  • Almost like an Untouchables Rogues Gallery.

    If you're a fan of the old Untouchables TV series you'll love this episode of McCloud. It plays almost like an Untouchables Rogues Gallery. Harry Guardino, Nehemiah Persoff, Robert Middleton, Joseph Ruskin, and Peter Mamakos all made several guest appearances on that classic 1959-63 crime drama. Interestingly enough, none of the aforementioned actors plays the lead villain in Million Dollar Round-Up. That honor goes to Eric Braeden now famous as tycoon Victor Newman on the top-rated daytime drama, Young and the Restless.

    As for the episode itself, it's fast-paced and exciting. Braeden is one of the nastier villains of the series and Harry Guardino gives a masterful performance as an honest cop who commits one act of corruption and ends up paying the ultimate price while trying to make amends.
