Key points:- it never generated strong ratings;
- it lasted only two seasons;
- the Polish American Congress gave the series an award for portraying Polish Americans in a good manner.
NB: The need for an organization to do this only proves how commonplace it was for Hollywood to use "unfair and unfavourable" characterisations of Poland, Poles and Polonia.
Indeed, Hollywood's raging hostility against Poland, Poles and Polonia continued unabated as recently as last year:- in 2018, Banacek was the subject of an episode-length parody in The Simpsons
Kazińsky is a Polish American ex-criminal who becomes a barrister after doing his time in prison where he studies law.
Are you sure the character was "Polish American"?
Using "y" instead of "i" for the adjectival ending was prevalent among Jews and Russians rather than Polonia and never Poles.
But, of course, Hollywood needs a Polish character that in their biased heads must always be the complete opposite of the Ivy League educated Jewish lawyers who never missed temple while growing up.
Once again, more negative portrayals of Poland, Poles, and Polonia.
Hollywood's message: "Make sure you run a criminal background check on that Polish lawyer before you even think of hiring him!"
And who are Kazinsky's clients? Naturally, not much different than himself: former fellow inmates; murderers; racketeers; mistresses, prostitutes.
Certainly not the high net worth clients Jewish lawyers would attract.
Hey, any episodes where "Kaz" turned the life around of a delinquent Jew with a rap sheet longer than the Wailing Wall?
Where he helped smash and lock-up a rabbinic organ trafficking ring? (True crime story by the way too!)
Nope. Of course not.
That's not Hollywood's modus operandi when it comes to their war on Poland, Poles and Polonia.
