Storyline

Attorney and US Navy vet Stuart "Mac" McMillan is appointed Commissioner of Police for the city of San Francisco. He often handles the very high profile cases personally. Helping him out on many of them is his wife Sally, who's father was a detective for the SFPD. In fact, Sally gets so involved that she often puts herself in harms way. They are often assisted by Mac's loyal, but somewhat inept assistant Sgt. Charlie Enright and their hard drinking, smart mouthed live in maid Mildred. Sadly, a few years after Mac's appointment Sally dies in a plane crash. Also, Mildred quits her position and is replaced by her scatterbrained sister Agatha. Also, in later years Enright is promoted to lieutenant. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Not a sexless marriage
2 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Just wanted to comment on one reviewer's view that the 'relationship between Mac and Sally seems sexless in hindsight.' Keep in mind your hindsight is now colored by your knowledge that Rock Hudson was gay. Watching those episodes years ago (and re-watching them now), what actually came across was that Mac and Sally had a very active sex life. Unlike Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore, they actually got to sleep in the same bed (where they're frequently shown making out under the covers). There are lots of scenes showing the characters kissing, hugging, giving each other sexy looks, etc., (which is all any married couple in an early 1970s TV show is going to be shown doing; this isn't NYPD Blue). Sally's even pregnant by the end of the first season.

Which leads to a question – what ever happened with that storyline? In season two, suddenly Sally's not pregnant. (But a few years later, she's pregnant AGAIN). Is it ever explained why no kids ever get added (something that, admittedly, would probably NOT have been good for the show)? Current rerun prints don't feature any scenes explaining that, say, Sally lost the baby – does anyone know if there were ever any such scenes in the first place?
