The Equalizer, Robert McCall (Edward Woodward), is a retired C.I.A officer who now offers his services, free of charge, as a troubleshooter, protector and investigator to people he sees worthy by placing an advert in the newspaper “Got a problem? Odds Against You? Call The Equalizer.”
Season Three sees Robert McCall team up with some old friends to help him with his cases tackling the cases that even the police won’t touch. He uses his old CIA contacts to help find information about his targets to help right the wrongs they commit and help families fight injustice.
Overall, The Equalizer is a good quality drama even though it is over 25 years old. The stories are great and with the introduction of old colleagues to help him on his cases (Edward Woodward had suffered a heart attack during filming so was given less screen time about half way through this season) this didn’t intrude on the storylines and in some ways helped them. Features lots of guest stars including a very young Macaulay Culkin, Telly Savalas (as a priest), Sam Rockwell and Robert Mitchum.
Highly recommended, cannot wait for season 4 to be released on DVD at the end of October. I used to watch them as a teenager and they are still as good as I remember. Great to own on DVD.
