5.0 out of 5 stars "It's About Time" April 5, 2012
It seems like we have waited forever for Paramount to release season 3 of "The Streets of San Francisco" on DVD, but now it arrives in stores on July 3rd, 2012. To me this was probably the best season of the series as it featured some very controversial subject matter and an array of guest-stars that made this year an unforgettable one. Everyone from Mariette Hartley to John Davidson (in a blood-curdling performance as a female impersonator who goes on a killing spree) make appearances.

The following is a complete list of the first 12 episodes available on Volume 1 along with their airdates:

1. "One Last Shot", Sept. 12, 1974
2. "The Most Deadly Species", Sept. 19, 1974
3. "Target: Red", Sept. 26, 1974
4. "Masked of Death", Oct. 3, 1974
5. "I Ain't Marchin' Anymore", Oct. 10, 1974
6. "One Chance to Live", Oct. 17, 1974
7. "Jacob's Boy", Oct. 24, 1974
8. "Flags of Terror", Oct. 31, 1974
9. "Cry Help!", Nov. 7, 1974
10. "For Good or Evil", Nov. 14, 1974
11. "Bird of Prey", Nov. 21, 1974
12. "Liscence to Kill", Dec. 5, 1974

Yes, you've got that right : This is really a (sort of) love letter from Germany.

Why and what for, you might ask.
Well - let me tell you why.


You see, I'm a really huge admirer of Michael Douglas - and I simply LOVE this TV classic !

But not only because of Michael who was just at the beginning of his career and still far away from being the actor that he is today - but also because of Karl Malden whose character Lieutenant Mike Stone could easily and should be described as THE character of his acting career - he was simply THE perfect cast !!!!
Karl and Michael - their relationship onscreen and the development of their chemistry was and still is simply and absolutely a joy to watch ....
Quite a few classic screen teams had that sort of chemistry - but I think no other made it look so natural and real ....

And there are just a few more reasons why I simply love "THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO" ....


Because of the location - San Francisco is simply one of the greatest and most interesting places in the world.
So many influences and details - European, Asian .... you name it - you can see it in the look and texture of this city ....
That combined with the location on a natural rollercoaster ride with all those hills and the sometimes truely amazing craftmanship to build a city upon that ....
Just watch the show and take a closer look at the scenery - and you cannot help falling in a kind of love with this place ....


Also because of the stories, some of them are way more than just simple entertainment ....

5.0 out of 5 stars Stone and Keller just keep getting better August 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We have all waited years for CBS issue Season 3 of The Streets of San Francisco, and it was well worth the wait. I just finished watching Disc 1 of this set and it is top notch! The stories, the guest actors, the audio and video are all terrific. I especially liked the last episode on Disc 1 "Mask Of Death" with John Davidson as a female impersonator serial killer. He was creepy and played the part quite well. The other episodes were great as well. I just never get tired of this show, and CBS has once again done a great job with the audio and video on these discs. I don't know if they just store their reels in caves somewhere with optimum conditions for film, or have the best restorers available. I can never find any flaw with a CBS Video release when it comes to any audio or video aspect. They do an excellent job, just as Stone and Keller do as detectives. I also bought the second Volume to this season, and will watch it once I am done with Vol. 1. Both volumes of Season 4 Streets of San Francisco: The Complete Fourth Season are on pre-order, I know the quality will be just as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Q stands for Quality and Quinn Martin Productions August 16, 2012
By Mike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You know you have a quality show if Quinn Martin's name is attached to it.He had produced "The Untouchables,"The Fugitive,"The Invaders" to name a few. A brilliant cop show which was hard and gritty at the time with the magnificent Karl Malden and Michael Douglas starring in it. The show ran for five seasons. All to released by CBS/Paramount.This, of course, is season three.Douglas would leave at the beginning of season five to be replaced by Richard Hatch, before his days on Battlestar Galactica,
The San Francisco skyline is used to good effect in this series.Loads of car chases and shoot-outs on these streets.Plenty of guest stars, too,like Richard Egan, Richard Basehart, Joseph Cotton and Henry Darrow adorn this series.
A quality series not to be missed.

This series sure brings back some memories. It is fun to look at the fashions of the day and also how they decorated their homes. As always, the chemistry between Karl Malden and Michael Douglas is outstanding. Don't hesitate to buy. You won't be sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest of the 1970s TV shows August 8, 2012
By S.M.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to watch The Streets of San Francisco with my grandfather in the late 1970s when I was quite young! I really enjoyed watching this great show, and remember the beautiful scenery of the city quite well. And Karl Malden's hat and trench coat! Also,through this fine show began my interest and desire to one day visit the great city of San Francisco. The acting is superb, especially the genuine and well rounded relationship between Lt Stone (Karl Malden, great actor) and Inspector Keller (Michael Douglas, so good looking, he was destined to great things). The story lines were gripping and often quite ahead of their time - for example, the subtle gun debate in the episode (THE TWENTY-FIVE CALIBER PLAGUE) in which a loose gun causes unecessary death and chaos over 24 hours. And the general look and style of the production just makes you so happy to be curled up and enthralled watching this great show. I cannot wait for the next season! In addition to this terrific show, my other all time favourites from this period are: Mannix, Hawaii Five O, Columbo, Kojak, Rockford Files, Barnaby Jones, Starsky & Hutch etc. And not forgetting The Fugitive, The FBI, Ironside and Perry Mason from the 1960s. Quinn Martin was a fabulous producer and I enjoy his style and format (he produced SOSF, The Fugitive, The FBI to name a few). Most of the cop shows of today are just awful, in my opinion (apart from Law & Order, NCIS which are ok)- superficial and lacking in substance and style. I do not even bother watching the commercial channels anymore, I much prefer to keep playing my favourite shows above over and over. And take something away each time! Thank you Amazon for making these available, although it has taken quite a while for most!
