Storyline

Each week Matt Houston, a successful private investigator, takes on a new case. The cases usually involve murder, and always involve beautiful women in skimpy outfits. Drawing on his years of experience and investigative skills, and with a little help from his assistant, C.J., Houston always manages to bring the bad guys (or girls) to justice. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

BEST SHOW!!!!!
16 July 1999 | by morrison-7See all my reviews

This was the best show there ever was. I wish this was brought back or at least provide access to the videos. Lee Horsley is the best actor there is.
