Susan Saint James,
Former bunco detective Frank MacBride joins forces with a con artist he once sent to jail, Pete Ryan, to operate their own private detective agency. Most of their cases involve running cons on the bad guys in order to trick them into surrendering or revealing the whereabouts of the stolen loot, jewels, etc. Maggie was their cute receptionist, and wacky restauranteur Malcolm, whose mastery of disguise often came in handy in helping MacBride and Ryan on their cases, provided the comic relief.

The series actually had three theme songs. But two of them are only rarely heard. The series opened with a Stu Phillips theme which was quickly yanked, although it continued as background music at the end of many shows. About eight shows into the second season, Ed Sauter wrote a theme that appeared exactly once. For all other episodes, first-season executive producer Glen A. Larson wrote the theme (his first official theme song, not counting "McCloud" which is not credited to anyone). See more »
This was a pretty good detective show. I love the fact that this is one of those hour dramas that really didn't take itself seriously as most detective shows did. This show and "The Rockford Files" had a knack for poking fun at the detective genre. Also, Charlie Callas helped increase the fun factor, especially when Pete and Mac moved their office to the room above Malcolm's restaurant. This is definitely an underrated show.
