Storyline

Officer Dan Shay was a married policeman in his twenties with the Los Angeles Police Department. Since he looked much younger than his age, he was very useful in undercover situations. He often posed as a student or a naive young man on the wrong side of the law. Keeping his head together at home was his cute wife Joanne and young daughter Cindy, while Sgt. Abrams was his firm police superior. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

This show was very underrated
8 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very timely show, and being around the same age as David I could relate to it completely. I would put in the same category with "Straightaway" which was a "teen" show back in the 60's. I guess because David's character was not a "teenie-bopper star" like the Partridges,it wasn't a big hit. I was disappointed when it was canceled because I thought there many plot points that could be addressed over the years. They did an episode on the California road racing scene, later featured in the movies "Mulholland Drive" and "The Fast and The Furious." They was the first episode I watched as was really blown away. Simon Oakland was great as his boss, much nicer than Darren McGavin's boss in "Night Stalker."
