Pretty weak.
2 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Bookie" begins with Lt. Pete Kille being given a mickey and then incriminating photos of him and a bimbo were taken. Obviously someone is trying to ruin his career and he seeks help from his friend, Richard Diamond. However, Kille's problems get MUCH worse when he's set up to arrive in a room with a dead body--and once again he's been set up. So far, the story is pretty interesting and I had no problems with the plot. HOWEVER, it's very obvious the writer had no idea how to end it. At the end, Diamond and Kille go to the office of the guy they think is responsible. Diamond stays in the room and beats the crap out of the baddie while the lieutenant stays outside and prevents anyone from rescuing the boss. And, in only a matter of seconds, the baddie (Ross Martin) gives Diamond the negative of the photo and the murder is magically solved. I hate rarely seen a lamer ending to a detective show and if they all worked out this easily, Diamond should have just beaten up all the suspects instead of going to the trouble of doing a professional investigation!! Weak and stupid.
