Short-lived (like its star, alas) but okay spy fluff.
If you follow your espionage shows, you might find the premise of "Fortune Hunter" a bit familiar - our hero (the late Mark Frankel) is a secret agent turned recovery specialist who has an unseen partner; his aide at HQ (John Robert Hoffman) sees what he sees via special equipment and gives him help and encouragement. "Search" did this back in the 1970s with Hugh O'Brian and Doug McClure, but that didn't have any big success either.
Not that this show really deserved it, but it should at least have gotten to finish its season; the series took itself seriously enough for his missions to have some real danger, but never took itself totally seriously, making it ideal viewing in the Stephen J. Cannell/Glen A. Larson mode. "Fortune Hunter" isn't remotely in the league of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." or "24," but I liked it.
