Gabriel's Fire

Show Summary

Gabriel Bird was a large, intelligent black man with a thundering voice and a cross to bear. He had once been a Chicago cop. One fateful day in 1969, he was involved in a botched raid during which he was forced to shoot his white partner rather than allow the him to kill an innocent mother and child in cold blood. The jury considered this to be not an act of heroism but of murder and sent him to prison for life. After 20 years as a model prisoner, Gabriel came in contact with an aggressive attorney named Victoria, who was fascinated by his case and the many irregularities in his trial. Convinced he was innocent, she got him released but Gabriel found that life outside could be even tougher for an ex-con, especially since many on the police force still hated and distrusted him. He became a private investigator for Victoria - using to his advantage, the inside knowledge he had gained on the police force and in prison. Louis was Victoria's assistant and Empress Josephine was Gabriel's longtime friend and the proprietor of a cafe where Gabriel hung out. Returning in the fall of 1991 - the title had been changed to Pros and Cons. The series was now about an upbeat Gabriel, who had almost magically shaken his anger of the previous season and smiled continuously. Moving to Los Angeles, he teamed up with a colorful, local private eye in their own agency, O'Hannon & Bird. The new, cheerful Gabriel and the mischievous, disorganized O'Hannon meshed perfectly. Gabriel and Josephine were eventually married in October 1991.moreless

    I watched this program faithfully until it was taken off. I wish it had stayed on for many more years. The acting was superb, the charactor development was solid, and the story line was every bit top notch.

    I miss the program. I never did find out why it was taken off the air, but I think it was ABC's error.
