Psst Guys! They Don't Want The Car!
15 February 2015 | by Jason Daniel BakerSee all my reviews

Cocky college men Jack Gage (Bruce Greenwood) and David Taylor (John Terlesky) work as bail repo men/process servers to help cover tuition and cost of living. Continually exploited by their shady employer Oscar - proprietor of Tri-Star Bail Bonds, they are nevertheless desperate for cash and coerced into accepting an assignment of greater risk.

Attempting to repossess a Ferrari belonging to a touring musician they incur the wrath of a couple of mean hombres. Unwittingly they have stolen an important item that happens to be somewhere inside the car. They remain oblivious to its presence whilst using it to squire a pair of attractive young ladies for an evening at an amusement park.

The thugs are continually able to find Jack and David for a game of cats and mice.

Captured here is that moment in a guy's life when he still thinks nothing can touch him but consequences for risks have sudden severity and juggling responsibilities becomes more precarious. Engineering student Jack and law student David pay those consequences but appear to enjoy the adrenaline rush some of the time.

Utilizing boyish charm while acting boldly they also exercise discernible ingenuity which can look distinctly like a blueprint for disaster up until it comes out right.

The opportunities for comedic possibilities were all mined sufficiently on this show. A young Bruce Greenwood and an even younger John Terlesky deliver solid characterizations and have chemistry on screen together. Smart writing, capable direction and a procession of appealing guest stars (Like Janine Turner and Jan Smithers in this episode) made it that much more enjoyable.

The NBC network always covet younger demographics particularly the 14-25 bracket. Head of programing Brandon Tartikoff gave the go ahead for this show as a mid-season replacement but simultaneously doomed it to failure by scheduling it on Friday nights in late January 1984 with other new shows.
