Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"The times they are a changin’," the Dylan-quoting Julie (Peggy Lipton) smiles as she shows her cop credentials to a uniformed policeman. As The Mod Squad’s first season unfolds, the idea that this groovy hippie chick, too-cool soul brother Linc (Clarence Williams III) and tightly-wound rebel with a cause Pete (Michael Cole) could be the fuzz is still pretty far out ("The one thing these guys are not is cops," laughs one member of a gang that Pete and Linc infiltrate in one episode). The Mod Squad may be a tad dated, but compared to ultra unhip shows like Dragnet, it was truly radical in its day. And it could deal with then contemporary issues that more traditional cop shows could, or did, not. In "Peace Now-Arly Blau!", Pete and Linc go undercover behind bars to protect the life of a Vietnam War protestor and pacifist, whose father just happens to be a general. But for the most part, these episodes aren’t all that subversive. In "Hello Mother, My Name is Julie," Julie’s wayward mom has cleaned up her act and announces that she is engaged. Her fiancée, of course, is the "Mr. Big" whom Pete and Linc are trying to nail. In "Flight Five Doesn’t Answer," Pete, Linc, and their mentor, Capt. Greer (Tige Andrews) transport a mob boss by plane that assassins force to crash land in the desert. In the season finale, "A Seat by the Window," the trio splits up to board "three busses full of suspects" to catch a bus stop killer. Following the episode, "The Price of Terror" (included on Volume 1), the generation gap between Greer and his Squad is further bridged in "The Uptight Town," in which a search for the missing Greer leads the trio to a small town hiding a deadly secret (not to mention Greer!) The guest star wattage burns pretty hot, especially in the episode, "Keep the Faith, Baby," featuring Sammy Davis, Jr. as an activist priest and Robert Duvall as a murderer not sure whether he’ll break the seal of confession. The lone extra feature is devoted to Lipton’s iconic and trendsetting look as the lithe and lovely Julie. Seen decades later, many old TV shows are a bust, but The Mod Squad was made with care and conviction. To review it is to echo Julie in the episode, "Child of Sorrow, Child of Light," after she helps to break up a crooked adoption scam: "Sometimes I love this job." --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Meet Pete, Linc and Julie: The Mod Squad. This trio consisted of rich, long-haired Pete Cochran, Lincoln "Linc" Hayes from the tough streets of inner city Los Angeles, and beautiful flower child Julie Barnes, a runaway from San Francisco. They’re recruited by police captain Adam Greer (Tiger Andrews) for a covert unit that will help bridge the generation gap. Each week these three cops with love beads wrestled with criminals – and their own consciences. They may have been the "fuzz," but they were determined to never compromise their values. They were The Mod Squad!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, Man!!! December 22, 2007
Verified Purchase
Thankfully, CBS/Paramount is not delaying the DVD release of the second-half of the first season of this iconic Classic TV Police action, drama. While it's more expensive for viewers to have to purchase half-season sets, it's better than not having these wonderful Classic TV shows on DVD at all.

Mod Squad is the original counter-culture phenomenon that remains a fan favorite, replete with one of the best and most memorable TV musical themes ever composed. It remains very, very watchable despite its age - ironically, now older than what was considered trustworthy in adults during that era.

Premiering Sept. 24, 1968, during the height of the Viet Nam War, Mod Squad lasted for five action packed seasons with episodes that dealt as much with social issues as it did crime in the streets.

Set in Los Angeles, the premiss was simple enough: Three young people in trouble with the law are given the opportunity of avoiding jail sentences by infiltrating the counter-culture as undercover cops and exposing criminal who prey on youth. The idea is for them to bridge the generation gap between the youth and the "fuzz."

The three "delinquents" were Pete Cochran, portrayed by Michael Cole, who was arrested for car theft; Julie Barnes, portrayed by Peggy Lipton, who ran away from her prostitute mother in San Francisco; and Lincoln Hayes, portrayed by Clarence Williams III, who was arrested during the Watts riots. Tough talking Capt. Adam Greer, portrayed by Tige Andrews, was in charge of the special squad and eventually became a father-figure to them. (Lipton, who later played Norma the waitress in another cult classic - Twin Peaks - was nominated for an Emmy for her role as Julie, and won a Golden Globe in 1970 for her portrayal of the character.

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel like I have waited a lifetime! February 6, 2008
I can't explain how thrilled I am to have the Mod Squad back on TV, and right in my home. I was a pre-teen when this show premired and it became an instant favorite. My thrill back then was looking each week at Michael Cole. His face not only adorned my black and white TV set, but the back of my bedroom door. All those great pictures from 16 and Tiger Beat proudly were displayed on that door for many years (much to my mother's distain may I add) My thrill now is seeing the episodes in color! I know that sounds silly, but we didn't have a color TV until 1976 so I can't wait to see my long lost love...Michael Cole in living color!
I'm sure I will be transported back to being 12 years old!
Thanks Paramount for being so smart as to bring back these great nostalgic shows!

5.0 out of 5 stars Landmark Crime Drama Began The Spelling Empire December 26, 2007
The Mod Squad is a seminal television show for several reasons. One is that it was so clearly a product of its times - from the clothes, hairdos, to its rebellious, revolutionary, hippie sensibilities.

The second reason is that The Mod Squad was the beginning of the legendary producing legacy of Aaron Spelling, and his many years of providing viewer-friendly programs to both ABC and Fox. Although he had worked as an actor and writer, and had already produced Johnny Ringo and Burke's Law, The Mod Squad began an incredible and unprecedented almost forty year run of producing television shows that captured fans with either high-octane action sequences, or opulent comedies or soap-operatic dramas. The partial list includes The Rookies, SWAT, Charlie's Angels, Starsky and Hutch, Vegas, Hotel, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Dynasty, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, and Charmed.

But still at the heart of this show was the rapport and relationship between the three street kids who were rounded up and rehabilitated into undercover cops - rich kid Pete Cochran (Michael Cole), runaway Julie Barnes (Peggy Lipton), and taciturn revolutionary Lincoln Hayes (Clarence Williams III. Pete, Julie, and Linc had immediate street cred with the mostly young felons they ran across, and even though it could be testy or frosty, their relationship with their mentor and rehabilitator, Captain Adam Greer (played by Tige Andrews)was solid, and they grew to have much mutual love and respect and affection.

The shows could stretch credulity almost to the breaking point, but the shows dealt with relevant issues, were very entertaining, and well written and well acted.

It is a great treat to watch these episodes again, and we can look forward to the release of the other episodes with great anticipation.

Step back into the 60's or explore them for the first time. You won't be disappointed by this wonderful show. Peggy Lipton, Michael Cole, Clarence Williams, III and Tige Andrews make The Mod Squad well worth watching again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars purchase of dvds/the mod squad and love american style February 26, 2009
:The Mod B000VS6R30 Squad - Season[[ASIN 1, Volume 1]]I have always liked this show growing up in the 70's I watched it faithfully, however you never see re-runs on tv anywhere. I guess i am surprised they play the same programs on cable over and over and never change around adding re-runs of other series commonly watched. This is dissapointing. I will probably look for other hard to find programs here sometime in future. kimberly
