I Remember This One Too...Fondly
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this one fondly. I was 14 at the time and had thoughts of being a cop. This was also the time that "The Six Million Dollar Man" was on ABC as well. (SMDM was one of my favorites.)The premise was that an android cop could be more affective on the street if he could learn to be compassionate. This is where Ernest Borgnine's character came in. Using slang of the time (Head Honcho), he slowly taught Haven the human aspects of being a cop. Unfortunately, this series aired while I was at my Boy Scout meeting and I was unable to see many episodes.

The best scene for me was when Haven had been shot several times while trying to save his partner. Like the Energizer Bunny running down, he slowly goes down as the bad guy empties his weapon into Haven's chest. Borgnine, amazed beyond belief, rushes to his partner's side in an attempt to comfort him only to discover his secret. The scenes that follow further cement the relationship between Borgnine and Haven.

For the 70's SciFi buff, this series is a memorable one.
