Old Gun in the Toupee Trick
9 February 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Half hearted episode has KAOS using a Roman steam bath to get information from unsuspecting politicians. The master villain behind the plan is Montague Leach (Ronald Long, who did such a great job as "Leadside" earlier in the season).

The funniest material again seems to go to co-star Robert Karvelas as Larabee, who is wonderfully deadpan dumb. However, Max does get to do a "the old gun in the toupee trick" line and he also gets to drag out the "I hope I wasn't out of line with that crack about..." bit. But other than a scene where he and the Chief are hiding in a laundry basket trying to make a phone call (to Larabee) they just don't get much in the way of strong material.
