Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
This impeccable A&E production incorporating the Rex Stout characters took to the air in March 2000 with The Golden Spiders, a movie directed by Bill Duke (and included on this DVD set) that proved popular enough to bring back as a series the next year. This box set includes the sixteen shows that constituted the show's second season, airing from April to August, 2002. Maury Chaykin and Timothy Hutton return as the titular, reclusive crime solver and his streetwise right-hand man, Archie Goodwin. In the two-part "Death of a Doxy," Archie discovers a dead body at a friend's apartment; in "The Next Witness," Wolfe is called to testify at a murder trial, but does some snooping of his own on behalf of the defendant; "Die Like a Dog" finds Archie discovering a dog that may hold the key to a murder; Archie is framed for murder in "Murder is Corny"; in the two-part "Motherhunt," Archie and Wolfe are hired to find the mother of an abandoned baby; Wolfe hunts down the murderer of a film producer in "Poison a la Carte"; in "Too Many Clients," the two-parter focuses on a man who, after hiring Archie, turns up dead; "Before I Die" revolves around a gangster, his daughter, and blackmail; Wolfe's work in convicting a military criminal haunts him in "Help Wanted, Male"; a federal official is murdered in the two-part (and shown in widescreen) "The Silent Speaker"; a New York City cop is killed in "Cop Killer"; and in the final episode of the season, "Immune to Murder," Archie finds a body during a meeting between an ambassador and an oilman. The set also includes: cast bios, filmographies, and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
