Great series!
20 August 2005 | by scarletpimpernel-tokraSee all my reviews

I was very sorry when the series ended. I enjoyed enormously, all the episodes, the stories, the actors, everything about it. The thread has been taken from "Beverly Hills cop" - I believe- from the scene where Billy ( who was reloading his gun), hidden together with Taggart (John Ashton) behind a wall, on their bellies, to avoid the bullets of Victor Maitland's goons, said to Taggart that the scene reminds him of Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, when they were surrounded by the Bolivian Army and run out of bullets;to which Taggart(John Ashton) answered that if they will get out alive from that jam, he will make Billy(character played by Judge Reinhold)pay!! The scene was extremely funny and somebody had the idea to take these two characters out of this movie and make a series. They created Kaz and Battles from Billy and Taggart, from "Beverly Hills cop". I did not manage to tape the pilot. Could anybody help me with information where could I get a copy of the pilot? The entire series has not been released on DVD or on VHS, here in England; it only has been televised once.
