Calling All Dan Tana Fans..................
2 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show! VEGAS was one of the coolest detective shows on television and I've been waiting for it to arrive on DVD. So, how come there are other less popular detective show being released while VEGAS seems to have fallen through the abyss??? This "hot" show had everything: suspense,drama,a really "hot" car, an even "hotter" P.I., (uh,detective), great stories, interesting guest stars, and even a great theme song. Oh, and did I already mention that Dan Tana was HOT? Robert Urich (God bless him) was great as Spenser (for hire) and also as officer Street (on SWAT), but he will probably be most remembered for his smart, sexy, charismatic role as private detective Dan Tana. O.K. guys....let's let the studio know that we're waiting............
