How are you still alive?

(5 stars)

You reckless redheaded Irishman. I can't remember one episode that Mike is not seriously physically harmed in some way. He's knocked out almost every show. Yet he always gets up and has something smart-assy to say. Maybe it's all of the concussions he's suffered. Great show, great twists and storytelling.

The Hard Man Mike Shayne

(5 stars)

is like the cat with nine lives, always scrapping with some gangster ready to show him an alternative route. Great show pity theirs only a few of these episodes. 😉

Simply Great

(5 stars)

I don't think it gets any better than this show. Of course, you may have a favorite. But if you like the tough-guy detective in the first-person style, this show is for you. Jeff Chandler has a great voice, a great delivery. He makes Mike Sharne live, and live large. And alone. Often down-and-out, just living case to case. One of my favorites, and a great show to get the idea if you haven't heard Mike Shane before, is the Case of the Man Who LIved Forever. Great writing, acting, music stings, and pacing. In fact, perfect. Maybe not authentic NOLA, but perfect OTR. Yeah, I'd want Mike Shane on my case if I needed a two-fisted detective. You probably will, too.

A knock out

(5 stars)

No doubt about it, the episodes about the red haired detective are all very entertaining. The writers had a wide grasp of their task and produced some excellent tongue firmly in cheek humour. But all of this set in the basic life of Norleans as enjoyed by its humblest of citizens. Thanks for making these episodes available. They were a real tonic.

early episodes are great.

(3 stars)

I like the early episodes with wally maher. They were a blend of slight humor and hard boiled. With the chandler episodes i would rather listen to philip marlowe. Also, why wasn't the series set in miami? I enjoy the series overall.


(5 stars)

I loved this series and especially Glen Chandler's portrayal of Michael Shayne. It had really dramatic moments as well as some humour. If you like Private Investigators you will enjoy this.

(4.5 stars)

This one starts a little slow but quickly gets really good as the characters get comfortable in their roles. Great story lines with twists too.

Michael_Shayne_49-10-12_The_Phantom_Gun and Michael_Shayne_49-05-07_Case_Of_The_Man_Who_Lived_Forever are actually earlier episodes The last files has absolutely nothing to do with Michael Shayne.
