Karl Malden played veteran SF homicide cop Mike Stone, who was newly paired with rookie detective Steven Keller, played by Michael Douglas. Stone showed the green Keller the ropes of policing the city while Keller used his criminology degree and understanding of modern technology to balance the equation. Darleen Carr has an occasional role as Stone's daughter and Keller's eventual love interest.
This was a solid, enjoyable series and the teaming of Malden and Douglas was an excellent one. Malden and Douglas are one of the best TV teams in the industry. This show is one that is still entertaining almost forty years later.
Since the show rarely comes on TV as reruns I bought the various volumes of epsiodes on DVD to enjoy.
I am a San Francisco, Karl Malden, Michael Douglas fan and I watched these at home when they first aired back in the early seventies.
Yes, some of the stories and some of the the lighting are a bit, "early seventies" but I want to have every one of these. And if you like old cars, every car on the street is a classic. I love seeing (and mapping) the San Francisco scenes. I love the seventies fashions ... very nostalgic!I hope that of all the remaing seasons are released soon. Keep 'em coming Amazon!
I recommend this series for anyone who liked the Streets of San Francisco. I have Season 1 but i like Season 2 better. Once it arrived, I stayed glued to the tv, watching show after show. Karl Malden and Michael Douglas worked great together. I have been a fan of Michael Douglas's since i use to watch this show. I saw his star quality back then, before he got famous.
