  • There's a reason this episode won a Peabody Award

    A fun homage to Chandler and Hammett, with all the archetypes, this episode is plotted using every device in film noir. You can tell Patrick Stewart is into the "Dixon Hill" character, as is Brent Spiner, and this was probably Gates McFadden's biggest acting stretch during the tenure of the series. Lawrence Tierney (the longtime film noir staple) is there too!

    Watch it. Have fun.
