Dan August Arizona Daily Star 25 septembre 1970
"Dan August" also made its debut Wednesday night. Although the opener' wasn't something that would send you off shouting hosannas, it showed enough promise to indicate that it should ( with patience from ABC) turn into a long-running hit. To begin with, "Dan August" has style and a sure-handed touch thanks to produ cer Quinn Martin. It has talent and good looks thanks to Burt Reynolds. And it has a fine supporting cast thanks to Norman Fell, Richard Anderson and Ned Romero. There is also an appreciated touch of authenticity in "Dan August." Believe it or not, the night scenes were actually filmed at night. And even more remarkable is the fact that Dan August is not protrayed as a brilliant one-man-against-crime machine. For example, when the ballistics expert was describ-bing the murder weapon to him, August admitted that he was not familiar with the gun. Another nice little touch seldom seen in similar shows. But even more important to the success of the new program is the manner in which Burt Reynolds plays Dan August. Reynolds has matured into a fine, very capable actor and his skill is obvious in every scene. And the fact that he is, beyond doubt, the best looking of all the detectives currently seen in television won't hurt, either. .
