Quotes

Charlie Paradise: You know what Flute was getting at, what his paintings meant.
Plotkin: Aren't they obvious? He was a surrealist, expressing his imagination without any conscience control, flinging his fantasies onto the canvas in a desperate attempt to astound himself.
Charlie Paradise: What was his fantasy? What did he see?
Plotkin: Inversion! Nature in reverse. Dead things alive; living things dead.

One of the Best episodes of Brenner!
13 August 2010 | by (seattle washington USA) – See all my reviews

This episode is so good that it could of been used as a spin off series. Charlie Paradise is such a strong character that he could of been a reoccurring character. If you like the Beat Generation of the 1950's you will love this episode. It deals with the killing of a painter that witnessed a killing and put a clue as to who the killer was in one of his paintings. This episode is my favorite one in the 15 episode set released by Timeless Media Group!

Brenner is the NYPD Blue of the late 1950's. With its real New York City locals and true to life story lines, it holds up even today. I happen to like this better than NYPD Blue. The Same problems existed then as today, Heroin, murder, rape, inner-police station politics. The Twist of this show is that Brenner and his son are both detectives for the same precinct. If you happen to find it on DVD and like cop shows or just good TV in general, pick it up, you will not be disappointed.
