Love Front Page Detective and Edmund Lowe

I fell upon this series in a box set on Detectives. After spending a year or so watching this genre, and other genres made for TV, I must say that Edmund Lowe and this Front Page Detective is very entertaining. We have to stop watching these shows just to laugh at errors and bad acting. These shows were produced, I am sure, with pleasure. Not to be taken seriously. Tongue in cheek, all for a quick espresso cup of pleasure. Often the dialogues are superb. The wit is non-stop. Stereotypes purposely laughable. I enjoy the film noir lighting, that is clearly theatrical and kitsch. But it is such fun to watch at. When we approach older TV shows, we must be totally naive and open. Expecting nothing, and be filled with nothing than a sense of self-ignorance. Forgetting the violence and vulgarity modern TV have come to represent as real and normal. And I do not wish to express here a moral judgment. It is not about morality, it is about our everyday realities and simple people, good and bad. Like Chase says: "Crazy, yes like Columbus. And look at what he found."
