The computer Crockett uses is an Amiga 1000. The same model was used in several episodes throughout season 4. Later it was replaced by an Amiga 2000. See more »

20 minutes in, I shut this garbage off.
15 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Yet another mail-it-in episode with an evil bad guy, helpless victim and host of other corny, one-dimensional archetypes. The writing on this is so thin, Karen Carpenter would have been envious. I really don't understand how MV could produce so many of these worse than bad episodes that could have only appealed to the dumbest of dumb audiences. Then again, the show only cracked the top 10 in ratings once (#8 for season 2), so maybe the audiences (like myself now) were so insulted by these bottom feeding episodes that they simply tuned out.

I didn't finish this episode, I didn't feel I had to since I'm sure that one of the vice squad (probably Trudy this time out) got to blow away the rapist in the climactic scene just as he's about to pull a repeat rape on the innocent victim. Who cares.

After the last episode with the doll killer, I've decided not to waste any more time sitting through the worst the MV producers have to offer. I think I made the right decision. From here on in, if the show smells within the first 15 minutes, then it's safe to say it's a turd...and I hate accidentally stepping on turds.
