Producer Burt Nodella contributes an inspired script that revolves around a KAOS plot to blow up US space agencies and set the space program back on its heels. Two space agency buildings next to golf courses have already been destroyed. The Chief orders Max and 99 to try and stop this one (apparently located next to the Pomona Golf Club if the signs on the golf carts can be trusted). To get an edge in his game with the suspicious golf pro Chuck Cramer (Charles Bateman) Smart again goes to the beautiful Dr. Simon (last time played by Ann Elder, not sure who's playing her in this episode) for some secret weapons. The weapons include a magnetic golf ball and an iron that will guarantee Smart's shot will be straight.

Irwin Charone (last seen as a British Intelligence officer in "Expendable Agent") plays the owner of the golf club, who turns out to be working with Cramer.

There's some great verbal byplay in this that we haven;t seen on the series in awhile between Max and the Chief ("Fred flew to Frankfurt on Friday") and Max and 99 ("Who will give us when and how..."). There is also a funny low speed gold cart chase and Larabee again shines when given a brief moment.

In fact the only thing really wrong with this one is the continuity as Max tries to bring down the mortar fired at the space agency. Although she is supposed to be in the cart chase, we hear 99's voice urging Max on. She's not supposed to even be there! Then there's a cutaway closeup of 99 urging Max on. A moment later she enters the scene, now wearing sunglasses not seen in either of the previous two shots. Very odd for a director as skilled as Jay Sandrich.

Yet despite these flaws, "I Shot 86" is one of the better efforts of the 4th season and shows that with a little work, the series might have had a little more juice left in it.
