Nothing is simple in The Big Easy, the setting for Season One of this sexy, action-packed crime series. In New Orleans steamy Latin Quarter, passions run as hot as Tabasco, loyalty has the life expectancy of a Rum Hurricane and the dark waters of the Louisiana bayou tell no tales.
Based on the hit 1987 film, THE BIG EASY stars Tony Crane (WISHMASTER) as Remy McSwain, a freewheeling Cajun cop not above committing a crime to solve one, and Susan Walters (SEINFELD s Mulva )as beautiful but dedicated federal agent Anne Osborne, who will go the distance to uphold the law... even as far as jumping into Remy s bed.
Costarring Barry Corbin (NORTHERN EXPOSURE) and produced by Sonny Grosso, whose career as a New York City cop inspired THE FRENCH CONNECTION, THE BIG EASY ran for two seasons on cable television's USA Network, bringing to discerning viewers a level of violence and eroticism at that time uncommon for prime time TV.

Available for the first time on DVD.
Originally aired on the USA Network.
Based on the critically acclaimed feature film starring Dennis Quaid and Ellen Barkin
Shot on location in New Orleans.
Stars Tony Crane (Wishmaster), Susan Walters (Seinfeld s Mulva ), and Barry Corbin (Northern Exposure).

Anyway, now, looking at the show I must say it is pretty bad. I love the music, the setting and the sexy vibe of it all, but story and acting wise it leaves much to be desired. It is just not very sophisticated. Remy McSwain (Tony Crane) is your typical film-noir detective. His character is pretty one dimensional and he acts more like he was a private eye than a cop. He is a caricature of your typical loner detective who has a problem with authority really and who roams the steamy city with driving a metallic blue Corvette with the top down while wearing white linen suits with yellow silk shirts and a gold ring. He really doesnt have much of a personality beyond that. I seriously doubt any cop could walk around and behave like that - not even in NO; then again, this is one of the charming things about the show - although it would have been nice to have a multidimensional character.
Ann Osbourne (Susan Walters) who's supposed to be the assistant DA is not very believable in that role, mainly because she spends most of her time chasing people around while playing detective with Remy and throwing in the occasional legal jargon to create tension between her and Remy.
The series is filled with clichees like that.Read more ›
