Friendly cop
19 March 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Not bad this episode, even with no many action scenes. It would be rather a story focusing on atmosphere only and relations between characters. In this tale, an ex con asks his long time friend - the cop Warden - to help him against his fellow partner gangsters. It's a poignant, and gripping tale, the kind I did not expect so much. And always the famous jazzy theme, and black and white photo; After all, no matter the story, the atmosphere itself talks the whole thing. And you also have here top performances. It really looks like big screen stuff, and i know what I am talking about. I watched billions of film noirs in my life. Directed by Gerald Mayer, guy who worked for the big screen and TV industry.
