Wanda Talbert is a New York con artist. After being caught by the NYPD, she agrees to help them nail a criminal. What they didn't tell her was that she would have to testify against him, and that will not take place for a few years, which means that she has to remain in custody till that day comes, which does make her happy, cause it means she would have to put her money making schemes or con games on hold. They then send her to Palm Springs where an ex federal marshall runs a security agency where she will work while hiding. Also accompanying her is Joey Paciorek, New York cop who has to protect her and make sure that she doesn't bolt. They pretend to be Cody and Dani Powell a couple, which is not going to be easy since both of them don't like each other. Written by
Let me till you, this one had a lot of bad luck. First it got canceled after only 13 episodes, and then I found nothing at the trivia section about the reason why they canceled it, and further than that I found no one at all wrote anything about it at the comment section like it didn't ever happen ?!!
Why is that ?!! It was a good, nice, and sexy one. Yes, the story wasn't that new but the plot was ! We've had this story so many times (a chased good one who is chasing the bad ones) and of course the original for it was the old TV hit (The Fugitive) from 1963 to 1967. Actually the makers of the American TV shows consumed it too many times in too many plots or forms such as : Hot Pursuit (1984), Renegade (1992), Vanishing Son (1995), 18 Wheels of Justice (2000). But as for P.S.I. Luv U (1991) the plot was so attractive, there was no violence in here just action comedy with a slight touch of another earlier original series like (Hotel) or maybe (The Love Boat), putting in mind that exquisite landscapes, females and the hot pace of that summery hotel. GOD that was good. Perhaps the most enjoyable one of its previous and next likes.
Not to forget the talents of (Bob Shayne). He was a main writer and a co-producer here. This man worked as a writer in other shows like : Simon & Simon, Murder She Wrote, Remington Steele, Magnum P.I, Hart to Hart.. I think my point is so obvious. And you'll be as sad as me when you know that he was a writer and producer of Cover Up (1984) which's another great canceled show !!
Although I'm not a big fan of (Connie Sellecca) but she was one persuasive reason to watch the show because her lively performance, sexual attraction, and her productive cemetery with (Greg Evigan), she was in here like that show itself : extraordinary. Even the (P.S.I. Luv U) theme song was so catchy beautiful !
I don't know why exactly this show had that kind of bad luck, and this kind of ignoring to the extent that my comment is the first one about it in 16 years !?? GUYS it wasn't by any chance that forgettable ??!
