This series took a staple element of the detective genre - mismatched partners, and added the twist that they were brothers. Instead of setting it in a classic location for a detective series (NY, LA, Chicago), they took the 90 minute drive down the coast to the beautiful city of San Diego. What they found was a gold mine. Instead of the tired cliche locations, they banked on the little seen but widely known attractions of San Diego. The chemistry between the male leads was wonderful, the relationship they had developed as brothers was very believable, the dialogue was great. This show the right combination of comedy and drama. There was a strong supporting cast. The acting is stellar in most cases, there were good story lines, and the show didn't take itself too seriously. Simon and Simon showed just enough of the mundane side of the investigation business to keep it believable.
The 80's - they were the time for P.I. shows. And Simon & Simon was right there. This two brother could not be much different, in almost any aspect of their lives and the way they approached a case. I do remember that I did like Rick better, as he was a fearnaught, a cowboy with the macho talk and the "yeps" "nopes" and his brother A.J. was the smooth talker, clean and elegant. So if you are into the 80's and did like Miami Vice or Riptide, then S&S is more than recommendable.
