A nice memory.
22 February 2004 | by madsagittarianSee all my reviews

Back in the early 1980's, on Saturday mornings, CBC used to run

episodes of "Sgt. Preston of the Yukon", and this. "R.C.M.P." was a

crisply-shot, realistic crime drama which was also a total

antithesis to the usual creaky stagebound stuff that passed for

Canadian television programming back then.

The two leads of "R.C.M.P." was a variation on the classic pairing

of older, experienced slightly world-weary captain, with the

ambitious young rookie. But what made it special was the almost

documentary-like feel as they take steps to get their man. The

series was beautifully shot in black and white, and had an

authentic feel of time and space.

There are two episodes I remember. The first features the young

hotshot rookie going undercover to infiltrate the beatnik scene to

make a pot bust! In order to fit in, he even takes a crash course on

the slang terms that the kids used: "My old man, etc." In one

scene set in a bohemian cafe, some cute beatnik chick offers him

a pull on a joint , but he decides to stick to his black coffee. The

second features Jimmy Doohan (yes, Mr. Scott himself) as a

murderer who then tries to destroy the evidence of his misdoings

by spraying acid jets on the corpse!

"R.C.M.P." was a fascinating, intelligent and realistic series. I sure

hope someone resurrects this from the vault. It would be

interesting to see if it still holds up almost half a century later, and

I'm betting it would. Is anyone in TV-land listening?
