Storyline

Sgt. Joe Friday is called back from vacation to work with his partner, Off. Bill Gannon, on a missing persons case. Two amateur female models and a young war widow have vanished, having been last seen with one J. Johnson. In the course of tracking down Johnson and the young ladies, the detectives wind up with two different descriptions of the suspect, one of which closely resembles a dead body found in a vacant lot. But the dead man, later identified as Charles LeBorg of France, proves not to be J. Johnson, when a third young model disappears. Written by Michael J. Hayde <mmeajv@earthlink.net>

Classic Television!
11 January 2001 | by (Madison,TN) – See all my reviews

We need more shows like this on TV today to teach teens about the truth to drugs and guns. TV is and will always be a powerful medium, and it was nothing like Jack Webb and Harry Morgan to tell the straight dope on the truth. Today, the only ones who seem to watch this show are the ones who saw it the first time and nostalgists like myself. With a wry wit and a father's tone, Joe Friday always wanted to help and his partner Bill Gannon was little more than a sidekick but a best friend there to say, "Listen to him, son, he's telling you the truth." I just can't go a week without a reassurance from Joe. Someone thank TVLand for bringing this show back to where it belongs.
