another entry into the Hallmark mystery series
13 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lea Thompson plays an ex-government agent, now a wife and mother. She is re-drafted by her ex-beau, played by Joe Penny, to help on a strange case. Thompson's work now is devising puzzles, and the government has a beaut. How can a man riding in a plane knock out the pilot, have the plane dip under the radar, and disappear from the plane in ten seconds? These types of cases were what the dashing dilettante Banacek toyed with in the '70s. The setting here is a little more ordinary but somehow more likable, thanks to its cast of Thompson, William R. Moses, and Joe Penny. It's great to see all of them again, even if it's only semi-regular TV.

This is pleasant enough fare from Dean Hargrove, who brought you the clean entertainment of Matlock, the Perry Mason TV movies, Jake and the Fatman, and many episodes of Columbo - in fact, he was the producer of the NBC Mystery Movie, which the Hallmark rotations emulate. These shows aren't as good as McCloud, Columbo, et al., but make for enjoyable watching.

By the way, all these Hallmark TV mystery movies have ratings of 6 or 7 on IMDb, which are a little on the high side, but no comments. Hmmm.
