Another Great Episode, Thanks Guys
4 May 2007 | by (Fahaheel, Kuwait) – See all my reviews

This episode goes back to the "beat" episode where the guys take on several calls. There's a movie star appearance here, Harry Dean Stanton is a low life trying to get arrested to get more welfare for his low life family. Funny now that I think about it but welfare in a family with 5 kids often resulted in NON marriage, people will find a way to scam. Good scene were Reed is telling a college friend who is now an executive type to turn down the noise in his company party. The condescending looks he gets are very true to life. Once again Adam 12 delivers, no guns fired, or burglaries committed, or drug busts happen, but somehow the show stays entertaining based on regular peoples interactions. 8 of 10 episode, 10 of 10 show.
