I have a special fondness for this series, centering around one particular episode:
Chance is hired by a judge, who happens to be his father's best friend! Chance isn't too enthusiastic about going home, since his father still thinks he has a dead-end desk job at the VA, as per Chance's cover story: During dinner, his father says he's got a friend at some company who can get him a better job...
Later, Chance shoots some pool with his father - while disguised as the judge! So, he gets to dispense some advice like "Why don't you go easy on the kid! He might surprise you!" Great scene!
His father finally discovers Chance's secret, and that final scene still brings a tear to my eye - going something like "I always thought you were wasting your life away... but a HUMAN TARGET?! I'm so proud of you."
