The action-packed cases of 2 cops, one white one black, in LA. A wisecracking combination, with plenty of action, chases and explosions thrown in for good measure. Written by

As a reference to Wolf Larson's previous role in Tarzán (1991), Larson's character, Chase McDonald, visits a suspect in prison who is giving a Tarzan yell when he arrives. The suspect says, "Pretty good Tarzan, huh?" to which McDonald replies, "I've heard better." See more »
"L.A. Heat" is one of my all-time favorite TV shows from the 90's. It has a very interesting and intriguing story line, many intense action scenes, good humor, impressive locations etc. Many people compare this series to the Lethal Weapon franchise. Well, I consider it as a TV version of Lethal Weapon.
The cast did a great job too. Wolf Larson was brilliant as Det. Chester 'Chase' McDonald. Yes, he reminded me of Mel Gibson's Martin Riggs. Believe me, Chase was as great as Riggs. Steven Williams, Renee Tenison, Dawn Eason and Kenneth Tigar were no less impressive.
The main theme is another achievement of this show. Even nowadays it sounds very fresh. BRAVO!! There is only one bad thing about this show
it was canceled! It deserved way more than 2 seasons.
Brilliant but so underrated series!!!
