A.J. the hypnotist

This episode is a variation on the 'law in a small town' theme we've seen depicted in countless police shows. What helps in this instance is the use of comedy to freshen up what is otherwise a stale plot. Prolific character actor Pat Corley plays the mayor, and he seems to find amusement in how his town is so different from the rest of America. It would appear corruption and virtue can co-exist harmoniously in his beloved little crime-infested hamlet. Of course, he needs the Simons' help when it seems that someone is out to kill him. But other than that, it's a peaceful community.

There are some twists. The police chief is the mayor's ex-wife. She might be in on the attempts to take his life, but then she is soon snuffed out. The mayor is arrested for her murder, but there are other characters who seem just as guilty, including a lawyer played by Jack Bannon. Before long another person turns up dead-- a "reformed" cocaine dealer who posted one million dollars in bail to get the mayor out of jail. His death sends shock waves through the community. A young woman named Martie was at the scene of the murder, and she takes off. The boys track her down and discover she has a bad hangover.

In the next scene, Martie admits she had been drinking and cannot remember how the murder occurred. But she did hear some sort of argument leading up to the murder. In an interesting scene that's more than a bit far-fetched, she has A.J. hypnotize her so she can pull what she had overheard out of the deep recesses of her mind. They tape record what she says and take it to Town. He says he cannot use any of this, since it's hearsay-- drunken hearsay. Yet somehow he's willing to go undercover in an RV to nab the man the Simons suspect is guilty. It's entertaining, if not wholly believable.
