Long ago, before the "reality TV plague" laid waste to most of the television landscape, there was a time when viewers could choose from a whole host of entertaining, fun, uplifting programs. If you're looking for escapist entertainment, likable characters, fun plots, and a few nifty stunts.... then you'll love Chips!

Although this series is over thirty years old, Chips has aged quite gracefully. This is due in part to great chemistry between the actors (all perfectly cast) and mostly lighthearted, fun scripts. If you're a dedicated fan seeking to feed your "nostalgia monster", you'll find yourself in the middle of a retro buffet! It just doesn't get any better than this!

With the recent trend being to release DVD "half seasons" at full season prices (Love Boat, Cannon, etc.), it's nice to see that fans of Chips have been treated fairly. An entire season of Chips is well worth the reasonable list price, and Amazon currently has a wonderful pre-order price to make this an irresistible purchase!

Let's hope that future seasons arrive in a timely manner! I just can't get enough!

Note:

Season one was released on SINGLE SIDED discs. This set is DOUBLE SIDED.

I have to say that the amazon product review sums it up perfectly. This is a great retro gift to yourself or a friend. You feel good watching chips, even if you never saw it the first time. The same zanny antics from season one continue, with the blend of action and comedy going at 70 mph. Estrada's little special feature, where he interviews actual Chippies, is cute and shows how much he was influenced by the show. An odd episode, which I chalk up to being made in the 70s in a more innocent time, is where John befriends a 15 year-old girl who obviously has fallen in love with him, to the point of making him dinners, getting his slippers and hanging out at his place instead of with her mom. John never says she can't or shouldn't do any of these things, only says to tell her mom where she is at. It is very weird! What adult, much less a male cop, would hang out by himself with a 15 year-old in his apartment and tell her to stay there whenever she wanted? Weird! I may expect that sort of thing from Ponch, but John? Come on.

My only real complaint is that the sound is often terrible. At many points you have to turn it up all the way to hear the dialogue, then the music comes blaring in and you fall out of your seat. Also, it would have been nice to have other cast members make some sort of commentary or appearance, but along with nearly all of WB's other dvd sets, they refuse to pay anyone for their time, travel or comments, so once again their cheapness only hurts the fans who supported the show in the first place. But they know we will buy it anyway.

Still very much worth it, if for nothing else, Ponch's extended disco, freeze frame scenes at the end of one of the episodes. Man, this stuff gets funky!

Another great season of a great series, at least so far. The stories really moved (and I mean that very literally)--that is, there were plenty of chases, and also, there was plenty of other great action from our heroes Ponch and Jon. The chases gave this second season's worth of "CHiPs," like the first, sort of a "travelogue" feel; in essence, I got the sense that I was being led on a guided tour of L.A. and its environs, right from my own home. This second season's worth of "CHiPs" represents part of the time period in which the series aired on NBC Saturdays from 8 P.M. to 9 P.M. In total, I have truly enjoyed this second season's worth of "CHiPs," and I heartily recommend it. Warning: this season is presented on three double-sided discs (at least for the episodes).

The extras include a documentary presented by Erik Estrada, entitled "The Real CHiPs", and a feature-length special called "The Greatest Adventures of CHiPs" that recounts (according to the package) "the coolest cases from Seasons One and Two." The extras are presented on a fourth disc, which is single-sided.

This season (unlike the first) also includes English, Spanish, and Portuguese audio, and English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French subtitles.

Overall, an excellent release from Warner Bros. of an excellent NBC series from MGM, and like I said, I heartily recommend it.

Baaah, baaah, buh, bum, bum will bring you back to one of the best shows made during the late 70's early 80's. This is a great show hopefully they release the next seasons soon either on Amazon Prime or Net----. The show and story lines have held up very well considering how old the show is and the best part is seeing L.A. streets and points of interest from that time. Amazing how that city has changed

The 4 Disc set released on 06/03/2008 (UPC# 0 53939 10792 0) is the one you want. It has episode #23 which was aired on 05/12/1979 "The Greatest Adventures of CHiPs", it was a 90min long clip show. The 2012 6 disc release (UPC# 8 83929 24853 7) only contains 22 episodes and it does not have the 90min clip show included. The photo on the left is the 2008 release and the 2012 release is on the right.
