The campaign to get Chief Daniels (Jon Cypher in top slimy form) elected mayor hits several snags: Single mother Faye (an excellent Barbara Bosson) gives Daniels a scorching earful about the city's lax policy for helping single parents, a murder occurs at a shoot-out in Murray's Wonderland, and the court dismisses the Robson case. Moreover, Renko (a very funny Charles Haid) winds up with dyed green skin after busting junkie robber Nick Kassner (well played by Michael Horton), who's otherwise better known as The Emily Post Bandit.

Renko's dilemma provides some really amusing moments while the depiction of Kassner as a pitiable drug addict with a seven hundred dollar a day dope habit serves as a sterling testament to this show's bold willingness to tackle tough subject matter head on. Belker (a nicely snarly Bruce Weitz) has a great conversation with proud smut peddler Murray (an excellent portrayal by Milton Selzer), who in turn also has a terrific death speech. Jeffrey Tambor is an absolute hoot as shady lawyer (and cross dresser!) Alan Wachtel. Marilyn Jones also excels as Kassner's pathetic strung-out snitch girlfriend Desiree. The climax with Goldblume (a fine Joe Spano) handling a hostage situation proves to be quite tense and gripping. An on the money episode.
