Between this and Quinn Martin's Dan August, Burt's potential as a dramatic action star seemed sealed. He was good in this moody, jazzy and sometimes violent series. There was always that emphasis on his (American) Indian heritage and the wretchedness of his job (one episode dealt with the unrewarding job of a stool pigeon).
