There are no winners in this sad episode...
26 December 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Big Hate" is one of the most sad and pointless episodes of "Dragnet" that I have seen. There are no winners here--just losers.

The show begins with a guy named Gordon being discovered holding the body of an older woman in his arms. He initially talked a bit to the police, but when Smith and Friday get involved, Gordon has shut down completely and will say nothing other than that he killed her. Because the guy wouldn't talk, Friday calls his family and the story then comes out--the dead woman and Gordon were in love but his family was against it. It wasn't just the age different--the older woman was a chronic alcoholic.

If you watch this one, you'll find out what's next--how the woman died as well as what ultimately happened to Gordon. It ain't very pretty--very sad and pointless. But, such is life. Just don't watch this one if you're feeling depressed! Well done but so sad.
