Editorial Reviews

Broadcast by ABC in the mid 80s, this series quickly became a massive hit. Jesse Mach, an ex-motorcycle cop injured in the line of duty-now a police trouble shooter, has been recruited for a top-secret government mission to ride Street Hawk, an all-terrain attack motorcycle designed to fight urban crime, capable of incredible speeds of up to 300 mph and immense firepower. Only one man, Norman Tuttle, knows Jesse Mach s true identity. The Man, The Machine, Street Hawk.

Street Hawk was a show that ran briefly back in 1985 on ABC. It starred Rex Smith as Jesse Mach, a motorcycle cop who was injured and relegated to a desk job. Joe Regalbuto starred as Norman Tuttle, a government engineer who builds a super-powered motorcycle named "Street Hawk". Each week, Jesse and Norman would take on the evil-doers of the world and make the streets safe for law-abiding citizens.

The show's premise comes across to me as a bit of The Lone Ranger being crossed with another popular '80's TV show, Knight Rider. No one knows who the hero is under the mask (or in Street Hawk's case, the helmet) but he rides a computer-enhanced motorcycle replete with futuristic functionality and weaponry.

On to my review of the product itself. Equipment used to view the series was a Sony HDTV, upconverting Toshiba DVD recorder, and 6.1 Sony Home Theater surround sound.

I enjoyed re-watching these shows as I hadn't seen them since they last went off the air in 1985 on ABC. The suspension of dis-belief was still needed, of course, as the show was geared toward a younger audience but still it was fun seeing them again for the first time in 25 years.

However, I am docking this DVD release two stars for two big reasons:

1) The video presentation was faded and looked awfully washed out. Yes, I know the show is 25 years old. By contrast, the commercial DVD releases of TJ Hooker as well as Starsky and Hutch look better on my HDTV than this release did and those shows are older than this one.

2) The sound was awfully weak in some of the episodes while decent in others. I really found myself wishing that Shout! would have taken the time to re-mix the sound into 5.1, as Universal did with their release of Miami Vice.

Street Hawk was an excellent 80's scifi/action/adventure show. While the show may have been overshadowed by Knight Rider and Airwolf, Street Hawk held its own ground and provided great entertainment. Sure, some of the dialogue was sappy/corny at times...but in my opinion, this was a reflection of the (Don't Worry Be Happy) 80's and all good fun. And hey...since the show only lasted for 13 episodes, we never had to sit through an evil alter ego episode (eg. Michael Knight/Garth Knight...that was very imaginative writing...hello).

This DVD release is great. The extras are nice (includes cast interviews, making of, unaired pilot, etc.). The video quality is good...and did I mention the soundtrack? The theme music and some of the incidental music in the show was provided by Tangerine Dream (an awesome German electronic music/krautrock group). This music was a perfect match for this high tech/high energy show.

Look...if you like motocross mixed with machine guns, rockets, lasers and computer assisted super speed...then Street Hawk is for you. You will believe a motorcycle can fly!!!

For the past couple of years I have been checking Amazon (at least once a month) to see when Street Hawk was going to be released on DVD. Boy was I ever surprised to find it finally listed. Of course I bought it right away. I was 11 when the show came out and didn't remember much about it, but I remembered I liked it. My kids think (especially my 16 year old son) that I'm a big nerd. Being female doesn't help any if I was a guy I think he would understand better. OK so my phone plays Le Parc (LA Street Hawk) by Tangerine Dream. What I remember from my youth was Knight Rider, Airwolf, and Street Hawk. I loved all three of these shows and I own the ONLY three seasons of Airwolf. Season 4 to me does not count because none of the original cast is in it. I would be like if they re-casted Harry Potter right in the middle. See told you big nerd here. I did own seasons 1 and 2 of Knight Rider, but me being the pain in the butt I am sold them because the boxes weren't in the best shape. When I was watching the extras I was surprised to hear that Rex Smith did a lot of the motorcycle driving himself. Of course the stunts were left to the professionals. I don't know if its still on there but on [...] the Street Hawk page there is an article from July 1, 2010 that says that Rex is trying to revive Street Hawk. That would be awesome! Make sure it's not on NBC though because they have proven that they can't remake a series. I'm happy to finally have Street Hawk in my TV on DVD collection!

Excuse me, pardon me, nerd coming through.

I am giving this series a 3-star rating because when I put in the DVD and watched the pilot episode, then the next 2 episodes, it was obvious this not what I expected. It was like they made the DVD from the series that ran 1984 to 1985 without cleaning it up. It looks and sounds like the original series I watched some 30 yrs ago on a TV then. I am frankly surprised they didn't clean up the DVD series of the show and cleaned up the subpar picture quality and sound, much like they do with most TV box sets. And only 13 episodes? I had thought it had more episodes than that back in the mid 80's when I watched it with my dad when it was on primetime TV. I have a feeling they cancelled the show in 1985 mainly because it had so much competition with other action series like Airwolf, Knight Rider, Miami Vice, CHiPs (even thought they cancelled the show in 1983) and TJ Hooker. All were superior in contending with this show, and I own all the box sets of those shows. Surprised they have only released TJ Hooker Season 1 and 2, and that was in 2005. So far they haven't released more episodes and CHiPs is another letdown, 2 seasons so far and that's it. Don't get me wrong I always loved Street Hawk, just disappointed I paid $27 for what looks like it was a direct port of the show instead of remastering it. Really, the other shows were cleaned up and sound was excellent in terms of picture and sound quality.
