Universal Home Video downplayed the timing of the release of the classic TV series Baretta featuring Robert Blake as part of a much bigger DVD release including TV series such as Law and Order, The Rockford files, Magnum P.I and Quantum Leap. Robert Blake is currently being held on charges relating to allegedly murdering his wife, Bonny Lee Bakely on May 4, 2001. The Blake case is the first high profile murder investigation in Hollywood since the O.J. Simpson spectacular. The Blake case has yet to go to trial
Ironically, Robert Blake played a bad-ass cop in Baretta which ran from 1975 to 1978. Now the LAPD’s finest are trying to tie up a case against him that holds water better than their investigation of the Simpson case. In the mean time, younger TV fans can get an idea of Blake’s work as a cop on DVD as of October 29, 2002.
