Alternate Versions

The R1 DVD replaced the score by Orbital and most of the licensed music that was used in the show on its broadcast run with a different composer's music. One of the few exceptions was the episode "Citizen Cecil," which still retained the Duran Duran songs used in its broadcast run, mainly because they were so integral to the plot. See more »

User Reviews

 
Better than Ritchie.
30 November 2004 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Keen Eddie" is a thoroughly enjoyable sitcom cops & capers TV series about a square jawed NYC detective who is sent/banished to London to fight crime where he wrestles with his beautiful flat mate in a love/hate relationship and busts crooks with his sexaholic male partner while announcing..."Hi, I'm Eddie. How do you like me so far?". A fun, fresh, fast paced comedy cop romp with ample talent on both sides of the lens and punched up with Guy Ritchiesque A/V effects, this all too short lived TV series should make for an enjoyable DVD watch for anyone old enough for a little risqué humor and young enough to not be annoyed by the constant kinetics. (B+)
