Trivia

During season three, the producers decided to kill off Sergeant Bernie Terwilliger, played by James Whitmore, Jr. When Fred Dryer got wind of his fellow actor's demise, he objected. The script was quickly revised and Robert Firth, who had played Riley Causland in the previous season, was brought in to take the fatal bullet. In an odd twist of fate, Whitmore ended up directing the sequences. See more »

Vehicles often explode when they crash. This is not probable because automobiles and other vehicles do not use explosive fuel, only flammable fuel. See more »

Quotes

Hunter: Can you imagine what it's like to sit there for two days and answer personal questions about your sex life?
Dee Dee: Yeah, it's like that every time I go to visit my mother.

All time best cop show made!
3 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was the all time best cop show made. Fred Dryer and Stepfanie Kramer were matched perfectly and Charles was great as the captain. If you have never seen it you missed out. The story lines were great and the show was kept realistic.
