Legendary producer Aaron Spelling was building his television dynasty (along with then-partner Leonard Goldberg) when he made this early 1970s ABC series about several young policemen (Georg Stanford Brown, Michael Ontkean, Sam Melville) and their crusty commanding officer (Gerald S. O'Loughlin).
Kate Jackson also had her first major prime-time role in the show, but notable here are some of the guest stars before they landed their own stardom ... including John Travolta, Sissy Spacek and Nick Nolte. *** (Not rated: AS, V)
