Quotes

[first lines]
Harry Orwell: Where I wanted to be was in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Because that's where the circus was playing that day. I would have gotten in my car and gone there. It was only 970 miles, but the car was in Roy Bardello's garage for a new muffler and a starter motor rebuild. So I thought about that.

Julie Sommars plays Gertrude, who hires Harry O to find her brother Harold and clear his name. Before he went missing, Harold sent Gertrude one brand new left shoe. What follows is one of the funniest hours of TV I've ever seen. This is a drama show, but the dialogue between Harry and Gertrude is so unique and snappy. It is laugh out loud hilarious. Much of the humor comes from the fact that Gertrude is so quirky. She's also straight-laced in direct contrast to Harry who drinks and who she considers to be immoral, at least at first. Sommars is a fantastic guest star and this episode kicks off this first season of Harry O on a high note.

David Janssen plays Harry O as a very, very smart, introspective guy who doesn't miss anything. He is perfect in this role. This is a lovely script and there is a wonderful delivery of lines by Janssen and Sommars. Janssen's narration is a strong enhancement to the show.

This is one of those shows that I can watch again and again. If you're going to spend an hour in front of the TV, this is a good way to do it.
