Storyline

A nebbish helps his therapy group by bombing the nemeses they whine about. Kojak can't find a pattern in the serial murders, especially after an innocent secretary who just moved to Manhattan is blown up, but he knows there is one because she was killed in a parking space with her name on it. NYPD holds back that the bombs all come in brown paper bags, to fend off serial confessors. Danny Zucco can't wait for his next group to see the joy he's brought to his adopted family. Written by David Stevens

Therapy in Dynamite
27 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The late Steven Keats was a superb(albeit underrated)actor of the 1970's, but he was in rare form as Danny Zucco, demented protagonist of one of Kojak's best episodes,"Therapy in Dynamite."

Zucco, a loner who works in a hardware store (and reminiscent of George Metesky or Ted Kaczynski) seeks the approbation of his fellow members in a therapy group by obligingly sending bombs to anyone who has upset one of his self-styled "friends"(who are basically unaware of their seemingly "nerdy" compatriot's homicidal propensities.)

When Detective Kojak determines that Danny Zucco is the culprit in a series of bombings, Steven Keats (as the psychotic Zucco) gives a spectacular performance as he hysterically "super-novas" (with Zucco ending up shot)- leaving Kojak to try to determine if the dead Zucco has left any more unpleasant little postmortem "surprises...

A taut, tense, eminently New York drama that leads to an unnerving conclusion; if you see no other episode of "Kojak", definitely watch this one - it's well worth it.
