MCCLAIN’S LAW/NBC/1981-82 (Injured Leg)
Jim McClain (James Arness), a police detective forced to retire from the San Pedro police force because of a leg injury.
Living along the water front, McClain’s leisurely life was disturbed by the murder of his fisherman partner. Convinced the only way he could effectively track down the killers was to get access to police files etc., McClain fought to get reinstated into the police force (he was rehired despite his disability).
A dinosaur from the early days of detective work, McClain adjusted to today’s high-tech police methods as he partners with Detective Gates (Marshall Colt), a by-the-book cop whom McClain does not like.
