Deadly Convoy Series

Episode two of season three was better than episode one, but since the latter was crap, that's not saying much. The direction had improved, and the cast seemed less stilted than the previous episode.

The general atmosphere was more reminiscent of the first two seasons. However, the script was awful-dull, plodding, and without enough material for one hour, let alone a two-parter. It lacked the zany wit and verve I had come to expect from this show. And they can't break up Agatha and James too quickly for me. Another problem was that Agatha herself was a bore. She was too 'in command' of everything. She lacked the vulnerabilities and eccentricities that have made her an interesting and sympathetic character.

Epic Police Convoy Assault is the eleventh episode of the series and is the first episode of the second season. In this episode, the Hellgang are trying to rescue Black Widow from a police convoy in West Coast, USA. The episode takes place one year after the events of the first season.

I hope this series can get back on track. It would be a shame if my favorite show went off the rails after only two seasons.

David Cassidy: Man Undercover (the word 'undercover' in the series title appeared at various times written as one word or two) is an American police drama starring David Cassidy, four years after his run starring in The Partridge Family, his first starring role since that series was cancelled. The series was spun off after Cassidy starred in a special two-hour episode of Police Story, titled 'A Chance to Live,' which aired in May 1978; this episode served as the pilot for Man Undercover.

In A Chance to Live, Cassidy portrayed undercover police officer Dan Shay, a cop who successfully infiltrates a high-school drug ring as a fellow student. Cassidy earned an Emmy Award nomination for Best Dramatic Actor for the role. He reprised the role of Officer Shay for the Man Undercover series, which aired on NBC from November 2, 1978 to July 12, 1979. Only ten episodes of the show aired prior to its cancellation.

The role of Shay's wife, portrayed in 'A Chance to Live' by Dee Wallace, was recast with actress Wendy Rastatter for the actual series.

This show is the last new filmed series from Columbia Pictures Television to display a copyright notice at the beginning under the show's logo.


Set in Los Angeles, the series stars Cassidy as undercover police officer Dan Shay. Each episode featured Shay going undercover in a different case. Simon Oakland starred as the head of Shay's undercover team.
