Not Your Usual Salesman
18 May 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Average episode, though Friday's skills as a no-nonsense, incisive interrogator are on extended display. A man is breaking into homes and robbing women inside, beating some for no apparent reason. Unfortunately the screenplay fails to explain why the beatings. Considering the meager sums of money involved, you have to question the robber's intelligence. Michael Ann Barrett gets a rather amusing turn as an officious housewife, while a sign of the times are the number of references to wrestling on TV, a staple of early programming. Note too, the rather obvious attempt to make the characters more realistic by putting bad grammar into the script-- something the well-spoken Friday and Smith are never guilty of.
