  • This was one of my favorite episodes. I liked the humor found in this one. I could've lived without the rap music. I still remember 1988 and we just didn't need to have rap on cop shows.


    The story of the romance seems a little forced if you think too much about it. Both teenagers happened to be the same age, same issues with family. The story was somewhat predictable as far as the crime itself. The bad boy returning from the pen, reminded of past crimes and easy sentence which upsets the locals.

    The biker had been accused of rape and convicted of murder. Seems that the prison system must be going soft on us for a guy like that to be walking around free.When someone has just been released from prison, or there's a stranger in town or an old flame returns that there is a connection.
