      Tenspeed and Brown Shoe: Savage Says: “There’s No Free Lunch” is the second regular episode of this detective drama, which is really a comedy in drama’s guise, that stars Ben Vereen and Jeff Goldblum.

      Here are a few observances about this hour of entertainment which, by the way, was both written and directed by Stephen J. Cannell.

      –A negative for me is that this is the


      second straight romance for Goldblum’s Lionel Whitney character. I wished they hadn’t even tried to delve into this and instead just focused on watching two quirky characters (Tenspeed and Brown Shoe) do their stuff. The only good part is that these romances aren’t full blown ‘I’m in love forever and now my heart is broken’ things. They are romances, very stereotypical,

      • but not that intense kind.

        –One of the fun things are about Goldbum’s Whitney is that he’s a black belt in karate. He always announces the fact and then when he fights, he lets out with all kinds of funny sounds. It makes it very amusing.

        –They didn’t really resolve the side story, which had to do with Vereen’s Tenspeed character having been tracked

        down from a couple of guys he’d run out of (with some loot) several years ago. This is used more as a comic relief element and it ends on yet another altercation. I didn’t get that or why Cannell didn’t follow through and give us a more complete ending.

        Denny Miller and Janice Heiden guest starred in this episode and overall it was very enjoyable.
