ok lets get the picture quality issues out of the way, its not great, but.. if youre looking at the pic quality when you watching these then find something else to do, these are rivetting tv. they make you wonder where good tv went and why are we now watching cooking programmes , reality tv and all the rest of it. once upon a time we could pull our chairs closer to the fire and enjoy towering performances from the likes of telly savalas as tv,s quick fire detective theo kojak. the stories are good the supporting cast is good and savalas fills the screen like almost no one before or since has ever done. the unsung hero of these is 1970s new york, dirty, noisy, fast paced and wonderfully sleazy. enjoy and wonder where all this type of tv went to in these pc times.
