Burt Reynolds wild side.
12 February 2003 | by (Metairie,Louisiana) – See all my reviews

I don't know why this show did'nt last. It had all the elements of a good show. It had action, suspence, and humor. Burt Reynolds was incredibly charming in this role, has private eye B.L. Stryker. this show also had a beautiful setting in Palm Beach. Ozzie Davis is also good has Oz Jackson B.L.'s boxing buddy.
