Excellent episode

Richard Devon escapes from prison after David 'Richard Janssen' Diamond put him behind bars years ago. Devon's brother Charles Bronson and mother Marga Ann Deighton enlist Janssen's help to catch Devon again, thinking he's the only one who can bring him in alive and before he goes back to his criminal ways again. Police lieutenant Regis Toomey thinks Devon is out for revenge and wants to put a security detail on Janssen, who'll have none of it. He locates an old pal of Devon's and lo and behold, Devon is also there, promising to kill Janssen after retrieving some old loot. But Janssen, and Devon, have another enemy lurking in the shadows.

An excellent and exciting episode, and it has Charles Bronson ('Crime Wave, 'Death Wish') in it as well! Funnily enough, early on in the episode his mother keeps telling him to stop looking so mean, hah... Anyways, this series was really well-made and had a charismatic lead in Janssen ('The Fugitive'). This episode also has a nice twist up its sleeve near the end that leads to some fisticuffs inside a candy store. Sweet! If you're looking for a hardcore-boiled private eye series with snappy dialogue and good performances and production values, Call Mr. D.
