I like the factual "Dragnet" style
29 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

A very 70's TV-cop-story style. It is a "Quinn Martin production" and if you remember "The FBI", "Streets of San Francisco" and his other shows you know what I mean. This seemed like the straight story and made me curious to learn more about the crime. "Just the facts ma'am."
