The Best Episodes of The Equalizer
Last Updated: Nov 16, 2018
Robert McCall is a former agent of a shadowy, unnamed government agency, who is trying to make up for the unspoken sins of his past. His atonement comes in the form of an advertisement in the New York Yellow Pages that features the quote: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer!" McCall uses his finely honed skills, and occasionally, the agents and resources from his old agency, to combat the injustices perpetrated against those who can't seek protection from the law.
