Excellent episode
6 May 2016 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Calletano (a lively and engaging performance by Rene Enriquez) appears as a contestant on the game show "Lucky Ducks." Hunter (sound work from James Sikking) is worried about his sick horse Apollo. Coffey (likable Ed Marinaro) and Davis (solid Harold Sylvester) arrest a guy (a funny portrayal by James Murtaugh) who'll eat anything for money. Renko's (robustly played by Charles Haid) first meeting with his future in-laws doesn't go over well.

The story about the guy who'll eat anything provides a few good laughs while Calletano's appearance on the game show is likewise pretty amusing. Furillo (Daniel J. Travanti, splendid as usual) has a nice conversation with his ex-wife Fay (a fine Barbara Bosson) about his marital problems with Joyce (an able and affecting Veronica Hamel). Moreover, there are sturdy guest contributions from Robert Constanzo as fearsome loan shark Franco, Randy Brooks as the volatile Marcus, Trinidad Silva as the excitable Martinez, and Joe Santo as Franco's rough right-hand man Lestarza, who in a genuinely surprising and uproarious moment reveals to Belker (Bruce Weitz in peak scruffy form) that he's gay and has a crush on him. Hunter's concern about his ailing horse proves to be quite moving and concludes this episode on a poignant note with Hunter spending the night with the horse in a stable ("I'm here, boy").
