Great TV movie/pilot
10 January 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I think the previous poster is a little confused about the movie he is reviewing. This one is the pilot for the TV series "Fitz & Bones" starring Tom and Dick Smothers as reporters for a local TV station in San Francisco. I remember really loving this movie and the subsequent series although it wasn't on the air for very long. I hope at least this movie, from producer Glen Larson ("Knight Rider," "Quincy, M.E.") shows up in syndication.
