Life on the Edge
5 December 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Buzz and Todd's walking shot down a crowded Youngstown street is a fine slice of Americana, circa 1960. Surprisingly, none of the crowd appears camera conscious. Characterizations here are paramount. McGavin's superb as Copa, the punchy fighter on his last tank town legs. Buzz remembers him affectionately from when he gave the young kid a real boxing lesson. Now Buzz watches sadly as Copa stumbles his way through words and the ring. The 60-minutes is also a Maharis showcase, along with a sharp-tongued Ed Asner as McGavin's trainer. Milner as Todd mostly looks on. Frankly, I could have done without Copa's implausibly long-suffering girl, even though Nettleton's just right for the part. (Note that the screenplay implies how the two keep separate rooms! But then this is the day of TV's Standards and Practices watchdogs.) Anyhow, the entry again shows the unusual strength of an offbeat series.
