SEASON ONE

0. Pilot
We are introduced to Detective Lieutenant Mike Stone and Inspector Steve Keller as they hunt for the murderer of a girl found dead in the water. While the lawyer that saw her last seems a likely suspect, a revelation concerning her brother and an unrelated case throws light on another possibility.

1. The Thirty Year Pin
When Mike's old partner gets shot and ends up critically ill in hospital, Keller is forced to start tracking his partner to save him from himself. An excellent episode for character development, as Stone pushes Keller away and goes for revenge. Keller dogs his partner and desperately tries to break through Mike's anger to ensure the case gets seen through properly.

2. The First Day of Forever
Our partners work to guard the survivor of a series of brutal knifing murders that have targeted prostitues. Initially a very tough situation, Steve and their protected witness eventually form some mutual understanding and a friendship. Thier interaction is well done, and not only makes the episode both more tense and melancholy, but also gives us some limited information about how Steve sees the world and why he became a cop.
~ View screencaps

3. 45 Minutes from Home
This episode feels like it hardly features our two main cop characters at all, with most of the focus being put on a convention-goer who is led to believe he has murdered a young girl. William Windom plays the desperation and grief excellently, and it's a very affecting story.

4. Whose Little Boy Are You?
Mike and Steve are stonewalled by the parents of a boy whose bedroom was broken into. Their job to catch the criminal who has an apparent interest in the kid is slowed by the parents desperation that they not delve into their past. An unremarkable but decent episode, with sympathetic portrayal of a AWOL Vietnam vet and a climax where Mike attempts to get through to him verbally.

5. Tower Beyond Tragedy
Edward Mulhare takes a very creepy turn as the ageing, divorced aristocrat who cannot cope with the approach of old-age and death. Steve and Mike follow his trail as he fixates on escort service agencies' young girls and recreates them into his wife as she was when they were younger. However, his charming attitude finally turns into lethal obsession, and when the girls start to realise, they are already doomed.

6. Hall of Mirrors
Some interesting characteristics of our guys are confronted in this episode. Jim Martin, an apparently very prejudiced cop, works with Mike until Mike hurts his ankle and is forced to take sick leave for a while. Steve pairs with Martin, and we see him struggling to maintain decorum in the face of his temporary partners' obvious racial hatred. What with Steve taking the lead and fighting to keep the case on the rails, and Mike failing miserably to stay at home and not get involved, this one is fun to watch!

An excellent episode, with Mike and the police frozen in a standoff against a group of political protestors holding Steve and three other civilians hostage on a boat at the docks.

And plus, this episode wins for mentioning Buck Rogers!

MOVIES

Back to The Streets of San Francisco (1991)
Mike Stone, now a Captain of SFPD's Homicide, is joined by two young officers who are rising stars on the police force and candidates for the vacant position of Lieutenant: David O'Connor, well-respected, bright and Stone's favoured candidate for promotion, and Sarah Burns, a self-assured, competent officer who also has high aspirations. They are friendly competitors who both respect the law and will go to any extent to protect the citizens of San Francisco.

Jeannie Stone comes to visit her father just as his personal and professional life take tumultuous turns. When Stone's longtime friend and partner of many years, Steve Keller, is murdered, Stone goes back to the streets to find the killer. However, as one of San Francisco's top homicide detectives, Stone cannot ignore another deadly crime spree that is fast developing in his city. And there is still a decision to be made concerning the promotion to the position of Lieutenant.
