top-notch of its type
20 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent police procedural. Derived from "man from Cocise" but stripped of that previous series' sentimentality and occasional cuteness. Professionally written, produced, directed, acted, photographed, essentially a series of 50 minute B-movies.

On a par with M-Squad and Highway Patrol, in some ways ahead of its time. Future stars abound as villains and side-characters, including Michael Landon and Jack Lord.

Tough dialog, tough situations, violent, sharp edge. just great entertainment for those who love Police procedural/action films with cheaper budgets.
