Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

If there is one thing that life has taught me, it is that The Streets of San Francisco is "A QUINN MARTIN PRODUCTION!!" :(

Pretty good start for Mister Douglas' career. Certainly it was the first I ever knew of him.

Karl Malden was excellent in this of course and must have been a good time for his latter career, with the security of a weekly paycheck.

I don't really remember much about the episodes, but once again it is the opening titles, introductory voiceover etc. - and that funky guitar - that have stayed with me! :lol:

All I can remember about this series was me dad sitting in his armchair watching it and taking the piss out of Karl Malden's nose all the time i.e "Look at that, he's got a parting in the middle of his hooter" and "Bum nose". :lol:
