Storyline

Sam McCloud is a town Marshal from Taos, New Mexico. He goes to New York to find an escaped criminal, and there falls for reporter Chris Coughlin, who is the cousin of the deputy police commissioner. After he tracks the criminal down, Chris convinces her cousin to request that Sam be assigned to temporary duty with the NYPD to learn modern police methods. He is assigned to the detective bureau headed by Chief Peter B. Clifford, who is less than thrilled with having McCloud under his command and gives him nothing but menial duties. Sam always winds up deep in homicides, drug busts, and various other major crimes. He is often helped out by Sgt. Joe Broadhurst, and solves them using a combination of good police work and good old country know-how. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

This show got it idea from that Eastwood movie!
9 July 2004 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

I love this show as a young child, maybe not as much as "Happy Days", but alot. I seen re-runs of "Happy Days" and what a waste of time except for the first 2 seasons before the Fonz turn 70, and Richie looked like a father of 2. "McCloud" I saw a few years back on A&E and was surprised to see how well the show aged. I still laughed, and found the show tv-ish; entertaining but got a little formualted after a while. How often can the cheif get upset, and his folk manner became too much. The guy from BSG is on this show, as well a few notable guest like John Denver. The show were McCloud is in Australia is the best. There is another episode were Richard Dawson plays a mean one. I wonder if Arnold was in any episodes. This show must of got its idea from that Eastwood movie.
