Bill and Joe check into a hotel, and...
29 March 2012 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

When Joe and Bill check into a hotel to investigate a 'vice office' scam, it seems they're magnets for EVERY problem possible.

Bill checks into the Elsinore Hotel, to follow up on a complaint from a visiting business man. He said that a woman came into his room,followed shortly by two men claiming to be vice cops. They say the woman's a known prostitute.

They tell the man he needs to stay in town to testify. Then they say if he's willing to pay for some 'upfront bail,' he can go.

Bill checks in, because, as Bill says, he 'looks' married, and Joe doesn't.

Within short order of checking in, the hotel's security officer comes in, and says that he (Bill) 'seems suspicious,' due to other guests' complaints.

They tell the security officer they are cops, and then (Bill) spends time loitering around the bar and lobby looking for trouble.

The bartender tells Bill about a high-stakes poker game.

As they're about to go to that room, there's a knock at Bill's door.

It's a woman in nighties and a fur, saying she was in her room, and was woken by an intruder.

Within a minute, there's another knock, and, guess who it is: the 'vice cops.'

As typical of the Dragnets from the 60's series, the episode starts with Bill giving Joe a lecture. This time, about sugar cubes.

It's not on of Dragnet's best, but, for the trail of trouble that follows these two, I'll say it's OK.
