    It's like in that Quantum Leap episode "Play It Again, Seymour". I don't think it's a film noir category, is it? It's about (depression-era, I think) P.I.s with smooth jazz music in the background, having an office and narrating the story usually. Does this type of thing have a name, and could someone give me some examples of this kind of story?

    Thanks.


Yes, it would be film noir they were paying homage to here. They were probably referencing Humphrey Bogart movies like The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep.
