Mexican border story
22 August 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

As far as I can remember, that's the first time this show speaks of Narcotics on the Mexican border, and not only the LA Streets. It is quite different from the other episodes, because it focuses less on the private lives of the cops and rather insist on their jobs or stake out routine. It is also a rather action packed and violent story with some gruesome and bloody sequences. No, I persist, this is a good episode but definitely without the POLICE STORY trade mark. But after all, why not? Because it remains a police story, but just different from the rest of the show.

Good episode indeed.
