Quote from: paruses on November 06, 2021, 06:10:51 PMI hardly remember the series. It was just a bit after my bed time. I also have the feeling though that although it might be one of the most 80s things, it was more than the sum of its parts (unlike, say, Dynasty. Or Howard's Way as it was known in the UK).
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on November 06, 2021, 05:32:45 PMI don't think I've ever seen the series, but I do remember reading that it isn't (to begin with, anyway) remotely as cheesy as its ultra '80s trappings would suggest.
QuoteQuite fancy watching it now - would I need DVDs or is it stream/steal -able?

Quote from: Famous Mortimer on November 06, 2021, 06:19:17 PMExcellent podcast "The Rewatchables" did an episode on a double episode of the show a while back (they normally only do movies, but both hosts are big fans). My limited knowledge leads me to believe it dropped a little in quality when Michael Mann left?
Quote from: Goldentony on November 06, 2021, 06:44:13 PMWhateve the episode is with the bald guy fom Sex & The City? probably the best one for me outside of the pilot or whatever you want to call the first one.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on November 06, 2021, 05:32:45 PMThe film is rather shit, as I recall.
Quote from: Glebe on November 06, 2021, 08:03:08 PMNostalgic stuff. Jan Hammer's Crockett's Theme is fantastic.
Quote from: McChesney Duntz on November 06, 2021, 08:12:26 PMWho do you consider the best/weirdest cameo in the show's history? Me, it feels like a tossup between Leonard Cohen and Frank Zappa ("weasel dust"!).

Quote from: Famous Mortimer on November 07, 2021, 07:14:28 PMI was just going from, well, that podcast, and then looking at Wikipedia, whose article about this show keeps using present tense when it's definitely not appropriate. It doesn't sound like he had much to do with the show after season 2, though. After this discussion, though, I've decided to get a set of it, and have a watch. I barely remember it.
