The video release, "Magnificent Thief," is the series' premiere episode, "A Thief Is A Thief Is A Thief," expanded from filling a 90 minute time slot with commercials, to 99 minutes by itself. Why it was distributed to TV stations this way instead of being made a two-parter for the unusually-small-as-it-was syndicated rerun package is a mystery. See more »
I, for one, would really like to see this series on DVD and I would buy it yesterday! Back then, I was a fourteen year old, eighth grade girl in love with Al Mundy, or Robert Wagner, or RJ, or all of the above. I agree with all the previous writers concerning how exciting a show this was and they must have had a good size budget to film in all those exotic places instead of a Hollywood studio. The acting was tremendous and the guest stars were very good as well. With all the other sub-prime shows on television now, why can't they bring back shows that are exciting and fun to watch. I think I will try and write TV Land and see if they would re-re-run the episode they re-ran this past summer - - Darn, I missed it. But, in the meantime, does anyone know if the DVD's on the internet are legit? Thanks for helping.
