one of the stronger episodes from season one
27 September 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I figured it out this time, just like McCloud. There's something weird going on with the box they sell over in Europe. First of all, you only can find season 1 and 2, together in one box. The other 5 aren't anywhere to find for example in Belgium. The titles are all different then those appearing on us sites. The time stated is very strange for episodes, over on region 2 DVD's they clock in at 72 minutes but I knew how it was all possible. They combined two US episodes in one for Europe. So here we have it, Murder Arena is a compilation of Walk In The Dark and The Concrete Corral.

This time McCloud is send by his boss Clifford to a female division of cops. of course he think that it all is a big mistake but soon his leading officer he falls in love with. In fact, he's the playboy of the police squad. If you know that two episodes collide in one you can spot it sometimes towards the editing. But this episode did really work. The two stories fit perfectly into one even as Walk In The Dark is over after 55 minutes. It's the weaker part here, but The Concrete Corral really works out fine. If you are used with McCloud then he's really doing fine again here and do figures it out in his own manners.

This time not that much few over old New York. But the way they shot a few scene's is really beautiful. The way they shot McCloud standing on a train with Empire on the horizon is really nice. It's again low on everything but it do works.
