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.
Quincy and Sam are working as Coroners. Inspecting dead people they often see facts that don't match the theories of the police how or if really they were murdered. Written by

Marc Scott Taylor was originally hired as a technical advisor but became a semi-regular cast member because he could operate electron microscopes and other complex instruments. It was more cost effective to give him a recurring bit-part than to train the actors to operate the equipment convincingly. His role was greatly expanded in an episode in which "Sam" had been poisoned and "Mark" helped Dr. Quincy save his life. He eventually provided a couple of scripts for the show and by season seven had become a co-producer. See more »
So every episode seemed the same? Every episode of I Love Lucy was the same too, and that's a classic. Heck, 90% of TV is the same episode over and over again. This show is great. Before a couple years ago, I wasn't a huge fan of 70s TV, especially dramas, but I'm hooked on this show. The cast is great, the characters delightfully predictable and occasionally over-the-top, and the storylines intriguing. Great stuff. And I got a huge kick out of the fact that Garry Walberg (Lt. Monahan) was also Speed on The Odd Couple. Guess he and Jack followed each other around. LOL
