Show Summary

Once upon a time, actors Michael Devitt and Christina Towne starred together on a hit television show called "Two of Diamonds", about two private eyes married to each other. Eventually, the two co-stars married in real-life, but when their marriage floundered, so did the show. Divorced, and unemployed, Mike decides to open a real private detective agency, and convinces Christina to join him. They call the agency "Two of Diamonds." Michael is the impulsive, instinctive one, and Christina is the more reserved one, methodical, logical, pragmatic. Suffice it to say that sparks of a rather romantic nature occasionally took flight in this Canadian production that smells a bit like Moonlighting, although, for the most part, Mike and Christina kept it strictly business. It was clear they still cared for one another, but it didn't degenerate into a overly sappy and soggy "will they/won't they?" storyline. Aiding and abetting the on-again, off-again twosome is Michael's cousin, Lieutenant Lou Gianetti, a member of the York (Toronto, actually, trying once more to be New York) police force, and René, a former collegue and one of the best special effects men in the business.moreless

  • Loved this show!

    I wish there was some way to see this series again. I love it!
  • Loved it!

    A highly underrated Canadian TV series, thoroughly enjoyable with a wonderful cast. The episode of Donald's wedding is absolutely classic. I defy Moonlighting to have done it better. Also the episode where they are cast in Donald's movie and the actor yells at Christina as they are doing his death scene, "are you going to cry real tears?" and she answers, "only if you promise to really die." The Apple Valley episode, the kidnapping episode that involved the mob -- all fantastic, fresh, and wonderful. Besides the regulars, many actors who have appeared at Stratford were guest stars.moreless
  • Great show!! I loved the storyline and the cast. If the series was available on DVD I would buy it!

    I love this show!! In the late 1980's my best friend and I use to watch it at night during midnight feedings. She lived right across the street from me and the next morning, over coffee, we would get together and discuss the latest episode. We loved the storyline, their obvious affections for one another and the fact that a mystery was solved each week. Our hope was that one day they would get back together. Some of the episodes were a little corny. The cast was great including the supporting actors. Over the years I have seen Nicholas Campbell in small roles here and there. I am happy to see that he has his own series, The De Vinci Enquire. Unfortunately, I have not seen or heard anything about Peggy Smithhart. I hope all is well with her. If this series was available on DVD I would buy it!!moreless
  • Had a sense of knowing it was not going to bring home an Emmy but tried to be worthy anyway. :)

    i enjoyed it for what it was, a late night syndicated drama with no network money to give it some ooomph! The actors were believable and the set up with them being done with their romance was something seldom seen on TV. That made it more interesting than some other shows that failed to last even a season.
