A gangster's story

I plenty enjoyed to see here Eddy Asner here as a mobster in total feud with his former associates. Well, besides this, don't expect much more. This episode provides just the action sequences audience wait for. Sam Cade is required to help the gangster in this gang war, and I find this rather unusual. And the hit men here don't look as hit men. They look like budding young executives. This episode is not the best of the series, for sure. Anyway, I'll never get tired of those seventies series, their atmosphere, scores, settings, everything.

Directed by Richard Donner, the guy who later gave us great large screen hits such as SUPERMAN and LETHAL WEAPON series.
