In France, this series was dubbed with a lot of ad-libbing, as well as very funny---and often absurd---colloquialisms and phrases inherent to France culture, which often had very little to do with what is said in the American version. Because of that, the French version has more of a comic element to it, making the characters even more quirky and lovable. This is mainly what is behind this show's success and popularity in France. The actors who provided the dubbing were the real talent in France, but the French people hardly know dub artists and recognize the American actors instead. The same thing happened with the dubbing for The Persuaders, as well as with Jerry Lewis' films. See more »
Frequently throughout the series, a criminal will be seen using a revolver with a silencer attached. A silencer is useless on a revolver (except for the Russian Nagant M1895) as the sound of the gunshot will escape through the cylinder gap, the space between the front of the cylinder and the muzzle.

How can I begin to describe one of the best buddy/cop shows on the air in the Seventies? I looked forward to each episode and hated it when I had to miss it for some reason. The chemistry between David Soul and Paul M. Glaser was superb, with each man giving to his character that special something that can't be duplicated. The blond and the cute, the dark and the handsome, one a thinker, the other a doer, one quiet, one a little bit loud, but both very appealing....Did their best work in a red and white Torino. The show was at it's best when the powers that be let them do their own thing, at it's worst when it tried to comply with those who wanted it to be something it was not...it was not a show about social workers. It was a show about two cops and two men who cared about each other. It was at its greatest when it found the humor of life after all the chaos of the evenings episode. It was and is truly one of its kind. I loved it and cherish it as one of my favorite childhood shows. Thank you Paul and David!!
