Worthwhile episode
9 August 2010 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

LaRue (Kiel Martin in splendidly sleazy form) gets himself in trouble when he takes meddlesome TV reporter Cynthia Chase (nicely played by the lovely Andrea Marcovicci) on a liquor store stakeout. Renko (Charles Haid at his furious best) and Hill (Michael Warren) continue to have problems with each other. Belker (Bruce Weitz) takes Debbie Kaplan (the gorgeous Gela Jacobson) on a fake stakeout as a date. This episode delivers a few very funny and inspired comic moments: Goldblume (Joe Spano) accuses the racist and overzealous Hunter (a delightfully deadpan James B. Sikking) of being a latent homosexual and Renko takes two hookers out to a posh restaurant. Moreover, we also see the beginnings of LaRue's alcoholism and find out that Belker is basically a decent and moral guy underneath his gruff mad dog exterior(Belker refuses to have sex with an aggressively turned-on Debbie because he doesn't know her well enough yet). Director Arnold Laven stages an exciting shoot-out in a liquor store with real skill and aplomb. This episode further benefits from sturdy guest turns by Jeff Seymour as conflicted rookie cop Santini, Panchito Gomez as surly juvenile offender Hector Ruiz, and Rob Berger as twitchy junkie Eddie.
