... not on VHS, DVD, or even on youtube can you find a trace of this sitcom. It was a summer show that ran on Showtime in 1987 and it's the first time I ever recall seeing Bill Maher on TV. In this show he's half of a buddy private detective team, although they don't spend much time solving mysteries. Instead the two always wound up in a theatre of the absurd combined with lots and lots of girls. Maher is the smarter detective to Tommy Hinkley's ... well...less intelligent half of the duo. The third main member of the cast was a tall brunette who appeared to be in her mid to late 30's at the time and was Maher's character's pseudo love interest. I think her character's name was Maggie and she was also in the Showtime series "Brothers". Maggie ran a restaurant and a very active love life. Maher was playing a guy much older than he actually was - he was 31 and playing a guy in his late 30's - because he and Maggie were always reminiscing about the 1960's. It had lots of lowbrow humor, and it must not have done that well in the ratings because it only ran a dozen or so episodes and was not renewed.

I'm just giving it a 6 for its personal nostalgia value to me. Like the episode in season one of the Beverly Hillbillies where Robert Osborne sees Granny carrying around canisters of old silent movies when she is moving to Beverly Hills and exclaims - "I don't understand. What would anyone want with a bunch of old movies?", it's only a curiosity because of where "they" are now.
