A nice, weekly dose of intrigue...
19 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This a neat show where every episode promised intrigue and exotic locales around the globe. Cesar Romero played charming American diplomatic courier, Steve McQuinn, whose travels for the U.S. government regularly land him in some spot of bother. Admittedly the sets look samey when you watch a batch of episodes together, but the show is undemanding entertainment. What I found interesting is that McQuinn is an ordinary guy. He isn't a two-fisted hero that was de rigeur for shows like this at the time. Handsome and not without charm, McQuinn didn't indulge in fisticuffs, in fact in the episodes I've watched, he usually loses in a fight quite easily- but that doesn't stop him from offering help when required. Not a classic by any means, but a nice watch all the same.
