If anyone has this series on VHS or DVD. I would be interested in purchasing a copy.
The series is very well written and because of the time in which the show was written, I loved the time in in which the show takes place. I really loved the idea of the Private Eye and Michael Woods plays the part to perfection.
Josh Brolin plays his part good and the office girl, Dottie that works for Cleary does also.
I think the show had a lot of style and a really 'retro deco neon drenched noirish 50's/early 60's dragnet look' that was really great. "Private Eye" had a nu-wave 'rebel without a cause' kind of feel,complete with a 'unshaven trench coat wearing cigarette smokin' gumshoe' type and a 'black leather jacketed, blue jeans' white t-shirt wearin',engineer booted,ducktailed,chopped black 50's hotrod mercury.
