Always Listen To Your Mothet

"Theo Kojak's" nephew gets in serious trouble and Theo has to find him and help find, then find him again, then help again.

The 17-year isn't a punk, but he has a friend who is, and always make bad decisions. Our boy isn't strong enough to stay away from the punk and gets himself into a bad situation.

Here's another example of why your mother always told you that who you hang with is extremely important.

It's an interesting story, one that starts off with a robbery of Theo's camera at his birthday party and winds up being a story about drug addiction and murder.

Off all the characters in the story, to me, the best was "Sonny South" played by veteran actor Neville Brand, a tough-guy with more lines in his face than a you-know-what. With that face, Brand made a career out of playing villains....but he's a good man in this episode. He's very good as the guy who tries to get the drugs out of Kojak's nephew's system.
