This was a great show! Why was it taken off the air?
1 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Mystery shows are always good. This show was one of the best. Just as Diagnosis Murder, and Murder She Wrote kept you guessing, so did this series. It had a great ensemble cast, with Bill Cosby in the lead. Cosby is good in anything he does, and this is no exception. I had heard when it went off the air, that someone had told Cosby that he should never have made a mystery series?!? Shame on them! Just like all the great crime/mystery dramas of the 70's, if they brought it back tomorrow, I'd definitely watch it, just as I had watched every episode back then. Bravo to all the cast on a great ensemble, and definitely an all-around great show!
