Good thing it's available for a week, 'cause I ain't looking forward to waking up at 6:30 on a Saturday morning . . . even for Jason. Well. Maybe for Jason. But I'm just sayin'.

Also, I don't recognize any of the other actors.

This kind of had me scratching my head at first. I thought maybe it was a radio adaptation of the movie starring Steve McQueen. About the only commonalities though, seem to be a cop protecting a witness.

Whatev. Should still be interesting.

Thanks Angel/Servalan!!

Just listened to it and really enjoyed it. We forget how lifelike a radio show can be. You don't need all the scenery to be able to picture it.
As a former New Yorker I have to say Jasons accent was perfect. Wouldn't have known it was him. Will have to listen to it again this week.
Yes, this should be extended. A radio or TV show. Either would be good.

That was cool! I agree, Grannybear, radio shows can be very lifelike.

Jason's versatility is amazing.

I had to listen to it twice to figure out what happened! : point

Jason was terrific, very convincing as an overworked world-weary cop but I have to say that his two side-kicks were a pair of utter ninnies. They reminded me of Abbott and Costello.

LOL..I enjoyed this radio show. And I almost didn't recognize Jason because of his accent...he is fantastic.
