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.
