I absolutely love the new Kojak series!
8 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't have a lot to say except, I can't wait for the new episodes each week! I am a big fan of sarcastic humor, in addition to smooth characters. Ving Rhames pulls off the role with his ability to make anyone understand how situations can be handled versus how you would actually want it handled. I hope the series makes it through for several more seasons. I am kind of itching for Kojak's love life to become more a part of the show, but I guess as people say, patience is a virtue. I think the Kojak/Carmen combination is right on point. There is a definite chemistry with all of the characters/actors of the show. Outside of the late hour, I wouldn't change a thing. And because of Tivo, the hour really isn't an issue. I applaud TNT and Mr. Rhames for the spin they've put on Kojak. Even my husband can't wait for the next week. Thumbs up for Kojak!
