Christmas time at Manhattan South
26 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's the holiday season, but there's no rest for the weary at Manhattan South precinct. As the guys in the Detective Squad are trying to celebrate, even some of the usual hookers they bust are doing a little to brighten the event, work does interfere.

George Savalas as Stavros usually the butt of brother Telly Savalas's barbs has some moments of seriousness here. He takes an interest in Betsy Slade who comes across as a bit loopy and not just because she's been partying. She's concerned that her boyfriend has a weapon and is about to commit a crime. Turns out she's right. The scenes with Stavros and Slade are special as is the climax with Lt. Kojak and boyfriend Darrell Fetty.

A nice holiday treat from Kojak and his squad.
