Stylish Film Noir Series - That Failed

8/10
Author: spiritof67 from United States
8 September 2017

There haven't been many attempts at making a film noir TV show in recent history, and I mean in the last 30 years. The Mike Hammer series with Stacy Keach was an attempt but went thin on the noir aspects. This series didn't. Moody, jazz-themed with the right style and tempo, it was a genuine shot at TV noir...which obviously wasn't what the network was willing to sell, and they didn't.

If you can find a way, see it. There will likely as not never be another one like it, since no one under 50 will be willing to say they have seen a film noir, much less one on TV.
