Kojak (1973)

Telly Savalas as "Lt. Theo Kojak"

Who loves ya, baby? That would be Theo Kojak, the bald, lollipop-sucking New York detective who isn't afraid to bend the rules to bust the bad guys. Cynical but upbeat, Kojak not only has a talent for detecting, he also is blessed with perfect parking karma - he is always able to find a parking space right at the crime scene, even in Manhattan. Now that's power.
