When I can I love watching the re-runs in syndication, even if I have seen it a 100 times. They always get their man they are looking for or the bad always gets what is coming for him/her.Terrific acting by all the cast, even if the are second rate. The director(s) know what to do to this series to make it what it has become. It makes me sad that 3 of the main people have passed on since the show's departure.
