Storyline

A very successful mortician has a sideline robbing legitimate drug shipments--he waters them down and puts them in caskets destined for South America. Usually, his two squabbling associates carry out the robberies, but this time he's convinced by his wife to include her dull-witted brother, who goes on a daylight heist and murders a security guard. The associates kidnap McCloud at the Statue of Liberty and hold him for ransom in exchange for the brother. Written by Peter Harris

have a close look at the WTC towers
26 September 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This episode I didn't like at all. And that for just one reason, everybody is , again, typecast but this time the performances go a bit further. Just have a look at the scene in the hospital were we have Ralphie (Allen Garfield) going berserk against his lawyer.

The shoot outs also did look ridiculous but the way they used the camera was much better than in other episodes. Dennis Weaver (McCloud) does his best and is still believable. I can't say that it survived the time and is a bit outdated.

But there's more to see than only overreactions. Just have a close look when McCloud is taken the ferry towards Staten Island. The World Trade Center can be seen in various stages of construction. A completed North Tower and a partially constructed South Tower can be seen in the background. if you just look at episode one, there wasn't even a sight of the two towers.

You can't like all episodes and this is the one I didn't like. But McCloud is still a good series.
