Really good cast and a really good TV Cop Drama
I am amazed that some shows only lasted a year. There are quite a few great shows that just never found an audience. 87th Precinct is one of them. Robert Lansing has to be one of the best actors TV has ever seen. I cannot remember not liking him in anything he has done. 12 o'clock High, he was great. His guest role on Star Trek was great. And in one of his later roles on Automan, he was wonderful. The other 3 actors compliment him very well. I bought the series on DVD because of Ron Harper. I know him from The Planet of the Apes TV show and the final season of Land of the Lost. He provides a good spark here. Norman Fell (forever Mr. Roper) does a fine job on the show. And finally Gregory Walcott. I as not real familiar with his work, but he fits in very well. I am really not a big fan of drama. I like a little humor added in. That is why I'm such a fan of Jack Webb's shows (Dragnet. Adam-12 & Emergency). They all had there moments of humor along with the drama. However 87th Princinct does have it's lighter moments. As a whole, almost all 30 episodes are good to great. Excellent wrtiting, acting and suspense.
