Storyline

Nick Hannigan was a beaten-down private investigator who was reduced to running the Hannigan Detective School and Agency. His students, including loud-mouthed Charlene, elderly Robert Redford, sexy Teresa, shapely Maggie and disco-dancing Silvio, were supposed to show up and have a few lessons in basic detection skills, but instead they kept dragging Nick into investigating real cases and getting themselves into trouble.

Funny Stuff... I'd like to see it again!
20 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This admittedly forgettable short-lived comedy gem served a dual purpose for me... It was mildly amusing in a "Barney Miller-esque" sort of way, but more importantly, it was my introduction to the Mystery genre... The eager young (or old!) detectives in training helped PI Nick Hannigan (a "Miller" veteran) solve a puzzling crime/mystery. For me, the real payoff each episode was when the culprit was unmasked, or the lost item found, the studio audience burst into applause. This never happens on traditional detective shows, and I finally understood WHY people loved a good mystery. Now, I love cop/detective shows, and am an avid reader of Sherlock Holmes. And it's all thanks to Hannigan and his students...
