Memorable episode
26 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one several episodes that sticks in my mind, even years after I've seen it. I noticed it in the TV listings and made a point to catch it recently.

The first 2/3 of the episode is pretty average, even a little below average. But their final segment is a masterpiece. I never know who to credit these special episodes to, either Jack Webb or Cinader, or who. The touch is lighter than Jack's, but it has that Jack Webb flavor.

The final segment involves Reed and Malloy investigating a noise complaint that quickly turns into an attempt to rescue a little girl from a backyard pool, at night, by flashlight. Very hard to describe adequately, as most Adam-12 episodes are. But sometimes they are miniature masterpieces, and this is one of them.
