1 Star Or 4?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kojak - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I had only vague memories of Kojak from my childhood but I enjoy my cop dramas and knew the show was highly thought of so purchased Season 1. Really enjoyed it so I then went to purchase this season.Was a bit hesitant after reading some of the comments here about quality but thought "how bad can it be?" The answer is bad! It maybe seemed especially poor to me as I was watching it virtually back to back with Season 1.
I sat through the first 15 minutes of the opening episode intent on sending the DVD back, composing a strongly worded 1 star review and wondering how anyone could get away with this in the 21st century.
But...but..but..the reason they can probably get away with it is the show.The episodes as a whole are just as good as (or maybe even better) than Season 1.The "worst" episodes are still entertaining, the best miles better than most stuff on the telly now (and probably then too).Great storylines,sharp dialogue, strong acting and a wonderful evocation of a time and a place.
I'm still taking a star off for the dodgy technical quality though!
