Cannon's been taking cases from a lot of unsavory folks lately.
19 August 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In season five (the final season) of "Cannon", the detective seemed to take a lot of cases from unsavory people...quite a departure from the previous seasons. In one case ("Snapshot") everyone involved was awful...especially his client. Here in "Bloodlines", his client is essentially scum. It's odd, as before he had such high ideals....but here in the fifth season he's consorting with some wicked folks!

This episode begins with a young man (Robert Hays) deliberately jumps off a cliff in Acapulco to his death. His billionaire father insists that the young man was NOT suicidal and someone else is to blame. When Cannon cannot find anyone to blame, the man decides to make up a scapegoat. Why would the young man kill himself and why create a patsy?

I would love to tell you more about the reasons for the death...but it would give away too much of the plot. Suffice to say, it was pretty shocking for 1976! A very good episode and the final film or TV appearance by the lovely Nancy Kovacks, as she apparently retired to be the wife of the brilliant musician, Zubin Mehta. It's also among the last films of Robert Drivas, who died a decade later from AIDS...and he was only 50. Overall, a very good penultimate worth your time.
