one of the best TV Pilots ever
10 August 2006 | by danielj_old999See all my reviews

I saw this on network TV in 1980, must have been some kind of freak filler and it blew me away, I was amazed by the tight direction of Wanamaker, wow, gee whiz, and this was the prime of my buddy Burt, makes me wonder how many great pilots are locked away in vaults only awaiting the day of judgment when they are all unlocked and facing their maker, not their TV maker but the big maker, and judged, this one's going on the right hand of god, by God, I wrote Burt a fan letter about this episode, like the best TV film noir I ever saw...probably as good as the live TV of the 1950s except honed to a knife edge of perfection, like I said, you'll never see this but I did and I'm glad.
