    This US detective series ran in the 1970s starring Carl Malden and Michael Douglas. Each 'act' was identified by a caption at the start. Any other examples? Other detective series like 'kojak' did not commence acts with captions

    Great TV show, and in the past, I posted too many thread in AH about one particular scene in an episode from season 3

    Fun fact. The narrator of The Fugitive was William Conrad, aka Cannon, who features in the list of Quinn Martin shows featured above. Love The Fugitive, great series, even if it does seem a bit hammy now.

    imagine how "exotic" these shows bust have been on RTE back in the 70's

    Can't say for certain if these were 'Quinn Martin' productions but I remember them as being staples of late night RTE viewing back in the day.. 'Mannix' and 'Banacek'.

    As soon as I saw the thread title the theme tune started an earworm for me. That grrrroovy wakka -wakka, waah, waah riff and the horn section kicking in... Always remember the frizzy haired hippy dude standing on the street corner during the opening credits. As a kid I kept wondering why he never featured in any of the episodes not realising that hippies at that particular street corner were an icon of San Fran at the time.

    gave Michael Douglas his big break - wonder how many of the female production staff did he screw?
