Dangers Assignment is great
18 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the best show I never heard of. I watched one show on a compilation DVD, and then went looking for more. What's surprising is that there are plenty of episodes out there on DVD -- including Dangerous Assignment Collection I and II. The show is about an international spy Steve Mitchell. He gets sent off to a different country every episode to do some impossible task. He usually accomplishes it, but I didn't say I love the show for its realism or the quality acting...it's just fun. And Craig Stevens must have taken his "cool" lessons from Brian Donlevy in order to play Peter Gunn. It's fun to watch. And the quality is much higher than I expected.
