| The pilot was great
The show started off good with handsome Michael Woods as "Jack Cleary" a private eye with a lot of charisma and a "Clint Eastwood" voice. Josh Brolin played his young informer and (sort of) side kick who helped with cases. The locations were perfect as were the cars and actors.The show, about Hollywood in the 1950's, had tons of possibilities with an excellent pilot. The first episodes showed promise but it seemed to keep going down hill, script wise, as the season progressed. ABC did nothing to publicize the show and Brandon Tartikoff, who headed the network, made some lame remarks about one of the actors, which was totally unfounded. The show was canceled after one season.
