Ugghh!

While I love "Dragnet" and think it's a true classic, every so often they made an episode that just made me shudder with horror. "Public Affairs-DR-07" is clearly one of them. Instead of seeing Friday and Gannon stopping crimes or doing some investigating, here they are doing an on-air debate with a bunch of jerks--a battle of the hippies versus squares. And the problems are many with this bizarre show. It is so very, very talky. In addition, the people all seem like caricatures--not real people. On one side, they have the egg-head professor, hippie (Howard Hesseman) and obnoxious host and on the other, the two officers. And the audience is almost like one you'd see on "The Jerry Springer Show" or the old "Morton Downey Show". There are the gun enthusiasts, the angry Black Panther-like guy with an afro and a dashiki, the Mexican as well as the screaming idiots. It makes no sense why anyone would go on such a show that is so incredibly one-sided and stupid. Overall, a good episode to skip...or just to pretend never occurred in the first place. Yuck.
