"There but for the grace of God goes Erskine..."
6 September 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode of "The FBI" is an odd one. Following in the footsteps of the last episode, it seems that the show is delving into the personal life of Inspector Erskine--something it didn't do later in the series. In this case, an embezzler (Jack Klugman) is on the run with his son and Erskine and his partner, Rhodes, are in persuit. What makes this personal is that Erskine seems to like the criminal...or at least is able to relate to him as they have a lot in common. They are widowers, both served in Korea and more...and Rhodes plays armchair psychologist and tries to analyze his co-worker. As for Erskine, he's still a professional and plans on doing something distasteful...to use the man's son to lure him back to the States.

This is a good episode and as I mentioned above, the show focuses a bit more on Erskine and his personal life than I was expecting, as I've seen many of the later episodes. Worth seeing...and interesting to see Jack Klugman's real life wife, Brett Somers, playing his sister in the show.
