One more task for social worker cop Baretta
25 March 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

As the title suggests, our social worker detective is in charge of bringing escapee kids and teenagers back home, and against their will. They were not abducted at all. One of them, a teen girl is even armed and point it towards our lead in the first part of the episode. That's the story which shows us that the series has sold out every crime scheme available, because in this topic, you have nothing really criminal, only teenage or kid social problems, and that suits fine for a social worker cop isn'it? Baretta brings even the escapees to his own home...

Yes, I persist and sign, the show gets awry, nothing to do with the first seasons. Totally different folks. OK, you have Bert Salmi as the heavy, but don't expect a surprise here, unless you are yourself a social worker who wants to stay at work whilst watching this episode.
