One more so good episode
3 October 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Once more this TV series brought me a great pleasure especially with our old buddy Eddy Asner as a vet cop fighting his old inner demons, his existential problems, although helped by some fellow comrades such as Scott Brady. One more typical cop story, and from the inside, as usual for this outstanding series, the best ever made on police officers as they really are.

Not much action however, but I don't care as far as the characters are shown in a powerful way, and above all convincing. Even a blind man, only by hearing, could guess this tale is from Jo Wambaugh. And also as usual, Eddy Asner patrols here with a rookie, and the two of them are delicious to analyse. The conflict that exist between them. I will never get tired of this so seventies show. Never. Directed by the prolific TV film and episode maker Virgil Vogel.
