Storyline

After many years of service as a Los Angeles police officer, Bumper Morgan remains a uniformed officer who walks a beat every day. This is not to denigrate his abilities as a policeman, since he has often been offered promotions, but Bumper prefers his life on the street. He knows everyone in his neighborhood, and is even willing to overlook minor transgressions if it will keep his beat relatively safe. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Quality TV

Back in 1975 there were many cop shows on tv right out of the same mold and most of them were stupid stories which were totally unbelievable and not worth watching. Then came The Blue Knight mini-series with William Holden which was a masterpiece. This was made into a weekly series a couple years later and the quality was left in with the location photography, good character actors and screen personana of George Kennedy who was almost as good in the starring role. Too bad this series made it only one year. Luckily in 1985, a local UHF station ran all the episodes and by then I had a vcr and saved every episode. I just watched one tonight and it was just as good as the best cop show presently on tv.
