McCann attributes his distrusting attitude to being shot three times during an ambush set up by his partner and another cop for refusing to partake in their bribery scheme. Since he was unable to identify the assailant, no one was ever brought to justice for the act, and he was forced to find work in another city.
First episode to use the new opening sequence, which includes Holly Robinson, Steven Williams, and Michael Bendetti. Peter Deluise is also included with a "Special Appearance" credit for the remainder of the episodes he appears in.
This is the first appearance of Michael Bendetti as Officer Tony "Mac" McCann.
