One of the series best

Laser Blazer has long been one of my favorite episodes. Leonard Strong as Lin Chan stole the show. My favorite line of his was, after being thoroughly frustrated in getting Smart to take the blazer, when Smart talks about coming back tomorrow, Chan says, "Tomorrow, I not be here. I be in lunatic asylum!" Then, they followed up that line by having Max tell the Chief back in Washington that he went back the next day but the shop was closed. When the Chief asks if he tried to talk to Chan, Max says he did, "but they weren't allowing him any visitors." The Chief's response when Max asks, "Do you know what you're saying?" always cracks me up even though I remember it. (I purposely won't write it here--it's only funny while seeing the scene.) This episode had some great visual gags relating to the power of the laser. Ralph Manza as a tailor was super (I always loved him as Jay, Banacek's chauffeur) and Julie Newmar as Ingrid got Max all discombobulated with her offer of a massage.

This was certainly one of the sillier episodes in terms of the plot, but to me it worked because it was so silly.

To explain my rating, I think a great series can have 1-3 episodes each year that reach 10. Significantly more devalues that score. This was one of the few tens in the fourth season.
