McCloud,played by Dennis Weaver, was a marshall from New Mexico who was sent to New York for special training. Solving mysteries is not his only problem: his boss, played by J.D. Cannon,is a nightmare. McCloud has unusual techniques for catching criminals, such as lassoing them on horseback and beating them up on roofs of moving vehicles. My favourite episode of McCloud was "The Colorado Capers." McCloud teams up with a small town deputy, played by John Denver, to catch a gang of beef rustlers.
