I agree. It's been 15 years since I saw that, but I remember it as being great, and Boothe being a great Marlowe, big and solid and cynical. Looking it up at the IMDB shows six of eleven episodes are out on a videotape set in North America. Worth seeing by anyone with money to burn or a library that carries them.
