N.Y.P.D. MARATHON
September 13, 2020  | By David Bianculli

Decades, 12:00 a.m. ET

 
The N.Y.P.D. marathon, showcasing this 1967-69 ABC series, continues on Decades today. And though the transfers they’re televising are washy and hardly of the highest quality, this on-location New York half-hour police drama was a clear improvement over the average cop shows of that period. There are at least two episodes to catch today: At 9:30 a.m. ET, “Encounter on a Rooftop,” in which one of the series’ lead characters, a Black detective played by Robert Hooks, is shot by an eager, and bigoted, young white cop. Then, at 11 a.m. ET, there’s “Deadly Circle of Violence,” featuring the first screen appearances by both Al Pacino and Jill Clayburgh. Jack Warden, Robert Converse and Hooks co-star.
