Episode Summary

EDIT
D.H.Q. - Missing Person
AIRED:
A local high school reports a missing student called to the vice principle office to receive an honor. She had not missed any days of school or been late, which worries the vice principle. She calls the police, who in turn have Friday and Gannon visit her. The case takes Friday and Gannon to a fashion salon, apartment complex, a friend's home, optometrist's office, restaurant, a psychiatrist's office, and finally to the home of the missing person's Mother.moreless

  • Wonderful episode ahead of its time and yet also of a much more secure itself time.

    10
    Friday and Gannon work the case of a missing student and instead discover a troubled young woman. The episode has twists, turns, and unexpected ending.



    The episode presents psychiatric issues in a thoughtful and understanding manner, which is progressive for the time. Also unexpected is how Friday and the announcer both say no crime occurred. Today, the police would find a crime in this episode, such as improper usage of identity cards, fraudulent usage of public resources, or something else showing how times change. While not commenting directly on a post 9/11 world, it does help us see the changes (and many not for the better).



    This episode shows how many TV shows / episodes can have timeless and unexpected by the writers messages even 40 years later.moreless
