At its worst, in the last couple of seasons, Moonlighting became brooding and somewhat depressing. Of course, as with many shows like this, the never released sexual tension between the male and female leads (David and Maddie) was what drove the show. The show "Jumped the Shark" at the same time the writers made the mistake of letting David jump Maddie. It was all downhill from there.
But the first seasons were glorious and inventive, some of the best TV series entertainment ever.
Gobble them up when you have the chance.
Although the writing kinda went off track in the last two seasons, I'd say it's still worth it to get the complete set. It's a shame the show didn't run longer. And it's brilliance was sort of overshadowed by some bad press and internal conflict. I think it still had a lot of life left in it but sadly it got cut short. Some compare this series to the other detective shows that were ubiquitous during that decade, but i think that is not accurate. Moonlighting is not a detective show per se. It is a romantic comedy with the mystery/suspense storyline as backdrop. The main characters' relationship was the real focal point of the series, as you will learn if you watch the whole thing from the pilot to the final episode.
I'm very happy I bought this pack. The DVD format is not very intuitive and the packaging is rather flimsy, but I can overlook that because the bonus features more than make up for it. Hopefully they do a proper boxed set/blu-ray pack because this show deserves it.
Maddie and David are two people I would love to have known. Their personalities and experience are very different but they balance each other like evenly matched boxers- both win the title of most entertaining.
There are so many younger versions of the faces I know now as seasoned stars. I laugh out loud at the some of the sequences- like Maddie in the postal bin, and David on the run. Who knew they could both sing and dance?
The interviews are also worth watching- to "meet" the minds that created Blue Moon. I listen to Al Jarreau all the way through the rolling credits. Bruce Willis with hair and Maddie with neverending legs and Quarterback shoulder pads. I missed it then, it seems, and so am glad they are captured for me now. Worth every penny to have the whole set.
