Have to agree that this was a lost chance at a worthy spy TV show, the like of which we haven't seen since The Man from UNCLE. What a fun show I thought when it was first screened here in Oz. To later learn it had been canceled merely confirmed my assessment of the lack of imagination in US TV series these days. I suspect they are afraid to release it to DVD because it may embarrass to see what a fan base it had. Oops! The accountants pretending to know what is worthy TV fodder strike again.
I also concur that the series was very like Probe aka Search which also had a very brief tenure.The pilot of that series was recently released to DVD and I found it most entertaining and disappointed that the series was also not released. What astonishes me is that the concept is a great one, worthy of a successful series. I suspect, like Fortune Hunter, if Search had been given a chance to develop, it could have been and interesting and successful series. I do agree thought that the lead actors in Fortune Hunter did create greater interest and fun, than the earlier version, especially when the machinery had to be transplanted to Dial's apartment.
Great show. Please Fox release it to DVD.
