      Highway Patrol: Resort is an episode from the first season of this half-hour drama which focuses on the California Highway Patrol, as run by Chief Dan Mathews. This may be one of the earliest TV crime shows to do a story on heroin and drug trafficking. It begins with an addict providing Mathews and a narcotics agent for the state information about how she got her drugs.

      A big


      part of what happens also concerns newlyweds who are headed to their new home when a gas station attendant finds drugs in the hubcap of their car. There’s some soap opera type of problems here, which is a little juvenile in my book, and honestly, it distracts from the show. I suppose it’s used to set up the husband’s involvement with what happens.

      Basically, the husband is out ...


      • to prove to his bride that he has nothing to do with the drugs. In the process, he messes up the capture of one of the men.

        However, this whole seen was botched. It had bad direction and was poorly staged in just about every way. When the husband tries to get the guy, there’s no reason why the cops shouldn’t have been able to nab the bad

        guy anyway. In fact, neither of the cops needed to stop to check on the husband, who had only been shoved out of the way. Instead of doing their jobs, Mathews launches into a lecture and the narcotics agent doesn’t really do anything.

        It was a very bad scene. The fight, such as it was, was poorly executed, too. So, somewhat interesting show, but poorly directed in multiple scenes.
