Nero Wolf (Maury Chaykin), an eccentric orchid loving brilliant detective with a taste for fine cuisine, and his assistant: Archie Goodwin (Timothy Hutton), live in luxury in a brownstone in 1950's New York. Nero Wolf solves extremely difficult crimes while rarely leaving his mansion, relying on the footwork of Goodwin to gather his evidence. Wolf's rates are expensive, but his well-heeled clients are very eager to pay. The episodes are done in repertory, with an ensemble of actors each playing different characters in any particular episode.Written by

[Wolfe fakes a nervous breakdown for Dr. Vollmer]
Do you want to pay two dollars a pound for butter? Fifty cents for shoestrings? A dollar for a bottle of beer? Hmph. Well? Confound it, answer me!
I don't know if it's the willies or what, but as you can see -
Just because I ask you to lend me five dollars until the beginning of the next war, does not mean that I'm a frugal person.
Who wrote this script for him?
It's been like this ever since I brought him home.
He's been out of the house?

How could they Cancel Nero Wolfe. Starring Timothy Hutton as Archie Goodwin the assistant to the Famous Nero Wolfe played by Maury Chaykin. The plots are Fantastic I have never seen a Nero Wolfe I didn't like, Archie is hilarious when he annoys the Wolfe and Wolfe would never want to get rid of Archie because he is the best assistant. The characters are very well rounded and very versatile. The regular characters like Lon Cohen and Saul Panzer are very intriguing. I bought the box sets and just wish that I could see new ones every week. I recommend all of you TV watchers out there that like Detective Shows watch this they should be available on A&E every now and then or even at your local video store but it is well worth it.
