Bobby Hill rides along with Pete Malloy!
17 February 2013 | by Henry_Framus_ValentineSee all my reviews

Fans of both Hill Street Blues and Adam-12 will get a kick out of seeing Mike Warren (Hill Street's Bobby Hill) as an enthusiastic rookie riding shotgun with Pete Malloy while Jim Reed is on an undercover caper. Ten years later, Warren, by then a seasoned cop, would ride shotgun with Charles Haid (as Andy Renko) for several seasons on Hill Street Blues.

This episode features Leslie Charleson, the "Pearl Drops" girl, as a strung-out pop singer being troubled by drug dealers. There is some real sexual tension between Charleson and McCord, though it's no spoiler to tell you that Reed keeps his hands to himself.

"The Princess and the Pig" is an exciting and suspenseful episode. Look for Bobby Troup in a sinister role.
