87th Precinct-A Forgotten Classic

8/10
Author: gnrjr50 from United States
31 March 2007

This was an excellent program that should have run longer. Robert Lansing was an excellent Steve Carella and the other characters were also good. The only thing different from the novels was Roger Havilland portrayed by Gregory Walcott. On the show, he was a tough but likable person whereas in the novels he was a brutal jerk. The earliest episodes were the best in my opinion. Especially the very first two, The Floater and Lady in Waiting. I was lucky enough to find VHS copies on eBay. In another episode, The Very Hard Sell, Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek fame appears as a very nasty drug pusher while Arte Johnson later of Laugh-In appears as a desk clerk at a fleabag hotel.

This would make an excellent DVD collection, but of course, it is probably not well remembered although McBain's series of novels are very popular.
