  • Classic Dragnet drug and crime episode for us to sit back and enjoy.

    Another good Dragnet episode where Jack Webb get to talk about drugs. While not preachy, it depends upon your knowing Jack Webb's position on how Marijuana leads directly to all the hard drugs. I totally agree with Mr. Webb on the hard drugs, but not on how Marijuana must lead to the hard drugs. Anyway, back to the episode.

    Friday and Gannon get a new home burglary case, where the person left no clues and took only stuff he or she could carry. (S)he even found $380.00 saved back by the Mother to help her children.

    Our heroes follow all the clues but its not till Friday get a gut feeling, plays it as a hutch, and executes his plan that we find out who did the crime. Some might guess from the Mother's interview who might be the criminal, but for those keeping an open mind the criminal be a surprise.

    Overall another perfect example of Dragnet and crime drama series of the 1960s.
