Good

The Streets of San Francisco is currently being repeated in the UK. I saw this episode today.

I thought it was good. Karl Malden and Michael Douglas work well together and it looks like they were friends in real life too as there is a relaxed feel to their on-screen relationship.

There was a bit of a twist in this episode too. It appeared that one of the boys (played by David Gruner) was being physically abused by his step father. However, it is later revealed that it is his mother (played by Mariette Hartley) who is the abusive one. When the step father is shot the mother tries to pin the blame on her son's friend (played by Clint Howard) although she did the shooting.

The performances are very good I think. Hartley is particularly good as the mother who realises she has problems and has been attending counselling for her abusive behaviour. Overall I enjoyed it.
