Storyline

Thugs hijack a drug shipment in Mexico, killing a guard and loading it onto trucks en route to Los Angeles. Baretta realizes that the drugs are destined for an old mobster and puts him under constant -- and obvious -- surveillance. It's so obvious that the mobster gets to know Baretta and even to create a semblance of friendship with him. By the end of Act Four, the mobster has served up his nephew (who was the driving force behind the robbery) to Baretta for arrest. Baretta is grateful, but in the tag he and the mobster sit on the mobster's front porch -- jointly waiting as the trucks roar up Interstate 5, getting ever closer to the mobster's imminent doom. Written by Peter Harris

Mob friend?

This story is a good time waster but not much. I won't repeat the summary already well explained. The actors do their job in a rather convincing way, but I preferred BRONK series, so far in BARETTA's one. Maybe it will take off in a few episodes because the show spirit has not reached its peak yet, the screen writers have to find their marks, their cruise pace for this show. But I agree that Robert Blake is funny and tough in the same time. I remember this series when it was aired in France during the second part of the seventies. Only the scenes between John Marley and Robert Blake are worth the viewing in this tale, unusual; when they eat together or play chess. This episode lacks action, that's the main flaw.
