User Reviews

One of my favorite shows that needs to be on DVD.
9 August 2004 | by slmcfallSee all my reviews

I have been a Rin Tin Tin fan for years. Rin Tin Tin K9 Cop(Katts and Dog was the title outside the US) is a wonderful family show that shows the life of a police officer and his partner, a German Shepherd. Just like the original series the Adventures of Rin Tin Tin , there was action and family values in each episode. The father/son relationship played by Jesse Collins as officer Hank Katts and Andrew Bednarski as his nephew/ adopted son Stevie was believable and realistic. The show took place in a generic metropolitan city. Each week brought new stories and unlike many TV series it didn't go preaching to the viewer. This TV show deserves to be released on DVD to be viewed by a new generation of kids and allow us older fans to relive the enjoyment of a family oriented police show.
