That has GOT to chafe!
I couldn't disagree more with the other comment that we must thank god "Target" couldn't be made in this P.C. world...go back to your vanilla cop shows I say! In the 70's, Starsky & Hutch were tough, The Sweeney were tougher, The Professionals were tougher still but Target was the toughest of all. Right from the opening credits which featured a silhouetted fight scene and music that just screamed ACTION at you, Target was the kind of show you watched as a naughty vice. Patrick Mower was a hairy chest, medallion man of the 70's who knew who were the bad guys and proceeded to beat them up or gun them down depending on his mood. There were stunts, car chases and everything to make sure you didn't get bored. This was as far removed from the plodding Inspector Morse as you could get. Alas, the show was criticised as being too action packed and violent and it went just as it was becoming cult viewing (Patrick Mower and Brendan Price appeared in a drinks advert as Hackett and Bonny at one point) to be replaced by the boring, plodding breed of British TV detectives in the 80's and 90's.

As an aside, Target was created and produced by the guys who made Tom Baker's era as Dr. Who such a success...and they were criticised for putting action and violence into that show.
