Did You Know?


Seven years before appearing on this episode, 'Clifton Collins, Jr.' and 'Peter Fonda', appeared in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Dr. Sheldon Hawkes is shown collecting evidence from under the victims fingernails at the crime scene. He should have bagged the hands and collected this evidence at the lab. Because if there had been any kind of breeze at the crime scene, the evidence would have easily been blown off of the paper he was collecting the evidence on. See more »

Un-Easy Rider
16 February 2012 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Peter Fonda plays a key guest-acting role in this two-part segment. Fonda plays "William Hunt," a guy who used to partner with "Mac" when the two were street cops. Hunt, though, is not with the police anymore and Mac eyes him suspiciously. Fonda, over 40 years older since his famous "Easy Rider" days, is still fun to watch. His voice sounds a lot like Clint Eastwood's.

The villain in here is a nasty dude, bent on revenge for what he feels was injustice....that he had no business being in jail. He just got out and problems have started. Clifton Collins Jr does a good job playing "Raymond Harris," a man who is after Mac and his former partner and will kill each, if he can. (There is a lot of suspense in this episode. Both the ex-con and Mac are on edge.)

This is a very good story that makes you anxious to see the conclusion.
