A spy show with less violence and more cunning.
15 August 2006 | by (Steubenville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This program was based on the files of a real government agent. To what extent the shows are actual cases I am not sure, but they are probably closer to real cases than many other programs of this genre because they aren't always extremely exciting. Each assignment has Ken Thurston doing something rather different, not unlike "Dangerous Assignment" or other programs of the era, but the stories are more credible and less fantastic. Still, Ken's abilities seem endless. In one episode, he poses as an Air Force pilot, and is also fully capable of flying a bomber. While violence occurs on occasion, most of the story involve outwitting the Communists through careful planning and sometimes quick thinking. This is not an action-adventure packed with big crashes, but rather one that avoids the worst by finding a way out of danger. If one is looking for the more fantastic "James Bond" type of show, this is not it, but the shows are enjoyable in their own right.
