THE HOME VIEW – Moonlighting: The Complete Series

The TV show revived the career of actress Cybill Shepherd and made a star of little-known actor Bruce Willis. The premise was quite simple: Shepherd’s Maddie Hayes is a former model who loses pretty much everything except ownership of Blue Moon Detective Agency. She meets the staff, including Willis’ wisecracking detective David Addison, and not long after, is involved in the agency’s cases. Back in the late eighties Moonlighting became must-watch TV, with viewers everywhere waiting to see if and when Maddie and David would finally go beyond, well, let’s say, work colleague status. This comedy drama was full of sharp dialogue, sexual tension, romance, and lots of laughs. Now, almost 35 years after the last original episode aired, comes the release of the entire series, remastered in HD, with the original Grammy-nominated title track recording by Al Jarreau. Moonlighting is available now on all major digital retailers, including Prime Video, Apple TV, and Vudu.
