Short But Really Good Series; Call it a Mini-Series
17 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cagney and Lacy?! Jessica Walter easily acts better than those two. This series wasn't given a chance. Apparently in 1974 TV wasn't ready for a Female Chief of Detectives in a major city. This is one of many series that I thought was great but didn't last, and this one hardly lasted at all. He and She! East Side, West Side! They stuck with Seinfeld and look what happened. I'll fill this out so it has enough lines to be posted. I'll fill up the rest of the review to reach ten (10) lines. This is a test to see if IMDb actually looks or reviews any of their reviews. I think this is the tenth (10th) line so I'll see if it works. I goofed. This is the tenth (10th) line so maybe this will be posted. Why do you need 10 lines here but not in the other comment section?
