These Cops Work Hard to Play it Cool.
The Mod Squad returns to DVD, featuring the remaining 13 Season Two episodes on 3 discs! Pete Cochran (Michael Cole), "Linc" Hayes (Clarence Williams, III), and Julie Barnes (Peggy Lipton) are young people who were on the wrong side of the law. Taken in by Captain Adam Greer (Tige Andrews), they're assigned to a special task force working undercover for the police. Now these counterculture cops can infiltrate places that only kids know about. The action-packed series, executive produced by Aaron Spelling and Danny Thomas, was one of the first to address social issues -- and became a pop culture sensation! Drug dealers, kidnappers, and con artists are just some of the criminals Pete, Linc, and Julie take down in Season 2 - Volume 2 of The Mod Squad, on DVD for the very first time!

"...iconic in the way it assimilated a multicultural cast to do something young and fresh...Definitely worth a look.  Brett Cullum, DVD Verdict
"...an absolute must have; it is a piece of our history. Even if you were born a bit later it is still great television so sit back and enjoy.  Home Theater Info
"...the style and overall vibe of the show make for a fun trip back to the late 60s. Can you dig it?  Jeremy Lynch, Crimespree Cinema
"...a hip cop show that brought the language of the streets and the sensibility of late-'60s Sunset Boulevard to standard-issue stories of thugs and drugs.  Noel Murray, The Onion A.V. Club
"...has plenty of soul and style for the nostalgically minded fans who want a solid trip back in time.  Paul Mavis, DVD Talk

Editor's Note
Cops and hippies never got along--that was, until the MOD SQUAD arrived on the scene. Debuting in 1968, the hit series offered a countercultural spin on the conventional police drama. Able to go places normal cops couldn't, the Mod Squad included a diverse group of troubled young adults: rich-kid-turned-car-thief Peter (Michael Cole), Watts rioter Linc (Clarence Williams III), and free-spirited runaway Julie (Peggy Lipton). Together, they formed a tenuous alliance with the fuzz, going undercover to nab lowlifes who preyed on the young while also grappling with the moral dilemmas presented by selling out to "the man." Though the premise may have seemed far-fetched, the series was actually based on the experiences of series creator Bud Ruskin, who worked in an L.A. narcotics squad. This collection presents the second volume of the landmark series' second season.

Expert Review The Mod Squad - Season 2, Volume 2 - DVD Review
By: Jet Gardner Blogcritics.org Reviews

The first thing you’ll notice about this collection is the crystal clarity of the transfer. It caught my eye in Captain Adam Greer’s (Tige Andrews) office when I could read the labels on his file cabinets and had I wanted to, I could have paused the picture and counted the hairs on his head. This DVD set is a perfect time machine, revealing an era when detectives actually had to think a puzzle through without the help of forensics or a bank of supercomputers. The Mod Squad was so successful because the four main characters comprised a classic ensemble cast that became closer than family....read the full review
