Call it Trivia!
3 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Forty five years ago when this series first screened, I was certain it would be a success. Why it was so short lived remains a mystery.

This series was in fact based on a particular Division within the Los Angeles Police Department. Metropolitan Division. Metropolitan Division was then, and remains today, the most selective of all LAPD Division's in selecting its personnel. Hence the name of the series, "The New Breed." It has grown in number and is the Division from which LAPD'S Special Weapons and Tactical Team (SWAT) was formed and remains to this day .

Leslie Nielson was outstanding as Lt. Price Adams. He had given a preview of his acting ability a few years earlier in the 1956 original production of "Ransom", in which he played reporter Charlie Telfer.
