Friday and Gannon go back to school...
22 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this installment of "Dragnet", Friday and Gannon are working at the police academy training female cadets. In the midst of this routine, they are informed that a hot-shot writer is coming to do a story about the academy for some fancy magazine. The trouble is that this reporter (Virginia Gregg) is an angry lady who loves digging up dirt and doesn't happen to like the police. So it's tough sailing for Friday. What ends up making this tougher is that the reporter singles out one woman from the academy to feature in the article. The reason this is tough is not because the woman isn't qualified--she's among the best they've got. But, she's engaged to a big butt-head who doesn't like cops and he's pressuring her to resign.

This is yet another of a long, long string of episodes from the 2nd and 3rd season that don't focus on criminals but on showing the wide gamut of roles the police have. While this is very informative, it also occasionally gets a bit dull compared to the excitement of the first season. This one is worth seeing but also comes off as a bit unreal. However, it is certainly fun to watch Gregg--as she so often ended up playing the nastiest characters on the show.
