It took only one season for old-school cop Capt. Greer (Tige Andrews), and his new-school undercover Mod Squad to bridge their generation gap. In the season opener, "The Girl in Chair Nine," a psychic tells Julie (Peggy Lipton) that she has two men in her life; that would be Pete (Michael Cole) and Linc (Clarence Williams III). But there is a third, she corrects him: Capt. Greer. And in the episode, "An Eye for an Eye," the trio get involved when Greer’s new girlfriend is kidnapped, culminating in an emotional scene in which Linc must stop him from crossing the line in confronting a suspect. Later, Greer thankfully proclaims of his young charges, "This is my family." Too touchy-feely? Not to worry; there’s plenty of groovy cop-show action in these 13 solid episodes. As Julie observes at one pont, "When something’s happening, you’ve got to go where it’s at," and the youngsters come to the aid of a Mexican urchin used by two thieves in a series of robberies, try to cool tensions when a black student is killed during a college protest, investigate the murder of a washed-up country singer, and expose a phony healer. One case hits real close to home when Pete is framed for murder. Two welcome returns in this season’s first half are Marvin Kaplan as kindly Sol Alpert (one of the passengers on the ill-fated airplane in the Season One episode, "Flight Five Doesn’t Answer"), whose cousin is revealed to be a bigoted slumlord in "In This Corner-Sol Alpert", and the trio’s trusty Woody station wagon, which has a heroic last hurrah in "The Death of Wild Bill Hannachek." Notable guest stars include Carolyn Jones (The Addams Family) as a woman traumatized by her husband’s suicide in "Lisa," Maurice Evans as a charming con man in "Never Give the Fuzz an Even Break," and a quite fetching Tyne Daly as a waitress in "Hannachek." From a Raquel Welch reference to covers of songs by Poco and Carole King, The Mod Squad is stuck in the ‘60s. But the seamless ensemble lifts it beyond time capsule status. As Capt. Greer says at one point, "Like the kids say, 'It’s something else.'" --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 (Tige 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!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Peggy Lipton Show December 31, 2008
I'm surrendering to my temptation to rate this set just below 5 stars, soley base on how many scenes Peggy Lipton is in. She failed to show up much in one episode, so I'm shaving off a star. Seriously, this IS the reason why I'm buying up this series; I haven't outgrown this schoolboy crush I have on Peggy, but I have outgrown much of what television has to offer me. The Mod Squad, however, ..and I'm very surprised by this, doesn't annoy me. It's quiet, charming and has a strong ethical core. In this set you get the abortion issue with a psychic slueth, a charming episode about a family-less mexican boy, capt greer and linc fall in love, a charming con-man, a dangerous quack, and a very adorable Peggy Lipton singing a Carol King tune, country style! What's missing from all these sets so far, is commentary from Clarence Williams. This particular set has no commentary at all; no special features. The soundtrack is original, and the writing is very good. Very well worth a purchase, even if Peggy Lipton isn't the sell.

5.0 out of 5 stars The COOL Returns August 5, 2008
Verified Purchase
Love and loss are highlighted in the latest release of The Mod Squad in a half-season DVD boxed set.

Thirteen episodes, representing the first half of the Second Season of the Classic TV iconic police drama, are expected to be included, along with additional features and interviews to be announced.

The Mod Squad is the original counter-culture phenomenon that remains a favorite, replete with one of the best and most memorable TV musical themes ever composed. It is remarkably watchable despite its age - ironically, now older than young people of that era were warned never to trust in adults.

Premiering Sept. 24, 1968, during the height of the Vietnam War, The Mod Squad lasted 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 were given the opportunity to avoid jail sentences by infiltrating the counter-culture as undercover cops and exposing criminals who prey on youth by bridging the generation gap between the youth and the "fuzz."

The three "delinquents" were Pete Cochran,(Michael Cole) who was arrested for car theft; Julie Barnes, (Peggy Lipton) who ran away from her prostitute mother in San Francisco; and Lincoln Hayes, (Clarence Williams III) who was arrested during the Watts riots. Tough talking Capt. Adam Greer, (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.
