  • The godfather of all detective shows.

    This was one of the first police dramas on television. It was simple and straightforward, but very effective. The acting was on the terse side, as the lead stars portrayed no-nonsense cops who didn't really let us into their own lives-- they just solved the case. The scripts were like a procedural novel. They set forth the details of the case and then let the surprises come out of that. Everything here looks and sounds like it's straight out of "The Maltese Falcon." And that's a compliment. So when you want to see some gripping drama in which the officers of the law stand between the public and grave harm, this is what it was like--and this is how it should be done.
