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
I well remember that this show premiered on Friday 2 July 1992 just after seven p.m. on SABC TV 1. During those days, we still had plentiful access to good ol' American entertainment, nowadays it is mostly just local junk filling the airwaves.
I distinctly remember reading that this show was cancelled because Connie Selleca was a bit too much like her character. But she was very watchable, and even though I found some episodes less appealing glamor-wise, I'd still dearly love to see this again. Downloaded promo, intro and tiny snippets, but tried using Wikipedia episode information to search for and get to full episodes, but there doesn't seem to be any. Scoured for it on Amazon too, but no luck besides books that mention it.
For the reviewer looking for the song, find the intro on WapNext. There is more than one option, scroll down a bit further, the first one I encountered had very poor image quality. The second is perfect, but you will just be left out in the cold when it ends with no episode tagged onto it. How sad!
July - Aug 1992 is a very long time ago, and, as usual, I have just a vague memory of this. Like I said, some episodes were less attractive to me, hence my reduced rating, but this had a whole lot of great potential!
Very big sentimental value to me to have seen the intro again. Pardon this shoddy review, I am obliged to say something about the stuff I'm trying to recapture on DVD. Little chance here, though...
