Telly Savalas is absolutely on the mark in his potrayal of Lt. Theo Kojak, the rest of the supporting cast does such a superb job that you almost forget that this is a TV series, and not the real thing. One of the best police crime dramas ever made. Video quality is excellent. Highly Recommended

What a great show. This was a serious drama that minimized the on-screen violence and gore according to the standards of the time. However, it still provides plenty of excitement. The wide jacket lapels, the flared pants, the ties that could double as lobster bibs, and the hat with the lieutenant's only b/w checked police hat-band, the polyester, the lollipops, and all the other cool 70s atmosphere. This show dealt with serious topics, and even though it was produced in the 70s, I still wouldn't let kids below the 7th grade watch it. It has a classy leading man, with an excellent supporting cast. There's a reason this show is considered a classic. Kojak is well worth watching!

So this is the 5th and final season of the original (and best) Kojak.
Most series after a few seasons get tired and the stories become stale.Not in this case.The last season is every bit as good as the first.
All the characters return for the finale.The stories are exciting and looking at this series again after some 30 years plus I didnt realise how gritty it was.
The "person" not returning would be composer Billy Goldenberg. His iconic theme used in the first 4 seasons is replaced by John Cacavas (who was a friend of Telly Savalas). Cacavas scored the first 4. Its a pity as it would have been nice for Goldenberg to do this one aswell.Cacavas theme is a good one though.
Shout Factory have done us proud again with the mastering which is superb.Picture is crisp and the sound good.
CBS cancelled the show after this season due to falling ratings.A pity,but then Kojak for the audience watching went out on a high.
