from imdb Enjoyable Blackie entry with ample laughs, no big surprises 24 September 2011 | by csteidler (Minnesota)
Blackie and the Runt rescue a woman (Lynn Merrick) who's been attacked in the street right in front of their building. They carry in the unconscious woman, who is quickly identified as Gerry Peyton, one of Blackie's old flames. Nothing much new so far, but when they open the bedroom door we see the main twist that this series entry has to offer: a baby!
