During season 3, the producers decided to kill off Sgt. Bernie Terwilliger, played by James Whitmore Jr. When Fred Dryer got wind of his fellow actor's demise, he objected. As a consequence, the script was quickly revised and Robert Firth - who had portrayed Riley Causland in the previous season - was brought in to take the fatal bullet. In an odd twist of fate, Dryer's friend Whitmore ended up directing the sequences. See more »
Ya need a date?
Yeah. You got somebody in mind who doesn't look like a cop?
Uh, wait a minute now. You look more like a cop than I do.
Hunter, if you looked any more like a cop, they'd give you a TV series where you got to play one!

This was a great show when it first aired in the 80's and it still is a great show in re-runs and on DVD. It says something about a series when it is still being aired 20 years after its original date. The production value for this show with all its action and stunt sequences was incredible. Of course, the chemistry between Fred Dryer and Stephanie Kramer was what really made this show. You were always thinking, "Are they ever going to date?" LOL - good memories. It's too bad that Stephanie Kramer had to quit the show because of health issues (kept spraining/breaking her ankle because of all the stunt work involved - surprising, considering she was a former female wrestler). Unlike the A-Team in that it had lots of hard stories, murder, blood, and violence. But very exciting to watch!
