Storyline

Friday and Gannon encounter Benjy "Blue Boy" Carver, an LSD user. Because of the then-lack of any laws against the use of LSD, they are unable to make a case against him, and Carver's parents are of no help. Finally, legislation is passed against LSD use and sale, but by then it may be too late for "Blue Boy". Written by Tony Scheinman

LS Delirious
2 August 2012 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

Too bad the Harry Morgan died with this show on his resume. I guess that "High Noon, All My Sons and Inherit The Wind" weren't good enough.

Show was almost fun to watch, but it was soooo stupid. It's a shame that the public believed the silly drivel of non-facts told in this episode.

Characters in program are having fun listening to music etc...but you can't have any fun on Dragnet. If you are, it must be against the law.

It was badly dated and irrevocably ignorant, but that was what this entire show was about - most of the time. And it is told to us in such a serious tone, that I couldn't stop snickering at this comic misrepresentation of LSD.
