Storyline

19th-century government agent and master of disguise Jeff Cable operates out of a secret room in a San Francisco casino owned by his best pal Cash Conover. Conover is sort of a dandy, and would rather avoid trouble at all costs, but Cable's persuasiveness coupled with Cash's sense of duty and a weakness for the fairer sex shared by both men usually leads them into dangerous missions.

Trivia

This was the first program from Paramount Television to lead in to ABC's incarnation of "Monday Night Football", something done more successfully by "MacGyver" years later. Paramount also produced "Call to Glory", "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" and "The Marshal" which all had one-season turns leading into MNF. See more »

Fair Imitation of Wild Wild West
9 May 2002 | by Dvd AvinsSee all my reviews

The plots had a similar complexity to the wonderful Robert Conrad/Ross Martin series Wild Wild West, and the characters are rather similar, though their attributes were combined and scrambled into the two new characters. Here Shatner is the disguise master, but is also the nominal lead, while disguse-master Martin played second fiddle to Conrad 10 years earlier.

Unfortunately, the intelligence (or rather, attention) of the audience had so deteriorated over the previous decade that this show was promptly canceled because the plots were deemed too complex.

If you've never seen Wild Wild West, see that instead. If you've seen that already and you're willing to put up with Shatner, then this can scratch your itch.
