Bang-up episode
22 January 2016 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Fisk (a sturdy George Coe) gets taken hostage by Hector (an intense portrayal by Panchito Gomez) while campaigning in the ghetto. Mahoney (a nicely hateful turn by Ron Parady) continues his crusade against the cops of Hill Street. Hill (a fine Michael Warren) starts losing friends with his cocky new attitude.

The hostage situation provides plenty of suspense and puts Goldblume (Joe Spano, excellent) in a tight spot as he tries to keep the peace, but ultimately fails to do so because of too much intervention from chief Daniels (Jon Cypher in super obnoxious form) and thus the whole situation leads to a startling tragic conclusion for Hector. A desk-bound Belker (essayed with trademark growly gusto by Bruce Weitz) serves as a prime source of gut-busting humor, with the hilarious highlight occurring when he foils a robbery while on his lunch break. Hill's transformation into an unlikable jerk in the wake of winning the lottery makes a valid point on how having lots of money can bring the worst in people. And the plight of hapless immigrant Kiki (a sympathetic performance by Clinton Derricks-Carroll) proves to be quite touching.
