Excellent opener for the fourth season

Off duty detective Art Bradley (a fine and dignified performance Lawrence Pressman) is reluctant to come forward after witnessing a shooting in a gay bar because he's a closeted homosexual with a wife and kids. A crazy guy (a hilariously flamboyant portrayal by Martin Ferrero) who thinks he's the Cisco Kid gets arrested twice for causing a public disturbance.

The delicate subject matter of homosexuality gets treated with this show's trademark intelligence and sensitivity while the subplot about the Cisco Kid character proves to be a prime source of solid belly laughs. Moreover, this episode brings up some interesting points about police protecting their own versus adhering to doing their job by the book after LaRue (a sturdy Kiel Martin) and Washington (a equally solid Taureen Blacque) bend the rules in an attempt to keep Bradley's homosexuality a secret. In addition, this episode further benefits from bang-up guest contributions from Tracey Walter as wormy thief Willie, Eugene Butler as slimy perp Vincent, and, in an especially funny bit, Nic Savage as the pickpocket, who gives Belker (essayed with customary growly gusto by Bruce Weitz) some sound advice to tell his mother on how to stay cool during a fierce heatwave. A worthy show.
