Storyline

Sammy Loo's Chinese bandits step up their incendiary action, by shanghaiing ailing Scalesi boss Don Cheech in an ambulance, along with his nurse and meds. The tong gangsters resent being left out of the American Mafia diversity program that let Irish, Jews etc. in on the upper level of organized crime. With a $2 million dollar ransom from the Scalesi clan, the Manhattan tong can compete with the combo. Kojak finds that the disrupters are Chinese, but how can the NYPD or Italian gangsters root out the kidnappers in Chinatown, where they'll stand out like a Black Hand ? Written by David Stevens

Gang Vs. Gang Vs. Gang
20 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this second half of the two-part opening series, Kojak and the police finally (it takes awhile, which is understandable) to figure out what the heck is going on.

These are not the normal gang wars. The Chinese, as we know from the first episode, are the surprise "players" in this murder/robbery/kidnapping story. It's just a small group but they are daring and you never quite now what they'll do next which includes turning on each other. It's pretty interesting trying to see how all of this plays out.

Overall, a good opening for the new Kojak season, although he's still smoking. (I thought he had given that up by the end of the first season.)
