All 23 Original One-Hour Episodes From The 1983/1984 Season

Explosions, bar fights, stakeouts, bikini-clad blondes, car chases and more explosions: Simon & Simon was prime-time 80s action at its best. Airing from 1981 to 1989, the series featured Gerald McRaney and Jameson Parker as private eyes Rick and A.J. Simon: a dueling sibling detective duo who, despite their differences in style, demeanor and just about everything in between, managed to thwart criminal activity in the pursuit of justice from week to week.

Season Three finds Rick and A.J. facing trouble again in beautiful San Diego, CA, on the trail of missing radio personalities, crooked magicians, gamblers, horse smugglers and murder… More >>

    Simon & Simon was a great show. I don’t think season 3 was any greater than 1 or 2 however. Tho shows are on the RTN network on cable TV and I’ve noticed the very earliest shows which I don’t remember watching when they first came out, have their own charm equal to the later ones, including different music and lead-in. AJ and Rick are younger and hairier in the first season, another point of interest. I found Tim Reid’s addition to the show kind of jarring, as his style is urban and tight, not laid back and loose like the Simons. Also having the police department around complicates the plots which were funnier when they involved competing detectives and no cops.

    I’m glad to hear that Simon & Simon’s 1983-84 Season is finally being released this Summer since Simon & Simon’s 3rd Season is even more upgraded than the first 2 seasons along with the fact that this is the season when Timothy Reid joins the cast & crew as Rick & AJ’s cop buddy from San Diego P.D.(Downtown Brown) to help the Simon brothers get inside information to help solve their cases just like Rockford(James Garner)had his often agitated cop buddy Detective Dennis Becker(Joe Santos) from the LAPD do on THE ROCKFORD FILES, which reminds me that Gerry McRaney had 4 guest starring appearances on THE ROCKFORD FILES back in the 1970’s before McRaney was even a star.

    In addition to that, Mary Carver(Cecilia Simon)has also made a guest starring appearance on THE ROCKFORD FILES in the “Dirty Money, Black Light” episode, so I’m almost surprised that Jameson Parker, Timothy Reid, nor Joan McMurtry(Lt. Abigail Marsh)have never been on THE ROCKFORD FILES since Rockford seemed to inspire this show in the early 1980’s.

    Another thing that was so cool and unusual about this private detective drama was SIMON & SIMON was probably the first and only private detective drama about 2 private investigators working together on cases instead of a private investigator working solo running a private detectives agency of his own as opposed to MAGNUM, P.I., THE ROCKFORD FILES, MANNIX, and MATT HOUSTON, since Rockford(James Garner), Magnum(Tom Selleck), Mannix(Michael Connors), and Houston(Lee Horsley)were all private investigators that mostly worked solo and usually had a cop buddy in the police department, except SIMON & SIMON was a private detective show about 2 brothers Rick(Gerry McRaney) and AJ(Jameson Parker)who not only investigated cases together, but were also 2 brothers who were like oil & water that also ran a private eye agency together as well, unlike Rockford, Magnum, Houston, and Mannix.

    SIMON & SIMON was also the first and probably only private detective drama to be filmed in San Diego instead of L.A. or New York too since SIMON & SIMON was the first show that I know of that was ever filmed in San Diego on top of that.

    This season also takes me all the way back to memory lane to when SIMON & SIMON was on CBS every Thursday night at 9PM after MAGNUM, PI was at 8PM since they were both part of CBS’s Thursday night line up from the Fall of 1982 through the Summer of 1986.

    This season also takes me all the way back to memory lane to when CBS’s motto was “We’ve Got The Touch” and to my childhood days of living in the Imperial Valley since I was 11 years old in the 5th grade at Desert Gardens Elementary School when this season was running on CBS.
