Telly Savalas returns as New York's incorruptible and lollypop sucking detective Theo Kojak who gets involved in exposing some truly big time corruption. It all begins with a homeless dude who rates a big time hit.
Joseph Ragno and Matthew Cowles see a bike messenger get clipped trying to
pass a car when the door opens. They lift some of the spilled items and find
bearer bonds made out to City Commissioner Alan North. So then these two
geniuses decide to hold the guy up for a reward. The reward is that Ragno
is run down with an automobile by a pair of hitmen working for some Colombian drug dealers.
But Cowles knows Ragno at one time was a snitch for Lt. Theo Kojak in Manhattan South and he goes calling on Telly Savalas now an Inspector. Soon
after Savalas calls on North he gets dead, those Colombian hitmen also get
dead. Someone is really trying to cover their tracks.
With the doggedness that Savalas was known for on his TV series in the 70s
Kojak goes up the food chain. Sadly it may lead to millionaire builder Darren
McGavin, father-in-law to be of former Midtown South Detective Bobby Crocker now an ADA. Kevin Dobson is ready to marry Barbara Garrick, McGavin's daughter.
Some very determined Colombians also try to frame Kojak's new assistant
Andre Braugher for a murder to throw him. If they knew Kojak it would only
make him madder than ever.
Nice ensemble cast delivers the goods for the viewers.
