When Buz meets the Colby clan they look like clones - of Buz. Tod & Buz speed into Charm City where a family member ran to with-child, disappearing into the sin-filled streets of Baltimore. Orphan Buz has to know if she's his mother.Written by
The climactic scene between Maharis and Field is a gem of restrained feeling. Each is groping emotionally but can't know for exactly what. All in all, Maharis gets to show a more sensitive side than usual. Superior acting was an often overlooked series strength, but is shown regularly by the two leads and their guest cast. Even bleary-eyed Lon Chaney Jr. fits in here. Too bad the fight scene is so clumsily staged, the only performance flaw in an otherwise well- mounted hour.
Seems the rough-house Colby clan that the guys stumble upon thinks Buz is the son of a missing Colby girl. Seeing his physical resemblance to clan members, the orphaned Buz is immediately interested, spending the rest of the episode trying to track down what may be his mysterious mother. Then too, I've got a new appreciation for the complexities of tracking down a missing person, especially after 25-years. All in all, the series strengths are on display here, even though guys have to navigate without the usual romantic interests.
