An odd title that says little about the show...
24 December 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Big Look" is an odd name for this particular episode of "Dragnet". I really have no idea why they called it this, although the word 'big' was in almost every title of the original 1950s series.

The show begins with Sergeant Friday (Jack Webb) and Officer Smith (Ben Alexander) going to visit the neighbor of a woman who was found badly beaten. This very strange and quirky neighbor tells the policemen about why she called in the report as well as what she saw. Unfortunately, the lady didn't really see that much and the police's number one suspect is the injured woman's husband since he has a record for violent behavior. However, soon there's a report of another woman nearby who was also beaten and robbed. This time, however, the woman has some idea what the guy looked like--and he had an odd scar next to his left eye. Naturally, when the man is caught he claims he's completely innocent--but the cops aren't about to believe this creep.

This is a rather average episode of "Dragnet" with very little to make it stand out one way or the other. Now this isn't really a bad thing, as an average episode of the series is still amazingly good for its time and it stands up pretty well.
