ABC really wanted this series to work, so much so they kept changing int's format trying to find an audience. When the series premiered it's star was a cop unlike any seen on American Television. Lt. Ohara was a Japanese-American ppoliceman in L.A. who almost never used a gun, preferred patience and persuasion to violence, and didn't even drive a car. A widower, he had a traditional shrine in his home, belived in daily meditation, and was always ready with a sage saying like "When the going gets tough, the wise get help !" His fellow officers were skeptical, but Ohara's patient methods worked most of the time, and when they didn't, he could use martial arts. Ohara's friend Gussie ran the White Orchid Restaurant where the Lieutenant could often be found when not on duty.
In the fall of 1987 the format was changed and the entire cast, with the exception of Pat Morita, was dropped. Ohara was assigned to a federal task force headed by a determined lady D.A. Teresa Storm, and his new partner was a brash young officer named Shaver. Though still contemplative, Ohara had suddenly become a more conventional cop. He now used a gun & drove his own car, though when on assignment Shaver did the driving in his aging convertable.
After becoming frustrated by law enforcement system's bureaucracy, resulting in the murder of a close friend, The Lieutenant and his partner both resigned from the force and became private eyes. This was the final change, and the series was cancelled.
It was actually a rather good, unusual cop series that couldn't survive the network or itself !!
