Great episode with great stars
17 March 2009 | by udar55See all my reviews

The star power of the show is displayed right off the bat with this season 1 second episode starring Tony Lo Bianco (who was fresh off THE HONEYMOON KILLERS and THE FRENCH CONNECTION). Det. Tony Calabrese (Lo Bianco) is trying to get info on a bank robbing group lead by a guy nicknamed Baldie. He turns to a small time crook and junkie Stan (Marjoe Gortner) to try and get a feel for the word on the street. Over time, Tony begins to trust and care about Stan. This is a great episode with strong performances by both Lo Bianco and Gortner, but you can pretty much guess where it will end up. Lo Bianco's Calabrese character popped up sporadically over the series first three years. Co-starring Michael Ansara and Sharon Farrell.
