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

As a David Cassidy/Partridge Family fan, I was very anxious to check out this series, and having finally found all the episodes, I was pleased to discover that this was actually a decent show. While it may be a little difficult to watch good-looking David act like a tough guy sometimes, he does a fine job as an undercover cop.
This is a lot better than a lot of 70's shows out there. A DVD release would be fantastic. I do have the whole series (only ten episodes) and the pilot from the show Police Story, which led to this becoming its own series. The cast is really good, especially the guy who plays the top cop. Why the girl who plays David's wife gets third billing in the credits is a mystery, as she's hardly even on the show, doesn't say much when she actually is on, and is probably the weakest on the show acting-wise. You may even see some familiar character actors in various roles throughout the series.
But this is an excellent show, very entertaining in a 70's way. David even drives a cool red early Mustang, that reminds me of the early Matchbox Superfast #8 Mustang. He also sings (and wrote I believe) the title song, which is good. The opening credits sequence is strange but definitely is a fun cheesy 70's opener. All-around fun show.
