Storyline

Jack and David are two college students who work for a bail bondsman to earn some extra cash. Their boss Oscar sometimes sends them on some pretty weird assignments. And when he sends them on what he says is a simple assignment, something happens that has them in deep trouble and they have to resort to their wits to get out of it. Later Oscar sold his business to ex-cop Tom Bannon, who at first didn't want the boys but when they showed how skillful they are, he kept them on. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Short lived series
10 March 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This show was on NBC friday nights along with the another new show "the Master" staring Lee VanCleef and "a" VanPatten, and "The New Show" from SNL producer Lorne Michaels. The series starred Bruce greenwood, and J.T. Terlesky (now going by John Terlesky). They were a couple of college guys getting some extra cash by doing the dirty work, the running around (I.E. "Legmen"), for a private investigator, and getting into trouble and adventures along the way. Overall a fun little show, but it didn't do well enough in the ratings to last very long (maybe a half-dozen aired episodes).

The same can be said for it's partners in that NBC friday night slate, none of which lasted very long. I don't think this show has seen the light of day since it's cancellation, unlike "The Master" which gained infamy as the target of jokes on a segment of "Mystery Science Theater" when it was cut into a feature length object of ridicule. It was probably a good thing for Greenwood this series didn't fly, since he would later show up in more serious roles such as a series regular on St. Elsewhere, and has recently been featured in a few high profile motion pictures, such a s "Double jeapordy", and "Thirteen Days"
