Did You Know?


This predated William Shatner's appearance as police Sergeant T.J. Hooker (1982) by about 8 years. Here, he is a police Detective Sergeant married to Michael Learned and has an adult daughter (actress Anne Wyndham was 20 years younger than Shatner). In Hooker, he was a former Detective Sergeant now in uniform that was divorced with a preteen daughter. Learned at age 35 compared to Shatner's 43 (8 year gap) was also much older than the typical girlfriend of the week on Hooker, many of whom were over 20 years younger than Shatner. Learned's character makes an observation how Shatner's character is getting younger while she is getting older. Hooker was played as being much younger than Shatner's actual age of fifty-something.

User Reviews

Good script
25 August 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This episode is not an exceptional one among the series. Two cops investigate around several murders. Nothing special. And beside this, you have the usual but so well made the private lives of those same cops, their private affairs, especially Bill Shatner. He is very poignant and convincing here and you have a very touching element in this tale. I can't explain exactly what, I prefer let you see by yourself. I can't tell you anything more unless to spoil the story. Good screenplay and good acting.

The ending doesn't look like a POLICE STORY one, if you compare with the others.
