Ever see La Femme Nikita? It’s about a woman who loses her previous identity and goes to work for a crimefighting organization. Okay, make Nikita a man, give him a daughter, and you’ve got Cobra. Cobra was shot in the face and left for dead. A crime-fighting organization put the pieces back together and gave him a job as an operative. This show was like the ten thousand other syndicated “action” shows of the nineties, where you had a stubble-shaven hero working for some nondescript organization against generic “evil.”

Not much of a Single Dad focus on this show.
