Remy tries to help out Frank, an old piano-playing friend whom has a crush on a young mobster's girlfriend, and when he's accused of murdering the thug, Remy must go against all laws of ethics to try...
I loved this show and was so disappointed when it was canceled. On the other hand, I recall that after the first season they replaced the actress who plays Anne Osborne and suddenly the show was crap anyway. Not that Tony Crane wasn't sexy as hell as Remy McSwain, he was the reason I watched the show, but somehow it all fell apart without Susan Walters. She was sexy, older then Remy, cool, sophisticated, and just restrained enough, not cold like Scully was to Maulder during most of the X-Files, which was very frustrating for me to watch for that reason. Remy McSwain was sexy and loved to flirt with DA Anne Osbourne. Looking at his picture, its hard to believe he was really all that, but believe me, Tony Crane was such a dreamboat in this show. Also, the setting of New Orleans is of course very romantic. I still miss the show and although my favorites are currently all the "Law & Order" shows (especially Criminal Intent with that hunk Vincent D'Onofrio), the void left by "The Big Easy" has yet to be filled. I was dumbfounded when it was canceled and still don't understand how this show wasn't the most popular thing that ever happened to t.v.
