Swamp story
6 June 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I warn you, folks, that's here a terrific little story, where Stephen Mc Nally plays a police officer who purchases a cop killer in a swamp and also finds a robbery loot before getting it back to the police station. But everything is not so simple as it seems to at first sight. No folks, and I really don't want to tell you more, to spoil you this absolutely unforgettable episode. The best proof, I watched it five years ago, among hundreds of others episode of dozens of TV shows, and I still remember it!!! McNally is so good here, maybe better than he was in his big screen features. For such a topic, maybe eighty minutes would have been better, but on the other side, twenty four are enough too. You'll get good suspense in this tremendous episode.
