  • I've noticed this show does a lot of gun shooting, but they aren't big on showing anything else

      Toward the end of its second season, Highway Patrol presented an episode entitled Double Cross. It begins with a robbery and an old fashioned double cross that results in one of the robbers being murdered by the other. It’s not long before Chief Dan Mathews (Broderick Crawford) and his California Highway Patrol are on the job, tracking down the bad guy.

      Oddly,


      there’s a surprise early on about who is helping to set up the robbery. Much of the show ends up being a face off between two of the robbers as they try to outdo the other. It’s reasonably entertaining, but doesn’t totally hold me to the screen as much as some other outings have, especially when we get towards the end ...

        There is a nasty turn for one of the two in the face off, but they didn’t show that. I’ve noticed this show does a lot of gun shooting, but they aren’t big on showing anything else. I also have to laugh at how Crawford carries his gun. It’s so weak, almost limp in his hand.

        is in this show as one of the CHP officers, though this was a pretty tame episode for him. I can’t say he did anything to really stand out, but it’s still good to see him.

        Overall, I have to say that this show was just so so. Double Cross just didn’t have enough zing to it to be anything more than average.
