Storyline

In this detective series with a comical note, Glenn Hall runs an unconventional flashy Private Detective's agency in LA, and means business above all, never mind the rules if she can get around them. Although her ex, police Detective Greg McCormack, now has a dim view of her and her operations, his LAPD connection often come in handy. Investigator Manny Lott (not the only one) is young and charming enough to get where a regular P.I. wouldn't, but often wrestles with his sensitive conscience. The quite varied cases often lead to crime connections, so danger is on the lurk, and some clients are at least as shady as the suspects, partners etc. they want investigated. Written by KGF Vissers

Gina Gershon and Paula Marshall.....Enough Said.
27 September 1999 | by (Pullman, WA) – See all my reviews

This show has great potential. It can be fun and serious in the "dramedy" vein of Ally McBeal, but they need to scale back the V.I.P look slightly. The acting talent far surpasses anything on the latter show, especially Gershon and Marshall. I loved Paula Marshall on Cupid (a show which did not deserve the ax) and Gina Gershon is smoldering in everything. If David E. Kelley maintains his creative vision for the show (while not necessarily writing every episode) it should do well. I've heard this probably won't be the case, which would be a shame.
