Trivia

Sgt. F.J. Cameron watches McCloud on a firing range, impressed by his marksmanship, but puzzled when McCloud stops firing after only five rounds. McCloud explains to her that he always leaves the first chamber empty (with the hammer on it) to prevent the hair-trigger weapon from accidentally discharging as he draws it. This was a common practice with Colt .45 revolvers in the Old West, but McCloud never does it again (often firing more than six shots in a gunfight). See more »

Goofs

Vince Polk had to be scratching his head. Three weeks ago ("Horse Stealing on Fifth Avenue," episode 1.2), he was a detective second grade relaying information to Chief Clifford (himself a lieutenant at the time). Today he is a detective lieutenant in charge of the investigation into the stranglings. Next week ("Our Man in Paris," episode 1.6), he will be a detective assisting Broadhurst. Then he is off the show for the next three seasons, reappearing (again as an assistant detective) in "This Must Be the Alamo" (episode 4.5). He keeps this job until the series finale, "McCloud Meets Dracula" (episode 7.6) when he is a S.W.A.T. tactical officer. See more »

But certainly not in Paris

I was amused by this episode supposed to take place mostly in Paris France, not Texas. Amused because even the dumbest guy could see that every french scene is fake. Universal - or any other - Studios instead of actual Paris atmosphere. French accordion score during several sequences, of course, and french cars in the US studios fake streets. Many french dialogues, or with heavy french accent, but everything sounds phony here. I laughed because of this involuntary screenplay, for which I did not try to get the intrigue. I only laughed. But after all, why not?

But I assure you: this is a very pleasant piece of work. Quite entertaining, and I repeat, so involuntary funny.
