Wrapped way too neat
24 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Telly Savalas has the entire Manhattan South Squad at an Italian festival run by mobster Art Metrano because he's got good information that a hit is to be made on him. Sure enough the police are decoyed away and two shots hit Metrano who thought that day to wear a bullet proof vest. A little old lady bystander wasn't as fortunate.

The two shooters were black and the natural conclusion is that they were from a Harlem mob that Metrano was vying for turf with. Some really good tips follow and the Harlem mob is on the run. But Theo Kojak doesn't like things too neat. When two witnesses drop out of the sky and positively identify two black hit men in almost the same precise language, that starts too smell for him. Poor Dan Frazer, he's just glad to get the case wrapped.

This episode marked the first appearance of Roger Robinson as Gil Weaver who occasionally shows up in the Manhattan South Squad room. He's undercover with the Harlem crew and gives a lot of information that is invaluable to Kojak.

In the end the real hit-man is set up quite beautifully. Good episode from Season one showing Kojak's unerring instincts for ferreting out the truth.
