Tense, thrilling, wide and unforgettable ride, lead by the star Burt Reynolds!!!
Returning to television, the vehicle that made his way ahead for the
movies, the success and the stardom, Burt Reynolds plays the main character
in a series loaded with tension and action, made in the measure for the
star. Reynolds interprets B.L. Striker, a cynic and charming detective, who
follows the Humphrey Bogart style, who lives his adventures in Miami,
Florida, beside two inseparable friends: Kimberly (interpreted by the young
actress Kristy Swanson), a rich, beautiful and young girl and Oz (Ossie
Davis). Together, they solve the riskiest cases. The series is very well
produced (one of its producers is the star Tom Selleck) and the creator of
the stories knows how to balance the moments of action and mystery with a
delicious and frank humor. Burt Reynolds' acting is always excellent and
powerful, in which he shows all his charm and elegance, the direction of
each episode it is always in the hands of an expert and competent film
director, and the picture is exquisite, revealing without shyness the hot
and treacherous climate of Florida. The seriate always counts with the
participation of consecrated stars, like Ricardo Montalban, Jerry Reed and
Loni Anderson, just to mention a few..." B.L. Striker " is already one of
the best television series done, a delicious show, stuffed with adventures
and unforgettable moments, almost everyone of them written by Christopher
Crowe (the same author of the script of the film " Fear "), a production
above the average!after "Boogie Nights", Burt Reynolds is taking advantage
of his comeback and, before working in its next projects for the cinema,
like " Pups ", Stringer " and the so awaited "Waterproof" ",he is revisiting
the television and to direct and star " Hard Time ", a touching, tense and
violent crime- dramas".So much as in the movies as in television, Burt
Reynolds always offers us his greatests performances, his authority, his
brilliant charm, softly witty-ease...
