(a) A Veronica-Lake lead character with a heart. (b) Cases were solved without violence or machine guns. (c) And ..... she owned a jazz club. Game-set-and-match.
The early episodes were uneven, I'll admit that. And one commentary elsewhere - that much of the detective work was done by secondary-role men - had some validity, yet if the show had caught on, few would have noticed. All-in-all, no flaws that could not have been fixed along the way. Indeed, the show would have changed organically, anyhow.
Lifetime heavily promoted this show for a very short time; seems strange that they cut the umbilical cord after so short a time. Sure wish that one of the major networks had picked up this ball and ran with it.
Well, we can hope that this will be released someday, can't we?
