I'm surprised "For the Love of God" didn't get 4 stars. That's one of the very best in the series, right up there with the likes of "Beyond Vengeance" and "Mask of Death". A superb episode and definitely the best from season 2. A top 5 or top 3 in the entire series! In fact it's so good that it's basically remade as a season 4 episode "Judgment Day" with Michael Burns as the nutbar who instead of killing priests kills judges. It's another excellent episode but I prefer this one just a bit more, maybe because I saw it first. There's definitely a DIRTY HARRY connection here - targeting a Catholic priest, Mount Davidson, the school bus finale. Fantastic stuff!

I'd flip this one and "Before I Die" and give the latter 3 stars instead. Another very good episode (about on par with "One Last Shot") but not quite as stellar as "Love of God". About on par with "Betrayed" though.

"Before I Die" gets 4 stars. No argument there.

I had been so conditioned by seeing Leslie Nielsen in "Airplane" and the Naked Gun movies that I was not prepared for what I got from him in his three SoSF guest appearances or his "We Hang Our Own" Five-O episode. Mike's three very strong reviews for his SoSF appearances echoes my thinking. Nielsen was a fantastic dramatic actor.

I remember seeing him in "The Poseidon Adventure", but his role was minor as he was done in by the massive "tidal wave". (The wave being a ridiculously done up Hollywood fantasy as tidal waves don't act like how we saw in the movie. Rogue waves do, but that's not what we were suppose to have seen.)

I digress. RIP Leslie Nielsen and thank you for your acting contributions, funny as well as dramatic!

Glad to see "Before I Die" earned 4 stars. A great episode with Leslie Nielson! Season 2 of the Streets of SF has really started well with these first four shows. Looking forward to seeing the review for "Harem" which was another good show.

For whatever reason I never really cared for "A Wrongful Death". I've seen it at least twice but it never engaged me the way "Daisies on His Coffin" or "Pig in a Blanket" on FIVE-O do. Luckily the next 3 were all superior episodes. I think "Betrayed" is a very good episode. In fact I think it's one of the first episodes I saw. Another in the line of great episodes directed by William Hale. I love the bank robbery and love triangle story here. Martin Sheen excels in playing these young ambitious executive yuppie types! Collin Wilcox (best remembered as the white trash Mayella Ewell in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, who accuses Brock Peters of raping her) is very good as the woman in desperate need of Sheen's love. Lenore Kasdorf was always a looker!

I think Betrayed is a well-acted and solid Streets Of SF episode. Martin Sheen as a younger actor usually played these young businessman or lawyer types. A guy with upward mobility and drive. This time, Sheen plays Dean Knox a stockbroker type who intends to rob a bank and replace some embezzled funds. Knox pretends to love a bank employee Kate Evans and receives info about the bank schedule. Kate recognizes Knox voice during the bank robbery and a gold watch that is exposed when his shirt cuff lifts. Knox strikes her as she moves towards him. A beautiful woman Lindsay Campbell rounds out the love triangle. She's incredibly rich and sexy who Knox hopes to marry. Evans is in her early 40's. Her biological clock is ticking and possibly her last chance at romance. Even though Knox robbed the bank, she's willing to forgive that for love. There's a great scene when Evans confronts Lindsay. Kate's marking her territory and willing to do what it takes to keep Knox.
Time runs out for Dean Knox thanks to some great Stone & Keller investigative work. He intends to murder Kate Evans up on some cliffs overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. She knows that he robbed the bank and killed the guard. Keller & Stone save Kate just in time. I would give Betrayed 3 stars but I think Mr. Mike's grade of 2 1/2 stars is quite sufficient. JC

A Wrongful Death is a solid episode in the Streets Of SF catalogue. Inspector Keller has a detective's worst nightmare. Shooting someone who is later found unarmed. This victim just a kid really Spencer. We have this happen in HFO episodes several times. And They Painted Daisies On His Coffin, Pig In A Blanket, "V" for Vashon The Patriarch etc. These are usually emotional episodes. The victims families are rightfully angry and usually want justice. The shooter this time it's Keller. Stone & Keller with strong investigating and shoe leather unravel the truth. AL was authentic as an emotional Dad losing a son. I have to admit Stone catching Lonnie a little farfetched. The Epilog was okay. The Cannery scene was well-done. Spencer being shot and the rest of the gang escaping. Justice for Keller! JC
