A veteran cop, driving with a rookie, has a hunch about a guy driving ahead of him. He plays the hunch and stops the guy. It was a smart hunch, but he was a very good cop. I say "was" because moments later, the vet and the kid get ambushed by the driver of that car and two more guys who enter the scene. The kid isn't hurt, but now it is up to Kojak and his crew to figure this one out.
It's quickly deduced that these aren't "repo" guys they are dealing with, but a pretty smart car theft group.
Watching this now in 2012, it was kind of weird seeing the leader of the group played by David Ogden Stiers, whom I was used to see playing a snobbish nerd-type on "MASH" for so long ("Major Charles Winchester"). In here, he doesn't sound like that at all, in the role of "Mr. Roberts." Well.....that's called acting. At the time, nobody had much heard of Stiers, who went on to have a long and successful career, and is still working.
Overall, another good episode worth watching.
