Reynolds when he was young
5 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Reynolds' golden era is the time of Smokey and the Bandit when he was around 40years old.This series is before he really hit it big,about 7years before Bandit,and before he established himself as a funny-guy from Johhny Carson's show.So,here he is not trying to be funny but rather plays it straight and being rather the heavy cop type.Still its interesting because he is young and probably in the best-looking time of his career,especially if you like him better without mustache. Several other stars make guest appearances,the stories are typical cop-fare of the time and Reynolds does some interesting stunts himself that make it all more believable.This series lasted only one season so there's not too much of it and i would expect to see it on DVD,at least for Reynolds' fans but its not available yet.
