good episode
27 September 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

When I looked at my DVD I didn't find the particular title that was stated here on IMDb. A bit confused I searched for the storyline about an arrogant Broadway producer so I came across Manhattan Manhunt. It looked like the same story but strangely when the episode started it was also titled Manhattan Manhunt. Again, IMDb said it was just one hour long, but on my DVD (region 2) it took 72 minutes to watch. But when I watched it I also recognised the story about McCloud and a gunman. So here we have it, Manhattan Manhunt is a compilation of Who Says You Can't Make Friends in New York City? and The Stage Is All the World.

The story, as for many McCloud episodes, is rather simple and doesn't have a lot of shootings or pursuits. Still, this episode was watchable but coming from the early seventies couldn't stand the time but being that old it is watchable just to see Time Square back then or here a party going on with some kind of hippies. That part is heavily edited but it worked out fine.

All acting was believable but you could fall over the thing that McCloud is new in the city but always finds his way through New York.

Horse Stealing on Fifth Avenue is never used on region 2 DVD's, the only thing they used from it is here to see, the horseback chase used in all subsequent episode titles.
