Format: DVD
UPDATE: I notice Amazon has attributed this (and the reviews of many others) to the Region 1 'Shout Factory' release of Kojak Season 2 - please note, my comments aren't in relation to their set. My comments are in relation to the European release via 'Mediumrare Entertainment'. I paid the extra for the Shout Factory release and can confirm that their set is remastered to a very high standard and deserves a 5 outta 5 rating.

The disclaimer at the start of each DVD did, I must admit, give me cause for concern - "Please note that whilst every care has been taken to ensure the quality of the programme, due to the age of the original materials the technical quality of the programme may be slightly impaired in places" Translation, "Due to us being lazy and wanting to maximise profits, we simply couldn't be bothered to spend any money on remastering any of the episodes of this classic series" - sorry, call me cynical but "the age of the original materials" - erm... this season is only 36 years old..! I'd expect to see such a disclaimer on material from the 1930s but not on a show from 1974! Sorry, as a fan of classic television, i.e. Perry Mason; Hawaii Five-0; Mannix and the like, I expect to see better!
Given the history of Kojak on DVD (a 5 year hiatus between the release of series 1 on disc and this season); I'd have expected them to be spending that time on cleaning up the episode prints for this release.
So, a word on the `quality', the episodes are simply washed out - they have the appearance of something you would have taped on VHS back in the days when the show was being re-run. Print wise, the episodes are watchable, but they lack any vibrancy and, in the main, appear washed out. Colours are dull and the images lack any crispness.

I Have just recived this DVD from the US (SHOUT factory)and its so very cool compaird to the MEDIUM-rare. UK,release, the colour is rich & dos not bleed and picture Quality is far superior, so folks DON`T BUY the UK Release of SEASON 2 or 3 But 4 & 5 are very good, check my reviews, its very anoying that we have to buy these boxsets AGAIN when they have been very BADLY PRODUCD, but Ho Hmm, if your a fan of such a GREAT SHOW AS KOJAK then.......,UNIVERSAL should have just remaster all the seasons when season one came it must come down to lazyness and GREED, so if your a KOJAK fan then you won`t be dissapointed with this some of the customers on AMAZON.COM have rated the SHOUT factory so CROCHER go get me one.... MEOW BABY you`ll love it?

Note - This review is specific to the excellent Region 1 Shout Factory release, and NOT the terrible Region 2 Mediumrare effort.

Lt. Theo Kojak - probably one of the coolest telly detectives of them all. Played with infinite charm by Telly Savalas, Kojak is a tough New York policeman who is about as straight as you can get, doing his best to keep the innocent citizenry safe. A character with wit and intelligence, a heart, and a no-nonsense approach which allows the rules to be bent if it means bringing a villain to justice. Savalas is perfect in the role, his imposing physical presence filling the screen and his magnetic charm keeping you glued to the set. With his nattily dressed style, deep reassuring voice and well chosen naturalistic sounding `street' dialogue, Kojak is an impressive and believable construct, almost a living being rather than a work of fiction.

The joy of the series for me is that while it has a strong central character in the form of Kojak, it also has a very strong supporting cast, especially Dan Frazer as Kojak's Captain, and Kevin Dobson as Crocker, Kojak's number two. Kojak might have the brain that fits the pieces together, but the detective work shown here relies on a team, all doing the boring stuff of checking files and making endless phonecalls in order to find the clues Kojak needs. It's as much about the team as it is about the main character. That the script writers managed to make mundane policework look so interesting is a testament to their abilities.

just bought this kojak season 2 and yes i did read the review of others who had bought it and was a bit sketchy but took the plunge anyway- what a bozo i am or anyone who buys this item from this point on
the picture looks like a cross between a poor car boot bootleg and a home movie or like its been watched through two milkbottles held up as bincoulars, it must be a basic NTSC video transfer -why is it season 1 looks great yet this look rubbish- i didnt even get past the title sequence without fast forwarding to see if i was believing what i was looking at!!!

i had bought with this season streets of san fransisco ( made earlier ) and looks like bluray quality
i know you need to see it to believe me how terible this quality is but its better on the tv reruns on ITV4 rather than this dvd boxset

my nan had cataracts and now i see what she went through- all i need to know is how can i get my money back ?
