  2. Haggard

    Haggard

    Squire Haggard, the womanising, destitute former friend of the Prince of Wales, optimistically searches for rich men "willing" to part with their money, and rich, beautiful women willing to part with their virtue. His handsome son, Roderick, a typical Regency Buck, falls in love very easily, and the objects of his desire just happen to be very beautiful Ladies of Quality, who are heiresses to large fortunes. Squire Haggard, desperate to restore the family fortune, often uses his son in his 'get rich, quick' schemes - however, Roderick's foolishness usually brings his father's schemes undone. Their sly underhanded servant, Grunge, despises his 'put upon' position in life and, through guile and other means, has actually been able to acquire more wealth than his master. This money, however, is often at stake through the Squire's involving Grunge in his plots.

  6. The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo

    The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo

    Sheriff Lobo's the corrupt sheriff from Orly County who appeared in several episodes during the first season of B.J. and the Bear (1978), as B.J.'s occasional nemesis. He now stars in his own series. He is not as corrupt as he was on B.J.'s show, but he is still trying to make a buck by cooking up schemes or hoping to be given the reward money for property he recovers or criminals he apprehends. He is foiled either by the bumbling antics of his deputy, Perkins, or the integrity of his other deputy, Birdie Hawkins. During the show's second season, the naive Governor, who was visiting Orly, was impressed by Lobo's unorthodox methods, appoints him to his crime fighting task force and sends Lobo, Perkins, and Birdie to Atlanta. Now the chief of detectives, whom Lobo reports to, is incredulous as how Lobo can help him, especially after meeting Perkins, so he doesn't assign them to anything important. So Lobo has to steal or grab a case on his own and hopes that the Chief will be impressed. Hildy, the chief's secretary, doesn't think that Lobo can do any good, but offers help if it means that she can go out into the field. About the only support they get is from Brandy and Peaches, two ambitious detectives, who occasionally work with Lobo, although they're more interested in snagging the credit for themselves.

    Tom Chance's life is plagued by coincidences. Even his initial meeting with his beloved Alison happened by pure chance - when he went to a local pub to meet another girl (also called Alison) for a 'blind date'. As this was the same pub that Alison had arranged to meet her cousin, Tom Chesney, for the first time since they were both children, it was a coincidence waiting to happen! Tom Chance's frequent brushes with coincidences also lead to his being continually arrested by police for crimes he did not commit, with the result that the Police Sergeant finally issues instructions, to his force, *not* to arrest Tom - even when faced with the most compromising of circumstances involving Tom.
