April 2nd would have been the late Jack Webb’s 100th birthday! Our mysterious listener Mark recommended that we celebrate the occasion and by happy coincidence, our mysterious listener Tim recommended that we listen to “The Big Ruling” from Webb’s signature series, Dragnet! This particular episode depicts an investigation of a heroin ring and evidence that law enforcement is no longer what it once was! Will an informant provide enough details to catch and convict the narcotics dealer? Do you find the casual banter between officers to be authenticating or extraneous? Why would Joe Friday need a new suit? Listen for yourself and find out! Then vote and let us know what you think!

Does The Big Ruling stand the test of time?
  • It's a timeless classic. It definitely stands the test of time.
  • There may be some antiquated moments, but overall it's great. It stands the test of time.
  • It may be historically significant or just fun, but it doesn't stand the test of time.
  • It's not worth revisiting. It definitely does not stand the test of time.
