Private detective Rick Tucker (Tim Matheson) is married to beautiful young witch Amanda (Catherine Hicks). They live in palatial house in Laurel Canyon and they are partners in a Los Angeles private investigation firm. He has the training to be a P.I. but she has certain abilities, unpredictable and erratic though they may be, that give them an added edge on competitors.

Amanda dreams about three strangulation murders of married women committed in elevators of high-rise apartment buildings across the city by a mysterious psycho (Ted Danson). She also receives a telepathic message from her soothsayer cat Dickens saying that there has been a fourth murder and that she and Rick will soon be involved.

A woman soon hires the detectives to investigate the death of her sister in one of the murders. She suspects her brother-in-law Frank (Christopher Pennock) - an abusive construction worker. Amanda receives impressions during the course of their investigation but she does not know what they mean together or separately. Rick tries to make sense of them using judgement his experience and training have honed.

Their combined talents direct them to look into a 'high tech' (computer & video - this was the early 1980s) dating service they think was connected to the murders.

A romance/adventure of the kind begun by 'The Thin Man' series of movies in the 1930s combined with the supernatural theme of the wife being a witch like in 'Bewitched' is an appealing premise in my view and could have been a ratings winner. The cast is also very likable. But it probably seemed too implausible to survive as a series.
