Not exactly HARD rock...
29 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with some goons chasing a guy (John Vernon) who is out of his mind. When they capture him, they dope him up with even more of the stuff that made him so goofy.

In the next scene, Frank Cannon is being hired by Raymond Thurston (Fritz Weaver) to help figure out who the guy is in the opening scene. It seems that Thurston's incredibly strange niece, Dawn, discovered the man and has adopted him--sort of like a pet! But the guy is STILL out of his mind and Cannon can't get any information out of him. After a bit of digging, Cannon figures out that the guy is a smuggler. Here is the kicker, Uncle Raymond knew this all along--and Cannon is being used by him. What's next? See the show.

While this is a decent enough episode, two things stand out. The character of Dawn (Charlotte Stewart) is hard to understand--she is just so weird and difficult to understand. Second, while the show is called "HARD Rock Roller Coaster", there really is nothing hard about the rock you'll hear in this one--just a couple Crosby, Stills & Nash covers indifferently executed. Watchable overall but not a lot more than that.
