The Greatest Detective Show on TV
This show followed up the great classic 70's detective show's: Barnaby Jones, Cannon, Banecek, McMillan and Wife, Mcloud, Starsky and Hutch, Ironside, Longstreet, and Columbo, and was equal on par in terms of quality. I used to watch this show every Sunday night with my family. CJ was hot, Murray was cool, and the Lts where always willing to help solve the crime. What better premise can you have than A millionaire Texan that has nothing better to do than solve crimes. I even remember the running "baddie" in a couple of episodes who was Houston's arch nemesis played bu Chuck Connors. And when Buddy Ebson joined the cast as uncle Floyd it added some credibility to the show.
