great serie
2 January 2000 | by (NY U.S) – See all my reviews

It was a great serie it came out begining of the 80's. Rock Hudson and Jack scalia played father-son detectives. There was a lot action and comedy in the series. I remember one praticular episode which devlins try to investigate father of a lady martial arts expert It was really good episode. I watched devlin connection when I was a kid since that tim I have been trying to find devlin connection's video cassettes but I better tell it is really hard to find there is not any information even in the net. So, this detective series was one of the best and I hope I can find its copies.
