Captain McNeill's sister-in-law Shelley Winters
22 August 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

If Theo Kojak had any hair left on top of the dome he'd have torn it out with all the tsouris he has to endure for the sake of Shelley Winters.

Winters is the widow of Dan Frazer's brother who was also a cop and killed in the line of duty. So that gives him two reasons to look out for. Why he and the rest of the squad feel the need to keep Captain McNeill out of the loop I can't figure out.

Telly Savalas and the squad are also babysitting a real crybaby of a witness in Basil Hoffman and Winters gets involved in that.

The episode is a bit silly but you have to see what Winters gets involved in to earn a few extra dollars.
