I remember watching these on tv when I was a kid. If you like the Naked Gun movies you'll love this series. I was always kind of disappointed that this show was cancelled so early and not given a chance to take off. Leslie Neilsen is at his slapstick best and the supporting cast is hilarious as well. I highly recommend it.
I know that this show was popular with my parents generation but I find it hilarious also. Yes it's really seventies but the jokes are timeless. And, for those of you who usually say, "I don't get it", this show makes the jokes quite obvious. Well worth renting when you need a cheap laugh.
I suspect they canceled this show because it demanded (and rewarded) close attention. That works better in a theater than on TV. Hilarious and ridiculous from Lincoln shooting back and the dying guest star, to the "freeze-frame" ending.
This came in the mail a few days before Nielsen's death.
