When Edward Sharp, a British electronics expert, resigns from the secret service, John Drake takes his place in an attempt to discover why. He is soon directed to an island known as Shinda Shima, which has been deserted by its inhabitants ever since several mysterious deaths. There he finds the enemy headquartered and delivers them Sharp's smuggled electronics. It soon becomes obvious that they plan to use Sharp's goods to break the United Nation's code. Drake returns from the island and, with help from its former residents, launches an attempt to take back Shinda Shima. Written by Twenty Penguins

Not one of the good ones
29 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last two episodes of "Danger Man", "Koroshi" and "Shinda Shima" are far from the best in the series. In fact both appear to suffer from a distinct deficit of oriental extras, both of the evil organizations seem to be 95% staffed with middle-aged British guys!

The plot in "Shinda Shima" has only a slim connection to the previous episode, "Koroshi". The scripts of both are uninspired and there's just not enough real plot to work with.

All in all, I wish these, the only color episodes of "Danger Man", had been filmed in England so we could at least see Drake's car and apartment in color.
