18 January 2003 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

This was a terrific series of a con man & a businessman who get together as PI's. A wonderful plotline which continued into a great though short lived series, unfortunately. As far as I know this has not aired since the invention of VCR's, or at least I should say since most owned one & blank tapes were widely available. Isn't it a shame that so many real good series as this one were short lived. To name a few (The Outlaws, Airwolf, even Star Trek TOS & look what it started). What's wrong with those guys in Hollywood anyway....
