Deeply missed

I love(d) this show so much and find it really sad that it only ran for such a short period. Everything about the show was just... cool... but without feeling forced. (i.e., not a Charlie's Angels "cool").

One of the only good Australian TV shows, ever.

This is one funky show

Elvis shows that it is hip to be moral as he rips into the bad guys and stands up for the underdog. The show has a swaggering energy and I wish they had made more than 2 series.

Quirky and Good non-Police crime drama

Certainly when this show first aired on Australian TV, it was unique as a Ex-Police officer, turned Dry-Cleaner / Private investigator (sort-of, mostly) called Elvis, having an off-sider, Ruben, with Tourette syndrome, and a frustrated assistant Stella, who is trying to run the Dry-Cleaning business despite Elvis' disruptive activities.

Marcus Graham playing Elvis in the central role carried the series very well, and while the series lifespan was short at 26 episodes, a short series usually means the episode plots are kept fairly unique and fresh.

Once of the key factors in the show's enjoyment for me was Travis McMahon's execution of Ruben's condition, the timing and nature of his "tics" being played for light comic relief in tense situations, not to belittle the condition though.

A good series, that I remember enjoying during it's initial broadcast, and enjoying again on a DVD release, now over a decade later.

There is something about this show that is different from your usual shows involving cops. Elvis McGuiness is an ex cop for one, but the plots pull you in and Elvis' character makes you want to go along for the ride.
