I just bought the 1st season collection and have only watched the pilot - I hope it get's better. This is one silly show. Lots of pretty women but the writing is nausiatingly immature and trite. I like the actors and the locations - but it just doesn't take itself very seriously - I thought since Stephen Cannell created this it would be good - but it's no comparison to his other great show - The Rockford Files.
