Three cheers for Virginia Gregg!!
15 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show is the first appearance in the 1960s version of "Dragnet", though she also appeared in the original DRAGNET movie as well as the 1950s series of the same name. I note this because she was rather ubiquitous on the shows--appearing in eight episodes in the 60s version and 10 in the 50s version, but always playing rather intense and interesting characters. Here, in one of her most normal roles, she plays the clerk at a candy store that was robbed. I always enjoyed her on the show and it was nice to see her once again.

This episode is about a string of robberies occurring at local candy stores. Oddly, despite the police's best efforts, they are having a hard time catching a suspect. And, even more oddly, once they catch one, the robberies do NOT stop! What gives? See this one and find out for yourself.

Overall, a pretty typical episode for the series--neither particularly good or bad. But at least you get to see the first appearance of Ms. Gregg in this newer Dragnet incarnation.
