The last half of season 3 features the return of 'Slick' in 2 separate episodes. 'Binzer' who usually just gets bit parts, is featured in his own story as a couple of old cronies come back for his hide. Also Lt. Nelson is featured in his own story as he is set up by an elaborate ploy to be charged with murder as he gets a taste of being on the other side of the law.
And 'Mr. Las Vegas' Wayne Newton makes a return to the Vega$ set. In this episode a deranged stalker/killer who happens to be a Lounge Singer in a strip club wants to be the only Wayne Newton(this is the same actor who played a crippled vet who was hell bent on getting revenge on Dan Tanna during season 1). We get to hear Wayne perform his famous song 'Danke Schoen' as well as Frank Sinatra's 'My Way'. I'm glad to see that all the original music is intact in this episode.
The usual drawback to this release is that it is rather pricey for only half a season with no special features. But I am glad that this series is now complete and I have the whole collection(many other older TV shows are still stuck in limbo at season 1 or 2 with nothing on the horizon).
Back in the 80's, I went to the property near the Circus Circus to see Tanna's house/office. It was in bad shape but we imagined Dan rolling in the garage door in the T-Bird. We miss you, Robert!
The series had everything a good detective show needed - i.e. a HOT detective, good story lines, a long list of familiar guest stars, a really cool theme song, great character rapport .... and most of all the excitement of the famous Las Vegas strip. For those old enough to remember what Vegas used to look like (before it became an adult Disneyland), seeing many of the classic hotels that no longer exist is an exciting venture. While I love "new" Vegas, I also have so many lovely memories of the "old" version. Oh, and while many of the hotels in this series are no longer standing, Dan Tanna's home still is. The building that was supposedly owned by his boss (Ross), played to a tee by the late great Tony Curtis, still stands behind Circus Circus ... although it's fenced off. I make it my business to look at it whenever I'm in Vegas. It makes me sad and happy all at once. While I'd like to think that Dan Tanna would be quietly retired by now, the unfortunate reality is that Robert Urich died way too young.
Some of the classic shows still hold up today.Read more ›
If any one is looking for a show with action and drama this is one of the best! Having the late Robert Urich in it is a great plus! I may have only been a little girl when I first saw him however, even then I could tell you the man was HOT! Thanks for bring this show back. Now if we can get Spencer for Hire on DVD that would be great!
