This one is based on the novel 'Thin Air' as was a 1982 Simon and Simon episode. Hey wait, Gerald McRaney was in both!
It's nice seeing Jim as a sort of family man, with the kid. I found that very sweet. Garner played it super convincingly.
Indeed, Garner's performance in general in this one is really strong.
Hey, the guy who played Abe Mencken in Mad Men is in this one!
This one could easily have been feature length or a two parter.
