#1 New York Times Bestselling Author & TV Producer
I love it. It’s Dukes of Hazzard-y. Starsky and Hutch-sky. It’s got a dude who looks like Captain Stottlemeyer. It’s got a young Michelle Pfiefer AND Jimmy “Dy-no-mite” Walker!
BTW, do you know what B.A.D. stands for? There should have been an announcer guy to tell us.
Thanks for the Opening Title.
Imdb says: “B.A.D.” stands for “Burglary Auto Detail,” and the B.A.D. Cats are a team of cops who investigate car thieves. Whee! I don’t know why this series didn’t run for years.
Oh my God. This was a midseason replacement from the days whan Aaron Spelling was programming about a third of ABC’s prime time. They didn’t get past the first batch – but they did one episode that I can’t forget (and believe me, I’ve tried). I’ll spare you the details, many of which I still can’t believe; I missed the first few minutes of the show, and thus missed the perfectly logical explanation of how an auto-theft squad gets involved in the investigation of a serial killer who targets prostitutes. Just two possibly tantalizing details:(1) the hookers in this fictional burg (Spellingvania?) are better organized than the UAW; (2) In the slam-bang climax of the show the hookers rescue the police from an angry mob. Really. I think. I’d have to see the show again to be sure. I will swear on the holy book of your choice that I didn’t make any of this up.
Awesome! That show was stored away deep, deep in the memory banks. I never realized that that was Michele Pieffer. Very cool blast from the almost forgotten past.
