The Very Best Episode of the Entire Series
7 September 2012 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Biker dude on a Nighthawk motorcycle speeds along highways outside Los Angeles looking to get flagged by the highway patrol for speeding. After he is pulled over he challenges the cops to impromptu wild west-style quickdraw showdowns and kills them using silicone coated bullets.

Loose cannon Los Angeles cop Sgt. Rick Hunter (Fred Dryer) and partner Sgt. Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer) investigate and trace the motive back to a country western bar and a wild west-style quick-draw video game which a few patrons take a little too seriously.

When using Dee Dee as bait to flush out the suspect fails Hunter decides to use himself as bait and a showdown is on.

The plot-line is one that could have fit with pretty much any cop show and served as an intriguing episode but this is the series that shot it and made it fit so well with its own formula. The Hunter character was like a modern day wild west lawman and this episode reflects that so perfectly.

The fantastic cartoonish performance given by character actor Steve Sandor makes this episode worth watching all the more. Sandor was the type of actor who might be seen in Bronson/Eastwood vigilante action movies and was thus an impeccable casting choice who fit the formula perfectly.

This is the very best episode of the entire series even though the original music which featured impeccable use of "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones was replaced by a different track which does not fit with music intended to compliment "Sympathy for the Devil" Hunter famously had a habit of physically abusing suspects of African-American, Asian and Latino persuasion. He also had a habit of physically abusing anyone who was a little different. In this episode that includes a 240 pound Black transvestite purse snatcher named Rufus. McCall for her part criticizes Rufus for stealing purses that don't match his pink sequined evening gown.
