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

Calletano (a fine Rene Enriquez) makes a controversial acceptance speech after receiving the Hispanic Officer of the Year Award. Furillo (Daniel J. Travanti, super) has his hands full after Fay (an endearingly ditsy Barbara Bosson) informs him that his son Frank Jr. is missing. Bates (an excellent Betty Thomas) gets upset after Davenport (sharply played by Veronica Hamel) tears apart her testimony on the witness stand. This episode makes some pertinent points concerning racial insensitivity with the whole issue of Calletano's anger about being erroneously acknowledged as Puerto Rican by his peers (he's actually Columbian) and further gives Hunter (a nicely loopy James Sikking) a few choice amusing moments to display his singular lack of comprehension of both social poise and race relations. Moreover, there's a wealth of comedy gold to be relished in the subplot involving Belker (essayed with trademark gruff gusto by Bruce Weitz) working undercover at a massage parlor. The startling incident with Washington (an assured performance by Taureen Blacque) accidentally shooting an innocent man dead is smartly handled as an honest mistake any cop could (and sometimes does) make. Helen Shaver contributes a stand-out guest turn as an assault victim who's initially reluctant to press charges against her assailant while Anna Mathias is memorably sexy as saucy masseuse Jeannie.
