Simon & Simon is an American crime drama television series that originally ran from November 24, 1981, to September 16, 1989. The series was broadcast on CBS, and starred Gerald McRaney and Jameson Parker as two disparate brothers who operate a two-person detective agency in San Diego.
The show revolves around the decisively polar-opposite Simon brothers, Rick (McRaney) and Andrew Jackson/”A.J.” (Parker). Rick is the less-refined, but still pleasant, United States Marine Corps Vietnam War veteran with a penchant for cowboy boots, denim and four-wheel drive pickups. His brother, A.J. Simon, is a college graduate with a Wall Street look, a polished fellow with a taste for classic cars and tailored suits. A.J. was a practicing Catholic; Rick was not. Rick lived on a boat in A.J.’s waterfront property. A.J. preferred to follow the rules, while Rick was much more of a free spirit, using a classic P.I. type of approach. A.J. was blond with neatly combed hair while Rick was dark-brown haired with a receding hairline. Rick’s Dodge Power Wagon is notable for its dull paint and conspicuously large metal bumper/ramming device, used in one episode — “Love, Christy” (Season 1, Episode 2) — to crush the engine of a car. A.J. could afford to be more fashionable in his 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, and later, a customized Chevrolet Camaro Z28 or 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS convertible in the two-part episode, “Pirate’s Key”.
Together, the two brothers run a private investigator agency in San Diego, California during the 1980s; the contrasting ways in which the brothers go about their investigations and the subsequent personality conflicts between them provided much of the drama and comedy in each week’s episode.
Although Rick Simon is a few years older than A.J., McRaney and Parker were both born in 1947 and have only a three-month age difference.
