Storyline

A popular young boxer on his way up, Tony Triano, is shotgunned to death on a dark city street by professional hit men. His family is devastated - who would want the generous Tony dead ? Especially hard-hit is Tony's mediocre stablemate Gino, who Tony helped get fights. Tony's family hires Peter Gunn to find who killed Tony. When the drunken Gino comes to Mother's nightclub to meet with Gunn, he's waylaid and beaten by the hit men. Written by David Stevens

Sub-Par
26 April 2016 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Rather flat early entry. Pete's hired to find out who killed a popular young boxer. The trail is shorter than usual and without the usual colorful characters to spice up proceedings. Likely these flaws stem from a series that's yet to find its footing. At least we get brief shots of the luscious Edie (Albright) and the gender-bending Mother (Emerson) who unfortunately died soon into the series.

In a role as friend of the murdered boxer, actor Carbone gets an extended scene. Unfortunately, it amounts to over-the-top histrionics that also amounts to over- dramatized padding. Then too, there're no surprises to the plot, and that's along with a poorly staged climactic scene. Fortunately, this entry is not typical of what turned out to be an innovative and generally superior series.
