Storyline

Captain Matt Holbrook leads a squad of brave and tough detectives in a large, unnamed city. Instead of leading personal lives, they spend all of their time tracking murderers, thieves, corrupt cops, con-men and other lawbreakers. Holbrook's squad always consisted of three detectives, and rarely were all four men on a case at the same time. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

atmospheric show
15 August 2007 | by LordOfAll777See all my reviews

A good cop show from the 60's with Robert Taylor leading his band of cops against the evildoers of the USA. I found the shows pretty predictable but always enjoyable. Taylor was wooden but it was great to see Adam (Batman ) West, Mark ( Lost in Space ) Goddard and Tige ( Mod Squad ) Andrews as the other detectives.The 30 minute shows never seem to air which is a pity as the ones I did see were great, but the 60 minute shows are a little padded but better on characters. Always worth a watch and better than the stuff TV churns out today.For my money I agree with the first comment that Tige Andrews was the best character in the series. His stories were generally the most believable.
