I searched in the Visual Arts thread for Burke's Law and found that all the threads that mention it have been closed (they were 10+ years old for the most part!), so I thought I'd reopen the topic by bringing up a golden oldie thread, Old TV Shows that don't suck. That being said, I always loved Burke's Law----I believe this was Aaron Spelling's first show as a producer, and it certainly set the formula for Love Boat, Fantasy Island, et al.: a somewhat outlandish premise, a lot of up and coming TV actors/actresses with a lot of older, well-known but practically retired movie actors/actresses included. And what a premise! An extremely rich, handsome bachelor with a chauffeur-driven gold Rolls-Royce who just happens to be the head of homicide for the LAPD. Always lots of lovely women, extremely sexist and nowadays politically-incorrect repartee. somebody gets killed but we don't take it seriously and it all gets wrapped up inside an hour. The first season is still the only one you can get on DVD, unfortunately. I remember it ended halfway thru the third season in '65, by which time the whole premise had been changed and its title was changed to Amos Burke, Secret Agent. No more Rolls-Royce, replaced with a bunch of secret agent spyware a la James Bond's and the humor was all gone. Spelling said in his autobio that ABC-TV wanted the premise changed to reflect the secret agent spy meme that was still sweeping the world, and since they wrote the checks, he did what they wanted. Too bad! Here's an episode from Season 2 that introduced Honey West (Anne Francis), who got her eponymous TV show that fall: What old TV shows that didn't suck do you remember fondly?
