Worthy of a medal!
29 January 2017 | by filmklassikSee all my reviews

Evidence surfaces indicating Peggy's late husband Marcus -- a hero cop killed in the line of duty -- was actually "on the take," and Joe sets out to clear his name.

This exciting, well-written mystery boasts interesting clues (including a clever and deceptively simple method of enciphering) and one great narrative curve ball I did not see coming. (Producers Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts were usually good for several of those per season).

"Medal for a Hero" ranks among the best episodes of season 3, which is saying a lot.

Catch this one.
