Trivia

The show was filmed on the streets of New York City, as opposed to a studio lot. Things looked so real, that one night three NYPD cops joined in one scene and billy clubbed three extras they mistook for fleeing thieves. See more »

Fine drama
14 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Between this and Quinn Martin's Dan August, Burt's potential as a dramatic action star seemed sealed. He was good in this moody, jazzy and sometimes violent series. There was always that emphasis on his (American) Indian heritage and the wretchedness of his job (one episode dealt with the unrewarding job of a stool pigeon). Too bad Burt didn't seem to care much about his movie career considering the spate of bad films he made in the 70's (Deliverance notwithstanding).
