In November, ABC Television’s wildly popular action crime drama series The Mod Squad, which ran for five seasons from 1968 through 1973, will be issued in a 39-disc, complete series DVD collection for the first time ever.
The show revolved around three youthful and very cool investigators – Julie (Peggy Lipton), Pete (Michael Cole) and Linc (Clarence Williams III) – who solved crimes, apprehended heinous criminals and addressed social injustice. Being products of the flower-child era, they didn’t carry guns (or make the ultimate arrests), but instead wore beads and mod clothing, peppering their dialogue with slang of the day – like “groovy,” “keep the faith” and “solid” – all backed by a rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack.
