Simon & Simon

Show Summary

Simon & Simon is a show based on two brothers who just happen to be private investigators. They live and work in San Diego where once a week, for eight seasons, the series revealed the loyality and love they had for one another. "They're more than brothers, they're best of friends." The show was cancelled midway into the eighth season, and it was only in re-runs that the final episodes were ever aired.

The original theme song for the show was performed by The Thrasher Brothers. Later seasons featured a more contemporary instrumental theme, but used the same music as the original.

  • McRaney the cat killer

    1.0
    McRaney is now a sick old man, killing African wildlife for fun and paying dodgy operators for it that are very likely linked to unpaid poaching also.

    This leopard was taken by Gerald McRaney, star of Simon and Simon, with my outfitter. If I don't take one on this hunt, I will go back in 2014.

    simon&simon is like the early days of prison break to me, but i remembered it when i was young, and it was on CBS TV. it was all there was on at the time after maginum pi. on CBS. and it was the big deal back then when was on cbs. i watch it now and look back on the way it was and diffrent then it is now.and this show still has the same thrills as it was back in the 80's when it was new. all in a nut shell a great show and thanks for memories great.moreless
  • Sleuth channel, thank you for giving us the opportunity to watch this great show once again!

    9.5
    The 80s were wonderful time in television for action, adventure, animation, comedy, and of course, mystery. This show is right up there with Magnum, P.I. as one of the best. Dynamic writing, effective use of plot and strong character development gave Rick and AJ Simon personalities all their own. One of the greatest episodes that best shows this is the series finale, where the brothers take on their final case in the series (until they come back for a reunion movie in 1995). Bittersweet as it was, they dealt with losing out in love, going through life day-to-day as private investigators. But no matter what, they have always been and always stick with each other through thick and thin. Each case they take through out the show's run brings them closer as siblings, as well as the friends and people they meet along the way that give them the courage and strength to be able to take on anything.



    It's not easy for me to explain each of the many details that I've enjoyed about this series, but I am thankful to finally be able to see this show on the Sleuth channel after a long absence from television. I highly suggest anyone who has this channel to watch all of the many mystery/p.i. shows the network offers. You'll be glad you did.moreless
  • Two brothers working together as detectives.

    I was not born when this show was on TV. I just happened on it when I was watching the extra episodes on my Magnum, P.I. season one box set. I thought the episode was great. I asked my mom about Simon and Simon, and she told me that it was like Magnum, P.I. as in it was a detective show about two brothers.



    Well, I found the first season of Simon and Simon on DVD, and I watched every single episode. I love it! This is a great show.



    The show follows two brothers, Rick and AJ Simon, as they try to work together in their detective agency. They have totally different personalities than the other one. AJ is more clean cut. He wears suits, he is into old cars, and he is more of the business type. Rick on the other hand is the total oppisite of his brother. He would rather wear blue jeans and a t-shirt, go fishing, and he would rather play his guitar.



    Some how this two seem to be able to work together without a lot of trouble between the two of them. This was and is a great show that the whole family could watch. I know I would have loved this show if I was around when it was on.



    Overall, this is a great show, and we need to have shows on now that were more like this one.moreless
  • Awesome show from the 80's era.

    What a blast from the past. They don\'t make shows this enjoyable anymore!! I hope Universal DVD releases all the remaining seasons on DVD soon. Rick and AJ were what all red blooded american kids wanted to be like during the 80\'s. They were tough and always got the job done. They were gentlemenly ladies men and always kicked a little butt in the process. The show was best with Janet, Towne, and Marlowe the Mutt. However, I\'d take them all with GM and JP. This was when TV was clean and worth watching. I hope Sleuth plays all the episodes.moreless
