Good episode
7 March 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A rather exciting but classical, usual scheme here with the foreseeable topic of Homocide Squad cops trying to nail a gang of bloody armed robbers. Nothing really new but worth watching with, again, the expectable tailing sequences, armed heists, gunfights and cops among cops atmosphere. And I will never get tired of this, especially the seventies atmosphere. Chuck Connors as the chief is delightful. The music score is also typical of this era. I enjoy watching this old TV show, which provides many stories, cops stories, their daily burden to protect and serve.

I will comment many more of this series épisodes. I promise. Keep watching my writings.
