An Enjoyable, Yet Forgotten 70's Crime Drama
I have watched reruns of CITY OF ANGELS on the Arts & Entertainment Cable Network in the mid-1990s and found the series to be enjoyable. This was one of the TV shows that Wayne Rogers starred in after leaving the highly-successful, long-running comedy, M*A*S*H; but most TV viewers hardly remember ANGELS to this day.

Rogers' character in the series, Jake Axminster, was a Los Angeles private eye who had little regard for the law when it came to doing his job, and who thought of the Los Angeles Police Department in the 1930s as inefficient, as he states every week in the series' opening. His loyal secretary, Marsha (played by Elaine Joyce), was always busy working with high-class prostitutes whenever she is not helping Jake solve cases in their nearly-bankrupt PI business.

Only thirteen episodes of this series were produced by Universal and aired on NBC-TV from February to May of 1976, with low ratings being the reason for its cancellation.

If any cable network or local TV station picks this show up in the near future, I'd definitely watch it again.
