Simon & Simon is a 1980s detective television series starring Gerald McRaney and Jameson Parker.

Originally a 1978 pilot called Pirate's Key set in Florida, when the show was picked up by CBS, the characters' home was changed from Florida to San Diego, California where the show's storyline remained for the course of its eight year run 1981 to 1989 on CBS.

The show was almost cancelled in 1982 before it was scheduled to run after Magnum, P.I. This brought its ratings up and allowed it to run for many years. Simon & Simon actually had a crossover with Magnum, P.I., on the Magnum double episode "Ki's Don't Lie" and in the Simon & Simon episode "Emeralds Are Not a Girl's Best Friend" (both in 1982).

The show revolves around polar opposite brothers Rick (McRaney) and A.J. (for "Andrew Jackson") Simon (Parker). Rick was a Vietnam United States Marine Corps veteran and had much more street sense, while A.J. went to college and had book smarts. Rick preferred things that were viewed by his brother as lower-class, like pickup trucks (Rick's Dodge Power Wagon is notable for its dull paint and large metal bumper used in one episode to crush the engine of a car), while A.J. took care of his money and could afford to be more fashionable (A.J. often drove a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, and later, a Chevrolet Camaro Z28). Rick lived on a boat in A.J.'s yard. A.J. preferred to first try to do things by the rules while Rick was much more of a free spirit, using a classic P.I. type of justice. Even their guns are different-Rick has a 357 Magnum and A.J. has a Colt Detective Special snub-nose.

The two went into business together, running a private detective service; the contrasting ways that the brothers went about their investigations and the subsequent conflicts between them provided much of the story each week, in addition to the plots of solving the cases. Although the premise in the series is that Rick is older and A.J. is younger, in fact McRaney and Parker were both born in year 1947 with only a 4 month difference.

Simon & Simon One Detective TV Series to Look Into

If you are fond of watching detective shows, you may want to consider watching the American detective TV series Simon & Simon. This particular TV series is starred by Jameson Parker and Gerald McRaney. The pilot episode was released in 1978 was then called Pirate's Key, which was set in Florida. As CBS took over the show, the characters’ then changed the setting from Florida to San Diego California. They stayed with this setting for eight years.

The story was merely concentrated on the Simon brothers; Rick which was portrayed by Mc Raney and Andrew Jackson also known as A.J. was portrayed by Parker. A.J. is the smart character who while Rick is the other brother who’s from the United States Marine Corps Vietnam veteran.

The brother were very opposite that Rick thing that whatever his brother looks at is of lower value while A.J. on the other hand knows the value of money and is a lot more practical in making his own expenses to be fashionable at least. Rick is the free spirited type of person while A.J. goes by the book. Their cars and guns are far different from each other.

Both of them had to do business together where they have to have their own private detective services however, they seem to have a lot of disagreements regarding their investigations and basically, the plot of the stories and solving cases revolves around this issue.

The show at the year 1982 had low rating and was to be cancelled because of that. Although, CBS thought of giving the show another chance and just tried moving the show into another slot and fortunately, Simon & Simon became a hit with at move. They were able to make some ratings from here for about a number of seasons. As it was then moved on Saturday nights at it later run the ratings then have dropped and there was only a commitment of thirteen episodes for that particular season in 1988. The series then had to be cancelled having a couple of episode not being aired anymore which includes the final episode until it was then into syndication.
