It was a lovely moon and sky last night and it reminded me of my old absolutely favourite TV programme back in the day. Between 1985 and 1989 the actress Cybil Shepherd and a newcomer by the name of Bruce Willis starred in “Moonlighting’. A partnership between two private detectives, Madelyn “Maddie” Hayes (Shepherd) and David Addison Jr. (Willis) running the Blue Moon detective agency.   The show made use of fast-paced, overlapping dialogue between the two leads, harkening back to classic screwball comedy films such as those of director Howard Hawkes. These innovative qualities resulted in its being nominated, for the first time in the 50-year history of the Directors Guild of America, for both Best Drama and Best Comedy in the same year (both in 1985 and 1986). The plots were sometimes silly, but the pairing of Shepherd and Willis was magical and I don’t think I missed any of the 66 episodes, cried when it finished.  The theme song was lovely too.

    That really is a magnificent night shot, FR. Well done!
    I used to love ‘Moonlighting’ too. Just the right level of silliness, and a very smart script.
    Best wishes, Pete.
