Richard Stalh and Lynn Hamilton
2 January 2017 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"JJ and the Gang" concludes with JJ returning home after spending one night in the hospital, suffering only a flesh wound after being shot by Mad Dog (Oscar De Gruy). Florida worries that her vengeful husband is liable to do something terrible, so he seeks to pacify her: "I will not break every bone in Mad Dog's body, just the trigger finger!" In court, the exasperated Judge Daniels (Richard Stahl) is unable to curb the youth's antisocial behavior, chewing his gum and basically getting off lightly in a system that's too backed up to keep the criminals behind bars. Justice is served by Mad Dog's grieving mother (Lynn Hamilton), who tells him how much she hates him, and strikes him when he insults his absent father. James' day in court ends with a sympathetic nod to the boy that shot his son, much to Florida's relief. A two part storyline remembered as one of the show's finest, played out in front of a very appreciative live audience.
