Man, that was a hard one to do! I seem to be spending far too much time on recent anal-ysis. But I still have a lot of shows to do for seasons three, four and five.

All that remains are some shows in season 5 and 7/8 of the Kojak movies...

Wow! Lots of consecutive 3 and 4 stars there. Makes me wonder if they really are that good. I don't recall you giving out this many 3 and 4 stars in a row for FIVE-O episodes.

When a show only lasts for five seasons, it is a lot easier to make decisions like this.

I guess KOJAK never got the chance to jump the shark, eh?

Same thing holds true for THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO. It only ran for 5 seasons and even though the last season was a bit weaker than the other 4 (mostly because Richard Hatch while serviceable was no "buddy boy") it was still a solid season. Heck we even got a special treat in the form of AH-NULD the future Governator as the main guest star in the episode "Dead Lift" as a mentally challenged bodybuilder (who else, right?).

There are some pretty bad episodes in the fifth season. I think the show did come very to shark jumping in the episode set in Las Vegas which had a guest apperance by Liberace (seriously), but that was the second-last show:

At least that episode is kind of logical, plot-wise, except for the very ending. On the other hand, this one made no sense at all:

And this one, which I just did yesterday, was pretty bad:

That last one was directed by Ernest Pintoff who did a few Five-O episodes, including the 2 hang gliding ones. Speaking of which, I'm actually in the process of writing my review for "Practical Jokes Can Kill You" which will bring my Thoughts on Season 9 thread to a timely end, with just 5 days to spare before IMDB closes its message boards.

Ringfire,

Looking forward to reading your review. A fitting end to the IMDb Five-O board!

Mike, I see that my man Christopher Walken guested in a season 4 episode of KOJAK. How would you rate that appearance versus his earlier appearance on FIVE-O as Walt Kramer? Which would you say is the stronger or more memorable performance?


by Mr. Mike Wed Apr 12, 2017 5:31 pm

Aside from the fact I haven't seen the Five-O episode starring Walken in ages, I think you are talking apples and oranges here...

Typically a Walken performance will stick with you so I thought you might remember it and might have a preference, even if they're different characterizations.
