Re: RARA-AVIS: Andy Barker, P.I.

Date: 16 Mar 2007

I managed to catch both. They both hold some promise although neither seems to know yet what exactly they want to be. I agree "Andy Barker, P.I." could use a little more tongue-in-cheek humour, and "Raines" certainly had a few bright spots (like the opening voice-over), but it seems like its trying to do too much all at once. Hopefully, with time, both will come into their own.

Best, Harry
