Harmless, Amusing show, Cazenove was Excellent
19 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Seeking to recapture the feel of the screwball comedies of the thirties, Christopher Cazenove had just departed Dynasty as John Forsythe's brother, and Margaret Whitten had been in the critically acclaimed but hardly watched Hometime. They were brought together here as Micheal and Louisa, bickering, flirting and involved in crimes. Shows would be spoofed, mad-cap, wild chases would occur, campiness abounded. Was it Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd on Moonlighting? One would think so, but Cazenove and Whitten gave it a Californian or even European feel. Cazenove could outdo all for timing, Whitten just rode along and set him up and sounded off of him. Ernie Sabella, who would do the voice of the warthog in Lion King, was a series regular, and Sarah Douglas and Tim Roth (even tho he seems to be uncredited) both would appear in episodes as killers; Roth having virtually no lines in his appearance. Airing in 1989, the show at best only had about six episodes. They were entertaining. It would be great to see them again sometime.
