Should have looked into another motive
10 July 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Today Ironside and his picked team take up the case of Gary Collins who is on death row in California after having allegedly killed his wife and her boyfriend. At least that's what the cops say happened, Collins was in a bad state of inebriation and didn't know what was going on.

Collins has a group of friends, fellow war veterans who are also looking into this and one of them is taking some direct action. The judge on the case is killed and Raymond Burr is threatened. But that's old news to Chief Ironside.

Of course Collins didn't do it, but the interesting thing is that the police were looking at it from the wrong end, taking a very obvious motive. The case as it turns out was deeper than that.

Burr and the cast perform well, this is an episode with a twist.
