Good Cop Drama, Never Got A Chance
bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
22 July 2007
I remember this series from the Seventies as it was Robert Stack's
third television series after The Untouchables and The Name of the
Game. It was good, but did not get renewed after one season. That's a
pity because it was never given a real chance to find its audience.
Mayor Hari Rhodes of Los Angeles creates an elite squad within the LAPD
to apprehend the most dangerous criminals headed by Robert Stack and
assisted by Shelley Novack and JoAnn Harris. Rhodes's character was
based on real life Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley.
There was such a squad with the LAPD and it was disbanded later on when
it got to thinking it was a law unto itself. That was dealt with in the
Lou Diamond Phillips, Scott Glenn film Extreme Justice. That was long
after this series was canceled.
No chance of it being revived with the sudden tragic death of Shelley
Novack the following year. Robert Stack later did Elliot Ness for a TV
film based on his Untouchables character, but no call to revive Captain
I do remember Jo Ann Harris though, she was one beautiful and sexy
woman. I'll bet she still is.
I'm glad I'm the first to review and remember Most Wanted. A good cop
show that never got a chance to find its audience.
