This started off very promising and quickly petered out to a talk-fest and little else. That's fine for an Alfred Hitchock Presents drama, but this is a gritty New York City crime show. At least give us SOME action!
"The Contract" turned out to be soap opera, telling of two men's love for a young woman, whom we discover early on has been killed. Both men confess to doing it. It still sounds promising but then the older man (an actor who is Burmese-Jewish, hardly Chinese) gives his long story of how he came to know the girl, and brought her up, wants to marry her, blah, blah, blah. The rest of the story is much of the same, except we then get the young's man sad tale of woe. There is nothing but talk as we wait around for the real story to be revealed, which was so predictable even I knew it.
This was one of the worst episodes I've ever seen of this fine TV series. Guess you can't win 'em all.
