It's theme involving guilty is very, very familiar
6 March 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The theme to "Frontrunner" is a common one on "One Step Beyond"—a guilty conscience. The show begins with a ban in intensive care and he's dying. Despite this, he insists that the reporter be allowed to stay and the dying man wants to explain his story. It seems that he's a very famous jockey—perhaps the best jockey there ever was. However, when he was younger, he allowed his anger to destroy another jockey and he had to get it off his chest. Following the incident where he hurt this other man, he went on to greater and greater success. However, one day he saw the other jockey again and this meeting ending up being MEGA-creepy.

While this is not among the best episodes for the series, it is solid and well acted. My only complaints are that like all the other shows, I really doubt the narrator (John Newland) when he insists the story is true and the other is that the actor playing the dying man was just too big to be believable as a jockey.
