  • "A Must Watch Episode"

    This was such a great episode and truly part of what got me hooked on this series back in the 80\'s. The opening scene/dream montage just really grabs you from the beginning. I love the demonstration of Rick\'s concern for A.J., and it just really defines how close these two brothers are. I hope and pray they release more seasons on DVD so I can see this one again. A classic!moreless
  • The brothers are accused of a crime they know they haven't commited and are determined to prove their innocence. Despite the misgiving of their mother and against advice from their friend on the police force they pursue the trail to the true culprits.moreless

    This episode illustrates what got me hooked on this series. The closeness between the brothers despite their different personalities, and the family bond.

    Even their approach to their detective work is interesting to watch. The brothers unite to uncover the real criminals and all the while Rick is having terrible nightmares that seem to come true.

  • Rick and AJ are working on a stock swindle scheme and suddenly find themselves framed for the crime. They try to discover who is behind the plot. In the mean time, Rick is being plagued by nightmares that continue to haunt him and terrorize him during wmoreless

    The love and concern these two brothers have for each other is a focus point of this episode. Beside the danger, action and adventure there is an underlying sense of filial devotion that absolutely grabs the heart strings. They'll sacrifice their own safety - even to the extent of sacrificing their own life - if it means saving a brother. In one word...WOW!

    • (Downtown Brown warning the boys not to revoke their bail by going to Mexico.)
      Downtown Brown: As your friend I'm telling you, you're dead wrong on this one. And I'm not going to let you do it. Look, I'll stand on your shadows for as long as it takes...and you know I can do it, too. If you take one step towards Mexico, if you even go out for a Mexican dinner, I'll throw your butts right back in jail for your own protection. Try me.
