, I am docking this DVD release two stars for two big reasons:

1) The video presentation was faded and looked awfully washed out. Yes, I know the show is 25 years old. By contrast, the commercial DVD releases of TJ Hooker as well as Starsky and Hutch look better on my HDTV than this release did and those shows are older than this one.

2) The sound was awfully weak in some of the episodes while decent in others. I really found myself wishing that Shout! would have taken the time to re-mix the sound into 5.1, as Universal did with their release of Miami Vice.

5.0 out of 5 stars About Time... July 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For the past couple of years I have been checking Amazon (at least once a month) to see when Street Hawk was going to be released on DVD. Boy was I ever surprised to find it finally listed. Of course I bought it right away. I was 11 when the show came out and didn't remember much about it, but I remembered I liked it. My kids think (especially my 16 year old son) that I'm a big nerd. Being female doesn't help any if I was a guy I think he would understand better. OK so my phone plays Le Parc (LA Street Hawk) by Tangerine Dream. What I remember from my youth was Knight Rider, Airwolf, and Street Hawk. I loved all three of these shows and I own the ONLY three seasons of Airwolf. Season 4 to me does not count because none of the original cast is in it. I would be like if they re-casted Harry Potter right in the middle. See told you big nerd here. I did own seasons 1 and 2 of Knight Rider, but me being the pain in the butt I am sold them because the boxes weren't in the best shape. When I was watching the extras I was surprised to hear that Rex Smith did a lot of the motorcycle driving himself. Of course the stunts were left to the professionals. I don't know if its still on there but on [...] the Street Hawk page there is an article from July 1, 2010 that says that Rex is trying to revive Street Hawk. That would be awesome! Make sure it's not on NBC though because they have proven that they can't remake a series. I'm happy to finally have Street Hawk in my TV on DVD collection!

Excuse me, pardon me, nerd coming through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Street Hawk On DVD... At Last! October 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Street Hawk was an excellent 80's scifi/action/adventure show. While the show may have been overshadowed by Knight Rider and Airwolf, Street Hawk held its own ground and provided great entertainment. Sure, some of the dialogue was sappy/corny at times...but in my opinion, this was a reflection of the (Don't Worry Be Happy) 80's and all good fun. And hey...since the show only lasted for 13 episodes, we never had to sit through an evil alter ego episode (eg. Michael Knight/Garth Knight...that was very imaginative writing...hello).

This DVD release is great. The extras are nice (includes cast interviews, making of, unaired pilot, etc.). The video quality is good...and did I mention the soundtrack? The theme music and some of the incidental music in the show was provided by Tangerine Dream (an awesome German electronic music/krautrock group). This music was a perfect match for this high tech/high energy show.

Look...if you like motocross mixed with machine guns, rockets, lasers and computer assisted super speed...then Street Hawk is for you. You will believe a motorcycle can fly!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Street Hawk Rocks! March 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's about time they finally released this short-lived 13-episode high-tech drama out on DVD about a former motorcycle cop & former amateur dirt-bike racer named Jesse Mach(Rex Smith)who was secretly chosen to test a top-secret project-all terrain attack supercycle capable of speeds up to 300 MPH that even outclassed the Knight 2000 on KNIGHT RIDER after Jesse got injured in the line-of-duty & lost his police partner(Marty)in the process just like Michael Knight(David Hasselhoff)lost his police partner Muncie(Herbert Jefferson, Jr.)in-the-line-of-duty on his last police investigation.

Backing the supercycle was a computerized command system that allowed its operator to provide the supercycle's rider with real-time information from various sources & to autopilot the Street Hawk motorcycle during its high-speed runs after clearing traffic along the intended route and had weaponry like AIRWOLF had that KNIGHT RIDER didn't even have either which even made KITT look pale by comparison, especially since KNIGHT RIDER started getting overshadowed by STREET HAWK during its short-run on ABC since KNIGHT RIDER lost a lot of viewers thru STREET HAWK since STREET HAWK stole KNIGHT RIDER's thunder & Jesse stole "The Man The Machine" motto away from Michael Knight(David Hasselhoff)among many other things, despite the rumor that STREET HAWK was a rip-off of KNIGHT RIDER.

Norman Tuttle(Joe Regalbuto)who was an engineer employed by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration of the Department of Justice, was the designer of the Street Hawk supercycle & reluctantly chose Jesse to test it out which contributed to Jesse living a double-life as a public relations officer from the fictional Metropolitan Police Dept. in L.A.

Why do people review pre-orders?
Another new member to the club I see (the club who don't understand pre-order reviews that is). The purpose of reviews is also to describe the content of the product if you know about it. With a series that was on tv of yesteryear, people still remember it. They may have them on video tape,... Read more
