    If ye could be any Private Dick…who would it be?,

    I bags Hardcastle and McCormick from the eighties, they had the coolest car ever…

    YouTube - Hardcastle & McCormick Intro
    Quarterpoundher gave me this idea from a different thread. Who would you choose as your top private dick?

    I'll go for the Sweeney. I don't remember Hardcastle and McCormick. It seems to have escaped me. Sounds a bit like Jake and the fatman

    Default Philip Marlowe!!

    Philip Marlowe the Bogart version in 'The Big Sleep'. Cool as Fuck!! and i quote:

    Vivian: You go too far, Marlowe.
    Marlowe: Those are harsh words to throw at a man, especially when he's walking out of your bedroom.


    *****


    General Sternwood: How do you like your brandy, sir?
    Philip Marlowe: In a glass.



    *****


    Philip Marlowe: She tried to sit in my lap while I was standing up.


    *****


    Norris: Are you attempting to tell me my duties, sir?
    Philip Marlowe: No, just having fun trying to guess what they are.


    *****


    Philip Marlowe: I collect blondes and bottles.


    *****


    Marlowe: You know what he'll do when he comes back? Beat my teeth out, then kick me in the stomach for mumbling.



    *****


    Philip Marlowe: You the guy that's been tailing me?
    Harry Jones: Yeah, the name's Jones. Harry Jones. I want to see you.
    Philip Marlowe: Swell. Did you want to see those guys jump me?
    Harry Jones: I didn't care one way or the other.
    Philip Marlowe: You could've yelled for help.
    Harry Jones: If a guy's playing a hand, I let him play it. I'm no kibitzer.
    Philip Marlowe: You got brains

    Keep outa tickling range of Magnum PI, I’d say he’d have you in Hospital with that Moustache.
    Hercule would be bearable, often wondered how Eva Braun must have suffered with Hitler, not because of him being a little “out there” but that ridiculous tache. How, when he was looking in the mirror shaving every day he avoided not just getting rid of it, is one of the great unanswered questions of history.

    Anyone remember Hawaii 5 0, like here the catchphrase was “Book em’ Dano” kinda like here

    Or Simon & Simon, two supposed brother PI’s in LA, Their mom must have put herself about a bit as they looked nothing a like, one a pretty boy blonde, the other a rough and ready bald cowboy type.

    I vaguely remember a program called TJ and the Bear, involved a Semi (Truck people, relax) the bear was a chimp??? wtf was that all about ?…

    Dempsey and Makepeace (Makepeace and Miss Marple, now there's a pack of M&M's that melt in you mouth & not in your hand …………………………..sorry where was I)

    Cagney and Lacey, (They sooooooo were, come on, we all know it)

    But the Mack Daddy of them all has to be Clint as Dirty Harry,

    “The question you have to ask yourself is, did he shot 5, or did he shot 6 times, well do ya feel lucky punk…do ya, go on, make my day”,

    God, I’d love to be able to say that sometime, actually that would make for a cool Escort slogan..

    I agree with Anons choice of Monk, he’s fantastic, brilliant quirky character, also love the Marlowe lines.

    No-ones picking modern sleuths though, are they no match, I do like life on Mars, I know its set in the past but I love the rough and ready cop.

    There was ri dic program in the 90's of a feela with an artic driving aimlessly round the nevada desert looking for wrongs to right, you name it and he had it in the lorry, even a helicopter.

    Default Oh lala!

    Remington Steel, Pierce before he filled out and got those adorable crinkles around the eye. Or let us go back and look at the father( or one of the first to take registering criminals seriously) of all detectives Vidocq(Click for more info)
    And of course we are all forgetting the most famous fictional gentlemen detectives of all time, who if the story is correct still receives mail at no 221b Baker Street! The one, the only MR. Sherlock Holmes, detective extraordinaire!
    Grisham for CSI! I love his one liners!
    Mac-CSI NYC
    Horatio-CSI Miami
    Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson from The Closer(Say this with the broadest Southern Accent you can muster- Ya'll)- Thank you very Much! And smile!
    I have too much space on my MAC!
    Haha you mean Vega$!!! too funny Dan Tanna was cute as hell!
    Oh in this vein- Crocker and Tubbs- Miami Vice! Now I don't know if these guys solved shit, but they looked good and knew where the party was happening.
