Oh what joy! Here we are with the final season of STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO. While the scripting for this season was still very good, with Richard Hatch (as Det. Dan Robbins); somehow the show didn't have the same feel to it as it did with the long-standing partnership of Karl Maldon and Michael Douglas (departing after episode two) that made the show so famous. Nevertheless, it was still a very enjoyable year for the show and it will be wonderful to finally have the entire series on DVD. Here is a preview of what we will have to look forward to with this October 30, 2012 release:
