Sam McCloud is a Marshal from a Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
This started a movement in TV crime shows where females weren't just the passive victims of male dominated fantasy crimes. This lady hit back. And what a punch she packed. An action packed series that introduced us to some great supporting characters and kept mums as well as dads on the edge of their seat. Angie Dickinson never camped it up (as much as you couldn't in the 1970's) It was as gritty as the execs would allow. Despite the pilot episode being called Police Story - it was obvious from the outset who the star of the show was.
In its prime I had reached the grand old age of 10 - whereby this was the first adult TV series I was allowed to stay up and watch. Thanks Mom & Dad
