Yes, it's true that NBC once aired a weekly television series titled DAVID CASSIDY--MAN UNDERCOVER. Asking audiences to accept former PARTRIDGE FAMILY heartthrob Cassidy as a tough undercover police detective is difficult enough, but to then saddle the show with one of the most ludicrous titles in TV history...well, this show was doomed from the start.
Not helping matters was the opening title sequence, which couldn't possibly be duller. The theme song, performed by Cassidy and featuring laughable lyrics like "Love is a child/Warm like her smile/But you leave it behind/And in too short a time you'll find/You're undercover," was the final nail. Watch it and try not to crack up.
