Great show
26 May 2003 | by melvillefanSee all my reviews

A great cop show of the 1970's whose writers weren't afraid to tackle some of the social problems of that era. Of interest was the interaction between two of the main characters Mike and Jill. Also of interest was the interaction between the three rookies Mike, Willie and Terry and their boss and mentor Lt. Ryker. Too bad TVLand stopped airing the show.
