Intersplicing clips of all those old heroes, like Bogart, Ladd, Stanwyck, Milland, Lancaster, Laughton, Cagney, with comic clips of Steve Martin as a keen, but clumsy detective who gets all the good lines, creates both an extremely funny comedy and a whodunnit in the best possible taste. find out more...

The series is now beginning to motor, the dialogue in this script is some of the smartest and the series is doing what it does at its best, parodying both 70s cop shows and the 70s themselves. find out more...
