  • This was a show about a blind insurance investigator named Mike Longstreet, his aid Nikki Bell and friend/boss Duke Page. He also had a guide dog Pax. The shows focus on his efforts to be just as good of an investigator as he was before being blinded.moreless

    I really enjoyed this show while it was on and I felt it show have been given at least 1 or 2 more seasons to develop into an even better show. I felt that I got to know the characters fairly well and it was easy to care about Mike Longstreet and the challenges he faced. The setting of New Orleans was an inspired one and was one of the things that helped to set this show apart from some of the other "detective" shows of the time. I enjoyed the interactions of the characters and thought that they worked well together.moreless
