Patrick Mcgoohan had just worked exhaustively for the past 5+ years, first, on the half- hour series, then the hour-longs, of what for me, and many others, is one of the BEST programs TV's had to offer.
KOROSHI is the last two episodes (only ones in color) of (what was) DANGER MAN's final - aborted season.
I first saw KOROSHI, and was thrilled to see it, as it had been YEARS since I'd seen DANGER MAN (before DVD's and, yes, even before Videotapes, 'kids').
What had been a thrilling show, with terrific scripts, and terrific acting, had it's life sucked out - by, ironically - color.
In the intervening years, since I first saw KOROSHI, DANGER MAN has been released on DVD. On them are the two episodes that make up KORSHI, one being an episode bearing this title, the other, SHINDA SHIMA.
I WISH I could say that independently seen, the episodes were stronger.
Sadly, they're not.
As another reviewer said, it just seemed to be trying to be 'Bond-like,' and one of the great things about DANGER MAN was John Drake's lack of guns (as Drake once said; I don't like guns. They're noisy, and they hurt people. I do very well with my hands).
I think the ONLY good thing about KOROSHI, is knowing that, as Mcgoohan's interest in continuing DANGER MAN had left, his mind had drifted to creating the most original, thought provoking television series television had seen.
The PRISONER was about to be born.
