25 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I let out that yell of delight because this episode represents a return to form during season 3. You see, while season 1 of "Dragnet" was great, starting in season 2 and increasing dramatically in season 3 they did episodes that were about a wide variety of rather mundane topics--showing the sorts of behind the scenes jobs detectives often do. So, all the great investigations in the field and apprehending criminals was rare by season 3. Instead, the shows took a turn towards propaganda (albeit, good propaganda)--with episodes about police morale, community relations, debates with drug users about legalization and the like.

This episode is great because Friday and Gannon are back in the field--investigating a theft. It seems that a computer with the local government has just discovered a case where a dead person has just begun receiving social security benefits! And, when they dig deeper, a pattern emerges--and there are LOTS of dead people who are getting checks! So, with a bit of investigating and attending a meeting of local landlords, the men get their culprits.

Overall, an interesting idea for a show and well worth seeing.
