I thought most folks had forgotten about this show...in one of the first shows the good guys (stranded in a desert town) tried to ward the police flying in a helicopter to thge bad guys setting up an ambush...one of them just "happened to hve a stotgun shell in his pocket" (thanx to the property master) and got a stray thread from one of the women's dresses...and used it as as fuse to set off the shell...not knowing the impossibility of that at the time, I thought it was cool (prolly why the scene is burned into my memory).  In reality, they would have had to remove the pellets & wadding to egvfen get to the propellent charge which would've merely burned...not 'exploded' (again thanx to both the property manager and the special effects guy)...CB in FL

It starred Robert Taylor and was actually called Robert Taylor's Detectives.
