This episode of "Danger Man" is set in Hong Kong. It seems that the broadcasts from a Voice of America-like group into China are somehow being used to transmit secret anti-Western messages. In particular, they are using some English language class broadcasts. What this code is, who's behind it and how to stop it--all that is assigned to John Drake (Patrick McGoohan). Drake has to get hired to work with this radio show--which is surprisingly easy. Next, he needs to scatter bait and see if there are any takers. Naturally there are, but this also might result in Drake's demise.

I think this episode works a bit better because the American guy (Gary Cockrell) is pretty funny. Otherwise, it's a pretty ordinary episode--worth seeing not certainly not a must-see.
