Moonlighting s1-2 – The Review Show 286

We watched the 1985 detective show Moonlighting, an early “dramedy” and legend in will-they-won’t-they romance. After a crooked accountant steals her money, former supermodel Maddie Hayes bets everything on her one remaining business asset, a small detective agency. She teams up with the goofy but effective PI David Addison, and the two bicker and flirt while solving a variety of odd crimes. We discuss the jarring shifts from poignant drama to screwball comedy, the receptionist who answers every phone call in rhyme, David bringing Chester Cheetah energy, romantic soft focus lenses, and a standout Christmas episode.
