Storyline

Pilot for sci-fi detective series "Search." Hugh O'Brian as Lockwood, a high-tech private eye, was outfitted with two electronic implants (one to hear what was said at HQ and a dental contact he could bite to communicate with HQ--one bite for yes and two bites for no) and a button-sized "scanner" that combined a micro-miniaturized television camera that could also see in infrared spectrum, microphone, medical sensors, and transmitter, putting him in constant contact with a room full of experts monitoring his actions and vital signs and supplying him with encyclopedic information. Burgess Meredith as Cameron, Lockwood's "head kibitzer." Story involves missing diamonds. Series plots tended to be "missing object(s) or person(s)"-type detective stories, rather than murder "whodunits" or "howcatchems." Written by James H. H. Lampert <jamesl@hb.quik.com>

Trivia

Bilingual pun: When Lockwood offers his hand to Ulli at the restaurant table, he asks, "May I?" She responds, "Mais oui!" In French, that means "But of course!" However, the same two syllables in English are "May we!", suggesting a more intimate invitation. See more »

Goofs

The flight that Lockwood and Streeter take at the beginning of the film changes from a 707 to a 747 apparently in mid-flight. See more »

Probe and more
29 September 2006 | by pdikoffSee all my reviews

I had just come to America from Australia and was like a kid in a candy store, when it came to television. I find it amusing that today many of the sophisticated shows are becoming popular. I was accustomed to "The Persuaders" , "UFO", and reruns of "The Avengers" and "The Saint". All these shows offered exotic locations and cars, excellent theme songs and fast pace with a lot of high tech gadgetry. "Search" offered a format similar to that of NBC"S "Sunday Mystery Movie", by using revolving characters. "Fame is the Name of the Game" offered the same type of format years earlier. That also starred Tony Franciosa. There are so many of these forgotten shows, but I am glad that they were able to make an impact on my childhood. I feel sorry for the young lads and lasses that do not have this type of educational influence on their lives today. These shows introduced us to many new things and an air of sophistication. My nephew who, is almost the same age as I was when I came here is getting that from DVD's of these shows along with the Connery Bond series. The only show that offered anything close to these shows is "Keen Eddie". Cancelled after only one season. We should probably be grateful that there are only a handful of these shows as it makes each episode even more special.
