A detective in a wheelchair? You better believe it, and he’s damn fine too. A NBC show from the ’60s on this very cool subject is being brought back to life, with Blair Underwood putting on the wheels of ol’ Ironside.
The show has an awesome premise, one that way ahead of its time too: To show it’s possible to still get back to doing what you love doing despite a spinal cord injury. Detective Robert Ironside, who gets injured on the job (shot), goes back to work as a NYPD detective and the show portrays it as a completely normal thing. Love love love this
