This show was always on in my area, but I never watched a single full episode. Mostly just the opening and the many endings, as I remember it being on before the various monster movies on the weekends. It just never interested me, even after I discovered Raymond Burr was in Godzilla, King of the Monsters! and was Perry Mason.
Since I've discovered this Me-TV station I've been watching the show and quite enjoying it. Great writing, great casting and even great direction. Add to that many young guest stars make it a lot of fun to watch. I think we've just moved into the second season now.
