    deliver this speech in a Dragnet 1967 ep on what it is like to be a cop - something like - ( at the end of 10 minutes) a thankless, glamourlous job that needs to be done - and I'm damned glad to be one of them'

    Forget about Jack Webb. He had a stick up his ass.
    Kojack was the best TV cop ever.

    Dragnet ep was when a rookie cop (Kent McCord) was wrongly accused of corruption - and Friday and Gannan were doing the investigation.

    Good stuff - on par when The Fugitive( David Jansen) was cleared in the final 2 part episode. (The Judgement)

    They knew how to do TV back then.

    Lord (McGarett ) hated the bad guys.

    You could hear the anger in his voice when he said "book them"
