It's a pity I missed this made-for-TV flick because I loved the 1998 film, an updating of the classic Sherlock Holmes versus Irene Adler tale, with Nero Wolfe and Archie thrown in. Daryl Zero was an interesting character: brilliant, neurotic and annoying. The mystery itself was pretty good, too.
I see from the cast list that there was no "Arlo" this time out, so I have to wonder whether he was replaced by "Jeff" or whether Zero was operating on his own. It would be a shame to eliminate him, since the interplay between the characters gave the original film a lot of its appeal and energy. Any protagonist who is not likable benefits from being buffered by more sympathetic representatives. Conan Doyle understood this, as did Rex Stout. I wonder whether Kasdan did.
If a DVD is too much to ask for, I'd settle for a reasonably well advertised cable run.
