A nice change of pace episode
5 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This gets a moderate recommendation for going beyond the standard cop-show formula. Worth seeing for the cinematic opening and closing scenes. Julie is a weekend mentor/big sister to the titular Cricket (a troubled child the script sensitively labels "retarded"). This begins with a lyrical, charming sequence. Gliding across a lake in a swan-shaped boat, Julie tells Cricket a fairy tale about a sleeping princess. After picking up a discarded gun and accidentally shooting Julie (she is grazed across her forehead), he runs away, thinking he has killed her.

Most of the story is his journey across town and down to the beach, collecting items from the fairy tale (flowers, a shell, seaweed necklace, gold ring) in the hope he can bring Julie back by magical means. Along the way he encounters lovely beach babe Andrea Cagan (who resembles Julie and triggers a slow-motion flashback), and his estranged mother (Susan Howard) who lives in a Malibu beach house. Things come nicely full circle with a return to the lake for the finale.
