Storyline

Brian Devlin was a military intelligence agent. Years ago he had an affair with a woman named Nicole Corsello. He was unaware that she was pregnant with his child. 28 years later, his son, Nick Corsello, sought him out. Brian's now a wealthy and affluent man, and Nick is a struggling private investigator. While Brian doesn't want to, he occasionally gets involved with one of his cases or has to bail him out cause of his inexperience. Nick at first resented Brian cause he felt that he deserted him but eventually they developed a bond or connection between each other. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

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.
