Sam (Mary Tyler Moore) the switchboard operator's legs and hands were all that were ever seen of her on-camera during this series. Moore's voice was heard on the soundtrack, but her face was never revealed. See more »
I vividly recall loving this show as a little kid in the late 1950s, so much, that I wished my name was "Richard". Then recently I noticed the full episodes were on YouTube and delved in. I am astounded how great this show is, and can understand why my entire family loved this show 60 years ago!
The script, the dialog, the acting, the directing, the action, the music, the camera work, and the lighting....all are superb and infinitely better than any junk on TV in the last 25 years! The excellent writing is able to pack an incredible story and resolution into 24 minutes...just amazing!
David Janssen's portrayal of Richard Diamond is outstanding; smart, tough, clever, with a boyish grin that gets him information that others may not get. He displays a believable sensitivity to the unfortunate, but like most of us, is a sucker for a pretty face!
I have made it through the entire two seasons, and it was the most enjoyable shows I've watched in decades. I plan on watching all four seasons in order, and highly recommend this series.
