Terrific little drama
6 January 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

What an exciting flick here, with a Bob Blake at his top, where he plays a petty thief and junkie who shot a cop after a shop robbery. Well, you have already read the topic of this powerful crime drama. And you have as usual the so riveting character study in this story. One good scene, when Robert Blake's junkie friend explains to the abducted woman all the things he did for her, to save her, at least trying. This shows that Blake is not the one he seems to be at first sight. I repeat, he gives here a more than powerful performance, especially the sequence when he is the junkie in needing drug crisis. He was truly a great actor. You also have in this episode the police force point of view, and not only the behind closed doors drama between the kidnapped woman and the junkies. Very high rate episode. In this series, you have plenty of them. It is very difficult to tell what is the best episode among the whole of them. And look for the unforgettable bittersweet ending. Absolutely terrific.
