This was a failed pilot with Adam west. It reminds me of police squad with leslie nielsen. Conan 'O Brian was one of the writers.

thanks, I'll have to watch this later... I'll watch just about anything with Adam West (including the Fairly Odd Parents  :-)

Adam West is very good at what he does.

Another fine actor who doesn't take himself too seriously. At least that's the vibe I've always gotten from him, especially when he consented to host the 94' Turkey Day Marathon.

I think Conan was THE writer for that show.  I wonder if the new Andy Richter show will be similar or if they'll be taking an entirely different route with the "guy who isn't really a detective" idea.

the new Andy Richter show


Andy has a new show?

I've seen this pilot and thought it was a tremendously good idea.  I wonder if the failed Celebreality show Armed and Famous got the idea from this unsold pilot.  Makes sense, don't you think?

Nobody thinks Adam West can be funny.  Most people think because of Batman he can only be campy.  Then anyone who knows his roles on Family Guy knows he can be funny.  Most do not, however.  Too bad.  He was also enjoyable in that one episode of Celebrity Deathmatch.

Stacy Cornbread:  "Wow, you must be so excited to have been brought back from the dead with the time machine."

Adam:  "I keep telling you, I'm NOT dead."

I haven't heard anything in a while, but it premiers mid-March on NBC.  Conan is producing it.
