I mostly know Kove from the flash of hairy chest in the opening credits from Cagney and Lacey. I was too young to watch the show when it was on, I was usually being sent to bed when my mom sat down to watch. I remember however, enjoying those brief few seconds of Kove's chest before heading off to dreamland.Code R (1977)
Year later, I saw a few episodes of the show in repeats. Cagney & Lacey was definitely a female driven show. It was interesting to look back at the role reversal with Kove's character. Most male driven shows of the 80's had a female cast member who was sexualized, and put in a bathing suit for the opening credits. In Cagney & Lacey, it was Kove's character that was that was often shown shirtless and sexualized. Not a difficult task given the actor's sex appeal.
