I was in high school when this show debuted. I heard that accent and took one look at Pierce Brosnan in that tuxedo and KNEW that he would be the next James Bond. My father, who's favorite 007 is the original, said that PB was too thin (I believe "candy-ass" was term he used). But I was convinced.
This was a very cool show, especially when we got a glimpse into Remington's past. I liked the earlier episodes with the other male detective who worked for Laura and competed with Remington for her affections. I guess the producers decided to eliminate a rival and introduce some comic relief by getting rid of Murphy and bringing in Mildred.
