This was an anthology series that presented a different story and different set of characters on each episode. It ran from 1954 to 1958 and featured Casino Royale of James Bond fame that lead to a feature film of the same name.
Lieutenant George Kirby is a New York City detective whose jurisdiction appeards to cover a wide area. Whether it's murderers or thieves he approaches every situation prepared to deal violently with the criminals.
Always liked Alan Hale Jnr. and in this, his first TV series he doesn't disappoint, playing his usual jovial, laughing self, it's a fun husband/wife adventure, not too serious, and although he's big enough to handle trouble if need be, Hale prefers to talk his way out of situations if he can. Lots of exotic locales, Hollywood back lot style, the charisma between Alan and Randy Stuart is good, not forced in any way and you could imagine them as a real married couple, which is a large part of the charm of these kind of shows.It's a shame this show didn't last beyond it's 26 episodes, and also that only 8 seem to have survived for DVD release.
