I always liked the everyman, non-star Cannon.
Don't forget these guys
Columbo was fantastic because it was completely different from all other detective shows to that point in history; it was written and presented backwards. All detective shows were mysteries, and the viewer learned the details of how the crime was committed along with the protagonist. Columbo began with the crime being committed, with the viewer having a God's-eye perspective of all the clues necessary to solve the crime. The real entertainment was watching Peter Falk's character discover each clue--as well as his, "Oh, one more thing" gotcha moment in most every show.
Had a long term adolescent crush on Anne Francis!
Columbo, McCloud, and McMillan and Wife. I think it was NBC, and it was called the Sunday Mystery Movie
My vote just put Colombo in the lead over Rockford! And that's as it should be.
Well, there's just one more thing...
In 3 years I can teach my oldest how to 'pull a Rockford.'
PETER GUNN SOPHISTICATED COOL.
who else would hang at a low key bar/ jazz lounge named Mothers
I was gonna say Rockford, but I didn't expect Kolchak to be on the list. One of the coolest shows ever IMO, even if they ran out of ideas and cancelled it after one season.
I would LOVE if they brought that show back, but I'm not sure who could ever carry the role like Darren McGavin did.
Wasn't McCloud the show where Chester Goode attempted to play Clint Eastwood?
I think Magnum's votes should go to Rockford. So, please get rid of Magnum and flip those votes to Rockford. Let's get kraken'...
Rockford and Magnum are the best of their kind....seeing as how Selleck got the job due to his appearance on Rockford as a fellow Detective. The double feature of Magnum PI followed by Simon and Simon was how I spent my teens and still watch them from time to time.
I am a little surprised you left out Quincy MD or even Kolchak of the Night Stalker fame....2 very good investigators as well.
Valid point, the first episode for Magnum PI was December of 1980. I guess I would re-cast my vote for Rockford all the way.
I had an Opel GT like his, too.
This was JUST before my time, but I do remember watching a bunch of these on VHS in the mid 80s.
I think my dad had this album, too!
Who Loves ya, Baby?!
Henry was big time with Arthur Lyman .
you must listen to this..
The guy Lance that Selleck played was a real shmuck, but was incredibly lucky, and everything would just fall at his feet, and so Jimmy would always do all the work on every case they collaborated on and Lance would get all the credit, and usually the cash reward, if there was one, and Jimmy would get screwed again.
