I could predict what would happen, but I still liked it very much.
24 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

One of the reasons I enjoyed seeing this episode of "Amazing Stories" is that it stars Max Gail as a cop--a REALISTIC cop, not the sort of guy he played on "Barney Miller". Gail did a nice job and the story was a nice tribute to hard working cops.

When the show begins, Officer Moore and his partner are on a call. The don't realize just how dangerous this will be and soon the partner is killed by a maniac. As a result, Moore blames himself and is not fit for duty. However, his boss lets him go out on traffic patrol anyway...and Moore is surprised to see he has a partner, a nice lady cop who ends up helping him through this crisis.

I knew the twist--and I assume many viewers will know the twist that occurs at the end. However, it's handled so well and is such a good episode that I didn't seem to mind. Well worth your time.
