Appalling and short-lived 1988 TV series tailor-made for France's absurd superstar Johnny Hallyday. Extremely conservative characters and screenplays make for painful watching, in addition to aspects that didn't age well at all (beginning with the computers in the police offices, but what can you do about it?). Hallyday plays a rogue cop with a heart of gold, motor-riding, dressed in black leather, chewing gum, chain-smoking and being rude to the villains. Typical French TV fare of the time, nothing to be proud of. THe great film director Samuel Fuller appears in one of the four episodes "L'enfant Américain" and is about the only redeeming feature of the whole affair (well, there's also André Wilms, a great theater actor, probably in it for the money). Fuller plays Mr Capodagli, a very mean Mafia boss using very mean tricks to have a poor innocent child killed. His cursing, cigar-smoking and evil beyond belief character is fun to watch, as is always the case with Fuller's acting appearances. Fuller worked mainly in France at the time (where he shot at least two films), which may explain his being present on the set.
