I always felt "Johnny Staccato" to be a disappointment. I remember it 
being sold for its jazz content, but that content was minimal--usually 
the musicians were well in the background, and and the main character's 
over-emoting was too much to take. In one episode, Harry Guardino's 
tenor sax playing was the worst I've encountered until Robert DeNiro's 
in "New York, New York". I used to watch it every week, just in case the 
jazz content improved, but it never did.
