Storyline

Ray is picked up by the police and brought to the Chief who tells him he knows about him and what he does. Instead of arresting him before, he chose to sit on it till he could use him and it appears the time is now. It seems the man's wife was killed and it appears they were not happily married so they're turning their attention towards him. He's hoping another cop who was with him when his wife was killed will back him up but the cop not only doesn't, he passes the lie detector test. So with a girl who's a friend of the Chief he tries to prove his innocence. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

My favorite episode of Stingray
19 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is my favorite. The theme song is outstanding. Few years ago, I contacted Lois Blaisch and asked her if she ever recorded that song so that I could have it. She was very kind and replied saying that no, she never recorded that song. "A very cool song" as she stated. I am trying to find the soundtrack for Stingray - if it exists - that maybe will have that song.

This episode has a very deep meaning to me. On how sometimes Life has different plans for us, in spite of what we want or dream for ourselves. It talks about personal sacrifice for the benefit of the one who cares most to us... "To be a watcher or a player, a giver or a taker...": "You've been waiting a life time \ even but a lucky break \ hanging on to a lifeline \ that's where you made your first mistake \ ... \ Sometimes you've gotta sing the blues \ a little looney goes a long long way \ Sometimes there's nothing but the blues \ when you got nothing there to loose \ OH! You've gotta sing the blues..."
