EDIT
Five Days in the Death of Sgt. Brown (I)
AIRED:

The star witness to a major case, Ed is shot and seriously injured by a mystery assailant. Threatened with paralysis, he conducts his own struggle from within his hospital bed, while the Chief tries to find out who is still trying to kill his prize pupil. Meanwhile, Ed's best chance of recovery is an untested experimental operation performed by a surgeon whose integrity is very likely about to be put to the test.

  • A revealing side to Ironside and Ed

    10
    Of all of the episodes I have watched so far, this episode revealed more compassion from Ironside,as well as his feelings about his disability. When Ed is shot, Ironside relives his shooting in flashbacks. When Ironside is told that Ed has a broken back, he is emotionally devastated. And when Ed decides not to have surgery, Ed reveals his feelings to the Chief, which rarely happens between them. The Chief counters with a revealing conversation about his disability in an attempt to change Ed's mind. Raymond Burr's powerful performance sets the tone for this episode. Also, Don Galloway gives a above average performance as well.moreless
