I think all the new detective shows are not so good as Nash, some are really ok, but Nash Bridges had some great style and was more original. Some episodes are not so good that is true, but all in all it is just one great show.
I like Don Johnson (Nash Bridges) very, he is very good in his role there, but without his great car he would not be so cool.
All the other actors are good too, they have a diferent temper, not like in all the new detective shows everybody looks good, is very smart or does something else.
The new directors should learn from this show some things!
