Storyline

A "Twin Peaks"-like series. "Maximum Bob" is an ultra right-wing conservative judge in Florida who has a psychic ex-marine show mermaid for a wife. The sheriff is a widower who ballroom dances. The public defender is a spitfire from Miami. And somehow, there is a family of truly odd individuals, all with the same type of glasses. The jury's out on the sanity level, but it is based on Elmore Leonard, after all. Written by B.H. Yasuda <b_yasuda@hotmail.com>

I have very much enjoyed this well written, well acted, TV series.
6 November 1998 | by (San Mateo, California) – See all my reviews

It appears this TV series has been taken off the air as I have seen neither an episode nor a promotional spot for the series in the past several weeks. Hopefully it is because they are busy filming several more episodes and intend to bring it back in a big way.

It's one of the first series since Northern Exposure that has some intellectual qualities to it and is not just a bunch of buffoons reading dog tired lines that should have been put out to pasture long ago along with their writers. It seems all and any of the television being offered to us is exactly the same and only the faces and the locations have been changed to protect the writers and the producers and maybe even the Networks.

People say that education is lagging in this country. Well I agree; and if we are now clearly the Television Generation then the programs we offer should have some content that at least makes a person think a little bit and/or generates some sort of mental stimulation.

Maximum Bob definitely does that; let's get it back on the air.
