Great show, shame it was canned.
10 February 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I agree entirely with the previous comment. I'm in the UK, and only have the standard 'terrestrial' TV service (I refuse to pay extra for satellite), so I guess it wasn't until long after the show was axed that I first saw it, and unfortunately it's never been repeated as far as I know here in the UK on terrestrial TV. This WAS an excellent series, and very much deserved a far longer run. There was precious little 'fresh' shows around when this came out, and I guess it was before its time. The feisty character played by Han, and Segal's laid back Murphy sparked off one another in a delightful and always entertaining way. Cohabiting a cavernous apartment, which appeared to be an entire floor of a warehouse, Han was frequently drawn in to Murphy's investigations, whether she wanted to be or not. Catch if you can.
