While I initially only bought this for those two episodes, the show's sharp writing and impressive guest-star roster drew me in. The installments featuring Jessica Walter and Desi Arnaz Jr. are equally good.
Never a Michael Douglas fan (too smug) or Karl Malden either for that matter, I find Richard Hatch much more engaging even if the scripts give him little to do except deliver exposition. I didn't care much for the Don Johnson episode only because it spends too much time dealing with Mike Stone's (Karl Malden) personal interests as his daughter (Darleen Carr) figures largely into the plot. I've now seen enough episodes to know I don't care for the ones that deal with Stone's home life. I remember seeing Darleen in "Battle of the Network Stars" and she came across as very likeable there, but her character here seems too sweet, even if she is meant to contrast the violence of her father's cases. The episode where she dates motorcycle cop Don Johnson is relatively dull IMO.
The awesome "Who Killed Helen French" episode is one of those episodes that could only have been made in the '70s and has so many intriguing twists and turns you'd swear it was a two-hour episode.Read more ›
People who are unfamiliar with that series or genre may relate to it as the inspiration for the tragically short-lived Zucker Brothers', best known for the classic film comedy "Airplane," hilarious series "Police Squad" and the subsequent "Naked Gun" films.
The recent release of the two-volume DVD set of "Streets'" fifth and final season provides a chance to complete your collection of this great Quinn Martin production. Virtually everyone who watched television in the '60s or '70s at least knew of "The F.B.I.," "Barnaby Jones," and the other hour-long dramas that Martin produced.
"Police Squad" did an excellent job parodying Martin's trademark lurid episode titles and technique of breaking episodes into four or five acts and an epilogue. Episode titles from "Street's" fifth season include "The Thrill Killers," "The Cannibals," and "Chill of Anger."
Before discussing "Streets" further, it is worth mentioning that the complete series set of the '60s Quinn Martin classic "The Fugitive" was also recently released.
"The Fugitive" was a quasi-anthology show that was a slight departure for Martin in that it had the titular fugitive Dr. Richard Kimball helping those in distress while traveling around the country evading arrest and seeking proof of his innocence of the charge that he killed his wife. The final episode of "The Fugitive" truly is one of the best shows ever.Read more ›
