Great episode
17 November 2013 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but this isn't so much a review - but a reply to stones78.

I really enjoyed your review. And having seen some of these episodes first run - I just wanted to make this comment: the old detective living on dog food is a reference to many, many stories throughout the 70's about elderly people on Soc. Sec. having to live on dog food to make ends meet, as it was cheap. They make a mention of the detective not being left with much. It also is why dog and cat food are mandated to be "human-grade".

I mention this, as one of the things that I love about these old shows is, they aren't just entertaining, they can also be a real time-capsule of the social and economic issues of the time.

Anyway - you provided a great review and you were completely correct about the ending, with the "old-geezers" partaking their knowledge on the young guys - it really made the episode.
