A slight smell of espionage

George Hamilton is in this episode an American former POW who, after war in Korea, decides not to return in his country and working for communist forces, because he felt to be betrayed by his fellow country men. A turncoat. This episode tells us his odyssey. A traitor, yes, but as usual in this series - I know, I repeat myself - a character not presented as pure evil. Ambivalent, as I crave for. He gets a job in a company working for the Defense; see what I mean. He will have access to For Your Eyes only documents... You have to deal here with an espionage yarn. No more no less, with a rather convincing performance, although Hamilton has never been my all time favourite, far from that. What I love in this TV show, is that there is never any happy endings, as US movie and TV industry usually gives us.
