In 1986 CBS canceled "Crazy Like a Fox" (9-10 est) and "Trapper John, MD" (10-11 est) to make way for movies to be shown after "Murder, She Wrote". Airing as the CBS Sunday Night Movie, the first hour of "Still Crazy Like a Fox" was aired in the same Sunday Night 9PM - 10PM time slot the original series had aired in from 1984-86. See more »
The Fox family is on vacation in London while Harrison has a work interview. Someone breaks into Harry's hotel room. He chases down the intruder but he turns out to be the widely respected William Church, The Duke of Trent. Nobody believes Harry. Harry is arrested but the Duke drops the charges. It's a conspiracy affecting the highest political level. The Duke's wife Nancy actually believes Harry. Harry receives the hotel room's previous occupant's dry cleaning but it's a setup. He follows the clues and finds the Duke's dead body. He gets arrested for the murder. He is denied bail but manages to escape.
It's a year after the TV show got cancelled. It's a last chance and they had a bit of fun. It's not the worst way to go out. It's two seasons and a movie. If they wanted renewing the show, they may be better off staying in San Francisco. It would remind the viewer of the show. Nevertheless, this is perfectly good. It has the family dynamics. Harry and son have lots of fun adventures including getting naked. It's able to strike a balance between the comedy and the action thriller. The show was cancelled too soon and this couldn't get it back on the air.
