Something VERY familiar about this wonderful program
Other have mentioned some of the merits of this witty, often funny mystery. It isn't deep, dark and gut wrenching. It IS light, well written and has a fine cast.
But, there is something seriously familiar about the cast and characters. Here's what I mean.
There is the (relatively) handsome male lead and the gorgeous female lead. They are backed up by a long-haired (shaggy) male who provides a lot of the comic relief and a short, dark- haired, bookish, glasses-wearing, female. The team travel around in a large van solving mysterious deaths in out-of-the-way places.
The only thing missing is the dog.
Freddie, Daphnie, Shaggy and Velma?
No... there aren't ghosts and glowing, algae-covered sea Captains rattling chains, but I would bet a bucket of Scooby snacks that the people who created and cast this fun show are real fans of Scooby Do, Where Are You?
And, if you watch these shows with that in mind, it becomes even more entertaining.
