Mostly average, but the great dialog makes this one a standout
15 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Gannon and Friday investigate the theft of $100,000 worth of furs. Oddly, the people who burglarized the place knew their furs very well--stealing only the most expensive merchandise in the store--as well as a delivery van. Later, when someone approaches an insurance agent about buying some furs, the agent calls the police and gives them this lead. The detectives ask the agent to tell the guy selling furs that he was interested--and Gannon poses as a fur buyer to catch the crooks. The scene where the furrier teaches him about furs is pretty funny--and one of the highlights of the show. It's also pretty exciting watching Gannon and Friday with the crooks trying to arrange a buy--the dialog is very snappy and reminiscent of Film Noir.

In most ways this is a very ordinary and somewhat average episode. However, because the dialog was handled so well (with a few laughs), it is a standout and worth seeing.

As CC pointed out in another review, it's interesting how times have changed. Nowadays because of PETA's campaign, owning furs has lost a lot of its luster, so the episode seems a bit dated.
