Retired, witty, dapper Colonel Humphrey Flack and his partner in crime, Uthas P. Garvey, also known as Patsy, team up to play modern-day Robin Hoods around the world. Conning the con men wherever they find them, the two men change their clever tactics as often as they change locales, giving their proceeds to the needy but retaining a percentage for themselves, of course, to "cover expenses." Written by Tim's TV Showcase,

One of my all-time favorite TV shows.
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was thrilled to learn of the existence of so I could look for the wonderful TV show I watched and LOVED when I was a lot younger. For over 40 years now I've been asking people if they'd ever seen it or heard of it. No one had. I was beginning to think I had imagined the whole thing. This sounds EXACTLY like the show I loved with the only glitch being that where I grew up (Princeton, NJ) it was called "The Impostors". I'm sure it's the same show. Is there any way of getting copies of it? I would love to see it again! If anyone does know how to do that, please post that information. I agree that the level of wit and intelligence of shows like that are rarely seen on TV these days.And I am also happy to see the dozens of movies Alan Mowbray has appeared in because I bet they are all quirky and fun.
