Storyline

Strother Martin's third and final episode casts him as a nerdy FBI computer expert who desperately wants to get out into the field. When his bosses in Washington pooh-pooh that idea, he creates a "supercop" with the name in the episode's title and casts himself in the role (Robert Blake used the same pseudonym, with a slight change of spelling, for his part as executive producer of "Hell Town" eight years later). "Dokker" then assigns himself to a case where an Algerian smuggler was murdered for the fortune in emeralds he was carrying. The victim told Billy, while checking into his hotel, that he was going to meet someone, which makes it clear that he knew his killer. But which of several possible suspects could it be? The phony G-man proves surprisingly resourceful as he bumbles through sifting out the clues. Written by Peter Harris

Goofs

When Baretta and "Dokker" corner Charlie, a suspect, in an alley, Charlie fires five times at Baretta, who takes a swan dive to avoid the bullets. Baretta loses his gun in the fall and asks "Dokker" to cover him with gunfire. "Dokker" doesn't have a gun and Charlie fires two more shots at Baretta as he's running for his weapon. That's seven shots from a six-gun. (Yes, Charlie might have had time to at least partially reload the revolver, but he doesn't look bright enough to even think of it.) See more »

That's certainly not the best Baretta episode ever. A sort of comedy caper story about jewels stolen and smugglers ring. I really felt bored with this tale, not even amused. For once Tom Ewell, is nearly the lead character, that's the only interest in this story. One fun fight between Baretta and a professional wrestler.

The most of the summary has already been told in the plot line so, I won't repeat it. Anyway there's nothing to comment. Nothing at all.

I still have a little batch of episodes to comment and I hope they will be better than this one.

Really better.
