What was Cannon thinking?
7 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Fritz Weaver, Robert Webber In this episode, an employee (Fritz Weaver) of a chemical company runs off with some nerve gas--and threatens to explode it. However, the public doesn't know and the company hires Cannon under false pretenses to find the guy. Cannon thinks the guy is just some embezzler--not a guy who could commit mass murder. However, there is much more to the story than this--and I won't say more because it could ruin the show for you.

The idea of a guy threatening to explode this poison cannister is pretty good. However, the motivations of the characters make little sense--hence my mediocre score. The employee seems pretty sane and is apparently doing this to stop the madness of chemical weapons--yet, when he learns that the poison is no longer being manufactured, he STILL plans on the detonation. He also apparently wants to bring lasting peace by murdering a bunch of innocents!! Huh?! As for Cannon, his thinking is even more bizarre as he shows a certain fondness for the guy! Huh?! What sort of wacky tobacky were they smoking?!
