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>

One great show! We just couldn't forget Keith Partridge.
23 March 2002 | by (missouri USA) – See all my reviews

This was a terrific show, I remember it more than I do Keith Partridge. I was 15 at the time, and remember thinking what a great young actor David Cassidy was. What a great tragedy we wouldn't give Mr.Cassidy the chance he so greatly deserved to leave the Partridge Family behind. Great acting, great plots, great everything!

Try it again David, I'll watch, I think alot of people would.
