For most of my fellow Americans Donnelly Rhodes was just a goof on SOAP. For me he was a Det. on the clean but mean streets of Toronto. This show seemed to foreshadow the person-on-the-ground feel of Hill Street Blues. In fact, when HSB first appeared, I thought it was an American adaption of Sidestreet. Many of the plots are fuzzy in my aging memory now. But I can tell you when I was a kid with a 10" Black and White TV I looked forward to few things more than an hour with the officers of Sidestreet. Kicking theme too. I believe it was Chuch Mangione (boy I feel old now) who performed it. Rivals anything Mike Post and Pete Carpenter could come up with. For me it will be a DVD instant buy when available.
