This is a absolutely fabulous show, much better than the original due to the current technology in graphics and other factors. The acting, plots and storylines are excellent. This program is a must return. On a par with Monk all day.
I am 62 years old and I have enjoyed the Kojak series, both with Telly and Ving equally. The 2005 series is undeniably better because of newer technology but the plot lines and the personal situations really hieghten the overall programming. The toughness of Ving coupled with his hidden soft side and the subtle lovelife makes for a program that wends it's way in an out of the viewers personal lives as well. I have found a better attitude on my part for the police community due to the show. It is a must to bring it back.
