Pie in the Sky - Season 1


Henry Crabbe is a detective inspector who gets shot in the line of duty, following which he wants to retire to open a restaurant--the titular Pie in the Sky--as cooking, especially of good English-styled cuisine with a modern twist, is his passion in life. However, standing in his way of this dream is his boss, Assistant Chief Constable Freddy Fisher, who refuses to issue a full retirement pension because of an incident in which Henry was shot has raised some questions about Henry's police conduct. In reality, Freddy knows that Henry is innocent of any impropriety, but he uses this only as a reason to keep Henry, Freddy's "brains," on the force: Henry does all the brain work, Freddy gets all the glory. However, Freddy does allow Henry to work on a part-time or on-call-as-needed basis (i.e. whenever Freddy is in a jam, which is always) while the shooting incident is investigated. This leaves the possibility of a full pension in the future if Henry is cleared, but in the meantime, it also allows Henry to open his dream restaurant with all this extra time he has on his hands. Because of Henry's position on the police force, the restaurant is on paper owned by Henry's accountant wife, Margaret, on whom good food is wasted.

Henry balances his police force and restaurant life, the latter of which is populated partially by ex-cons working in his kitchen.... Show more


Pie in the Sky - Season 1 - amazing tv show from 1994 year. The term 'best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as 'the best' may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest tv series ever made. I was so emotionally destroyed that I ended up watching it three times, whole tv show online in the web, almost at once. The main actor plays extremely suggestively, naturally and emotionally. His creation is undoubtedly one of the best in this tv series and also one of the best in the actor's career. Rich dialogues, which are the essence of this tv series, excite, especially in the context of these days boring productions. It's definitely a tv show worth to watch. You can see this tv show on Stream-Planet.com for free.... Show more
