The options aren't good
20 October 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This is a truly sad Kojak episode. Paul Benjamin and Dorian Harewood, a pair of down and out losers if there ever were, drive by to visit Benjamin's former wife and find her beaten to death. Witnesses spot Benjamin and Harewood a jumpy junkie in need of a fix flee from police and take refuge in a Catholic church with Harewood shooting a cop along the way.

Because as it turns out Lt. Theo Kojak believes Benjamin that he didn't kill his wife. But now with a cop shooting and hostage taking the options aren't good any way you cut it.

The two hostage takers really stand out in this Kojak story. Benjamin from the first moment we meet him just has a tragic air about him. Harewood is a great example of what narcotics addiction does to twist people.

These two make the show worth watching.
