I also can't figure out why this show didn't make it. It was a hit when I was in 7th grade with my peer group.
Show had a great theme song.
Typical Quinn Martin production, based on the technical architecture of his other shows (The Fugitive) First time I had seen Leslie Nielsen in a straight dramatic role since Forbidden Planet and 1 appearance on the Untouchables. Who would have guessed his greatest success would have come in comedy? John Beradino also did a good job; he was another Untouchables alum, having starred in a couple of episodes.
Maybe it's time to get this one on DVD.
