The greatest T. V. series!
3 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

I love this show! It's dated, the humor is old, but who cares. The crimes committed are interesting, and Jack Webb is idealistic as a no-nonsense cop. I haven't seen the show in years though, because Nick at Nite doesn't run it anymore and I don't get TV Land (that sucks!)
