Ironside: The Leaf in the Forest
24 February 2010 | by (Shetland) – See all my reviews

This is the second outing for consultant "Chief" Ironside ( not including the pilot).It is not one of the more memorable episodes; perhaps the cast are just finding their feet. The plot is pedestrian and the acting rather wooden.

The principal failure is the plot which fails to engage- principally because it fails to draw out the characters. The murderer's motives seem ostensibly plausible, but there is no sense in which we gain any psychological insight into the protagonist (vetern actor John Larch)and his motives.The episode title exercises only a tenuous link to the plot ( from a proverb apparently.The continuity seems to be contrived and there is little sense that it develops the plot or the characters. there are the usual shots of the paddy-wagon racing uptown but nothing really seems to come together.

The consummate eponymous Chief, Raymond Burr seems quite adrift in this rather slight plot and there is little for him to actually do.Fortunately, the series does improve and there is much to commend such a long and distinguished series.
