When corruption charges strip him of his job, his family and his pride, former cop Mike Olshansky forges a new identity as a Philadelphia cab driver, patrolling the city as a roving vigilante who works with local police.
Hideous dog of a sitcom that lasted basically no time on CBS before it was yanked due to invisible ratings on the Nielsen Scale. Three losers (led by Adam Arkin) leave their suburban lives to run a beach resort where surfing and hot women in bikinis are the calling cards. The series suffered from stupid situations and ideas that seemed lost on the early-1990s viewing crowed. Good television actors like Kurtwood Smith, Jane Kaczmarek and David Morse all could not make up for a show that just never found itself (I do not think there was ever a reputable concept here to start with). Total disgust by big executives at CBS and total ignorance by the viewing public would mercifully give "Big Wave Dave's" a burial at sea. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
