Episode 124: Dragnet

In this episode, we continue Dan Aykroyd Month with the 1987 homage to Jack Webb’s classic police procedural, Dragnet!  Aykroyd is a huge fan of Webb and his work, which is quite evident in this movie, and there’s a pretty great cast doing pretty great work in there as well… it’s just that the actual plot of the film is really, really dumb.  Great Art of Noise song? Check. Superb attention to detail from the original TV show? Check. Likeable Tom Hanks and deadpan Dan Aykroyd doing things they’re good at? Check. Dumbest plot that ever dumbed? WHY
