A Matter of Life or Death (1)

Tony initiates a sweep to find a pair of missing cops; devises an ingenious way of keeping an habitually drunk driver off the road; and deftly handles an "extraterrestrial," all the while being scrutinized by a committee searching for a new police commissioner for New York City. (Although shown as Episode 5, this is the actual pilot episode of the series.)
