It did exist!
skoyles1 August 2003
For years no one would believe me when I described this series: a detective who was the first on television to use karate. Was he the first? Of that I am not sure, but he was certainly the first to appear on Detroit television. Undistinguished otherwise, the fight scenes were a revelation in that time of haymakers and wrestling.

Yes, It Did Exist.

I remember this show very well. Rick Jason (who was tall , dark and handsome in a sinister way) starred as Robin Scott an insurance investigator. But the unique thing about the show was that the hero was skilled in martial arts, something never seen on TV before. It would have had a longer run except Jason hurt his back during the filming and the show got axed. This is one of those shows that only a few die hard TV fans would remember. I also believe it was on Friday nights (well at least in New York). Rick Jason had a longer career on TV in Combat (which was not one of my favorites) but he was really smooth as silk as Robin. What a shame that he took his own life. He really was a pretty good actor.
