Bang-up episode
26 June 2015 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Bates (sturdy Betty Thomas) takes issue with Coffey (amiable Ed Marinaro) getting her a male stripper as a birthday gift. Belker (Bruce Weitz in peak gruff form) and two rookie cops go undercover at an arcade. Several suspects are questioned about a deadly armed robbery. Everyone tries takeout food from a new Chinese restaurant.

This episode nicely explores the sexual tension between Coffey and Bates. The central plot about the robbery and its aftermath vividly captures the pandemonium that's a constant on the Hill, with an especially exciting stand-off between the police and the robbers. The Chinese restaurant story has an amusing punchline. Moreover, there are sterling guest contributions from Elayne Heilveil as the antsy Christina, Jeanetta Arnette as the bitter Lenore, Peter Donat as shrewd lawyer Schuster, Edward Grover as hard-nosed fed Davis, Lisa Sutton as the sweet Robin, Peter Lownds as the hapless Doresy, and, in an especially chilling turn, Frank Doubleday as a dangerous psycho. The ultimate fate of Dorsey is devastating and serves as a laudable testament to this show's bold willingness to not pull any punches.
