Despite the terrible title pun, a great episode
1 November 2018 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Wave Goodbye" is a top notch episode from Season 2, filled with memorable performances from a talented cast.

The late, great Vic Morrow makes an appearance as Police Sergeant Jordan. Morrow brings gravitas to every role, no matter how small. He's splendid here as the cop with a drinking problem,.

The beautiful Diane Crowley makes her second appearance in the series, this time as the unfortunate Kacy.

Wings Hauser is excellent as the wide eyed and troubled Vietnam vet, Nick.

W.K. Stratton is also solid as the young Police Officer Kelly.

9 out of 10. An almost Higgins-free episode after the previous Higgins-centric tale.
