Storyline

Miles Banyon was a tough but honest private detective operating out of Los Angeles during the '30s. For $20 a day plus expenses, Banyon would take almost any case, ranging from missing persons to theft to murder. Since his office was located in the same building as Peggy Revere's secretarial school, Banyon found himself with a different pretty receptionist almost every week. His police contact was Sgt. McNeil. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Great detective, great show!
30 July 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This series, along with Quinn Martin's Manhunter, brought the viewers back to the Depression era. Manhunter focused mostly on chasing the bad guys you already met in the prologue, but Banyon gave us the poor, thinking detective, living by his wits and fists. Robert Forster was cool and the twists in the plots were great; the stories are even better than what Murder She Wrote had to offer. Banyon doesn't just fight; he investigates and solves the crimes, and solves it well. And those costumes! The 30's threads, not to mention the cars, the guns and the music! Short-lived as it may be, it's the best TV could offer back in the selfish 70's.
