Great attention to detail, 17 November 2002
Author: dJohnActor from West Palm Beach, FL

This short-lived series (6 episodes shot, only 4 aired in the US) is meticulous on detail. Rick's Cafe and the Blue Parrot are recreated to a tee at the Burbank Studios. The supporting cast is superb and the production crew are consumate professionals rich in the history of filmmaking: Ralph Senensky is a true actors' director with over 40 years experience in television directing (from Dr. Kildare to Hart to Hart). Joe Biroc is legendary as cinematographer (remember It's a Wonderful Life)? And "Shotgun" as makeup artist rounded out a consummate filmmaking team.
