good story but just watch old NY, especially 42nd street
trashgang from Midian
30 April 2013
This is pure nostalgia for the lovers of The Duece or better know the
era around 42nd street. David finally arrives in New York and without
money he starts working at an arcade at Time Square. His boss pays off
'uncle Jason' but there's more going on. David's boss is fed up with
paying money to the mob and agrees with a friend not to pay the full
amount of money. Uncle Jason isn't happy about that and a kill list is
made. But David isn't happy with the fact and doesn't want that the two
elderly men are out to hit uncle Jason. Doing research learns David
that drugs are involved. Can he save his boss?
I really enjoyed this episode and not for the story but for two
reasons. The shots taken from New York especially the era around Time
Square and Park Avenue but also for seeing the hulk running at Time
Square. Again Bill Bixby gives an excellent performance. Just see how
his anger grows in a yellow cab.
The end credits do roll over a shot of David walking into 42nd street.
For horror buffs or porn addicts this is a must see. A lot of cinema's
and theatres were build in the late 30's but once television came in
the street had to offer what television didn't. In the 1970s these
theatres were put to new use as venues for exploitation films, either
adult pornography and sleaze, or slasher horror and dubbed martial arts
films from Hong Kong. But home video destroyed 42nd and around mid 90's
42nd was cleaned and became Disneyfied. For those ever walked on 42nd,
as I did just before it's end, it's a must see but not only for that,
just see the games at the arcade.
