Not a great episode but a significant improvement over the last three.
18 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The first three episodes of season four of "Cannon" were simply terrible with nothing to commend them. Bad writing and plot holes abound in all three. Even though the fourth episode is not great, it's very good and helps to get the series back on track.

A guy approaches Cannon. He wants to hire him to surreptitiously follow his wife as she is a courier. Now exactly WHY he is worried about her is really ill-defined, but Cannon takes the case anyway. However, he loses the woman because it's all a case of misdirection. Why they would hire Cannon and what is really going on, you'll have to see for yourself.

The show is decent...not great. David Soul is one of the guests and his accent comes and goes...and his makeup a bit silly. But otherwise, the show is original and reasonably interesting.
