Early in their careers, Miguel Ferrer and his brother Rafael Ferrer both were cast in guest roles on this series. Their episode were to be filmed so close together that the brothers went on vacation on location together, along with their father, José Ferrer. Invited to join them was their cousin, George Clooney, who had failed to find work a s a professional athlete and was at loose ends as to his choice of career. It was during this vacation that Miguel encouraged him to take up acting. See more »

Cagney and Lacey was one of the best acted, best written, best conceived police shows in TV history. Ranking alongside Hill Street Blues and Morse in terms of its quality, I would suggest it is one of the finest television series ever made, greatly surpassing most TV made today. Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless kept this series going so beautifully, with never a dull moment, and never anything less than perfect performances. So instinctive, so moving, so engaging and so charming - the two are among the great television partnerships. The gritty, honest dynamic those two wonderful actors generated is a beautiful achievement. It is actors like this that make television occasionally magnificent. What a shame we don't have anything to compare these days to this.
