McCloud

The BEST episodes of McCloud

Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!

A "fish-out-of-water" cop show about a New Mexico lawman assigned to a Manhattan precinct. There's a healthy dose of matchstick-chewing and down-home phrases, but McCloud is one sharp country slicker who teaches his city counterparts a thing or two about nailing bad guys.
