Goodnatured and very funny
1 April 2017 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Loved this series as a kid : Tony Curtis is perfect as the laid-back but very sympathico conman McCoy who always needs a lot of money to support his expensive lifestyle. His cons are on the level of "The Sting" : very complex, involving many people and always on the brink of failure.

Only 5 episodes were produced which is bit of pity but there is the bonus they are all very well made, cleverly written and have a great supporting cast. Among the directors there is the seasoned veteran Richard Quine (Bell Book and Candle, Operation Mad Ball, How to murder your wife,etc...) and Stan Dragoti (who would go on to make comedy box office hits as "Mr Mom" and "Love at first bite").

Not sure if a box-set is available or you can download them somewhere but if you can you won't regret it.
