Storyline

Mick and Joey Barrett are brothers who like to spend their time surfing. However, it doesn't pay the bills, so they offer their services to whoever needs it and occasionally get involved with all sort of adventures. In the first season, they worked primarily for Gordon, a man who used to work for the government and who's the godfather to the daughters of numerous important individuals. So occasionally, one of his god-daughters is in trouble, or someone he knew from days of government service needs something done, so he sends Mick and Joey to help them and he occasionally leaves a detail which usually involve danger, because of this they are reluctant to do the job most of the time but in the end they always do the job. In the second season, they own a surf shop in Santa Monica, and they run into people who need help or someone they know needs their help. During the third season, they closed their surf shop and were offered a job by an old friend of Mick's, who's a bail-bondsman in ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

this is the best televsion show i have ever seen!!!

Rick Springfield and Yannick Bisson are super stars in this show they are private investigators and they help people when they are in trouble. They either help a friend or a friend's loved one who is in trouble or people that Bobo Dibella puts them onto, they go places that the police cant and people will talk to them that will never talk to the police. In the first series they work for a guy called Gordon who pays them to help is god daughters and a few other people that are in trouble, in the second series they own a surf shop, in the third series they help out jay Cassidy he is an ex cop and now owns a bail bond place and he gets Mick and joey to help find criminals. I really admire this television series and i give it 10 out of 10 because this show rules!!!
