What do you do when you find a white powder? Yup, you taste it!!
21 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, there is an accident at the docks and a man is injured. At the hospital, they discover that his jacket is stuffed with cocaine! So, Drake is called in to investigate.

When snooping around the dock doesn't work, he sees another courier wearing the same jacket--so he dons the jacket and sees where it takes him. Not surprisingly, bad things happen to him, so Drake has to think fast or he won't survive this mission.

This is a fair episode of "Danger Man"--fair in that it is worth seeing and mildly diverting but it also lacks some of the nice twists I like in the shows. Actually, it's pretty ordinary and I couldn't believe how often he fell for the mickey finn.

By the way, there was a 10000% stupid scene early in the show. After discovering the padded jacket is filled with little white packets, the doctor rips open one and tastes it!!! What if it was filled with Strychnine or Cyanide?!?! I hate it when TV and movies use this cliché. Cops, doctors and FBI men do NOT routinely taste a suspicious powder to see what it is--this is really dangerous and stupid!
