What's wrong with the justice system today.
Honestly people! A 27 year old deputy allowed to be the investigative lead in a murder case. What's wrong with this picture?
The guy has a close connection with the murder victim, he worked for him as a teenager. How can Opie Taylor up there solve a murder case when he's too young to be wise enough to pick up on all the subtle clues that people may provide, and he's too personally involved with the victim to be objective.
What happened to the good old days when Colombo, Mannix, Ironside or any of the older investigators with years of experience were the ones chasing the perpetrators. The guys with the savvy to ignore the egregious flirtations of a sexy blond woman who would try to distract them from the case.
Get me a guy like Fish from Barney Miller's squad. Magnum, P.I. Crockett and Tubbs. At least these guys would be old enough to remember the phrase "Book 'em Dano!"
Somebody call in Barnaby Jones. I'm sure that he would have the case solved within an hour (two hours if this is a 2 part episode).
Oh wait, before you call in Barnaby, Quincy and Sam should get a look at the body first....
