Set in 1950's New York, Nero Wolf, (Maury Chaykin) an eccentric orchard loving brilliant detective, with a taste for fine cuisine, an assistant named Archie Goodwin (Timothy Hutton), he lives in luxury in a brownstone mansion, solving difficult crimes, sometimes just to annoy the local police, and other times at a great cost to his clients. An ensemble cast of characters each playing different roles in any particular episode, keep this legendary series alive and fresh week to week.Written by
Conrad Dunn plays the recurring role of Saul Panzer throughout the series except for the first case, The Golden Spiders, where that role was played by Saul Rubinick. Rubinick switched to the recurring role of newspaperman Lon Cohen for the rest of the series. See more »
How could they Cancel Nero Wolfe. Starring Timothy Hutton as Archie Goodwin the assistant to the Famous Nero Wolfe played by Maury Chaykin. The plots are Fantastic I have never seen a Nero Wolfe I didn't like, Archie is hilarious when he annoys the Wolfe and Wolfe would never want to get rid of Archie because he is the best assistant. The characters are very well rounded and very versatile. The regular characters like Lon Cohen and Saul Panzer are very intriguing. I bought the box sets and just wish that I could see new ones every week. I recommend all of you TV watchers out there that like Detective Shows watch this they should be available on A&E every now and then or even at your local video store but it is well worth it.
