      Episode number four from Tenspeed and Brown Shoe is another one of those long, crazy titles. It’s called The Sixteen Byte Data Chip and the Brown-eyed. Below are a few thoughts about this March 1980 episode.

      –For once, the romance was turned around. In the first three shows, Jeff Goldblum’s Lionel Whitney


      character has had some romantic entanglement. For me, that’s a bit excessive. In this show, though, it’s Ben Vereen’s E.L. Turner who finally gets some action.

      –What is nice about the romance between E.L. (Tenspeed) and the detective agency’s client is that it’s the most real. While Lionel’s had been somewhat flighty ...


      • and not all that meaningful, this spark was for real. I like that we get to see this side of Tenspeed, who is normally so high strung and concentrating on schemes and things. We get a glimpse of the inner man here, and that’s pretty special.

        –Lynne Moody is delightful as Lola Marshall,

        the object of Tenspeed’s affections and the agency’s client. She’s wanting to find her brother, who has gone missing.

        I do enjoy this show. It’s a well done mix of comedy and drama, and you just can’t beat Goldblum and Vereen in these oddball roles. While some bits are a little campy, it still works.
