Barnaby Jones AND Frank Cannon together on one show?!
13 August 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

FROM IMDB TRIVIA: This episode is a continuation of a Cannon episode. The Barnaby Jones DVD box set includes both parts 1 & 2 as originally aired whereas the Cannon DVD box set includes only part 1 with an alternate ending that brings the episode to a conclusion.

"The Deadly Conspiracy" is a very peculiar two-part TV show. This is because BOTH Frank Cannon and Barnaby Jones are working the same case....just from different sides. What makes it even more unusual is that part one was shown on "Cannon" and part two on "Barnaby Jones". Weird, huh?

So is this merger any good? Yes, although I felt a bit cheated that the episode I just watched is NOT what happened in the part two that was aired on the "Barnaby Jones" TV show. Well worth seeing regardless.
