Virginia Gregg is back!
15 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Virginia Gregg is back once again on "Dragnet" and she is definitely in her element playing an obnoxious and morally suspect lady. Overall, in the 1950s and 60s versions of the show, she appeared in 16 different episodes--mostly playing rather horrible people. Because they so often gave her these juicy roles, I look forward to her being in the show.

This episode finds Friday and Gannon investigating some robberies of so-called 'royal jade'--the finest and most expensive jade in the world. How anyone could possibly sell these items is beyond me.

One report of stolen jade was valued at $200,000 but the detectives were a bit confused by the crime. While it was obvious that someone had tried to break in the house, the evidence appeared to indicate that the robbery may have been staged. The insurance investigator sure was suspicious but it was up to Friday and Gannon to figure it all out and get the culprits.

Overall, aside from Ms. Gregg's performance, there isn't all that much to recommend the show one way or the other. It isn't bad, but it also isn't all that great either--just a decent episode and that's all.
