  • A teenager runs away from home with the help of a friend. While he is sleeping, the friend calls the boy's father- with a ransom demand.

    I remember this episode! At first, I could only remember the storyline. I couldn't remember the show or the actor who played the teen. I was thinking that it was Mark Shera, from S.W.A.T. and Barnaby Jones. Then, boom, it hit me. Bobby Sherman. I did a search for tv police or detective shows that he guest starred in, and there it was.



    The storyline of rich parents being distant is a rather common one. Pete from The Mod Squad had rich, distant parents. Exciting and suspensful! The "friend" offers to help him "run away", then makes a ransom demand while the kid is sleeping. After a couple of days, the boy wants to go home. That's when the friend shows his true colors, ties him up and leaves a bomb in the room.moreless
