"Double Jeopardy" is another excellent ep of "Hill Street Blues"
7 April 2018 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This was another excellent ep of "HSB" written by the show's creators, Michael Kozoll and the late Steven Bochco. In this one, the case against LaRue by Macafee gets resolved, Sgt. Esterhaus talks to Mrs. Furillo about his problem of having two women after him, and Goldblume is unusually off the handle because of an unpleasant experience. Also, many of the officers are on duty in drag to catch a rapist. Plenty of fine drama and great humor abound because of the above as well as the recurring appearance of Barbara Babcock as Grace Gardner. So on that note, "Double Jeopardy" is another highly recommended ep of "Hill Street Blues".
