Streets of San Francisco was superior to most Quinn Martin detective shows, in part because of the great chemistry between its lead characters but also because a detective and sidekick always works better dramatically: the team of Holmes and Watson always worked better than solo detectives Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple, for example. But far more mysterious than any of the Quinn Martin plot lines is why these outstanding TV shows have taken so long to be released on video. In 1998 a handful of episodes were released only on VHS, even when that format had clearly been displaced by DVD. And presumably the manufacturing cost of DVD is a fraction of VHS duplication, so this further adds to the mystery. Even so, those VHS tapes were a vast improvement over the fuzzy, grainy, cut-for-more-commercial-time versions on TV rerun channels. But this DVD set is better still. The colors are bright and the titles are razor sharp. It probably didn't look this good on first-run network TV. The cover art says "some episodes may be edited from their original network versions," but I can see scenes that have been missing from reruns for many decades. There are no DVD extras but there are English/Spanish Subtitles and a Spanish audio track. With only 4 discs, (on the Volume 1-2 set) and a list price of $80, the collection is grossly overpriced when more contemporary shows cost a half or a third that price, and almost always include some value-added content. But if you're a SSF fan, it may well be worth the premium price.

As a City of San Francisco aficionado, I was delighted to see the release of "Streets of San Francisco" and the DVD did not disappoint me.
Karl Malden and Michael Douglas are terrific actors, the guest stars in the episodes are all believable and solid, there are some great visual shots of The City (not as many as in season two), and the writing and plotting are as good (if not better) than any series produced now, about 35 years later.
Fans of the police TV series genre will (and should) snap this up, sit back and enjoy.

This couple of cops are mythic, Detective Lieutenant Mike Stone and his partner Inspector Steve Keller are not walking but rolling the streets of San Francisco chasing not petticoats or petty criminals but real hard core criminals who are ready to kill anyone, including their husbands or friends, though essentially weaker people, for a handful of dollars, for sums that today sound small but in those days sounded great like a few hundred thousand dollars or half a million dollars. It seems with these criminals the risk they take is more important than the profit they make. Yet they make that profit, or at least try to, they run their risks and they get caught by the "villainous" cops who are only there to get their heads, or at least their mugs, on their walls over their fireplaces, if they have a fireplace, because what's more these cops are poor and badly paid. Why on earth do they track boys and girls who make more money in one month than they do in a couple of decades? Because these cops are perverts and that is obvious from the very start. You have to be a pervert to arrest a criminal and find pleasure, pride and even fame in doing that. But these cops are bringing to the profession another dimension, a human and even humane dimension. They are moved into action by the suffering of the people, by the social dimension of their cases, by the emotional and even sentimental sides of their situations. There is always a lot of love lost somewhere that is found again, or a lot of love that could have been lost and is retained. There is also a lesson about Pearl Harbor and about all kinds of jingoism or sectarianism or segregation or racism, or whatever that makes life and humanity dirty looking and mean sounding.Read more ›
