Check kiting isn't the most riveting of crimes, especially when a sweet old grandma does it. Nonetheless, Webb and Co. manage to make an engrossing half-hour of it. Seems the old lady only does it three months a year and for relatively small amounts. Plus, she's been doing it for nine years and the cops are no closer now than they were then. For shop clerks, she's simply too motherly looking to suspect. So guess who's assigned to crack the impossible case.
I love the way Webb keeps us entertained with byplay during the interviews. Still, I could have used more of the fashion models parading their shapely stuff. But who's idea was it to have one of the girls make unlikely goo-goo eyes at ordinary looking cop Friday. And what about Frank becoming a cook's helper; I'll bet that wasn't on his duty roster for the day. Anyway, it's a typically engaging entry that makes the most of what's really a pretty tame crime premise that's nevertheless heightened with a human interest payoff.
