One of greatest casts ever in a TV show with powerful, involved story
Some of the finest actors in the business are gathered to present an involved, dramatic, powerful story in a strong entry in one of the best series ever on TV.
This is a double entry, running more than two hours in a dark print on YouTube, and well worth sitting through every minute.
Several inter-related plots are weaved together, as some random crimes seem to be perpetrated by police, and the entire department is riven by political problems at the same time it is looking for a new chief.
(Los Angeles is one of the most corrupt cities in these United States, and some of that corruption is gently shown in this episode.)
And at the same time several officers and their families are riven by personal problems of love and drugs.
"Police Story" was nearly always a top drama, and one of the best shows on TV. Even a few decades after the debut, its individual entries stand out, with some great performers, strong stories, and the Jerry Goldsmith theme.
I cannot recommend this entry or this series too much. I just wish the prints at YouTube were better.
