A Superb Episode and its Message Much Needed Today
2 February 2019 | by jlthornb51See all my reviews

A very powerful episode of Trackdown distinguished by a beautiful performance by Keye Luke. This story confronts prejudice and deranged hatred in society against immigrants with a dramatic impact that is unflinching. The message is not a hit over the head but clear and one that needs to be delivered, especially in today's xenophobic time of ignorance and irrational fear. Trackdown seems unique in its prophetic ability to address the Trump age in which we now live and the current regime that perpetuates values this series so often condemns in no uncertain terms. This episode is superbly done and Keye Luke gives one of his finest performances along the always excellent Robert Culp.
