Quotes

Lt. Howard Hunter: Keenly interested as I am in the opinion of coffee-shop help, madam, I must nonetheless insist that you exchange this brûlée grotesque for one medium rare. In addition to which, you will henceforth address me as "Lieutenant."
Lt. Howard Hunter: Perhaps if you did your job properly, you'd be compensated properly! Why, in Saudi Arabia, you'd be physically maimed for this sort of malfeasance!

Worthy episode
17 April 2015 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Furill (Daniel J. Travanti, super as usual) seeks the truth pertaining to accusations made against some of his men being corrupt. LaRue's (a nicely smarmy Kiel Martin) ego gets bruised after Washington (nicely played by Taureen Blacque) is offered a job outside of the precinct as Chief of Security. Hunter (an excellent James Sikking) goes to the hospital for exploratory surgery. Hill (sturdy Michael Warren) busts arrogant councilman Arnold Detweiler (ably played to the obnoxious hilt by Michael Fairman) for driving while intoxicated.

The subplot about Detweiler gives this particular its strongest dramatic moments as it makes a valid and potent statement about how those in positions of authority abuse said authority in order to avoid being penalized for their infractions. Moreover, another subplot about a mentally ill man who thinks he's an alien is handled with admirable taste and wit -- and comes complete with a nifty surprise ending. Goldblume (a fine Joe Span) getting accused of being dirty gets resolved in a logical, albeit downbeat, manner. In addition, there are neat guest contributions from Leo Rossi as eager action move star Jon Gennaro, Trinidad Silva as swaggering street gang leader Martinez, David Caruso as the hotheaded Tommy Mann, and Jon Cypher as the slimy Chief Daniels.
