Character actor filled time capsule.
4 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is the episode of the Shaft TV series found as a bonus on the Shaft movie Bluray. It first aired forty years ago this week. Interestingly, it's directed by Nick Colosanto. You might recognize him from his most famous role as the absent-minded "Coach" from the show, "Cheers."

The female lead, Janet Du'Bois, is famous as a regular on "Good Times." The rest of the cast is filled with a lot of very familiar character actors. So the episode is not much compared to the movie, but it's entertaining as a time capsule.

Also, it looks like Shaft might not be doing as well. He's moved out of his two-story pad with the great view and the strange clown over the bed into a TV-budget-friendly nondescript apartment.
