  • This cowboy episode has our detectives looking for gold, sharing one sleeping bag.

    The first scene is outstanding, so hilarious I had to rewind it to see it without tears of laughter in my eyes. It's mascerade and Mr Steele seems to have picked out the costumes, Sherlock Holmes for himself, Laura is a bunny and Murphy is a clown. At this party they become aquainted with suspicious people, and someone trying to find 80 dubloons (or so they think).

    Mr Steele gets more than one new admirer in this episode, but as long as he's got a sleeping bag to share with Laura, where would he go? Driven by gold and eachother the team of investigators (Steele, Laura, Murphy) accompanied by clients and suspects they set out on a journey where everything, as usual, has to be messed up before it can be solved.moreless
