Too good. That's why it only lasted a season. My God, look at the players. Not a weak spot in the bunch. And, the writing! Fantastic. But, no trick guns, no canned laughter and no asinine sit skits. It was just too good. I believe I saw dang near every episode and loved each one. The players would change roles, Bobby Benson would be a drugged out drummer looking for a fix one week and then a Mexican fisherman who finds a big pearl. Even when the cast would shift into another completely different genre, they would shift around and support one another. One week Warren Stevens did a bit part as a night watchman and the next, he was a hired killer, then a soldier of fortune...as so on. This was undoubtedly some of the best theater ever presented on TV. Sadly, that's why is didn't go past one season...but, what a season!
