Storyline

Maxwell Beckett worked for Scotland Yard as a researcher. Today is an author of mystery novels living in San Francisco. Somehow everyone believes that he was an Inspector, so that's what they call him. And it seems that he has been going through a slump. It seems that his books don't have the same spark that they had before. While he struggles to regain his form, Nikki Page a reporter, who is assigned to do mundane jobs, would like to be taken seriously. So, whenever there's a mystery, she turns to Max to help in solving it, thinking it would make a good story. Max thinks Nikki's a nuisance, but hoping that their snooping around would be good material for his next novel goes along. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Great entertainment!
12 August 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The Equalizer becomes a whining thinker! Woodward plays a writer whose publisher complain that his latest works lack grit. A reporter goes to him to ask his help for solving crimes, hoping it will make him recapture his "grit" in writing. Lots of fun situations, specially one episode where Woodward plays the sarcastic butler to a rich matron. The crime resolutions are well-done and it's just fun to see this old geezer go after the bad guys without the need for guns or fisticuffs. Great show!
