Two brothers, but you'd never have known it by looking at them. A.J. and Rick were partners in a small, struggling detective agency. Rick, an eccentric, grubby and laid-back to the point of being lazy. A.J. was conservative, dedicated and ambitious.

* Andrew Jackson (A.J.) Simon ..... Jameson Parker

Thank you for reading my review and have a nice day :)
I always loved the orginal theme music that showed up during the episodes in later years, but is in all of its glory right up front for this season. The "not original music" disclaimer on the cover seems to refer only to the season two credits being used on episode 4--the same thing happens on Sleuth network reruns for this one episode. Don't get me wrong the theme music for season 2 on is just as wonderful--and lo and behold we get it on this set!!! That's a REAL bonus, in my opinion. The fourteenth episode on this set is season 2, episode 20--"The Secret of the Chrome Eagle." So we get the new theme on 1/4 and 2/20, and they have different montages (there were at least 2 opening credit sequences in season 2)--I've always liked both, so this is yet another bonus feature, im my opinion. 2/20 also features Rick in his green hunting jacket that I remember so fondly.
The transfers are much better than the recent Riptide set, but not perfect. There are some white flecks from time to time. But it looks darn good.Read more ›

|Simon & Simon - we want more seasons -- can we make an impact?||
I agree and just e-mailed Universal Studios to ask why they have no plans to release Season 2. If anyone else would like to e-mail them in support of releasing Season 2, you can do so here. http://www.universalstudios.com
