The packaging that Shout! Factory used for Kojak: Season Five is perfect.
Season Five is stored in a plastic DVD case that holds all 6 discs.
None of the discs share the same side of any of the disc holding trays and none of the discs overlap each other either.
The picture quality is excellent and the audio quality is wonderful too.
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.
