What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Maddie Hayes (Cybil Shepard), a wealthy former model, discovers one morning that her business manager has stolen all the money she has in the bank. However, it turns out that she still owns some non-liquid assets -- money-losing companies which were maintained as tax write-offs -- one of which is a detective agency run by David Addison (Bruce Willis). Maddie meets with him to inform him that the company is to be shut down, but he persuades her to keep it open by convincing her that the detective agency can make money. Maddie becomes David's new boss and accompanies him on adventure after adventure. While their personalities clash, a sexual tension arises in the time they spend together. But the question always remains... will they or won't they?

Last note, would have liked 1 or 2 more extras to be included in the set (perhaps they are being saved for future DVD releases). Also, would have liked to have seen Cybil and Bruce be in the same room at the same time when they were being interviewed to see if they still HATE each other. :)
Glenn Gordon Caron is the genius behind the series, and the writing, at least for the first few years of the five-year run was like nothing to ever hit television before or since.
Bruce Willis shows himself to be a fearless and talented newcomer, a smart, witty and gorgeous charmer in his character of David Addison. He was truly the spark to the explosive Moonlighting mania that occured in the mid-80's.
Cybil Shepherd, known as a supermodel-turned-adequate actress found a vehicle able to present her considerable physical assests but also surprised viewers with quieter comedic skills that proved her Maddie Hayes a perfect counterpart to Willis' manic humour.
Rumoured to dislike Willis, it is all the more admirable to see the sparks fly between these two actors and heat up as the series progresses. The sexual tension is palpable, and the innuendos and double-entendres peppered throughout the scripts are fresh and hilarious, reminiscent of the old Hollywood days when Tracy and Hepburn emoted with well-written banter and snappy come-backs. NOBODY was better at fast-paced, sizzling dialogue than Willis and Shepherd.
Moonlighting was one of those shows where everyone talked about last night's episode at the water cooler, at the lockers, at the hair salon. Can you think of another one-hour detective show that could throw in their version of Shakespeare's "Taming Of The Shrew" with Bruce Willis singing The Rascal's "Good Lovin'" riding a horse wearing shades...and make it WORK???Read more ›

Such an original show! Very different in its dialogue. Endearing receptionist character, and very funny slapstick scenes such as the one with the lady in the lace mask and the... Read morePublished on May 8 2013 by Jane Kline
