Thankfully, CBS has managed stick with this show and while the split-seasons at full-cost have remained a point of contention for many, I never thought we'd get this far. "Vega$" must be selling well-enough and I really can't see CBS abandoning it at this point with only a half-season left to go.
Robert Urich WAS the show and carrying it rests squarely on his capable shoulders, but the guest stars were almost as much of the reason for success here as they were on Spelling's anthology series ("Love Boat", "Fantasy Island", "Hotel"). This 1/2 season includes big-screen/small-screen legends such as Lorne Greene, Pernell Roberts, John Saxon, Julie Adams, Patrick MacNee, June Lockhart, Eleanor Parker, Gary Lockwood, Barbara Parkins, Victor Buono, Dick Sargent, Jill St. John, Don Stroud and Edie Adams. Then-current stars like Jill Whelan, Erin Gray, Lindsay Bloom, Stephen Shortridge also show up as well as some yet-to-be-big actors like Stepfanie Kramer, Priscilla Barnes and Joe Penny.
Not as fresh or enjoyable as Season 1 because smart-mouthed but motherly Naomi Stevens and bodacious Judy Landers are missing in action, but still fluffy, escapist fun. I recommend picking up this one up for a flashback to Sin City at the dawn of the totally awesome '80s.
The first half of season 3 features the 2-part episode filmed in beautiful Hawaii where Tanna is kidnapped and put under a trance in order to murder Casino magnate Phillip Roth. And Tony Curtis makes a return as the Roth character in 'Deadly Blessings'.
This episode also features the Nun that appeared in season 1. Of course this set is a bit pricey for only half a season and no specials, but I am just glad that it is finally released(so many other classic TV show DVD's are stuck at a couple seasons or less and no further releases).
This show had some very slight influence on the novel, LAS VEGAS BANDITS.
I like the actors that were in the series and the shows were well written.

This show is a gem from the 1970's. I am too young to have seen it when it was on, but it was recommended by my mother because she knows I am a Robert Urich fan. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Sixtus
