      I have to admit that I really enjoyed Highway Patrol: Desert Town because it had some real drama and the outcome was something that was difficult to predict. It’s not that we haven’t seen this kind of story before, but the action is mysterious and curious. It’s not completely predictable, and a viewer can’t be certain how the

      resolution will play out.

      The drama begins with Chief Dan Mathews (Broderick Crawford), traveling alone, stops in a small town for breakfast. It’s all very strange and eerie, though, because everywhere he goes, the businesses seem to be shut down. It’s not a holiday or anything, so that’s really odd.

      Mathews becomes suspicious because no one really wants to talk ...


      • to him, either. You have to wonder why, and Mathews definitely questions the reason for the town’s unusual behavior.

        I just like seeing how Mathews investigates and gets to the truth. He has to really dig to find the answers to his questions. I’ve said before how dynamic Crawford is as a performer in this role, and that

        makes him come across as a real bulldozer in this episode.

        The big reveal is stunning. Nothing is really what we thought heading into the final couple of scenes, and that keeps the show surprising.

        The guest cast was solid, and Crawford was outstanding. This was a bit of a change of pace for the new program, and it worked very well.
