A PI Saved Is a PI Earned

If you watch the pilot ep of "Andy Barker" online, you'll find out that Andy takes over the office of Lew Staziak, Private Investigator.

I gotta say I was kind of disappointed. I expected to see a detective agency with a really cool name. Or some obscure reference I could figure out. And all I got was a person's name.

Mike Hammer and Eddie Drake have agencies named after them; so I shouldn't have been too surprised to simply see a person's name.

Then there's "Riptide," "Hawaiian Eye" and "Psych," where the series name is also the name of the PI firm.

And that brings us to this week's trivia question. Can you match each detective agency with its series?
