No, this is not "The Fugitive", but Cannon is out to find the one-armed man.
8 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Treasure of San Ignacio" is far from a great episode of "Cannon". Still, however, it is mildly entertaining and worth seeing.

The show begins with some hoods committing a very strange and improbable crime--they rob a Mexican church of some holy relics!! This is by far the weakest aspect of the show, as it seems like a crime you'll never see. Still, the priest (Alejandro Rey) seeks out Frank Cannon's help in recovering the stolen items. Soon, however, the crooks contact the priest--it's a case of ransom and Cannon is the man to make the deal. But when the deal goes sour, the priest is kidnapped and Cannon is in search of a one-armed man.

This is an entertaining show but as I mentioned above, the crime seemed very, very improbable. Not bad at all--but one that just seemed like a bit of a let-down compared to most other season one shows.
