"Here be Possible Spoilers". I recently had surgery and had the time to watch all the Danger Man episodes in order. A wonderful series but when you view them all at once rather than one a week as they were broadcast, you notice some repetitious things. I see why Patrick McGoohan decided to leave if this is what the series was becoming. The go-cart sequence was one of the worst few moments ever put on the TV. Drake on a go-cart chases bad guys who have guns and circles one and makes him dizzy? Puh-Leeze! Must have been the campy Batman influence going around about then. Aubrey Morris was funny enough and the locations were convincing enough to be Rome and the atmosphere was gloomy enough, but the go-cart was too much.
