Storyline

A prisoner, whom Tony arrested before his trial and conviction, is executed on death row in Pennsylvania. The next day a prisoner in Albany State Prison confesses to the murders for which the other man was executed. The family files a wrongful death suit and Tony is one of the defendants. Then, in a meeting with Tony, the confessor says if Tony will clear him of the two murders for which he's to be executed, he will admit to lying about the murders for which the original convict was executed.

Post-series Commish episode
14 September 2002 | by budikavlanSee all my reviews

This telefilm was essentially a long episode of the series, but the series had ended. The plot concerned a death-row inmate (Stockwell) whose guilt was in doubt, and Tony worked to clear up the matter. The problems which plagued the series remained in evidence here: the elements which had made "The Commish" so likeable and comfortable to watch had departed with the various supporting cast members. This was never a show about great suspense or intricate plotting--it was about humor and human interaction.
