It was a real treat seeing this series again. The bikes and action are great. Also the stories are good fun and the actors do their job well. It is a light-hearted show, but we all need that sometimes, especially in recent times. I hope that seasons 3-6 and the reunion tv movie ChiPs 99 are also released soon, as it seems to be taking a long time. The DVDs in this set are double-sided, unlike season 1, which I think was a good decision, as it means the overall package is smaller and takes up less shelf space. It just means you have to be a bit more careful when handling the disks, which is no problem. This is a great show, which is worth watching and always cheers me up. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Season two carries on in the same fashion as season one, but with a new addition to the team: Officer Sindy Cahill, who sometimes joins the motorcycle patrol in a patrolcar. Bright and bubbly Francis "Ponch" Poncherello and easy-going Jon Baker patrol the California highways, while trying not to incur the wrath of Sgt Getraer. The men face many varied and challenging situations in the line of duty, including: escorting a convoy of volatile chlorine gas, an Halloween patrol, a pot smoking gang out for revenge against the two buddies, and the department finds itself in disease quarantine. The stories are a great blend of drama and cheerful humour.
Apart from all 22 season two episodes, the two special features are a feature-length episode "The Greatest Adventures Of CHiPs", in which Jon and Ponch's exploits in season one and two are remembered, and a featurette, "The Real CHiPs" with Erik Estrada.
Picture and sound quality are good. The soundtrack languages are: English, German, Italian. The subtitle languages are: English, Dutch, German, Italian. Three of the four discs are double-sided, and are stored in a single-size case.
great series, 22 episodes with great vintage cars/bikes/trucks/hair and clothes...and all done in the spirit of good humour and public service! Takes you scooting along the sunny LA freeways where every other car was either a VW aircooled beetle or a US built car the size of a living room! Now this is GREAT once you've worked out the right disc and which side you need...difficult because each of the 3 discs is double sided and you have to look really closely, preferably with a magnifying glass to see the tiny writing on the inner circle of the disc telling you which one it is. For the myopic (me)it is a pain and done just to squeeze as much on as possible. On the last disc you in fact only get 2 episodes (the others all 4 per side) but you get a further 1 sided disc with special features. about 'the real CHiPS' + a 'greatest adventures of CHiPS' Would be 5 stars with standard DVD 1 side + visible labelling that people can see.
