I was very young, and thought that Glenn was a genius at figuring out crimes.
28 September 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Rod Taylor (A Gathering of Eagles, The Birds) played Glenn Evans, if my memory serves me well, was a journalist living in Hong Kong. He always wore those beautiful tailored suits. I guess the tailoring of nice clothes is one thing that Hong Kong is famous for. It was a black and white series. I watched it dubbed. I did not realize that the series was so short lived. My impression is that they kept showing the same episodes over and over and that is why it lasted a long time. I also had to go to bed early because I was in junior high, or early high school by the time the series got dubbed. I was not allowed to stay up late. That is why it seems that the series lasted years. It was a murder mystery type of series. Well, well, people like to make fun of Jessica Fletcher (Murder She Wrote), because she is a writer and every place she goes there is a murder, well Hong Kong was about the same. The leading person was a male. I guess some men do not realize how many murders there are in show like: NYPD Blue, Law and Order, Homicide, etc. This issue just cracks me up! There were other people in the cast such as: Lloyd Bochner (Dynasty), Neil Campbell, and Jack Kruschen (The Apartment, 'Til There Was You), Tully. Mai Tai Sing (Strange Portrait) Ching Mei, was the local help for those guys. I used to love watching the series. It seems like thousands years ago now, but I remember the landscape of Hong King, the boats and everybody biking. I have always wanted to go to China especially after watching this series. I was very young, and thought that Glenn was a genius at figuring out crimes. I am sure that today I would think that the series was predictable. I have great memories of the series as a whole, but I do not remember much detail.
