Great iconic drama that was light crime drama, unlike todays dramas that are heavy on blood and violence where you need to watch every week. Robert Urich was great in this role along with all his costars! great plots laced with Bart Braverman’s (BINZER) humor and the toughness of Greg Morris (Captain Nelson). First season episodes featured Two Leaf ( the tall Indian actor from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”), Tony Curtis, and eye candy Judy Landers ( who ended marrying DODGER relief pitcher Tom Niedenfeur, and still looks great today with 2 grown daughters). I love the back drop of Vegas and looking at the strip back then when there was the hotel with the giant “SLIPPER” on it next to the Frontier. And looking at who was hot back then by looking at the hotel’s giant marquee signs. Popular Vegas entertainers would appear regularly like Wayne Newton and more. One episode featured Maureen McCormick (Brady Bunch) as a female tennis player with Robert Reed as her DAD ! Another starred a runaway teen played by Terri Nunn who later become a singing star for the New wave group, “Berlin.” But my favorites were the ones with Dan Tanna in peril – blindness in one and addiction in another! You’ll notice that after Judy Landers left after season 1 that Bea ( Phyllis Davis) got all sexy on the show. She was rumored to be dating Dean Martin or some other big names in town when the series was filming. And Robert Urich and Bart Braverman would appear as themselves on “Password Plus” with Allan Ludden for a week! Before this became a series , Robert Urich made a TV pilot with Tom Selleck called “Bunco” that didn’t get picked up! then we got “VEGAS” and “MAGNUM PI!” The VEGAS pilot is not here but if you get to see it, there were many changes made to the series! Greg Morris” Captain character had a different name, and the main hotel was the “MAXIM”,not the “DESERT INN.’
