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

Spartan detective drama
30 December 2009 | by (Phoenix, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

This is character driven drama with the players doing an excellent job. Ken Lynch and Herschel Bernardi are excellent without over-acting. Antony Carbone plays a suffering friend well. The production design reminds me of an early, BW Avengers episode with minimal sets and the focus on the words & actions of the characters.

Blake Edwards himself directed (and co-wrote). He knows the context of his series well and confidently keeps the actors in the moment. A comedic bit is added about half way through that shows Edwards' comedic tendency without detracting from the overall flow. This is one of the best examples of episodic television.
