    Fisrt telecasted on September 15th, 1977 until July 17th, 1983 for a total of 6 seasons which I hope will be released very shortly.
    “CHiPs” was one of the best 30 TV shows by audience size reaching 18th on the Sept/1979 – April/1980 season with a percentage of 21.5% of all homes that had a TV were tuned to this show, and for your information the # 1 TV show was “60 Minutes” which had a percentage of 28.4%, only 6.9% difference.

    Can’t wait for this to hit dvd, May 3, 2005

    This review is from: CHiPs: The Complete First Season (DVD)

    CHips was one of the coolest shows on tv from the 70′s = it featured, the in vogue chemistry of the time, two good-looking guys=one blond, one brunette, (for reference-look to dukes of hazzard & starskey & hutch) who worked together as cops on motorcycles catching the bad guys and featured another kool thing in 70′s tv shows= awesome car chases!! the stories were good and was fun too watch (can’t say that about the tv that’s on today=where we are saturated with no-shame “reality” tv with no story or originality to back it up to be considered a quality visual artform). With having charlies angels, dukes, wonder woman, the hulk and Starskey & Hutch on dvd==Chips is the final great 70′s tv show to make it to DVD!!!

    One of my all time favorites!, August 13, 2005

    This review is from: CHiPs: The Complete First Season (DVD)

    I am really really hoping that this series comes out on dvd because I enjoyed watching this show because of all the stunts and older cars.The stunts which in my mind,do rival the stunts in Dukes of Hazzard, my other all time favorite. I cannot stress enough that they need to put this series out on dvd! If they can put 4 seasons of the dukes of hazzard out then they should definetly sell this series! After all it was already said that CHiPs was a very popular show!
