Television police drama starring two female cops as partners. Their contrasting personalities (one is tough and the other sensitive) strengthen them as a team, allowing each a different perspective on both personal and professional situations. Written by

The show was canceled at the end of the 1982-83 season, due to low ratings. In response, viewers wrote to CBS, protesting the cancellation. This effort, combined with the show's increasing ratings during the summer reruns, prompted the network to reverse the decision. Although the cast members had just been released from their contracts, they were soon brought back to work on the show. The series was reinstated in March of 1984, and ran until 1988. See more »
Mary Beth Lacey:
We go in together and it's 'Hello, Sgt. Cagney,' 'How ya doing, Sgt. Cagney?' I may as well have stayed in the car.
Oh Mary Beth.
Mary Beth Lacey:
And when we go to the lab, Solomon offers you sushi, me, I get fiber samples. Don't tell me you never noticed.
Well, maybe one or two times. You know how men are.

Actor Sidney Clute passed away during the run of the series. In every episode after his death, his name and picture still appeared in the opening credits. That was done by the producers as a tribute to him. See more »
Tyne Daly (Christy) played Detective Mary Beth Lacey. Sharon Gless, (The trials of Rosie O"Neill) was Detective Christine Cagney. This was a show about two women who worked together and became good friends outside their job. Harvey Lacey,Tony LaTorre, was a nice and understanding husband.This show was really well done and we enjoyed watching it. It is always good to see women playing that type of role. There is one episode that stuck with me. It was about Hispanic illegal aliens in the United States living in horrible conditions, even in the attic of a building. They were chasing them and purposefully missed them, by saying: "there is nobody here." That was a nice episode where they showed a lot of compassion.
