"Police Story" is an amazing old cop show because it showed a HUGE range of duties by the police. Not only did you see uniformed officers and detectives, but SWAT teams and the 'brass' (Captains and the Chief). Additionally, the types of stories varied tremendously and in a few shows, like "Cop in the Middle", you have a cop who is no hero! Because of the wide variety of stories, it's a darn shame that so far only Season One is available on DVD--and I strongly doubt if the rest of the shows will be released because there just isn't much demand.
In this story, Christopher George stars as Doug Rollins--a cop on the take with a local bookmaker, Reggie (Albert Paulsen). When Reggie is about to be indicted and sent away to prison, he decides to play his trump card--and he shows Rollins film of his taking a bribe. Why? Because Reggie wants Rollins to destroy evidence--something Reggie just can't bring himself to do. What's next? See the show.
In addition to the actors above, the show also features Glenn Corbett as Rollins' partner and Sid Haig in a smaller role as Reggie's sidekick. The only reason I mentioned Haig is that this actor has a HUGE cult following and his fans would certainly want to know.
The episode is very well written and acted--making it about average for the series. Well done and well worth your time.
