Kick ass show holmes

HBO had many great shows on in the mid eighties that I watched religiously. Encyclopedia Brown was my favorite book series as a kid and I loved the fact it translated well into television. The basic premise was a 10 year old kid that solved crimes amongst the people in his town. It was perfect for that point in time when HBO really cared about the younger viewers. They don't have as much family oriented programming as they once did.
