Better than Miami Vice...
17 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I personally loved this show as a high schooler. I've spent the last week searching the internet to try and come up with the name of the show. I thought it was a pretty cool show at the time but short lived. I remember that it was a Phil Collins song that was the theme. If anyone remembers the theme song please post it. It was definitely funnier than Miami Vice. At the time, mid eighties, you either loved Miami Vice or hated it. I could not stand it but couldn't miss The Insiders. I wonder what Stoney Jackson is doing these days? Wish I could purchase the shows somewhere, if anyone knows if this show is available please post it in the comments.
