Series Info

The sly, hip, often imitated romantic dramedy about an ex-model and a PI who team up to run the Blue Moon Detective Agency. As the lead characters tried to decide if they loved or hated each other, the series established itself as a prime example of the `will they or won't they' subgenre so popular in 1980s TV. Filled with rapid-fire dialogue, in-jokes and some memorable parodies, this is a show, as its creator Glenn Gordon Caron said, `that knows it's on television.'
