A confusing, talky misfire....
14 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In this sub-par episode, Jack Warden stars as a reporter talking about his experiences to some analyst. As a result, the show is made up of lots of flashbacks and it all comes off as confusing and really talky. The story is all about the reporter's experiences with a part-time freedom fighter/full-time thug, Ramon (Telly Savalas) as well as the reporters love story with some lady. The ending is bizarre and really didn't work well.

I found my attention wavering throughout. I think the story might have worked better if the story had just been told without flashbacks and if it had been tightened up. As it is, I was really bored and disappointed. With too many poor episodes and too few amazing ones (and the show had quite a few great shows), I could see why the series only lasted two seasons. "The Watchman" should have never been made as it along with several episodes just before it, as the show had hit a bad patch here.
