Hasn't aged well

As someone who remembers the Bicentennial, watching this show in the second decade of the 21st century brought back a lot of memories, not all of them pleasant.

The set-up is that Chief Ironside is using a TV talk show to trap the killer. We can all figure out early in the show who the killer is, the question becomes whether Ironside's ploy will work.

What makes this episode painful is the dialogue on the TV talk show. The host and guests speak in the pretentious, preachy, self-absorbed psycho-babble of the 70's. As someone who was there, all I can say is it seemed like a good idea at the time. But to modern ears it seems as awkward and forced as a middle school date. Nevertheless it fills the time. Without the talk show segments, the episode would be about 5 minutes long.

Avoid this episode if you can.
