All good things come to an end...
22 August 2005 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Especially when they happen to wander into the pop culture of middle America.

Mr. Grand, if you ever change your mind, I'd love a copy of your tapes of this abandonware. Seeing this program when it first appeared, I immediately recognized a class act, watched every episode I could, and was very disappointed, even angry, when the powers-that-be canceled it. "Heart of the city" (I suppose referring to Officer Kennedy, who definitely had one) was head and shoulders above most commercial TV fare, for which I've not had much time ever since.

In addition to the actors already commended, several of the last episodes featured a troubled boy 13-14 years old in which officer Kennedy took a special interest. Guest star Andre Gower so smoldered in that role, that I expected him to burn a hole in my TV screen any moment.

I'd be more of a fan of the police if I had any confidence that most of them were menschen with hearts like Officer Kennedy in this great series. Sadly, We the People are sticking them with such randomly and senselessly vindictive laws to enforce nowadays, and turning the American gulag into such a growth industry for opportunistic corporations, that any mensch must have more and more trouble doing such work in good conscience.
