Captain Matt Holbrook leads a squad of brave and tough detectives in a large, unnamed city. Instead of leading personal lives, they spend all of their time tracking murderers, thieves, corrupt cops, con-men and other lawbreakers. Holbrook's squad always consisted of three detectives, and rarely were all four men on a case at the same time.Written by

In the series' second season, Farr left the series and was replaced by Mark Goddard as Detective Sgt. Chris Ballard. Future Batman star Adam West joined the cast during the third season as Sgt. Steve Nelson. The series moved to NBC for its third season and was increased from thirty to sixty minutes. The series was also retitled to Robert Taylor's Detectives. A total of 97 episodes were produced before the series was canceled in 1962. The series was produced for Four Star by Levy-Gardner-Laven Productions, which produced other successful Four Star series, such as The Rifleman, and The Big Valley. See more »
A good cop show from the 60's with Robert Taylor leading his band of cops against the evildoers of the USA. I found the shows pretty predictable but always enjoyable. Taylor was wooden but it was great to see Adam (Batman ) West, Mark ( Lost in Space ) Goddard and Tige ( Mod Squad ) Andrews as the other detectives.The 30 minute shows never seem to air which is a pity as the ones I did see were great, but the 60 minute shows are a little padded but better on characters. Always worth a watch and better than the stuff TV churns out today.For my money I agree with the first comment that Tige Andrews was the best character in the series. His stories were generally the most believable.
