Danko's Troubled New Partner
31 December 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Mike is partnered with veteran cop Easy Wyatt, who is becoming unhinged due to his beloved family ranch being torn down for a freeway and his wife suffering a miscarriage.

A good episode, not focusing on solving a crime but a look at a cop who is going through hard times. The great supporting player Earl Holliman plays Wyatt and he is excellent. Mike is torn between reporting Wyatt or trying to help him. He finally goes completely off the deep end and gets into a standoff with the police for a suspenseful climax.
