Burt Reynolds wild side., 12 February 2003
Author: mack3175 from Metairie, Louisiana

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.
