Method in the victims he selects
16 April 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This was one episode of Kojak where I had to wonder about the state of law enforcement in Manhattan South. Some maniac has committed two murders, a doctor and a nurse in a prominent hospital and the heat must really have been intense because the entire squad goes undercover at the hospital. Crocker becomes an intern, Stavros a janitor, etc. Captain McNeill was left all alone to answer the phones and maybe do all the other cases coming up.

As it turns out there is method in the victims he selects and once that is figured out the capture does become a close run thing because the squad does catch our killer right in the act with another victim. Helping out is hospital staff chief Michael Lerner and mental health counselor Zohra Lampert. She particularly takes it all personally as it is obvious it is one of the people she counsels and she feels it is her failure. And she and Kojak feel a mutual attraction.

Young Meeno Peluce delivers a very nice performance as a kid who is undergoing surgery and who also gets attached to Telly Savalas. But I could not buy the whole squad going undercover and leaving the rest of the crime in New York unattended.
