Sloane is a freelance spy. Although he doesn't work for the government, he frequently accepts assignments from The Director, a head of a secret government agency. He's assisted by Torque, a man with a detachable hand (which can be replaced by a variety of implements drills, guns, and what-not). Written by
This show wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good. I was a big fan of The Wild Wild West and the spy genre in general, so i had high hopes for this series when it premiered. Sadly, it was underwhelming. There were occasional moments, but I kept waiting for something cool to happen. Unfortunately, it was severely limited by budget and mediocre writing.
Robert Conrad was OK in the role, but it lacked depth and he seemed to be going through he motions. Ji-Tu Cumbuka was fairly interesting as the reformed henchman turned partner, Torque, with his metal hand, of multiple uses. Otherwise, it was pretty bland. KARTEL never seemed that menacing and there wasn't much scope to the series, not to mention it was played a little too tongue-in-cheek.
It was a nice idea, but poorly executed and probably would have been better suited for the 60's.
