decent cop show, but not Kojak
7 April 2005 | by fsckSee all my reviews

I watched the two hour pilot and the first two episodes and came away thinking that this could turn into a decent cop show. The story lines remind me of some episodes of "Police Story". But the show avoids the rawness you could find in "NYPD Blue". The only problem I have with the show is that it doesn't really have much in common with the original Kojack series besides the lolly pops. Telly Savalas gave us a smart, slick detective and because of that, he was cool. This new Kojak tries to be cool first and be smart and slick afterwards. It just doesn't have that old "Kojak" feel at all. They should have made this into it's own show instead of trying to capitalize on an old series.
