After seven and a half minutes of opening titles montage (with theme music that sounds like the one from 'I Dream of Jeannie') and recaps of the pilot TV movie they finally got around to having an episode.

Truro County, Florida's crooked sheriff Titus Semple (Howard Duff) is busy collecting kickbacks from local criminals which include drug trafficker Lorca (Alejandro Rey). Soon after he has looked in on Lorca's operation to get his cut the place is cleaned out by thieves. Lorca thinks Titus tipped them off.

Fielding Carlyle (Mark Harmon) and his new bride Constance (Morgan Fairchild) are honeymooning in the Bahamas. They meet Nick (Joe Penny) and Terry (Judith Chapman) another handsome young couple who take them hostage aboard their yacht. They have been sent by Lorca.

Skipper Weldon (Woody Brown) - son of local town power baron Claude Weldon (Kevin McCarthy) is holed up boozing at the cabaret/brothel run by Lute Mae Sanders (Stella Stevens). Skipper's beautiful fiancé Annabelle perished in a mysterious fire at his father's paper mill.

Lane Ballou (Cristina Raines) works as a torch singer/hostess at Lute Mae's and continues to bond with wealthy playboy Sam Curtis (John Beck) who is back in town looking to buy land owned by Claude Weldon.

Goofy, pulp novel silliness with a talented and distinguished cast who deserved better.
