Did You Know?


This two-part episode was the pilot for a potential spin-off series titled "Off Duty". Each episode was to focus on one of the detectives' home life. In the early version of this idea, Wojo and recurring character Det. Janice Wentworth played by Linda Lavin were to move in together. But by the time this episode was produced, Lavin was starring on Alice (1976) and Wentworth no longer appeared. Other episodes would have focused on Miller's family (who were featured in the first season but phased out), Harris and Dietrich as roommates, and Fish and his wife as foster parents to many kids. This latter part of the original version became the spin-off series Fish (1977). See more »

Doris Roberts and Peter Hobbs, round two
1 June 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Wojo's Girl" was originally a one hour broadcast, inexplicably split into two for IMDb, despite the fact that the hour long episodes of SOAP all count as single entries. This first half centers on Harriet Brauer (Doris Roberts, third of four), last seen in "The Sighting," in which her husband Phillip (Peter Hobbs, fourth of six) was obsessed with gold. Now he's switched from appliance salesman to amateur mercenary, subscribing to 'Combat Quarterly,' published by Col. Charles Dundee (Michael Conrad), going so far as to purchase a bazooka. Meanwhile, disgruntled vacationer Frank Mallory (Philip Bruns, second of four) reports that after taking his wife on a second honeymoon to Europe, something they've been planning for ten years, she's decided on divorce! Travel agent Nells Finney (Lewis Arquette) made it clear to him that it wasn't the deluxe package, resulting in '28 days of horror,' and now the despondent Mallory wants a refund. Darlene Parks as Wojo's new girlfriend Nancy sets up the second half of this episode, in which no other cast members appear.
