Product Description

District attorney J.L. McCabe strikes down on the crime in Los Angeles together with his special investigator Jake Styles and assistant D.A. Derek Mitchell.

Amazon.com

Jake and the Fat Man’s episode titles give a clue as to this entertaining series' target demographic. Each takes its cue from a standard in the Great American Songbook, including "It Had to Be You," "Guess I'll Have to Change My Plans," and "After You've Gone." Like Murder, She Wrote, Diagnosis: Murder, and Matlock, from which this series was spun-off, Jake and the Fatman comforts viewers of a certain age with the assurance that when the hour is up, justice will be served, the guilty will be punished, and the more mature and unconventional hero will use his smarts and experience to teach younger people "who's who and what's what." For those just tuning in, this second volume serves as a fitting introduction to "legendary" and living large district attorney J.L. McCabe (William Conrad), who bullies, bellows, and blusters his way to the truth. As with Columbo, a crime is committed and the guilty party is revealed in the beginning of each episode. The fun is watching J.L. and his hunky young investigator Jake Styles (Joe Penny), who lives up to his name with his sharp wardrobe and sports cars, get on the suspect’s case. What Jake and the Fatman lacks in car chases and shoot-outs, it more than makes up for in smart writing and the chemistry between the two leads. Conrad and Penny carry these episodes without benefit of flashy guest stars. The most prominent in this set are Anthony Franciosa in "I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plans," as a washed up writer who, shades of Deathtrap, kills a promising young author and steals his novel, and David Soul in "How Long Has This Been Going On?" as a man who kills his wealthy wife and frames her lover, a priest, who, luckily, is Jake’s friend. Edward Winter (best known as Colonel Flagg on M*A*S*H) appears in "Rhapsody in Blue" as a man whose Lady Macbeth of a wife compels him to attempt to kill his boss. Some of the cases are personal. In "After You’ve Gone," Jake goes undercover as a hit man, and discovers his target is, you guessed it, "the Fatman." "Damn it to hell" (to quote one of the volcanic-tempered J.L.’s favorite oaths); as with Volume 1, extras are pretty thin; just spoilerific episode promos. --Donald Liebenson

If your a fan of Joe Penney (From Riptide)then you'll love this '80's series. Joe play private investigator Jake Styles who works with L.A district attorney J.L.(Fatman)McCabe. The relationship between the two leads works on alot of different levels. There's young guy(hothead)with older guy sensebilities. More like father and son in most cases.The action is good,and in the second season the show moves to Hawaii. But what stops me from giving this set 4 stars is the fact that Paramount split the season in half. Just like they did with Dynasty. Holding a series hostage and forcing you to buy the other half of the season is just downright greedy and mean on the studio's part. Don't they realize they would sell these series very well left intact? Especially when their competetors don't do it this way. In spite of Paramount's greed and lack of respect to their consumers,this is still a good series to have and own.

JAKE AND THE FATMAN is an excellent show. Season 2 is actually
better than season 1. Season 1, however, is fast-paced and
action-packed. Joe Penny is an excellent co-hort, and actually
improves with age. This is a series that I passed up the
first time around. (Not quite ready to see "Cannon" in
another role). (Nor did I care for "Nero Wolfe" which took
place somewhere in between the two shows). However, it IS exciting,
and William Conrad is superb in his role. I must admit that I did
William Conrad a grave injustice by not checking out this
show. HIGHLY recommended!!!

I can remember seeing this series when it was on TV. While I missed a lot of episodes then now I have had the chance to purchase both volumes of Season one of this series. Joe Penny is great as is William Conrad as the tough DA.

I enjoyed seeing Jake and the Farms again but was disappointed with the quality of the video. I will watch all the shows for the memories and the interplay of the characters but the picture is distracting.
