"Shaft: The Capricorn Murders" was another pretty enjoyable TV episode
14 June 2019 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This ep of "Shaft" concerns a rich Caucasion woman (Cathy Lee Crosby) who's traumatized when she finds out something about her husband. So she calls John Shaft. This was another enjoyable "Shaft" TV episode even though compared to the theatrical movie series, these are pretty bland even with some good action. Still, I recommend "Shaft: The Capricorn Murders".
