It's a black thing....
6 December 2011 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

When Jack Webb was getting divorced from the GORGEOUS Julie London, he asked for ONE thing; his jazz records.

I LOVE Jack Webb, and, the starkness of the 60's episodes.

Every problem is black & white, and Jack's always ready - in a dead-pan monotone to explain EVERYTHING.

This episode , THE BIG PROBLEM (there are a LOT of episodes with the word 'big' in them) is about the racial issues.

Jack 'gets down' with the brothers, and explains that policing isn't a racial thing, but, is strictly driven by protecting people of every colour.

If you're a fan of Mr. Webb - and, I am - then, the simplistic script, the cue-card reading (and the ever-present angry Mr. Webb) will be no stranger to you, and, as always, you'll just groove along.

Compared to the legendary 'BLUE BOY,' and the 'Im sure you're mother had a loud bark' episodes - and the parents smoking pot, while their kid drowns in the tup, THE BIG PROBLEM doesn't equal the hysteria of those brilliant episodes, but, for sheer all-out Webb-isms, Incan NEVER argue with badge 714.
