Just before this show premiered on September 20, 1978, Robert Urich briefly appeared (in a backdoor pilot) as Dan Tanna at the end of Charlie's Angels (1976) season three, episode one, "Angels in Vegas". Supposedly, Dan Tanna was a friend of Charlie and Bosley. See more »
I am very surprised that there are not several comments already on here about this show! Vega$ is one of the many, many, many Spelling Drama's. I don't know what it is with him, but the magic he makes when he creates a show is incredible! This particular show had most of what the rest of his hits & non-hit shows have...Style! Its simple, take a detective in Nevada, all the casinos, showgirls, the bad guys, & the late70's early 80's & you have Vega$. The show lacked in speed. It ran dry often. All & all though, it is a fun show. I look at it now & compare Vega$ to Vegas now. Anytime it airs give it a try. 1-10 (7)
