showing Chuck's role of Ski.



An interesting episode with Chuck playing the part of a member of a New York street gang called the Barons. James Caan is the
star of the episode, as a writer who wants to become a Barons gang member, so he can write about his experience. Walter Koenig of
Star Trek fame, is the leader of the Barons. I caught this episode from watching the RTN (Retro Television Network) and hope you
get a chance to view this episode.
