      The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street was episode eleven of the 1980 TV series called Tenspeed and Brown Shoe, starring Jeff Goldblum as private detective, Lionel Whitney, and Ben Vereen as his con man partner, E.L. ‘Tenspeed’ Turner. Here are a few observances about this show.

      –Loved the opening which once again shows


      Tenspeed using his con artist skills to rope in business for the detective agency. He does it by placing an ad for a detective agency referral service. It lets him screen the clients. I thought it was a great idea and it made for a funny bit.

      –There’s a brief moment ...


      • when Lionel thinks he’s being deputized by a judge. He gets so virtuous and upright. He really loves the law, and that’s one of the good things about his character.

        –It’s one of the few shows that has had slow moments for me. I don’t know if it’s from bad comedy

        sections are just feeling like I’ve seen it. Actually, what is interesting to me is that these seem to happen in shows not directly worked on by creator Stephen J. Cannell. That includes this one which was not written by Cannell.

        The show has moments, but it’s in the bottom third in terms of favorites.
