Product Description

Brotherly love is put to the test as all thirteen Season One episodes of the action-packed adventure series Simon & Simon arrive on DVD for the first time! Gerald McRaney and Jameson Parker star as the sibling sleuths whose approach to fighting crime are as unrelated as they come. A.J. (Parker) is slick, sophisticated and ambitious. His scruffy older brother, Rick (McRaney), would rather kick back and play his guitar. As private investigators, they're on the hunt for criminals, counterfeiters, and contract killers on the streets of San Diego, but in order to succeed, they'll have to work together without driving each other crazy in the process! Along for the exciting ride are popular guest stars Markie Post, Peter Graves, Jerry Stiller and more! From the producer of NCIS, JAG, Max Headroom and The Twilight Zone, comes the Emmy-nominated series about the mismatched detective duo with adventure coursing in their blood!

The half-hour documentary about 1980s television that accompanies this Simon & Simon - Season One box set does the show itself no favors. By profiling several other series of that era, it puts Simon & Simon right in its proper perspective: i.e., not as inane as, say, The A-Team or Knight Rider, but nowhere near as cool or ground-breaking as Miami Vice, as engaging as Quantum Leap, or as charming as Magnum P.I.. Not that this series about private investigating brothers A.J. (Jameson Parker) and Rick (Gerald McRaney) Simon is bad; like '80s San Diego, where it takes place, it's pleasant, laid-back, and not especially sophisticated. The rapport between the mismatched siblings has a certain roguish charm (A.J., the younger one, is fairly strait-laced and fastidious, while Rick is his loose cannon foil) that's reflected in the overall tone, as the brothers, who aren't exactly at the top of the heap in their profession, pursue killers, kidnappers, computer hackers, crooked concert ticket brokers, and such. But overall, this is tame stuff, even considering its tongue-in-cheek intentions. It's hard to imagine that viewers used to the higher production values, more graphic and intense content, and "keeping it real" vibe of new millennium cop dramas will be riveted by Simon & Simon's relentlessly lightweight and low-tech style; the sets are cheesy, the writing is drab, the villains are one-dimensional, and aside from the two stars, the acting is by and large on a Grade B level. On the other hand, those who abhor today's TV for the very reasons mentioned above might well prefer a gentle walk down memory lane and/or a slice of undemanding escapism, and this basic four-disc, 13-episode set will surely provide it. --Sam Graham
