According to the jacket, this series was broadcast on National Public Radio. It seems as if every comic writer finds it fatuously easy to take a crack at hard-boiled detective fiction, and the results on these audiocassettes are no better than bad. The episodes are filled with sophomoric humor, heavy in sexual innuendo, and entirely lacking subtlety; every joke is as obvious as a fist in the face. The two redeeming features are that the sound effects are good and the actors generally skilled in working out the flaccid and stereotypical characters. If you like modern situation comedy, you'll like this. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
