Hey, this cat has class! Playboy private eye BUDDY FARO is a swinging dick, the "quickest-thinking, hardest-hitting, wildest-loving investigator of them all." Problem is, he mysteriously dropped out of sight in 1978.
It takes BOB JONES, a straight arrow, decidedly small-time private eye, who's idolized Buddy, to find and bring him back home after 20 years. But it seems Buddy's brought 1978 back with him. Although in Buddy's world, 1978 seems a lot like 1958. Cadillacs still zig, Tony Bennett's still crooning, babes are still beautiful and the crumbs around town are still trying to get away with murder. With Bob's brains and Buddy's style, a crime-solving partnership is born and Los Angeles just might become a safe place to live again.
This one was promising, but too few folks saw it for the parody it almost certainly was. More than one promising show TV show out there has proven too hip for the room, and this was certainly one of them.
"As fans of the detective genre ourselves, we're having a lot of fun with it," admits one writer. It sounds like a fun-ass show, hip AND smart, and the writers plan on having a bit of fun with some of the conventions of the genre, and paying slightly twisted tribute to several crime classics.
