On the money episode
7 July 2015 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

LaRue (Kiel Martin in peak sleazy form) tries to take advantage of sharp-tongued comic Vic Hitler (a spot-on sidesplitting portrayal by Terry Kiser), who has a ton of unpaid parking tickets. Belker (well played by Bruce Weitz) endangers his relationship with Robin (solid Lisa Sutton) by trying to protect her. Goldblume (an excellent Joe Spano) and Calletano (an able Rene Enriquez) clash over rank and seniority. Coffey (likable Ed Marinaro) has his hands full dealing with a man who's high on PCP.

Calletano's concern about how he's getting older and hence is afraid he hasn't achieved all of his goals that he set for himself provides several strong and touching moments. Ditto the situation with Furillo (the always outstanding Daniel J. Travanti) worrying about Davenport (a top-rate Veronica Hamel) leaving him if she accepts a new job offer. Harry Caesar and Whitman Mayo are both funny and moving as a couple of elderly homeless guys who want to go to jail in order to improve their dire lots in life. Dennis Burkley contributes a frightening turn as monstrous brute Sonny while Pat Corley makes a welcome appearance as cagey coroner Nydorf. Plus it's a kick to see a young pre-Brat Back Ally Sheedy as a member of a group of visiting high school students.
