An interesting tale about a torch...
8 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Anthony Zerbe and Richard Carlson star in "The Torch"--a show about arson. Cannon is investigating a recent case of arson--one in which a woman is burnt to a crisp. To help him is a professional arson investigator and their trail heads to a man known as "the Doc" (Zerbe). This is great for Cannon's client, as the man is seen as the primary suspect (Carlson). However, in the process, Cannon doesn't realize that he's the next possible victim.

"The Torch" is another excellent episode of "Cannon"--a series I never watched when it was originally shown on TV, but which can be seen on DVD today. Like a typical episode, Cannon is a tough, brawling guy who loves fine food and drink--and manages to solve the crime by the end of the episode. And, in this one, he shows off his considerable talents by rescuing someone just moments before they, too, are incinerated. Overall, worth watching an interesting.
