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.

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...
