A Great TV Series, But Long Forgotten
17 December 2005 | by sol-23See all my reviews

Back in 1961 this short-lived program was my favorite show on television. It was very similar to The Untouchables as far as story lines go, and in fact it was certainly a knock-off of the The Untouchables, which was developed for ABC by Quinn Martin, and The New Breed was the first series Quinn Martin developed on his own after he left ABC.

For some reason The New Breed was easier for an 11 year old child to follow and understand than was The Untouchables.

Leslie Nielsen was a great cop, and he played it seriously, totally unlike his slapstick Naked Gun and Police Academy movies. Back in those days Leslie Nielsen was a serious actor. John Beradino co-starred, right before he began his long run on General Hospital.

No one seems to remember this show but me.
