Storyline

This was the pilot to the series. A man and a woman who are lovers commit a murder. Eventually it is revealed that the victim is the father and husband of the two who killed him. J.L. McCabe, the tough district attorney known as "The Fatman", suspects them right away but unfortunately has no evidence, so he sends his ace investigator, Jake Styles to get the evidence. But it won't be easy cause these two covered their tracks very well. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Fun, 80's style, let's cancel it.
25 May 2001 | by a_gendaSee all my reviews

It started with some right elements:

Penny as Jake, a suave police detective, presumably a gigolo, that drove around in a silver porsche speedster wore fancy suits and basically, got things done.

William Conrad as a fat, gruff, unkempt district attorney with a dog called max.

It had a urban background and it worked.

Then they transferred the locale to Hawaii (presumably to reduce costs) and Jake was driving a cheaper car while at the same time, somehow he became some sort of milk-drinking/boy scout/social worker, but it still worked (kinda).

Then they really scrimped on the production values, the series stunk and , surprise! it had to be cancelled.
