Storyline

Detective walks from icing surrendering shooter Gimpy, so his commander asks Adam to volunteer to spy him. Adam struggles with taking the assignment on gun-happy comrade Bane, whose jacket includes 2 other recent kills, but many medals. Soon, the Shakespeare-quoting detective holds a clandestine meet with a playboy, a boxer, and a terrified woman: each fears Bane will reveal their separate crimes. Is Bane a rogue cop or is he pursuing bigger fish ? Written by David Stevens

Excellent!
15 September 2016 | by (CHICAGO, IL United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, this is the best Naked City episode of all. It's really the start of the one hour revamped version and everything and everyone clicks, particularly Paul Burke, Horace McMahon, and Eli Wallach. Even Peter Falk's role at the very beginning, is memorable. One of the all time great police dramas, with everything in synch; acting, writing, casting. Crooked cops are difficult to portray and the scriptwriter (Stirling Sillaphant) does a marvelous job. Even the wonderful black and white photography comes across so well, it adds to the mood and aura of suspicion. The producers really hit a home run by replacing James Franciscus with Paul Burke; the quintessential intellectual lawman. Wish they made TV like this today.
