  • Kojak Flashback ! Kojak is on the trail of "The Clothesline Killer", the serial murderer he thought he killed in a shootout 8 years ago in "The Summer Of '69 " !

    This is an excellent two part episode which features some great "flashback scenes" from "The Summer Of '69". Kojak was dating a weathy heiress and was on the case of the Clothesline killer ! Like every other love interest on the series,this one just couldn't work because Kojak was of course married to his job.But this time there's another reason as well . There is some great direction and camera work in this episode,two scenes in particular feature a stop motion and still photo effect which were really cool.I also really enjoyed the music featured in the flashback scenes which was tied to Kojak's romantic memories and the case ! This is also one of those great episodes where Kojak is having trouble with the brass and is ordered off the case,which if you know Kojak,you know he aint gonna get offa the case ! This is one of my top episodes.
