These young amateur detectives share a passion for solving mysteries and a reputation for getting into – and out of – some scary situations. Former teen sensations Shaun Cassidy, Parker Stevenson and Pamela Sue Martin star as the brave super-sleuths in 14 spooky episodes loaded with spellbinding action and smash-hit ‘pop’ songs, including Shaun Cassidy’s chart topping success, “Da Doo Ron Ron”.

Law and Order Season 5 - £44.99 - Detective Mike Logan (Noth) and his dedicated colleagues investigate and prosecute some of New York’s most dangerous criminals in this factually based series.

Law and Order Special Victims Unit Season 3 - £44.99 – In the third season established cast members of Ice-T, Christopher Meloni, Stephanie March and Richard Belzer are joined by Mariska Hargitay as Detective Olivia Benson, devoted to putting away rape offenders on a regular basis - tough as nails on the outside but secretly falling apart on the inside.
Murder She Wrote Season 5 - £29.99 - This 6 disc set features 22 episodes that take TV’s most famous novelist turned investigator, Jessica Fletcher, from not-so-sleepy Cabot Cove to the dangerous bright lights of New York City and beyond.

The Rockford Files Season 4 - £34.99 - James Garner’s square-jawed private investigator, Jim Rockford, returns for 22 episodes of mystery on this 6-disc set.
Dream On Season 1 - £27.99 - Martin Tupper (Brian Benben), a recently divorced editor in New York with a teenage son, sees life in movies. Single and firmly on the dating scene, Martin dates a host of different women in an attempt to feel fulfilled in life, making sense of these up and down relationships in his head by visualising life as old black and white movies and TV clips.
Brought to life by legendary sitcom creator Marta Kauffman, this post-modern masterpiece of a sit-com is generally seen as the precursor to later TV smash hits such as ‘Friends’, ‘Veronica’s Closet’ and ‘Joey’.
This first season sees the three main characters Martin, his son, and his best friend TV host Eddy, interact in their different ways with a whole host of attractive female cameo guests. These include, among others, Mimi Rogers, Jennifer Tilly, Elizabeth Shue and Courtney Cox.
