Although McMillan and Wife had been introduced as a two-hour TV movie, Once Upon a Dead Man, on September 17, 1971, the series proper did not get underway under 12 days later, as one of the rotating components (along with McCloud and Columbo) of The NBC Mystery Movie. Having long resisted any sort of TV-series commitments, Rock Hudson nonetheless looks quite at home in the role of San Francisco police commissioner Stewart "Mac" McMillan, as does Susan Saint James as Mac's insatiably curious young wife, Sally. In the first of the seven 90-minute season one episodes, "Murder in the Barrel," Sally has trouble convincing the cops that she has found a dead body in a barrel full of crockery while moving into the MacMillan's luxurious new home. The next episode, "The Easter Sunday Murder Case," involves Mac and Sally in a double kidnapping -- with one of the victims being a pampered pet dog! In "Husbands, Wives and Killers," the MacMillans vainly try to prevent the theft of a priceless necklace during a masquerade ball. A clue to a crime is found stuffed inside a football in "Death is a Seven-Point Favorite." Sally is targeted for extermination by a jewel thief who thinks she "knows too much" in "The Face of Murder." While housekeeper Mildred (Nancy Walker) is away, the McMillans are sealed inside their own booby-trapped house in "'Til Death Do Us Part." And in the season's final offering, "An Elementary Case of Murder," the McMillans are swept up into a homicide investigation by an old flame. Hal Erickson, Rovi
