Cannon and the cute kid.
30 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This show about a kidnapping is very unusual. It doesn't show the kidnapping take place (it's already a done deed when the show begins) but before the ransom can be paid, the kid manages to escape and returns home. Even more unusual is Frank Cannon's involvement--his fee for helping out are some bottles of rare wine and he strikes up a nice relationship with the kid. But here's the problem--the kid is mute because of the trauma and isn't a lot of help in helping the police know who the kidnappers were. To make things worse, there is an inside person who is working with the kidnappers--and they are determined to help the kidnappers get the kid and kill him before he can talk! This episode is also a bit unusual also because much of the show is set at Dodgers stadium ("Mr. Ed" and "The Munsters" also did shows there, by the way).

I liked this show, as it had an interesting plot and I liked seeing the kid and Cannon interact. It helped to humanize Cannon and make him more likable. I also LOVED how he questioned the injured kidnapper--it was enjoyably brutal. Overall, a very good episode and one well worth seeing.
