There are more than 5 episodes - there are 27 and Cassavetes is in them all, 18 November 2006
Author: Bill Milosz from Chicago

One of the best TV detective shows. Cool, if improbable. The gritty NYC location shots compare favorably with other great programs of the era like NAKED CITY, but are somewhat more moody. The beatnik characters are less goofy than the patronizing look at the Beats that Peter Gunn features. It's just an altogether hip show.
