  • That's one way to solve a problem when you don't know what to call an episode

      As crazy as it sounds, the tenth episode of the 1980 private detective show, Tenspeed and Brown Shoe, was called simply Untitled. That’s one way to solve a problem when you don’t know what to call an episode. The series stars Ben Vereen and Jeff Goldblum, both of whom excel in their roles.

      For Goldblum, he plays the owner of the agency, Lionel Whitney. For Vereen, he plays the con man, E.L. ‘Tenspeed’ Turner.

      Guest starring in this hour of sometimes comedy and sometimes drama are Rene Auberjonois, Claude Earl Jones, and Lesley Woods.

      We got our usual fight scene with Lionel doing karate. By this episode,

      • though, he no longer feels like he has to announce that he’s a black belt, something he did religiously in the first few shows.

        In this show, the agency’s cleaning lady, Katie, becomes part of Tenspeed’s cons, only there’s some truth to it as well. It all has to do with her being a Russian

        countess and marrying a man so he can become a count. She gets some money that he pays, Tenspeed gets a commission, and Lionel is just upset by the whole thing, especially when a couple of men try to kidnap all of them.

        Untitled is a decent show. I really liked Woods portrayal. She was fun.
