  • Taut, tense and gritty hostage drama.

    9.0
    Well-written and well-acted hostage-taking drama. Intense and grittily realistc episode as Kojak only has two hours to meet the robbers' demands or else. Shows off the heroic and fearless bravado of Theo Kojak perfectly. This episode is superior to the actual pilot "The Marcus-Nelson Murders Case" and is a wonderful introduction to the series.
